DN rolls over Eureka with big 2nd half

Warrior boys basketball dominates Loggers 67-28 in Eureka Thursday 

The Del Norte boys basketball team built up a bit of a cushion early in its first Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 road game of the season in Eureka, but the Warriors caught fire in the third quarter and ended up blowing the Loggers away 67-28 on Thursday to improve to 10-5 overall and 2-1 in the HDN Big 5.

Del Norte took a 24-15 lead into the locker room at halftime, but just 3:20 into the third quarter that advantage had ballooned to a 38-17 advantage and the Warriors pulled away for a big win.

Warrior Memories: Kunstal got wrestling started right in DN

It may be basketball season according to my four-season schedule, but there is another great program going, and that is wrestling.

One of the things I like about wrestling is that it gives students of all sizes a chance to compete in a good athletic program and be successful. The competitor who weighs 100 pounds can achieve as much success and recognition as the 250-pounder.

Reel Deal: Smith River back on the rise

Plenty of steelhead, but drift boats waiting for prime conditions 

Local fishermen spent most of the week hoping for rain as flows on the Smith and Chetco Rivers dropped below ideal fishing conditions. Early on Friday that all changed as water rushed into both river systems. Now anglers are faced with the opposite dilemma — waiting for the river to go back down.

Smith and Chetco rivers

By Thursday afternoon, both the Smith and Chetco rivers were crystal-clear and had slowed to a trickle. The Smith River bottomed out on Thursday afternoon, measuring 6.76 feet at Jedidiah Smith and 13.35 feet at Dr. Fine Bridge.

The Del Norte wrestling team started the night in a deep hole against Eureka and a few costly mistakes by the Warriors allowed the Loggers to run away with a 54-20 victory in the first Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 dual of the year for either team.

“We have a lot more wrestling to do this year,” Del Norte head coach Aaron Schaad said. “Eureka is the best team in the league right now, and despite the final score, we are not that far off of them. We will correct what we did wrong and we will bounce back.”

Warrior girls stay hot with 38-36 win in Mack

Del Norte holds on late to win first HDN Big 5 league game in two years 

The Del Norte girls basketball team is playing some of its best hoops of the season, picking up its first Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league win since 2012 with a 38-36 victory on the road in McKinleyville on Wednesday.

“It is a really big confidence boost for the girls because now they know we can compete,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “All the other games in the league have been close, so we know we are right with the other teams.”

Hot shooting spurs Warriors to victory

The play started with a mad dash by junior Kyle Cleland, kept alive by another hustle play by junior Joey Godla and ended with senior Steven Maready getting fouled.

The whole sequence took less than five seconds off the clock, but it may well have been the deciding factor in the Del Norte boys basketball team’s 62-61 victory over McKinleyville in Thunen Gym on Tuesday night.

The Warriors took a timeout with 16.7 second left in the game following a turnover by McKinleyville that gave Del Norte possession of the ball at the baseline with a 60-58 lead. Following the timeout, Del Norte stuggled to find an open guard. The pass to Maready was tipped by a defender, but junior Austin Healy was able to get to the ball and call another timeout with 13.3 seconds on the clock.

The Del Norte Rod & Gun Club was once again the place to be for the top trapshooters in the West as the local club hosted its annual Crab Buckle Shoot Friday through Sunday in Smith River. This year’s turnout was one of the best ever, with more than 90 shooters from multiple states and two countries in attendance.

The top shooter in 2015 was Brian Fooks of Fort St. John, B.C., Canada, with an overall score of 474 (out of 500). Although Fooks, who has made the 25-hour drive south with several of his trapshooting brethren from British Columbia for seven years now, has won crab buckles in the past, this was his first time winning the big one.

Wrestlers net six medals in Redding

The Del Norte wrestling team came back from its tournament in Redding with all 11 wrestlers winning at least one match and six Warriors placing in the tournament.

The Warriors’ top finisher was Justin Schrader, who took third place at 132 pounds. Willie Gensaw (120) and Ta Tes Boulby (160) both finished fourth in their respective brackets.

“Ta Tes only lost to one kid in the whole tournament,” said Del Norte head coach Aaron Schaad. “He lost in the quarterfinals in overtime and in the third-place match 1-0. They were really close matches.”

Offensive woes continue as Warriors fall 38-36 to Arcata 

The Del Norte boys basketball team’s offensive stuggles seem to have followed it into the new year.

The Warriors struggled to score all night against a long and rangy Arcata defense on Friday in Thunen Gym. Although Del Norte’s defense kept the Warriors in the game, the Tigers were the team that made their shots down the stretch to escape Crescent City with a 38-36 victory in both team’s Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league opener.
