Wrestling dual date changed

The wrestling dual between Del Norte and Arcata has been moved to tomorrow beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Thunen Gymnasium.
The dual, originally on Del Norte's schedule for today, was changed due to a scheduling miscommunication between the two schools. It will be the Warriors first dual of the season, and their first time wrestling in front of their home crowd in 2014.

Hustle trumps Eureka's height

Del Norte not intimidated, topples taller Loggers 53-33

Read more...The boys basketball matchup between Del Norte and Eureka was reminiscent of David versus Goliath.

The Loggers came into Thunen Gymnasium on Thursday with a lineup that dwarfed the Warriors. Del Norte is used to being the shorter team, but Eureka was 5-8 inches taller at nearly every position.


Wrestling heads to Eagle Point Tourney

The Del Norte wrestling team is headed to Eagle Point today for what the team expects to be a tough test.

“Phoenix won the Eureka Tournament handily and they are going to be at Eagle Point. Eagle Point has beaten Phoenix already this year,” Del Norte head coach Aaron Schaad said.  Grants Pass is going to be there too and they won the Anderson Tournament. There are three teams right there that are pretty darn dominant.”

The Del Norte Rod and Gun Club had 102 people sign up for the 2014 Crab Buckle Tournament held Jan. 10-12. Trapshooters from as far away as Fort St. John, Canada, came to Del Norte with over 40,000 clay birds shot over the three-day tournament.

“On a regular shoot we have around 50 shooters coming in,” said Del Norte Rod and Gun Club president Grant “Bud” Hoffman. “This was a big shoot for us this year. Normally, we have about 18-20 squads, which is about 85-95 shooters. This year we had over 100.”

Although many of the competitors were from other gun clubs, this year’s High Overall Score crab buckle went to Del Norte’s own Mac Robertson.

DN boys stumble against Panthers

The Del Norte High boys basketball team lacked the usual hustle that has become this team’s trademark on Tuesday in McKinleyville and it was costly in a 42-32 loss.
