The wait to finally see game action ends tonight as the Warriors host Central Valley of Shasta Lake at 8:30 p.m. in the annual Rotary Warrior Classic.
“We’re excited,” head coach Scott Alexander said before practice on Wednesday. “We’re tired of playing against ourselves in practice.”
Del Norte (2-1) last played on Dec. 7 at the championship game of a tournament in Yreka, where they lost to Brookings-Harbor 47-32.
“I think we’re ready,” senior starter Cole Lesley said, adding the squad has been focused in practice and has learned from the mistakes made in the Brookings game. “I think that’s behind us.”
Alexander said practices “have been good overall.”
The keys to tonight’s game is to try to stay sharp despite a lack of playing time, play tenacious, tough defense, and be smart on offense, looking for the open shot and not making silly mistakes, Alexander said.
