Warriors place 4 at Grants Pass Winter Kickoff

The Del Norte wrestling team got a dose of its toughest competition of the season on Friday and Saturday at the 2015 Grants Pass Winter Kick Off. The Warriors answered the challenge with seven wrestlers competing in varsity brackets and four placing in the top six. Del Norte finished 12th as a team out of the 38 schools in attendance.

“It is a really good tournament and the kids wrestled really well,” said Del Norte head coach Clinton Schaad. “Last year we didn’t have any placers and this year we had four. All of them (except for Garrett McAlexander) are the same kids as last year. We had seven kids in the varsity tournament, but only six scoring wrestlers because we had two heavyweights. Finishing 12th with less than half of the team scoring is really good.”

Warrior Memories: DN girls hoops on a roll again

It is really great to see our 2015 girls basketball getting off to such a great start.

When I see our girls perform at the level they do, it is fun to see how things have changed over the years. We tend to think of the history of Warrior basketball being a boys sport.

This is not necessarily true. 

4 White Stars for Warrior football

The Del Norte football team was shorthanded this year with lower-than-average numbers. That meant that the team’s top players had to stay on the field for most of the game.

The Warriors were awarded four White Stars in football this season and all four players impacted multiple phases of the game.

“You give out these awards, but gosh dang it we played as a team,” said Del Norte head coach Lewis Nova. “All coaches say that, but we had a lot of players going both ways. These guys were all a force on both sides of the ball, and some of them even on special teams.”

Reel Deal: Brief break from raging rivers

Anglers have been at the mercy of Mother Nature for the past couple weeks as rains have pummled the Northwest, leaving rivers blown out from California to Washington along the Pacific Coast. Sunny and mostly dry conditions since Monday have given sportfishermen have a brief window of opportunity to search for steelhead on local rivers, however, as the Smith River rounded into shape for drift boats to try their luck.

DN boys win title 39-29 in Phoenix

The Del Norte boys basketball team won its first preseason title of the season at the three-day Phoenix (Ore.) Tournament. The Warriors swept through pool play with a 44-38 victory over Taft Thursday and a 44-42 win against Cascade Christian Friday to earn a spot in Saturday’s championship game. Del Norte pulled away late for a 39-29 win over Sutherlin for the title.

Warriors’ head coach Blaine Lopez said the team struggled shooting the ball for most of the weekend but was able to win thanks to its defense. There is still plenty to improve upon on the defensive end however.

Warrior girls win three in Phoenix

The Del Norte girls basketball team sandwiched a pair of relatively easy victories around a major upset that sent shock waves through Oregon this weekend at the Phoenix Tournament as the Warriors went 3-0 to remain undefeated.

The Warriors got a 20-point performance from senior Siera Fitzhugh in a 58-28 victory over Cascade Christian on Thursday to start the weekend off on the right foot.

“She set the momentum for the weekend,” said head coach Jeff Cook.

On Friday, Del Norte’s task got significantly more difficult against two-time defending 4A Oregon state champion Sutherlin, which was riding a winning streak of over 60 games heading into the game.
