It was a good year for middle school basketball in Del Norte County, and the future Warrior youngsters finished their respective seasons with a bang at the 48th Annual Crescent City Jaycees Boys Basketball Tournament, which features 56 teams from all over Northern California.

Del Norte doesn’t always have a representative in the tournament’s toughest division — AAA — but in 2016 both Redwood and Crescent Elk competed against some of the best teams in Northern California in the top bracket.

Warrior baseball is deep and versatile

The Del Norte baseball team only has two seniors on its roster this year, but the young Warrior squad still plans on competing for a Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 championship this season.

The Warriors lose four seniors off of last year’s squad but return a pair of seniors, in addition to five juniors who played in at least nine varsity games last year. Sophomores Ryan Janeira and Cole Harper also played in 14 and 15 games, respectively, as freshmen last year.

The Del Norte boys and girls track teams kick off their season on Thursday and Friday with their third annual Heptathlon Fundraiser. The heptathlon, a Del Norte-only competition, provided the first taste of competition this season for the track teams, and it was the first competitive high school track experience for about half of the roughly 60 athletes this year, according to head coach Samuel Escobar.

McAlexander grabs two wins at state wrestling tournament

Del Norte heavyweight Garrett McAlexander’s first year of wrestling came to a close on Friday but before it did, he accomplished feats nearly unthinkable for an inexperienced grappler.

McAlexander won his first two matches of the day at the California Interscholastic Federation State Wrestling Tournament in Bakersfield on Friday before being knocked  out of the championship bracket by the fifth-ranked wrestler in the entire state.

“Overall it was a great trip,” said Del Norte head coach Clinton Schaad. “He is only a junior, so he is coming back. The things that he has done this year would be a huge accomplishment for a lifetime wrestler, let alone a first-year guy. We are really proud of him.”

Warrior Memories: Templeton was a big lefty and a fun teammate

It is hard to look back at baseball in Crescent City without the name of 1953 Warrior graduate Lee Templeton coming to mind.

Lee was a great big kid who came to Del Norte as a freshman. Right from the start he established that he was going to be a fun Warrior to watch.

Reel Deal: Inconsistent fishing as Smith, Chetco rise and fall quickly

Although there are reportedly still plenty of fresh fish coming into the Smith and Chetco rivers this week, fishing has been hit-or-miss for much of the week, depending on the anglers’ preference.

The Smith River especially has been jumping to levels too high to drift, but has been in good shape for plunkers before dropping back into shape for drift boats by the next day.

The Chetco River, which generally runs a little bit higher than the Smith, has also had stretches of good drifting conditions this week, though angling has been skewed more heavily towards the plunkers up north.

No fear on the wrestling mat

With the exception of half of a season when he was about nine years old, junior heavyweight Garrett McAlexnder has only been wrestling for a total of four months but that is all the experience he needed to qualify for the CIF state tournament as the NCS runner up in the 285-pound bracket.

It may be attitude or just blissful ignorance but junior 285-pound wrestler Garrett McAlexander hasn’t backed down from anybody during his first year of high school wrestling.

As the sixth seed in the heavyweight bracket of the North Coast Section Wrestling Tournament McAlexander could have snuck up on Nicolas Iverson of Ukiah in the championship round of the bracket. That just isn’t his style.

McAlexander served notice to the top seed and returning NCS placer (fifth in 2015) early on Saturday, when the remaining wrestlers were mulling about during weigh-ins.
