The annual Battle at the Border wrestling tournament held in Thunen Gym on Saturday was more sparse than usual. Due to snowstorms inland, many teams canceled their trips to Del Norte.

Six schools attended despite the weather, including all five Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 schools. Gold Beach was the only representative from Oregon that made it.

“It was disappointing that a lot of the Rogue Valley schools had to back out due to the snow and weather; they would have added to the tournament,” said Del Norte head coach Aaron Schaad. “But it was also a blessing in disguise because the caliber of kids that we wrestled against was good for a young team.”

Ten Warriors wrestled their first high school match Saturday. Del Norte finished third  overall with 157 points. The junior varsity squad scored 49 points, tying with Fortuna for the top JV team.

In varsity competition, McKinleyville finished first with 186.5 points and Eureka edged out the Warriors for second with 159.


Warrior girls drop Yreka title in overtime

The Del Norte girls basketball team fell just short of a 4-0 start Saturday, falling 52-48 to Brookings-Harbor in the championship game of the Yreka Tournament.

The Warriors came out hot in the final, jumping out to a 16-2 lead by the end of the first quarter. Del Norte held a 12-point advantage heading into the fourth quarter but Brookings came storming back, taking a lead late in the game. 

Del Norte was able to tie the game at the end of regulation, but Brookings pulled ahead in overtime for the victory.

“Their guards are really solid,” Cook said of Brookings. “They put a full-court press on us for the entire game pretty much. At the end, we just didn’t take care of the ball and they finally started hitting their threes.”

Young Del Norte wrestling team has been working hard throughout the preseason 

Del Norte has a lot of new faces in the wrestling room this winter.

The Warriors head into the season with eight wrestlers with high school experence. The other 10 kids have yet to wrestle in high school.

“We are a young team; 80 percent of the team is a freshman or sophomore,” said head coach
Aaron Shaad.

The Warriors have five seniors on the roster, but are missing seniors wrestlers David Plechaty and Jackson Evans, who will miss the season due to injuries.


Del Norte drill team ready for NFL halftime show

Weeks of fundraising have paid off for Del Norte High School’s drill team members, who will perform during halftime of Sunday’s pro football contest between the San Franfransisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks in San Fransisco.

The 30-member team sold candy bars and beef jerky, held car washes and bake sales and even bagged groceries at Shop Smart Food Warehouse to raise the $350 each for the trip, said coach Terri Colton. They left for the Bay Area early Friday.

“This is the biggest game of the year for the 49ers,” Colton said. “The girls will have a great time. It’s an experience of a lifetime for them.”

Oregon skippers pledge their support as crabs wait

Skippers in the Northern California commercial Dungeness crab fleet decided Wednesday morning to continue their strike, feeling that the market is in their favor to demand a higher price than buyers’ initial offer of $2.50 per pound.

“It’s one of the strongest markets we’ve had in a long time,” said Richard Nehmer, owner of the fishing vessel Resolution in Crescent City. “And we know there’s very little volume” based on what has been caught by recreational crabbers, Nehmer said.

Commercial vessels could have started fishing Sunday when the Northern California season opened.

Quick turnaround

It has been a short offseason for the Del Norte High boys basketball team.

Nearly half of the Warriors varsity roster has been tied up after school on the gridiron as the football team made a run to the North Coast Section semifinals.

“It is very difficult because the football team did so well,” head coach Blaine Lopez said before practice Tuesday. “That is great. I am happy for them for sure, but at the same time it was nice to have everybody (at practice) for once on Monday.”

Lopez said he held an optional practice Saturday and nearly everyone showed up. That still leaves the Warriors with just four practices before they head to Yreka for the first tournament of the year today. 

“Obviously, it is going to be a slow start to the season,” Lopez said. “The hard part for the coaches is trying to at least introduce everything we might see, but we probably won’t be very good at anything yet just because we haven’t practiced much.”

Even with less than a week of practice, the players are confident that their basketball skills will return quickly.

“It has been a pretty easy turnaround for us because most of us have all played basketball since we were really young,” said senior David Sathe.

The Warriors will have to make a few adjustments to how the team has operated in the past. Del Norte loses its tallest player and leading scorer from last season, the 6-foot-4 Sean DeArman.
