JV boys basketball hopes to compete for HDN Big 5 crown

Like the DN varsity, Warrior JV expects an undersized but active team 

The Del Norte junior varsity boys basketball team spend New Year’s Eve in Palo Cedro at the three-day Foothill Tournament. The Warriors went 2-1 in the tournament to secure third-place overall.

Del Norte opened the Foothill Tournament with a win over University Preparatory High School from Redding despite some troubles with defensive intensity after the long road trip.

Warrior Memories: Maready Warriors more than just men

Last week as I wrote about three generations of Mareadys representing the Warriors on the male side of the sports agenda. Then I thought about Steven’s older sister Brittany, and I was reminded that there are also three generations representing the female side of Warrior sports as well.

Brittany and Steven’s mother Hollie, whose maiden name was Hollie Short, was an excellent volleyball and basketball player.

2014: The Year of the Warrior

It was a good year to be a Del Norte sports fan in 2014 with multiple Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league titles, several postseason pushes and Warrior alumni making headlines way outside the county.

Before fans move on to 2015, the Triplicate would like to take a look back at the past year to highlight our picks for the top 10 sports stories of 2014 in Del Norte County.

Reel Deal: Anglers get steelhead in their stockings

Fishermen in Del Norte County must have been good this year, because Santa seems to have stocked the Smith and Chetco rivers with steelhead on Christmas. The first reports of steelhead catches on both rivers were reported on Friday. Local guides are expecting the best steelhead fishing so far this year over the weekend.

“Both rivers are still a little bit high, which is good because the forecast says it should be dry now for a little bit,” said fishing guide Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing. “So the conditions will just keep getting better and better the next few days. The rivers are coming into shape for the weekend and there are fish already.”

Del Norte Star

Cody Hoffman has incredible experiences playing football, with many more on the way 

Over the years I have had the opportunity to meet and work with so many young people in this community, both as a teacher and coach and as a broadcaster of football and basketball on KPOD and through “Sports With Chuck” on Charter Cable channel 4. This was rewarding to me because of the many relationships and friendships with these young people. In my later life the energy that they put forth has created a marvelous energy that has impacted my life.

Two individuals who have made their mark in football and basketball at Del Norte High and later at two major colleges come to mind. Buck Pierce and Cody Hoffman made their mark in Del Norte High history. Buck went on to make his mark at New Mexico State University and Cody at Brigham Young University.

Warrior Memories: Steven is the latest Maready Warrior

When I read the great article by Mike Zogg about Steven Maready being selected Humboldt-Del Norte League football MVP this year it brought back great memories regarding the Mareadys.

Steven is the third generation of the Maready family who have been outstanding Warriors on the football field, the basketball court and the baseball diamond.

Gonzalez wins White Star

The Del Norte girls soccer team met for the last time this year on Friday in the high school library to look back on the season and recognize some of its outstanding performers.

Although the Warriors had their share of struggles throughout the season with a 7-12 overall record, the girls’ roster doubled from the first game to the last.

“We started the season with nine players and won our first game,” said Del Norte head coach Clar Byers. “Then we closed the season with 18 girls and won our last game. That was a big game too, because we beat Eureka.”

Warriors top Ferndale 41-35 heading into break

Del Norte girls look to firm up rotation heading into the holidays 

The Del Norte girls basketball team put the finishing touches on 2014 with a 41-35 victory on the road in Ferndale on Tuesday.

The Warriors played pretty evenly with Ferndale throughout the game, but were able to take control of the game late to pick up the win and improve to 5-3 overall heading into a 1½-week break.

“It was an ugly win,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “They had two really big girls that kind of pushed us around like rag dolls. I think they ran out of gas towards the end.”

Warriors continue to show progress

Del Norte coaches have seen significant progress from their young team through 3 tournaments 

The Del Norte wrestling team gained some good experience at the Grants Pass Wrestling Winter Kickoff over the weekend in the team’s first two-day tournament of the season. 

The Warriors only had one tournament champion in Tanner Gensaw who won the 220 junior varsity bracket.

Due to the size of the tournament with about 40 teams in attendance, there were no wrestlebacks for third place so only the top two wrestlers in each bracket were placed. In the junior varsity tournaments only wrestlers who went undefeated in their pool moved on to the next round.

Del Norte still looking for answers offensively

Warriors finish 4th after going 1-2 at Red Bluff Tournament this weekend 

The Del Norte boys basketball team closed the book on 2014 with a fourth-place finish over the weekend at the Red Bluffs Tournament against what head coach Blaine Lopez said was the stiffest competition of the season so far.

The Warriors fell 53-40 on Saturday against Enterprise in the third-place game after falling to eventual tournament champion South Medford 43-27 in the semifinals on Friday. Del Norte beat tournament host Red Bluffs 50-44 in the opening round.
