The homecoming crowd seems to have shaken the Del Norte boys basketball team out of its slump.

The Warriors, who had lost two straight games on the road heading into Friday night's matchup, bounced back with an emphatic 53-35 victory over Eureka in Thunen Gym.

"I thought the kids played extremely hard," said Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez. "We didn't play great; we didn't shoot the ball very well, but I thought we played really hard. The effort was there, and we have kind of lacked that a little bit lately. So I was proud of them for getting back to that."

The Warriors were all over the place defensively, getting hands in passing lanes for steals and hitting the glass hard for both offensive and defensive rebounds.

After an impressive 51-40 victory over McKinleyville in Thunen Gym on Tuesday, the Del Norte girls basketball team is sitting at 3-3 and in third place in the Humboldt-Del Norte standings. That is the best start after six league games that the Warrior girls have had in a decade.

Against McKinleyville, the Warriors fell into a quick 5-0 hole as the Panthers came out firing. Del Norte answered with a little run of its own, but trailed by one or two possessions for the entire first half and trailed 22-17 at halftime.

Del Norte boys drop second straight league contest with 63-53 loss on the road 

The second half of the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 League regular season has been unkind to the Del Norte boys basketball team so far, as the Warriors dropped their second straight game on the road with a 63-53 loss to McKinleyville on Wednesday.

After starting the week tied with Arcata for first place, the Warriors lost two games to the top two teams in the standings and fell to third place at 3-3 overall.

Del Norte falls 47-34 in Fortuna in HDN dual

The Del Norte wrestling team had a few more grapplers available in Fortuna than in recent duals, but it still wasn’t quite enough to overcome Fortuna on the road on Wednesday at the Huskies grabbed a 47-32 victory over the Warriors.

“It came right down to the last match of the night,” said Del Norte assistant coach Nick Watson. “We went out and wrestled tough. There were a lot of close matches. They just caught us at a couple weight classes and the cards didn’t fall our way.”

Tsunami All-Starz beat out much bigger gyms in route to youth level two national championship 

When the awards show started at the American Masterpiece cheerleading competition in San Jose on Jan. 25, the Tsunami All-Starz youth 2 team had no idea what to expect.

The youth 2 team, comprised of Del Norters between 6 and 12 years old, finished the first day of competition in third place, according to the judges, and the coaches and cheerleaders on the team were all hoping for second place at best when the final results were read.

“They called the top three teams up to the stage, and I thought, ‘Okay we got third place. That is good enough,’” recounted All-Starz cheerleader Jaclyn Young. “Then they called the third place team, and I thought, ‘We got second.’ But then they called second, and we all started jumping up and down and crying. It was really fun.”

Del Norte grapplers fight sickness, injury in Ore.

It was probably one of the worst weekends of the year for the Del Norte wrestling team to compete in a dual tournament when the Warriors traveled to Central Point, Ore., for the Crater Classic Duals on Saturday.

Although the Warriors have been light on numbers over the course of the season, on Saturday Del Norte had to go without several grapplers that caught the flu bug last week and several more that are sitting out with various injuries. That left a season-low eight wrestlers to fill the 14 weight classes for Del Norte, and by the end of the tournament that number was down to seven.

Reel Deal: Slow week of fishing

Although most of the out-of-town anglers that clogged up the Chetco and Smith Rivers last week have moved on to other rivers, fishing has still been slow on both the Chetco and Smith rivers over the past week as persistent dry conditions have made it tough to hook many steelhead.

Although both the Chetco and Smith rivers are running low this week, the Chetco River has been in a little bit better shape than its Del Norte counterpart.

Warriors drop to second place with 61-45 road loss in Arcata Friday night 

The Del Norte boys basketball team struggled at the beginning and end of the game in Arcata on Friday and left with a 61-45 loss in a matchup of the top two teams in the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 at the halfway point of league play.

The Warriors struggled coming out of the gates as they made just one field goal in the first quarter en route to a 16-6 deficit.

Rough 2nd half sinks Del Norte girls basketball in Arcata

Warriors fall 48-41 to the Tigers on the road to open 2nd half of HDN play 

The Del Norte girls basketball team got off to a strong start in Arcata, but the home team took over in the second half and the Warriors fell 48-41 on the road to kick of the second half off the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 season.

The Warriors fought to a 10-9 lead by the end of the first quarter and held a 26-23 advantage at halftime, but the Tigers turned the tabled on Del Norte in the second half.

“We played really well in the first two quarters, but in the second half we kind of fell apart a little bit,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “We kept the game close, but we couldn’t get in any rhythm.”

Warrior Memories: Lorenzi has been great addition to DN family

In 1980, the year that I came back to Del Norte High School as a coach, the Warriors also hired another teacher and coach — Pablo Lorenzi.

Pablo, who was a recent graduate of California Lutheran College, became a Warrior. Now 35 years later, he is still coaching at the high school even though he is retired. Pablo and his wife, Debbie, are still putting championship girls volleyball teams on the court for fans to cheer for.
