Reel Deal: Slow week of fishing

Although most of the out-of-town anglers that clogged up the Chetco and Smith Rivers last week have moved on to other rivers, fishing has still been slow on both the Chetco and Smith rivers over the past week as persistent dry conditions have made it tough to hook many steelhead.

Chetco River

Although both the Chetco and Smith rivers are running low this week, the Chetco River has been in a little bit better shape than its Del Norte counterpart.

Del Norte boys hoops falls off of first-place pace

Warriors drop to second place with 61-45 road loss in Arcata Friday night 

The Del Norte boys basketball team struggled at the beginning and end of the game in Arcata on Friday and left with a 61-45 loss in a matchup of the top two teams in the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 at the halfway point of league play.

The Warriors struggled coming out of the gates as they made just one field goal in the first quarter en route to a 16-6 deficit.

Rough 2nd half sinks Del Norte girls basketball in Arcata

Warriors fall 48-41 to the Tigers on the road to open 2nd half of HDN play 

The Del Norte girls basketball team got off to a strong start in Arcata, but the home team took over in the second half and the Warriors fell 48-41 on the road to kick of the second half off the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 season.

The Warriors fought to a 10-9 lead by the end of the first quarter and held a 26-23 advantage at halftime, but the Tigers turned the tabled on Del Norte in the second half.

“We played really well in the first two quarters, but in the second half we kind of fell apart a little bit,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “We kept the game close, but we couldn’t get in any rhythm.”

Warrior Memories: Lorenzi has been great addition to DN family

In 1980, the year that I came back to Del Norte High School as a coach, the Warriors also hired another teacher and coach — Pablo Lorenzi.

Pablo, who was a recent graduate of California Lutheran College, became a Warrior. Now 35 years later, he is still coaching at the high school even though he is retired. Pablo and his wife, Debbie, are still putting championship girls volleyball teams on the court for fans to cheer for.

Blackburn sounds off on his relationship with Buck, shares a firsthand account of the QB’s career

After 33 years of teaching and coaching and 28 years of broadcasting football and basketball, I feel blessed in getting to know hundreds of student athletes — boys and girls. These experiences have stayed with me over these many years and I treasure the memories. My relationships with many of these outstanding young people have continued in my later years.

One such relationship that has continued is with Buck Pierce and his parents Tim and Connie Pierce, who still live in Crescent City.

Warriors pin Huskies in HDN dual

The Del Norte wrestling team was forced to leave four weight classes open on Wednesday in Fortuna, but the Warriors did almost everything else perfectly in a dominating 51-30 victory over the Huskies.

Due to some illness, injuries and just having a small team this year, Del Norte was forced to forfeit matches at 106, 128, 182 and 195 pounds. The Warriors got half of those points back when Roberto Aguilar and Andru Botelho both won by forfeit at 220 pounds and heavyweight.

Strong showing for small squad

Warriors wrestle way to seventh place, despite leaving several top wrestlers home with sickness 

The Del Norte wrestling team is used to entering competition shorthanded this season, but Saturday’s trip south to the Eureka Tournament was the smallest Warrior squad yet this season as the team battled sickness and injuries.

Still, Del Norte was able to place three of the six varsity wrestlers that finished the tournament and ended up seventh overall out of 24 teams in attendance.

“There were quite a few schools there and it was good competition,” said Del Norte head coach Aaron Schaad. “The kids enjoyed themselves and I was happy with the way the kids performed. We beat a few kids that we shouldn’t have beat, and the matches that we lost were close matches. I think we won some matches on conditioning too, so that means our lungs are getting better.”

After the Del Norte girls basketball team closed out a 48-40 victory over the Huskies in Thunen Gym on Friday, the Warriors found themselves in a new position — .500 at 2-2 through the first half of league play.

The Warriors girls program has struggled in Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league play in recent memory, but this year’s team finds itself alone in third place halfway through league play.

“It has been a long time since the Del Norte girls have been 2-2 in league play,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “It means a lot to us. These are my first two wins in the league (as a coach) and (junior) Regin (Loftin) has been a starter for three years and this is her third league win.”

DN storms past Fortuna in 2nd half

Warrior boys stay tied for 1st in HDN Big 5 hoops race with huge 2nd half in Fortuna 

The anticipated hard-fought battle between two of the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 teams in a three-way for first place lived up to the billing in the first half, but the Del Norte boys basketball team ran roughshod over the Huskies in the second half in Fortuna and pulled away for an emphatic 65-42 victory on Thursday.

“We just played really well in the second half,” said Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez. “We didn’t turn the ball over; we played excellent on the defensive end; we didn’t give up second shots, and we made shots. It was a whole-team effort.”

Warrior Memories: DN couldn’t ask for a better assistant coach than Brous

As a former coach, I know how valuable good assistants coaches are.

When I attend Warrior varsity basketball games it is a pleasure to see another former Del Norte High standout athlete working with Blaine Lopez as his assistant. Dave Brous, a 1970 Warrior graduate, was a three-sport athlete while at Del Norte. He was the quarterback for the football team, point guard for basketball and an outstanding outfielder in baseball.
