Del Norte drops to 1-2 in Big 5 with 45-43 loss
ARCATA — It was another battle between Arcata and Del Norte on Thursday, with the Tigers eking out an important 45-43 Big 5 Conference win.
After the Warriors tied things up 43-43 with 11 seconds left, the Tigers were fouled and went 1-for-2 from the line. The Warriors could not get a score, and Arcata was fouled one more time and made one more free throw to earn the two-point win.
“The kids played hard but it was frustrating because we could not seem to get a break,” Warriors head coach Scott Alexander said. It was a bunch of little things that did not fall their way such as shots not going in, or not getting a call or two that built up into the loss, he said.

The Warriors had little trouble in their first of only two home dual meets this year, giving several grapplers from the junior varsity program a chance to see mat time.
Including several forfeits, Del Norte, the defending HDNC champions, defeated Hoopa 63-12 and McKinleyville 59-21.
FORTUNA — The Del Norte High girls varsity basketball team had a good outing in a loss to Fortuna, considered one of the elite teams in the Big 5 Conference, Wednesday night.
While the Warriors lost 63-46, head coach Buzz McCulloch said the girls showed marked improvement in all aspects of the game compared to their last contest a week ago against Eureka. In that game they were blown out 50-22 and played lackluster.
“We gave them a run for their money,” McCulloch said. “We played with them. It was a good morale win for us.”

The Warriors won their first Big 5 Conference game of the year and snapped a two-game losing steak by downing the Huskies 69-57 in a contest that, like the Energizer Bunny, kept going and going.
Del Norte lost a four-point halftime lead, scored two points in the third and allowed Fortuna to tie things up at the buzzer at the end of regulation.
In the first and second overtimes, a resilient group of Warriors bent but did not break and broke the game open in the third overtime to come away with the win to go to 1-1 in the Big 5 and 7-5 overall.

The only question that remains is what school mascot will be cheering him on — a Hornet or a Cougar?
During an official recruiting trip to the Division 1-A Brigham Young University Cougars this past weekend, both Cody and his dad Rick Hoffman, who joined him on the recruiting trip, said he was offered a full ride to the school.
On a recruiting trip the other week to the Sacramento State Hornets, a Football Subdivision (formerly Division 1-AA) school, Cody was offered a full scholarship.
Monday afternoon, during a quick break from basketball practice, Hoffman said both schools are still in the running for his services.
