Crab Buckle Shoot set for this weekend

Some of the top trapshooters in the West will be on hand at the Del Norte Rod & Gun Club over the weekend for the annual Crab Buckle Shoot on Friday and Saturday.

Last year the Crab Buckle Shoot drew 102 participants from across the western United States and even a few from Canada, said Del Norte Rod & Gun Club vice president Steve Bigham.

Slow start to steelhead season on Smith

Some adult steelhead have entered river system, but bites are still inconsistent on local rivers

The first reports of adult steelhead being caught on the Smith and Chetco rivers are now a week old, but cold temperatures on the river, coupled with an unusually warm ocean temperature for this time of year, have made for a slow start to the steelhead season for local anglers.

Smith River

The Smith River seems to be rounding into shape to make for ideal drift boat conditions. The Smith has been dropping gradually since the end of a large storm system late last week. The river was at about 8 feet at Jedidiah Smith State Park and at 14½ feet at Dr. Fine Bridge Friday.

“To me, that is a really good level for the steelhead,” said fishing guide Mick Thomas of  Lunker Fish Trips. “It makes them hold in the water that you would expect to catch them in.”


JV boys basketball hopes to compete for HDN Big 5 crown

Like the DN varsity, Warrior JV expects an undersized but active team 

The Del Norte junior varsity boys basketball team spend New Year’s Eve in Palo Cedro at the three-day Foothill Tournament. The Warriors went 2-1 in the tournament to secure third-place overall.

Del Norte opened the Foothill Tournament with a win over University Preparatory High School from Redding despite some troubles with defensive intensity after the long road trip.

Warrior Memories: Maready Warriors more than just men

Last week as I wrote about three generations of Mareadys representing the Warriors on the male side of the sports agenda. Then I thought about Steven’s older sister Brittany, and I was reminded that there are also three generations representing the female side of Warrior sports as well.

Brittany and Steven’s mother Hollie, whose maiden name was Hollie Short, was an excellent volleyball and basketball player.

2014: The Year of the Warrior

Del Norte’s athletic programs were on the rise in 2014 with league titles and individual accolades 

It was a good year to be a Del Norte sports fan in 2014 with multiple Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league titles, several postseason pushes and Warrior alumni making headlines way outside the county.

Before fans move on to 2015, the Triplicate would like to take a look back at the past year to highlight our picks for the top 10 sports stories of 2014 in Del Norte County.

Reel Deal: Anglers get steelhead in their stockings

Fishermen in Del Norte County must have been good this year, because Santa seems to have stocked the Smith and Chetco rivers with steelhead on Christmas. The first reports of steelhead catches on both rivers were reported on Friday. Local guides are expecting the best steelhead fishing so far this year over the weekend.

“Both rivers are still a little bit high, which is good because the forecast says it should be dry now for a little bit,” said fishing guide Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing. “So the conditions will just keep getting better and better the next few days. The rivers are coming into shape for the weekend and there are fish already.”

Del Norte Star

Cody Hoffman has incredible experiences playing football, with many more on the way 

Over the years I have had the opportunity to meet and work with so many young people in this community, both as a teacher and coach and as a broadcaster of football and basketball on KPOD and through “Sports With Chuck” on Charter Cable channel 4. This was rewarding to me because of the many relationships and friendships with these young people. In my later life the energy that they put forth has created a marvelous energy that has impacted my life.

Two individuals who have made their mark in football and basketball at Del Norte High and later at two major colleges come to mind. Buck Pierce and Cody Hoffman made their mark in Del Norte High history. Buck went on to make his mark at New Mexico State University and Cody at Brigham Young University.

Warrior Memories: Steven is the latest Maready Warrior

When I read the great article by Mike Zogg about Steven Maready being selected Humboldt-Del Norte League football MVP this year it brought back great memories regarding the Mareadys.

Steven is the third generation of the Maready family who have been outstanding Warriors on the football field, the basketball court and the baseball diamond.

The Del Norte girls soccer team met for the last time this year on Friday in the high school library to look back on the season and recognize some of its outstanding performers.

Although the Warriors had their share of struggles throughout the season with a 7-12 overall record, the girls’ roster doubled from the first game to the last.

“We started the season with nine players and won our first game,” said Del Norte head coach Clar Byers. “Then we closed the season with 18 girls and won our last game. That was a big game too, because we beat Eureka.”
