Del Norte’s youth wrestlers capped off a perfect season this weekend at the Redwood Empire Wrestling Association Championships in Eureka, bringing home the team championship for the third straight year.

“It was a very successful weekend,” head coach Clinton Schaad said Monday. “We were able to win every team title this year.” 

With three athletes, 8-year-old Colton Schaad (bantam), 10-year-old Eddie Hartwick (intermediate) and high school wrestler Colson Turner (junior division) named the Outstanding Wrestler for their respective divisions and a pile of indiviual champions to boot, Schaad had plenty to be pumped up about.

With three games on Sunday, the Lady Warriors had their work cut out for them, and coach Preston Rafalowski says he and co-coach Justin Clifton couldn’t be prouder of their young players.

Youth wrestlers gear up to grapple at championships

Del Norte Youth Wrestling heads to the Redwood Empire Wrestling Association Championships today in Eureka. Submitted
The Del Norte Youth Wrestling program has a lot of momentum as it prepares for the Redwood Empire Wrestling Association (REWA) Championships at Eureka High School Saturday.

The REWA Championships includes teams from Del Norte, Arcata, McKinleyville, Ferndale, Hoopa, and two teams from Eureka.

Each of the seven teams hosts a tournament each year, and the Warriors have proven to be the class of REWA so far this year. Del Norte has already been to six tournaments this year. Half of those tournaments — Del Norte, Arcata and Eureka (Loggers) — have kept track of team scores and the Warriors have come out on top in all three.


Warrior Memories: First soccer champions took field in 1995

When you look at the Warrior sports program, the last sport added to the boys’ schedule is soccer. This might seem a little strange since soccer is the most popular sport in the world. The first Warrior soccer team took the field when the 1981-82 school year started. Competing locally with football for players, it took the program several years to really become competitive. 

When the 1994 season rolled around, you could tell good things were coming. The team, coached by Dan Gonzalez and assisted by George Hartman, posted a successful 10-win, five-loss, one-tie record. This team had most of their players returning, and Coach Gonzalez really looked forward to an amazing 1995 season. He was right: Coach Gonzalez said the 1995 season was a dream

Slow fishing in the area has anglers waiting for opening of the ocean salmon season on May 1

Fishing on the Wild Rivers Coast has slowed to a crawl over the last week. With the steelhead largely moving on from the Smith River and choppy ocean conditions keeping sport anglers out of Brookings Harbor, the only thing left for local anglers to do has been to prepare for the ocean salmon season, which kicks off next week.

Brookings Harbor

While lingcod and rockfishing have been strong out of Brookings all spring, but strong winds and choppy seas have kept most sport fishing vessels at the docks early this week. Swells predicted to reach 10 or 11 feet on Friday will likely keep anglers off the ocean through the weekend.

DN baseball shows leadership during split in Arcata

Warriors win 4-1, fall 6-2 in doubleheader with Tigers on Friday 

The Del Norte baseball team turned things around dramatically last week.

After falling 15-1 at home to Arcata on Wednesday, the Warriors made the trip south to take on the Tigers again in a doubleheader on Friday. Head coach Travis Johnson blamed a lack of effort and desire for the rout on Wednesday, but on Friday he saw a whole different team during Del Norte’s 4-1 win and 6 -2 loss to split the doubleheader.

Del Norte track fares well at Prefontaine

Bell finishes first in two events; 4x100 relay teams both take second 

The 15th Prefontaine Rotary Invitational is the biggest and most competitive track meet that the Del Norte track and field team will compete at during the regular season and the Warriors pulled through with some impressive performances to finish among the leaders at the 30-team meet.

The Warriors took 24 of their top athletes to Coos Bay, and head coach Samuel Escobar said the trip was well worth it.

DN boxer draws in first fight in Trinidad

It was a rude introduction to the sport of boxing for local fighter Sam Nunes, who trains with Warrior MMA.

In Nunes’ first official boxing match he caught a hard punch in the first round and was knocked down. Nunes was able to rebound from the tough start to earn a draw.

“I think (Hullance’s) plan was to come out and knock him out,” said Warrior MMA coach Ron Otremba. “It being Nunes’ first fight, he just kind of stood there and got hit. After that he realized he was in a fight. He pretty much controlled the fight after that.”
