Over 100 trapshooters, young, old, and everywhere in between,  came from across the Northwest to compete for a coveted Crab Buckle, the signature award given out at the Del Norte Rod & Gun Club’s annual Crab Buckle Shoot.

The 2016 Pacific International Trapshooting Association shoot drew a total of 105 shooters and threw 47,900 registered targets, which Del Norte Rod & Gun  Club president Steve Bigham said is probably a record for the event.

The Crab Buckle shoot is about twice as large as any other shoot that the local club hosts throughout the year and serves as one of its main fundraisers.

Warrior wrestling opens 2016 at Mat Classic in Livermore

Del Norte Triplicate

The 15th annual Mat Classic at Grenada High School in Livermore lasted just one day, but with 42 schools competing in the 32-man bracket it was a good way for the Del Norte wrestling program to kick off 2016.

“In my opinion it went well overall,” said Del Norte head coach Clinton Schaad. “We took this trip for the overall experience. We want to get these big trips out of the way now so when we get to the end of the season it is not a new thing for them. It is everything from driving in a van all day and having to perform afterwards, to stopping in Wilits and having the kids pick out their food for the next day, which is new for some of them. The whole idea was to get matches in and see some of these bigger schools.”

Crabbing at DN Rod & Gun Club

Del Norte Triplicate

Many of the top gunslingers in the West will once again make the trek to Del Norte County for the Rod & Gun Club’s annual Crab Buckle Shoot Friday through Sunday.

“This is a PITA (Pacific International Trapshooting Association) sponsored event,” said Del Norte Rod & Gun Club President Steve Bigham. “We have shooters that come from British Columbia, sometimes Alaska, and then from all over the Western States. This isn’t something that locals, unless they are PITA members, register for because the top shooters on the West Coast will be here. I am talking shooters that have shot 1 million rounds in their careers. Some of these guys can shoot 400 or 500 targets straight.”

HDN basketball league play kicking off

Del Norte Triplicate

The Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 basketball season kicks off tonight in Del Norte as the Warrior girls host Fortuna in Thunen Gym.

The freshmen will kick things off at 4:30 p.m. followed by the junior varsity at about 6 p.m. The varsity game is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m.

The Del Norte girls are undefeated at 10-0 through non-league competition but head coach Jeff Cook has repeatedly said that his team has been totally focused on HDN play. Fortuna went 10-4, Arcata 9-4, Eureka 8-4 and McKinleyville 8-7 in non-league competition, according to Maxpreps.com.

The Del Norte boys will start league play on Friday with a trip to Fortuna. The Warriors went 6-3 overall through the preseason. The league favorite in the HDN — Arcata — went 10-3 overall in non-league games while playing some difficult competition. Fortuna went 3-4, McKinleyville 3-6 and Eureka 0-13 prior to the start of the HDN season.

Warriors win first 10 games of season with sights set on Humboldt-Del Norte league play

The Del Norte girls basketball team is off to its best start in over a decade with a 10-0 record before the break but the only thing on head coach Jeff Cook’s mind is the Warriors’ Jan. 7 matchup with Fortuna to kick off the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 season after the break.

“Like I told the girls, ‘The preseason is just about getting us ready for the league,’” Cook said before the Hidden Valley Tournament. “It is nice that we haven’t lost, but it doesn’t mean anything until league. We’ve got Fortuna first, and that is who we are gaming for right now.”

The Warriors are a young team with a freshman and four sophomores in the lineup, but Del Norte has had no trouble finding the basket early in the year, scoring at least 50 points eight times and over 60 points twice while averaging 54 points a game in the team’s first eight games.
