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. 

Reel Deal: Rivers round into shape for Christmas

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.

No rest for the wrestlers

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.”

Del Norte girls hoops dominate in Bandon

The Del Norte girls basketball team ran roughshod over the competition at the Bandon Tournament on Friday and Saturday, picking up a pair of wins, including one exhibition game, to improve to 8-0 this season.

The Warriors faced the Sutherlin junior varsity team in an exhibition game on Friday. Although the Sutherlin program is one of the tops in the state of Oregon, the Warriors beat the Sutherlin varsity  in Phoenix, Oregon, in the previous tournament and rolled to a 53-10 win over the younger squad.

Warrior boys basketball falls 47-44 to host Bandon

The Del Norte boys basketball team picked up an exhibition win on Friday against Sutherlin’s junior varsity team before falling 47-44 Saturday in a close championship game against the host school at the Bandon Tournament over the weekend.

The Warriors opened up play with a relatively easy 20-plus point win over Sutherlin’s JV team. Del Norte beat the Sutherlin varsity 36-26 the previous weekend at the Phoenix Tournament.

St. B’s makes history with CIF state title

The St. Bernard’s football team made history on Saturday as the first North Coast Section representative to win a California Interscholastic Federation state championship with a 28-21 victory over  Saddleback Valley Christian at Laguna Hills High School in a rain-drenched CIF Division V-A championship game.

The Del Norte Recreation Department’s indoor women’s soccer league is through its first four weeks of competition after another round of games this Sunday at the Del Norte Recreation Gym. Perennial power Gordi Bras is once again atop the standings at an undefeated 4-0, but Los Compadres and Warriors are both close behind at 3-1.

Warriors place 4 at Grants Pass Winter Kickoff

The Del Norte wrestling team got a dose of its toughest competition of the season on Friday and Saturday at the 2015 Grants Pass Winter Kick Off. The Warriors answered the challenge with seven wrestlers competing in varsity brackets and four placing in the top six. Del Norte finished 12th as a team out of the 38 schools in attendance.

“It is a really good tournament and the kids wrestled really well,” said Del Norte head coach Clinton Schaad. “Last year we didn’t have any placers and this year we had four. All of them (except for Garrett McAlexander) are the same kids as last year. We had seven kids in the varsity tournament, but only six scoring wrestlers because we had two heavyweights. Finishing 12th with less than half of the team scoring is really good.”

Warrior Memories: DN girls hoops on a roll again

It is really great to see our 2015 girls basketball getting off to such a great start.

When I see our girls perform at the level they do, it is fun to see how things have changed over the years. We tend to think of the history of Warrior basketball being a boys sport.

This is not necessarily true. 

4 White Stars for Warrior football

The Del Norte football team was shorthanded this year with lower-than-average numbers. That meant that the team’s top players had to stay on the field for most of the game.

The Warriors were awarded four White Stars in football this season and all four players impacted multiple phases of the game.

“You give out these awards, but gosh dang it we played as a team,” said Del Norte head coach Lewis Nova. “All coaches say that, but we had a lot of players going both ways. These guys were all a force on both sides of the ball, and some of them even on special teams.”
