Warrior Girls

In the consolation match early Saturday morning the Warriors pulled off the two point win. While the contest was close, the Warriors were in control for the majority of the game, head coach Buzz McCulloch said.

The squad has steadily improved each game, McCulloch said, and played their best contest of the year against a good Mazama team which downed the Warriors for the Yreka title last season.

A key was free throw shooting, as the Warriors went 9-for-11 after going 4-for-14 from the line in the fourth quarter and overtime in their season opener.

It may have been only a practice match for the Del Norte High wrestling team, but it was obvious it was more than that.

Unlike other sports, wrestlers can challenge each other to determine who will wrestle in the next match in each weight class.

In one match at practice on Wednesday, Ivan Puente gave Barrick Sala, who won the Humboldt-Del Norte Conference title at 189 pounds last year as a freshman, all that he could handle. As the entire team looked on  Puente took a 6-2 lead before Sala had a late flourish to pin Puente for the win.

“That was a good effort,” head coach Aaron Schaad told both his grapplers, commending Puente for  his excellent effort in nearly unseating Sala.

With even practices pushing each wrestler to the max, the team is quite prepared for another successful year on the mat.

Junior Jordan Lacy said everyone pushes each other at every practice and said that bodes well when they face other schools.

“We train hard,” he said. “I’ve got good workout partners here.”

On Wednesday night the girls squad was hard at work as they got in one last practice before the season opener.

“I think we’re doing alright,” head coach Buzz McCulloch said. “We’re excited to play,  although I wish we had a few more practices.” McCulloch said practices began a week later this year, but said while there is always room for improvement, especially before the season begins, he feels that for the most part the team is ready to begin play.

The Warriors were 8-17 last season and were winless in the Big 5 Conference.
