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.


Reel Deal: Still waiting for steelhead

Local anglers still waiting for annual run, but half-pounders are showing up on Smith, Chetco 

Local fishing has remained lackluster over the past couple weeks as the salmon have moved upstream and anglers continue to await the arrival of the adult steelhead runs.

Fishermen are still having luck catching salmon farther north on the Sixes and Elk rivers, where the later runs are still producing catches.

Warrior Memories: Trehearn provided height for Warriors

As I look at this year’s Warrior boys basketball team, it really reminds me of my days as a Warrior. Team height was something that was always missing. At 6 feet, 2 inches I was regularly one of the tallest Warriors. We never had a player that could dunk a ball.

During the 1948-49 season we finally got a legitimate tall player. Harry Trehearn stood about 6 feet, 6 inches, and all of us had to look up at him. He was a senior that had always been here, but had finally come into his own.

Several Warrior wrestlers still in play

The Del Norte wrestling team saw some of its toughest competition of the year on Friday when the Grants Pass Wrestling Winter Kickoff tournament began. Although the Warriors struggled early on, they came on strong late and seven Warriors remain in the running for the tournament finale today.

“This is the toughest tournament that we have been in all year. There are a lot of the same teams that we saw at the Del Norte Tournament, plus a few teams that we haven’t seen yet,” Del Norte assistant coach Clinton Schaad said. “We came out a little flat in the morning; I’m not sure why, but after that first round the kids kind of woke up and wrestled a lot better.”

Del Norte boys playing for third place

The Del Norte boys basketball team split its first two games at the Red Bluffs Tournament on Thursday and Friday and will face Enterprise today at 4:30 p.m. in the third-place game.

The Warriors topped host Red Bluffs 50-44 on Thursday to kick off the tournament behind the best effort Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez has seen out of his kids in the young season.

Del Norte recognizes seniors, scholarship and successful 2014 season at awards banquet 

Players, coaches and family of the Del Norte football team gathered for one last look back at a fantastic 2014 season that saw the Warriors win a Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league championship with an undefeated conference record and a run to the quarterfinals of the North Coast Section Division IV playoffs at the annual awards banquet on Monday.

One of the highlights of the night was the acknowledgement of senior quarterback and defensive back Steven Maready as the HDN back league MVP. 

“It is quite an honor for us — to the team and to the commitment of the players — to have Steven Maready be the league MVP,” said Del Norte head coach Ray Rook said. “It is a team accomplishment.”

Redwood, Smith River, Crescent Elk all had a team reach the championships at Jaycees Tourney 

The 42nd Annual Jaycees Girls Basketball Tournament had to scramble to fill all five brackets in the week leading up to the event, but once everything got set the two-day tournament went off without a hitch Friday and Saturday.

Del Norte County had even more representatives than originally expected with nine local schools competing in the 40-team tournament. Crescent Elk had three eighth grade teams and a seventh-grade team in attendance. Redwood sent three teams with the eighth-, seventh- and sixth-graders all represented. Smith River also had a team compete, as did Uncharted Shores Academy.

DN wrestlers win team trophy in Mack Tourney

Warriors crown two champions, two more runners-up in McKinleyville 

The Del Norte wrestling team had to tweak its schedule a little this weekend, but came away with a third place finish in McKinleyville on Saturday.

The Warriors were originally scheduled to send some of their top wrestlers to North Bend to compete, while the less experienced wrestlers went south to McKinleyville, but with several wrestlers out with family commitments and injuries, the Warriors decided to take everyone to McKinleyville.

“I thought we wrestled pretty well,” said Del Norte assistant coach Clinton Schaad. “The kids had a good time and wrestled hard. We didn’t have a whole lot of negatives. We think if we had had our whole team there we may have done a little better, but we are pleased.”

Warrior girls basketball grabs two tourney wins

The Del Norte girls basketball team grabbed a pair of wins at the Phoenix tournament to climb back above .500 for the season with a 38-31 victory over Cascade Christin and a 56-39 win over host Phoenix before falling to Eagle Point in the de facto championship game on Saturday.

Del Norte jumped out to a big lead against Cascade Christian before holding off a late charge to get the win.
