By Ray Hamill — The Del Norte Warriors will be back to full strength this week and ready to go when they travel to West Valley on Friday night.

The Warriors were forced to cancel last weekend’s game against North Medford because of COVID protocols, but all of their players have been cleared to play again.

“The biggest thing this week is getting everybody back on track,” head coach Nick White said.

Coincidently, West Valley also had to cancel its game this past weekend because of COVID concerns.

Both teams are also 0-1 after dropping their openers two weeks ago, and both will be looking to get back to winning ways.

“They’re a local power over there,” White said of the Cottonwood school. “They’re always well coached, it’s a good program, and they’re physical like us. So it’ll be a good test.”

The game, which will be broadcast live on KPOD 97.9 FM, kicks off at 7:30 p.m., with the unbeaten Del Norte JVs playing at 5 p.m.
