Del Norte youth freestyle in Fresno

One of the biggest kids freestyle wrestling tournaments in the state took place in Fresno over the weekend, and 13 Del Norte athletes competed for a coveted California USA Wrestling Kids Freestyle state championship.

The Smith River duo of Thunder and Wyatt Lewis continued their decorated 2016 season by completing a triple crown, after previously winning the CAUSA folkstyle and Greco-Roman state titles this year.

Reel Deal: Halibut still hard to come by despite calm ocean conditions

The weather on the ocean late in the week was about as good as it has been all season, and sportfishermen were able to take advantage, with several halibut caught out of Crescent City Thursday. Up in Oregon, anglers also had some decent luck targeting salmon out of Brookings on Thursday. Although conditions remained good through Friday, both the halibut fishing in California and salmon fishing in Oregon reportedly slowed down significantly.

Winds are expected to pick up on the ocean over the weekend, stretching into early next week, making ocean fishing difficult until at least Tuesday.

Reel Deal: Halibut are finally here

The start of the second halibut opening in California has been more successful for anglers than the first, with several of the hefty fish reportedly hauled in since the season re-opened on Wednesday. The salmon season also reportedly finished relatively strong by the time the season closed Tuesday after a fairly slow start in mid-May.

Rockfish have remained plentiful in the area, while numbers of lingcod seem to be slowly increasing.

Meanwhile, fishing on the Klamath River is starting to produce some salmon, though only a few per day.

Warrior Memories: Seeing Regin reminds me of my Loftin teammate, former player

It is just a short time until graduation is here and another great class of Warriors leave to pursue the next phase of their lives.

Being the crazy Warrior fan that I am, I always hate to see athletes leave that I have really enjoyed watching. That may be more so this year than usual.

Successful AAU seasons wraps up in Reno

Three Del Norte AAU basketball teams competed among 1,000 boys and girls squads from all over the West Coast at the Jam On It Reno Memorial Day Tournament May 28–30, played mostly at the Reno-Sparks Convention Center. Two of the three local teams ended up with a loss to the eventual champion of their respective brackets, bringing home runner up (West Coast Storm), third place (Lady Warrior 8th grade) and seventh place (Warrior 8th grade) finishes.

The Memorial Day Tournament is dubbed “The World’s Largest Basketball Tournament” by promoters and featured an estimated 15,000 players and coaches competing on 75 courts, over 50 of which were jammed into the convention center.

Warrior Memories: Red and white Warriors always bring Les Horn to mind

When I look at the old Red and White Warrior blanket that now hangs in the museum, I always see under 1949 the name Les Horn. 

Les was a running back on my first Warrior football team. He helped teach me early in my football career what football was really like. In all my years playing football I never ran into a back that could get their pads as low as Les when he was being tackled. It always seemed like all you could see were his shoe laces. Anytime we needed just 3 or 4 yards, Les would get them. 

Swan, Makela medal on first day of Meet of Champions
