The Del Norte wrestling team carried its momentum from last weekend’s season opening Battle of the Border Tournament at Del Norte High into Saturday’s McKinleyville Invitational hosted by McKinleyville High School.
The Warrior boys had six grapplers advance to the championship match in their respective weight classes, with Blake Allen, Chaz Harrison and Skyler Moore each winning their second consecutive individual titles. Eddie Hartwick, Kurtis Turner and Tanner Stancliff finished as runners-up, as the Warriors captured the team tournament title for the second weekend in a row.
Not to be outdone, the Warrior girls team had seven wrestlers reach the finals of their respective weight classes, with Jenny Schaad, Danika Scott, Emily Ricks and Savannah Williams each bringing home first place hardware. Adenne Schaad, Arelli Proctor and Bobbie Aflague each earned second place in their brackets as well.
