The Del Norte track and field team went south to Fortuna for the Humboldt-Del Norte Prelims on Friday and qualified 35 kids in 66 different events for the Humboldt-Del Norte Meet of Champions this Friday by finishing in the top eight at the meet. The Warriors also qualified 26 kids in 52 events for the Redwood Empire meet, scheduled for May 24, with a top six finish in the prelims.
“Throughout the years, we have slowly been getting more and more kids eligible for the league championship and for the Redwood Empire,” said Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar. “That goes back to the fact that we have bigger numbers on the team.”
