Mistakes bring down girls team in close one

The Del Norte girls basketball team had multiple things go wrong in the team’s 52-49 loss to Eagle Point on Tuesday, which dropped the team to 5-3 overall this season. 

Eagle Point got lucky on five ugly three-point attempts that banked in off the glass, but the rest of the Warriors’ troubles were largely self-inflicted.

The Del Norte football season looked back on its 2013 football season on Wednesday night at the team’s annual awards banquet.

The Warriors finished the season at 6-7 overall, but by the end of the season, it was clear they were better than a .500 football team.  

The year finally ended in the North Coast Section Division 4 semifinals in Fortuna with a heartbreaking 21-20 loss to the Warriors’ conference rival.

“I knew going in it was going to be a hard fought year due to our schedule and some of the changes we were embarking on,” said head coach Ray Rook in his remarks. “With that said we continued to improve each week, and then peaked at the best time.

Del Norte boys take third at Yreka Basketball Tournament

The Del Norte boys team won its final two games at the Yreka Tournament over the weekend, including a 52-29 victory over host Yreka in the consolation championship, to take third place.

“For the first weekend, especially with not much practice time, I thought we played okay,” said head coach Blaine Lopez. “Our execution wasn’t great, but that will hopefully get a lot better as we get going. I thought for the most part we did a good job effort wise, and that is all I asked of them. We didn’t always know what was going on, but I thought the kids played hard ... We did all the things that we need to do to try to be successful.”

The annual Battle at the Border wrestling tournament held in Thunen Gym on Saturday was more sparse than usual. Due to snowstorms inland, many teams canceled their trips to Del Norte.

Six schools attended despite the weather, including all five Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 schools. Gold Beach was the only representative from Oregon that made it.

“It was disappointing that a lot of the Rogue Valley schools had to back out due to the snow and weather; they would have added to the tournament,” said Del Norte head coach Aaron Schaad. “But it was also a blessing in disguise because the caliber of kids that we wrestled against was good for a young team.”

Ten Warriors wrestled their first high school match Saturday. Del Norte finished third  overall with 157 points. The junior varsity squad scored 49 points, tying with Fortuna for the top JV team.

In varsity competition, McKinleyville finished first with 186.5 points and Eureka edged out the Warriors for second with 159.
