Four Del Norte teams headed to Battle in Redding over weekend, two return as champions

Four AAU basketball teams from Del Norte County were in action over the weekend in Redding at the Battle for the North State tournament, and half of them came away from the weekend with championship trophies in hand.

The West Coast Storm, a team of sixth- and seventh-graders from Del Norte with a player from Brookings, improved its overall record to 5-3 this season with a seventh grade championship.

The Storm capped off the tournament with a come-from-behind overtime victory in the championship game. Down by 13 points at halftime to a much larger team called the War Chiefs, made up of players from McKinleyville and Arcata, the Storm pulled things together in the second half.

King of Clubs: Golfing in the dusk of twilight

For as long as I can remember, golf clubs around the country have been organizing inter-club matches during the evening hours of their operations.

People of all playing abilities join these leagues and come together with their friends and family to be social and play the game they all enjoy.

These leagues are convenient for the working person. Starting normally around 4 p.m., players can come out after a long day at the office and enjoy a friendly, low key competition.

The golf course comes alive right before sunset. Birds start settling into their nests, the wind calms and the colors of the landscape seem to deepen.

Golf during the evening hours — there is no better time.

Boys golf takes 3rd in non-league meet

The Del Norte boys golf team took an unscheduled trip to Medford on Wednesday to compete against about 15 teams in the Centennial Tournament.

The Warriors, who are in commanding position to win the Humboldt-Del Norte this year, finished third overall. Del Norte’s top golfer, Kobe Lockwood, finished with the lowest individual score of the day by two strokes with a 72.

Brennan Thornton shot 84 for Del Norte; Cameron Schultz shot 87; Ben Slayton finished with 88, and Taylor Westbrook shot 92 to round out the team score of 423.

Warrior baseball, softball rained out

The Del Norte baseball and softball teams each had their scheduled doubleheaders against Fortuna canceled on Wednesday due to rain in the morning. A rescheduled date for the games was not available on Wednesday.

Both the Warrior teams will be back in action in Fortuna for a single game on Saturday.

Del Norte Youth Wrestling program puts 65 kids on mat at home tournament, win 17 titles

The Del Norte Youth Wrestling program had its largest roster of the season for its home tournament on Saturday, and they turned those extra numbers into extra wins with a season-high 17 champions. The Warriors also captured the outstanding wrestler award in five of the seven age groups.

“Overall we had a good tournament,” said Del Norte Youth Wrestling President Clinton Schaad. “We had quite a few first place finishers. It was a good tournament for everybody. We not only had a good turnout from participants, but we saw people from the community show up and it is always fun to have new faces show up to cheer the kids on.”

The Warriors’ 17 bracket winners were four more than their previous high of 13 at the first tournament of the year in Eureka. Unfortunately, not all of the winners were on the 10-kid roster submitted by the coaches for team scores. Del Norte ended up finishing in second place in team scores by one point.

Lewis bros switch to Greco for more state titles

Thunder, Wyatt each win the second leg in their quest for a California USAW triple crown

One week after wrapping up their lengthy folkstyle wrestling season, brothers Thunder, 8, and Wyatt, 7, of Smith River were back in Fresno competing for another USA Wrestling California State Championship, this time in Greco-Roman style.

While folkstyle wrestling is the style used in high schools and colleges across the U.S., Greco and freestyle wrestling are the more popular styles worldwide and together make up the wrestling portion of the Olympics. Greco wrestling is unique in that all holds must be above the waist. That causes wrestlers to engage each other standing up and results in more throws.

“It is fun. It is a unique way to approach the match,” said Josh Lewis, Thunder and Wyatt’s father, who also coaches the duo. “My boys are both leg attackers, but they are both strong and were able to win using their upper body. It is fun to watch.”

Warrior softball rolls in Oregon

The Del Norte softball team traveled to Oregon for a non-league matchup with Hidden Valley in order to make up for some rained out games earlier in the season.

The Warriors jumped out in front in the first inning and piled on to their lead late in a 14-3 victory to improve to 11-2 overall this season.

Freshman Kaleya Sanchez started off the game with a one-out single followed by sophomore Payten Healy reaching base on an error in the top of the first inning. Both girls came around to score to give Del Norte a 2-0 lead.

Warriors run track at Prefontaine

The Del Norte track and field team took its top athletes to Coos Bay on Saturday to compete in the Prefontaine Rotary Invitational.

“The best thing about this weekend was the great facilities, the great weather and the great competition,” Escobar said.

The Warriors took a total of 21 athletes, with eight boys and 13 girls competing. Escobar said the girls team, especially, was able to take advantage of the conditions with some strong performances.

Green drops tough split decision for Warrior MMA

Warrior Mixed Martial Arts was back in action on Saturday in Trinidad at the Cher-Ae Heights Casino.

Anthony Green was the only Warrior who ended up fighting, dropping a split decision against Zachary Setnick of The Mill in Rio Del.

Warrior MMA coach Ron Otremba said Green suffered a pair of “low blows” to the groin at the start of a couple early rounds, which set him back. One of the blows took him about three minutes to recover from, while he threw up into the spit bucket, but the referees elected not to deduct a point from Setnick.

Warriors tennis falls 5-2 in Eureka

Del Norte grabs pair of singles wins in final regular season meet

The Del Norte boys tennis team played a closely contested meet in Eureka on Tuesday in the team’s final regular season match before the HDN Doubles Championships in Arcata on Saturday. Although the Warriors fell 5-2, head coach Jim Holt was pleased with the level of play that he saw from his young team.

Del Norte’s No. 1 player, Rickesh Khilnani, won the top singles match 6-2, 6-0 in one of his strongest matches of the year.

“Ricky did really well on his serving,” Holt said. “He had a lot of really good first serves that his opponent wasn’t able to control,” Holt said. “We have been working on short ball — hitting in close shots then coming up to the net. He did really well with that, too. It was a really good win for him.”
