Scoring woes stymie boys

The Del Norte boys varsity basketball team lost to the Hidden Valley Mustangs 18-25 in the championship game of the Hidden Valley Basketball Tournament in Grants Pass on Tuesday.

“We had a hard time scoring. In all the years I’ve watched, coached or played, I’ve never seen anything like it,” Del Norte Coach Blaine Lopez said. “We couldn’t throw it in the ocean.”

Both teams struggled to score — the Warriors just struggled more.

Warrior Memories: NCS hero back as JV girls hoops head coach

When I attended the girls basketball team’s opening game against St. Bernard’s, it was really great to see a former Warrior standout coaching the girls junior varsity team.

Justin Clifton is a 2002 graduate of Del Norte who was an outstanding tight end on the football team and a very important part of the 2002 Warrior basketball team that won the Northcoast Section Championship. It is always a pleasure to see former Warriors of outstanding character like Justin come back to help our youth.

Streams throughout the Wild Rivers Coast have been blown out nearly all week as winter storms continue to dump on Northern California and Oregon. Flows have remained above 10,000 cubic feet per second all week as of Thursday but with dry weather in the forecast, anglers should be making their return to the river soon.

School is out for the holidays but the Del Norte wrestling team has continued to show up every day.

The Warriors are in the midst of a three week break between tournaments after wrapping up the Grants Pass Winter Kickoff over the weekend but that doesn’t mean the grapplers are taking it easy this holiday season. Instead the Warriors hit the mats Monday through Wednesday, and they will be back at it four days next week before New Year’s Day.

“They will get the holidays off and the day before for Christmas too,” said Del Norte head coach Clinton Schaad. “It is hard, but it shows me that they want to be here when they are not in school and they still come to practice.”
