The Del Norte wrestling team fell short of its ambitious goal of winning a team title at the Humboldt Del Norte Championships on Saturday, but with five individual champions and four runners up, the Warriors didn’t feel like they came up short.

“We had a great day. We fell short of Eureka, but we have been chasing them all year,” said Del Norte head coach Clinton Schaad. “Of course we had some matches that we want back, but we ended up closing the gap a little bit in the final round. We lost the team title in the consolation matches. Eureka had kids come through and finish third and fourth. Our kids wrestled well, but we just couldn’t quite get over that hump. We had more finalists than anybody out here though.”

Girls basketball grabs 8 seed, 1st round at home

After spending the entire Dick Nicali Tournament on the road as the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5’s third seed, the Del Norte girls basketball team will get a chance to play some postseason basketball at home on Wednesday in the first round of the North Coast Section division IV tournament.

“We are glad that we get a home game so we don’t have to travel in the first round,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “We were expecting to travel just because that is usually how it happens around here. The girls are happy.”

The Warriors grabbed the No. 8 seed in the tournament with a 16-6 overall record, including the team’s recent run to the Nicali title game where they took second place. Del Norte will take on No. 9 seeded Kelseyville Wednesday with a 7 p.m. tipoff.

The Del Norte girls basketball team never trailed in the first round of the Dick Nicali Tournament in Eureka on Tuesday, but the Warriors lead was never more than nine points. 

The Loggers never let Del Norte get comfortable, making repeated runs at the Warriors’ lead, but Del Norte was able to hold off the charge down the stretch to earn a 40-37 victory and secure a return trip to Eureka on Thursday for a semifinal game against Humboldt-Del Norte Little 4 champion St. Bernard’s.

“It is awesome,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “Last year was our first year making it (to the Nicali Tournament) and we were out in the first round. This year is our second year and we are on to the second round. It was a big goal of ours just to get here this year.” 

Warrior wrestlers welcome HDN for finals

Once every five years the Humboldt-Del Norte wrestling championships come to Crescent City, and the Del Norte wrestling team is excited to host the event this year.

The HDN championships will decide the 2016 White Star winners, the overall team champion and also serve as the qualifying tournament for the North Coast Section meet next weekend.

“Our season isn’t over this week, but this is the last week before our HDN championships and our last week as a full team,” said Del Norte head coach Clinton Schaad. “I don’t know how many kids we will have going to the NCS tournament. I would like to take all 14, but we will figure that all out on Monday.”

Sometimes you are hot, and sometimes you’re not.

That was the case for the Del Norte boys basketball team  this postseason. The Warriors lost 49-32 to Fortuna in the first round of the Dick Nicali Tournament on Monday after coming out flat and struggling to hit shots all game long. The Warriors were on fire just two days earlier, however, when they came up with a big 76-62 victory in McKinleyville to break the tie for third place and secure a spot in the tournament.

Del Norte sits at 13-8 overall this season as the year comes to a close.
