The Del Norte girls basketball team’s late season offensive struggles continued on Wednesday against Eureka, especially early in the game as the Loggers raced out to a commanding lead. The Warriors fought their way back into the game with tough defense in the second half but their comeback bid fell short as Eureka won 45-38 in Thunen Gym.

“For the last three games we just haven’t been able to put the ball in the bucket, and that is pretty much what it came down to today,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “The first half really killed us.”

DN wrestlers win in McKinleyville, qualify for NCS Duals

The Del Norte wrestling team took care of business in a pair of duals against smaller teams on Wednesday in McKinleyville, picking up a pair of team dual victories and qualifying for the North Coast Section Duals on Saturday.

Warrior boys basketball beats Eureka, await Nicali Fate

The Del Norte boys basketball team did all that it could on Tuesday with a 42-30 victory in Eureka. All that is left now for the Warriors is to wait and see how the rest of the Humbolt-Del Norte Big 5 shakes out.

The Warriors rolled to a 32-point win over the Loggers in Del Norte earlier in the year and looked poised to run away with another win early in Eureka.

Junior Dayton Skeen hit a three-pointer just seconds into the game and Del Norte went ahead 5-0 on its next possession following offensive rebounds by Skeen, Joey Godla and Austin Healy before Noah Thomas hit the jumper. With 2:14 left in the first quarter Thomas hit a pair of free throws to push the Warriors’ lead to 10-2 before Eureka responded.

DN wrestlers take 5th place in Ukiah

The Del Norte wrestling team traveled south to Ukiah for one of its more difficult tournaments of the season. The Warriors were able to overcome some early adversity for a fifth place team finish to go along with six placers on Saturday.

“It was a difficult meet, but it always is,” said Del Norte assistant coach Nick Watson. “They have tough schools from Nevada and Sutter, which is one of the top schools in the Northern Section. We finished better than I thought we would, honestly.”

The Del Norte boys junior varsity basketball team had its home game against McKinleyville circled ever since a disappointing loss to the Panthers in mid-January. On Thursday the Warriors finally had another shot at McKinleyville, and Del Norte came out on top 53-47.

“The (first) McKinleyville game was our worst game of the year, but we came back and played great basketball the second time around,” said JV head coach Kevin Baxter. “This team has shown that they have a lot of grit. They are tough, and they are a lot more mentally strong than they were at the beginning of the season.”

Rain late last week blew out the Smith and Chetco rivers but over the weekend the plunkers were back at it and drift boats started joining the fray by Monday, kicking off the hottest week of steelhead fishing yet this year.

Meanwhile, ocean anglers had a brief respite from rough seas midway through the week and were able to nab nice crab, lingcod and rockfish before the surf picked back up.

Warrior Memories: Bunky a fun Warrior, Merchant teammate

Basketball season is winding down and spring sports are starting up. When we look to spring we find there are lots of activities starting: track for boys and girls, baseball for boys, softball for girls, golf and tennis for boys.

 Back in my Warrior days there was baseball and track for boys and boys could compete in both. Baseball was played at Peterson Park as there was no field on campus.
