DN Youth Wrestling signups Feb. 17-19

The Del Norte Youth Wrestling Club is gearing up for its 2014 season. The youth wrestling club includes wrestlers age 5 by the end of 2014 up through high school students.


Local teams turn out at The Classic

Jeremiah Norbury pulls down a defensive rebound in heavy traffic for the Redwood Reds in the 8th grade B division championship game against Smith River on Saturday at Thunen Gymnasium.
Middle school basketball teams came to Del Norte this weekend for The Classic: Eric Epperson Memorial.

“John Horner and myself decided that it would be nice to do a tournament in Eric’s name here,” said tournament organizer Marc Slayton. “Eric was a coach at Crescent Elk and taught there for 15 or 16 years. We wanted to do something that would carry on his legacy. He was always around kids. He coached kids and he loved kids. This is a way to remember him.”

The tournament grew from last year, with enough teams for two seventh grade divisions and two eighth grade divisions. Last year, there was only one seventh grade division and two three-team eighth grade divisions.



Del Norte wrestlers take 6th in Ukiah

The Del Norte wrestling team fought its way to a sixth-place team finish out of 28 teams at the 2014 Redwood Empire Classic in Ukiah on Saturday.

The Warriors had seven of the 14 wrestlers that competed finish in the top eight at the tournament.

“The kids wrestled well,” said Del Norte assistant coach Clinton Schaad. “We beat some teams that had beaten us at Anderson. We were pretty happy with the overall performance. We have kind of been building momentum the last few weeks.”



Warriors revenge

The Del Norte boys basketball team has had its fair share of troubles at the free throw line this year. The Warriors entered Wednesday’s matchup with McKinleyville under 50 percent for the season at the charity stripe, but they came up big from the line to push a close game into a comfortable 58-47 victory in Thunen Gymnasium.

The Warriors went 13-of-15 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter, including hitting all eight in the final 1:20 to secure the win and avenge one of just two losses in the first half of the conference season.


Shooting woes plague DN in McKinleyville

Warriors struggle to score in 43-36 loss to Panthers

The Del Norte High girls basketball team continued its recent scoring struggles Tuesday. The Warriors went into McKinleyville and came away with a 43-36 loss to the Panthers.

The Warriors haven’t scored more than 36 points in their last three games. Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook said the Warriors had plenty of open shots, as they have throughout the low-scoring streak.


Warriors surge to 43-38 win at Mack

The Del Norte wrestling team grabbed a pair of dual victories on Wednesday night in McKinleyville.

The Warriors started the night with a 60-24 victory over Hoopa and ended with a tough 42-37 win over host McKinleyville for a clean sweep.

Del Norte used the match against Hoopa largely as a warm-up. Hoopa brought only four wrestlers, so Del Norte was guaranteed the team victory before the first match was even wrestled. The Warriors used the opportunity to get some junior varsity wrestlers some mat time.


Reel Deal: Rain finally brings out some fish

With enough rain to create great fishing conditions last week and even more in the forecast for this weekend, it almost feels like a regular North Coast winter again.

Steelhead fishing on the Smith and Chetco rivers was fantastic after last week’s rain, and although fishing has became tough on the Smith with low, clear conditions, the Chetco is still running strong.

DN wrestlers gain experience in succesful weekend

The weekend was a learning experience for the Del Norte wrestling team.

The Warriors split up on Saturday, sending five of their top wrestlers to Santa Rosa for the hyper-competitive Maria Carillo Tournament. The rest of the team stopped in Willits for a junior varsity tournament.

In Maria Carillo, none of the Warriors was able to place, but four came within one win of reaching the podium.
