During the cold, wet winter months on the coast, the Del Norte Recreation Department youth basketball league has kept 375 kids from 5 to 12 years old active and fit.

John Horner, Del Norte County Director of Recreation said the league has become a popular option for kids.
When he coached as a high school student in 1993-1994, the league was just for 5th and 6th graders.

Now, with boys and girls as young as five participating, it has opened up the sport here in Del Norte County to a wider variety of ages.

“We felt that it’s important to have this program here,” Horner said, adding it gives the kids a positive outlet where they make new friends and become more fit. The game teaches them about hard work and discipline and gets children out of the house.

Reigning state heavyweight champion Roger “Bronc” McCovey making easy work of the competition, taking first place and earning his third straight berth to state at the Northcoast Section wrestling championships was expected.

Having his close friend and Del Norte High teammate, unranked Joey Kravitz, earn a second-place finish at 145 pounds and his own trip to state was a pleasant surprise.

The two earned the state berths at the NCS championships held in Newark in the Bay Area on Friday and Saturday.

 The top four grapplers in each division at the NCS event earned a trip to the state tournament, which begins Friday in Bakersfield.
