DN earns pair of pennants

Football and volleyball teams earn scholastic championship team awards

The walls of the Thunen Gymnasium are about to become a little bit more grey.

Del Norte high school recently received word that its athletic teams earned not one, but two North Coast Section Scholastic Championship Team Awards this fall from the California Interscholastic Federation.

Both the football team and volleyball team received the award, which is presented to the top three NCS varsity teams in every sport, in each division. Recipients must also have a composite GPA of 3.0 or above.


DN boys take on Panthers tonight

The Del Norte High boys basketball team heads back out on the road today as it prepares for its second Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league game against McKinleyville.

The Warriors are off to a 7-5 start and have won three straight games, including their league opener against Arcata on Thursday.

McKinleyville has struggled early in the season and has a 4-11 record. The Panthers lost their first league game 75-58 at Eureka.

Cold shooting, turnovers sink Warriors in HDN Big 5 home opener against the Tigers

The Del Norte girls basketball team stumbled out of the gates in their league opener against Arcata. The Warriors couldn’t overcome a cold shooting night against the early-season league favorite, falling 46-31.

Head coach Jeff Cook said his team was feeling a little bit nervous heading into its first home game since the season opener in early December.


Boys open league with win in Arcata

Size seems to mean little to the Del Norte boys basketball team. The Warriors used a mix of stingy defense and timely shooting to surprise Arcata with a 46-35 victory on the road Thursday to open league play.

Arcata (9-9, 0-1 HDN Big 5) featured a starting lineup with four players over 6 feet tall including a 6-foot-7 center. In sharp contrast, the Warriors (7-5, 1-0) starting five had just one player over 6 feet. 

“This group of kids, I don’t think that height intimidates them,” said Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez.


DN wrestlers head to Eureka

Lasting only one day, the Eureka Tournament will not be quite as large as Grants Pass or Anderson. But the Del Norte wrestling team is ready for a big day of wrestling as at least 24 teams travel to Humboldt County today.

“It is about the maximum size that you are going to get for a one-day tournament, assuming everybody shows up and everybody has the weight classes filled,” said Del Norte assistant coach Clinton Schaad. “It should be a good tournament for us. There will be a lot of California teams there.”


Reel Deal: Rain finally brings out some fish

The first significant rainfall since early October should please steelhead anglers eager to wet lines on the Smith River, which had dropped to near summer flows in January with the winter drought.

Not just steelhead but salmon were also caught in the wake of this week’s rains, surprising some anglers who suspected that the chance to land Smith River chinook had ended for this season.

The season is about to truly get started.

Although the Del Norte boys and girls basketball teams have been playing games for over a month, boys coach Blaine Lopez and girls coach Jeff Cook have both had one eye on the approaching league season.
