DN competes in HDNC singles championships

The Del Norte High boys tennis team had two players win matches at the Humboldt-Del Norte Conference singles championships in Fortuna on Saturday.

Sophomore Brandon Ford upset No. 2 seed Jimmy Griggs of Ferndale in  No. 1  singles play. Ford won in two sets 6-3, 6-3.

“He played a really good match,” Warrior head coach Kirk Olesen said. In his second match Ford lost to Gabe Trepanier, 6-2, 6-2. Trepanier went on to the title match where he fell to Brendan Winnacott of Arcata.

In No. 6 singles play senior Kong Her of Del Norte downed Joshua Hernandez of McKi­nleyville 6-1, 6-0.

Her went on to the title match against Nathan Hill of Eureka. In a hard fought contest Hill won the first set 6-1, with Her winning the second set 6-3. Her fell in a 7-4 tiebreaker in the third set.

DN Warriors drop game to Eureka Loggers 6-1

The Del Norte High baseball team fell to Big 4 Conference rival Eureka 6-1 Friday afternoon.

The game did not start out well for the Warriors as Del Norte gave up two walks and a home run to the first three Logger batters they faced to  quickly fall behind 3-0.

“We didn’t start out really well,” Del Norte head coach Pablo Lorenzi said. “We walked too many people.”

Eureka extended its lead with three more runs in the third inning.

The Warriors scored their lone run in the sixth inning.

Del Norte dropped to 0-3 in the conference.

At this time Del Norte is 4-8 overall. That could change. This week, it was announced that Grants Pass, Ore., which Del Norte lost to in doubleheader action last weekend, had to forfeit 11 games due to having an ineligible player.

Lorenzi said the team should know by next week what this means for them. Normally, he said, the forfeited games go as 1-0 wins, but he was not sure what the end result would be.

Zack Heglemeyer was 2-for-4, Logan Lesina went 1-for 3 and Greg Kirby was 1-for-1 with an RBI for Del Norte.

Former Del Norte High football standouts Trevor Rook and Saxon Schultz hope to make an impact in their second year on the Shasta College Knights gridiron squad this fall.

The Knights begin spring practice on Monday, and both Rook and Schultz say they can’t wait to begin football up in Redding again.

“I’m feeling really good and I’m starting to know the system well,” said Schultz.

Both players are 2008 Del Norte graduates who had terrific careers as Warriors and played major roles in the football squad winning the Big 5 Conference in 2005, 2006, and 2007.

Schultz, a first team Big 5 Conference football selection as a senior while playing tight end, was a key component of the Warriors’ juggernaut offense in 2007 that went undefeated in the regular season and came within one game of a Northcoast Section title game.

Del Norte opponent Grants Pass forfeits 11 baseball games

The Grants Pass High School baseball team, which Del Norte High played last weekend, has to forfeit 11 baseball games due to having an ineligible player on its roster.

According to an article in the Grants Pass Daily Courier, Grants Pass High athletics officials learned Tuesday that outfielder Levi Darling lives in the North Valley School District.

An anonymous call to the district office touched off an investigation. Grants Pass High reported the issue to the Oregon School Activities Association.

Because of this Grants Pass will forfeit the 11 games it has played so far this season.

On Saturday in Crescent City, Grants Pass defeated Del Norte 15-1, 10-3 in doubleheader action.

When reached Wednesday night, Warrior head coach Pablo Lorenzi said he was unaware that Grants Pass had forfited their games.

He said he would look into the situation and see what this means for Del Norte and the games played last weekend.

Bronc takes 5th in nation

Illness hampers Del Norte star

Before taking the mat for the fifth-place match at the National High School Coaches Association Senior Nationals in Virginia Beach, Va., on Sunday, Roger “Bronc” McCovey considered forfeiting.

The two-time California heavyweight wrestling champion from Del Norte High  had been suffering from a  flu bug since Sat­urday.

He felt nauseous, like he was going to throw up, and his arms and legs felt heavy.

But Bronc decided to give it all he could muster and wrestle. He then dominated Justin Britt of Missouri, 11-1, to take 5th place and earn All-American honors for the second straight year.

“He was a big guy,” McCovey said in a telephone interview Sunday night, adding, “I wrestled defensively.”

McCovey places 5th nationally

For the second straight year, Roger “Bronc” McCovey has earned  All-American wrestling honors.

Read more...The Del Norte High School senior heavyweight downed Justin Britt of Missouri 11-1 Sunday afternoon to take 5th place in the extremely competitive 64-man heavyweight field at the National High School Coaches Association Senior Nationals in Virginia Beach, Va.

Last year at the junior nationals in Virginia Beach, McCovey took third. The top eight finishers earn All-American honors.

While the two-time undefeated state of California heavyweight champion did not fulfill his goal of becoming a national champion, being an All-American for two straight years is a stellar accomplishment for any wrestler and cements his status as one of the top grapplers in the nation.

Seven of the top-13-ranked heavyweights in the country, including McCovey, participated at nationals.

Bronc wins by pin, 12-0 at nationals
