 A pair of local teenagers got their first taste of official jet ski freeride competition on Aug. 8-9 on the Washington coast at the Grayland Open.

Joe Smith, 13, and Bailee Jones, 18, of Crescent City made the eight-hour drive north to Grayland for their first ocean freeride after both competed in a lake PWC race in Lakeview, Oregon earlier this summer.

Smith entered into the rookie class on a stand up watercraft and was able to perform the required maneuvers on Saturday to advance to the finals on Sunday where he took fourth place overall.

The Crescent City Triathlon has a new overall champion this year.

After multiple second-place finishes Isaac Blundell, a 2013 Del Norte graduate heading into his junior season with the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo triathlon team, finally got over the hump taking first place in a time of 1:02:20.

“I am pretty excited to finally win this, being as close as I have been over the years,” Blundell said after the race. “This is my home race, it is the first triathlon race that I ever did. So it feels nice that I am finally at the point where I can win and do well here.”

The Warriors started practice on schedule, however, with junior varsity head coach Danny Forkner taking over as the interim head coach.
