Warrior hoops reach boys, girls title games in Yreka

Friday night was kind to Del Norte basketball as both the boys and girls teams topped Brookings-Harbor in the semifinals of the Yreka Tournament to advance to the championship round Saturday.

Both games were close, back-and-forth affairs for the first three quarters, according to boys coach Blaine Lopez and girls coach Jeff Cook. The Warrior girls were able to figure out the tough Bruins’ press in the final quarter and hit 18 of 24 free throws in the final period (29-of-42 for the game) to secure a 62-48 victory.

The Del Norte boys basketball team will be small once again in 2015-16, but head coach Blaine Lopez doesn’t believe that means they cannot be successful.

The Warriors have ridden diminutive squads to second and third play league finishes respectively in each of the last two seasons. The secret to winning with a small squad, according to Lopez, is effort.

“We are not very big, so everybody is going to have to play extremely hard,” he said. “That is the only chance that we have — we are going to have to outwork everybody.”

Girls Basketball: Young guns blazing

The Del Norte girls basketball team is young, but the Warrior underclassmen showed that they know how to play, helping Del Norte beat defending Humboldt-Del Norte Little 5 champion St. Bernard’s 55-50 on Tuesday in Thunen Gym in the Warriors’ first game of the year.

Freshman Kaleya Sanchez came off the bench to lead the Warriors with a game-high 17 points in her first high school game, including eight points in the fourth quarter to help Del Norte hold of St. Bernard’s late.
