The Del Norte wrestling team fell short of its ambitious goal of winning a team title at the Humboldt Del Norte Championships on Saturday, but with five individual champions and four runners up, the Warriors didn’t feel like they came up short.

“We had a great day. We fell short of Eureka, but we have been chasing them all year,” said Del Norte head coach Clinton Schaad. “Of course we had some matches that we want back, but we ended up closing the gap a little bit in the final round. We lost the team title in the consolation matches. Eureka had kids come through and finish third and fourth. Our kids wrestled well, but we just couldn’t quite get over that hump. We had more finalists than anybody out here though.”

Girls basketball grabs 8 seed, 1st round at home

After spending the entire Dick Nicali Tournament on the road as the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5’s third seed, the Del Norte girls basketball team will get a chance to play some postseason basketball at home on Wednesday in the first round of the North Coast Section division IV tournament.

“We are glad that we get a home game so we don’t have to travel in the first round,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “We were expecting to travel just because that is usually how it happens around here. The girls are happy.”

The Warriors grabbed the No. 8 seed in the tournament with a 16-6 overall record, including the team’s recent run to the Nicali title game where they took second place. Del Norte will take on No. 9 seeded Kelseyville Wednesday with a 7 p.m. tipoff.

The Del Norte girls basketball team never trailed in the first round of the Dick Nicali Tournament in Eureka on Tuesday, but the Warriors lead was never more than nine points. 

The Loggers never let Del Norte get comfortable, making repeated runs at the Warriors’ lead, but Del Norte was able to hold off the charge down the stretch to earn a 40-37 victory and secure a return trip to Eureka on Thursday for a semifinal game against Humboldt-Del Norte Little 4 champion St. Bernard’s.

“It is awesome,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “Last year was our first year making it (to the Nicali Tournament) and we were out in the first round. This year is our second year and we are on to the second round. It was a big goal of ours just to get here this year.” 

Warrior wrestlers welcome HDN for finals

Once every five years the Humboldt-Del Norte wrestling championships come to Crescent City, and the Del Norte wrestling team is excited to host the event this year.

The HDN championships will decide the 2016 White Star winners, the overall team champion and also serve as the qualifying tournament for the North Coast Section meet next weekend.

“Our season isn’t over this week, but this is the last week before our HDN championships and our last week as a full team,” said Del Norte head coach Clinton Schaad. “I don’t know how many kids we will have going to the NCS tournament. I would like to take all 14, but we will figure that all out on Monday.”

Sometimes you are hot, and sometimes you’re not.

That was the case for the Del Norte boys basketball team  this postseason. The Warriors lost 49-32 to Fortuna in the first round of the Dick Nicali Tournament on Monday after coming out flat and struggling to hit shots all game long. The Warriors were on fire just two days earlier, however, when they came up with a big 76-62 victory in McKinleyville to break the tie for third place and secure a spot in the tournament.

Del Norte sits at 13-8 overall this season as the year comes to a close.

Warriors go 2-2 reach NCS consolation semifinals

The Del Norte wrestling team traveled to Windsor on Friday for Saturday’s North Coast Section DII Redwood Empire Dual meet and the Warriors were pleased with how they wrestled, going 2-2 overall and finishing just one win away from a medal.

“It was definitely a good tournament,” said Del Norte head coach Clinton Schaad. We went down and wrestled hard and left it all on the mat.”

Del Norte started out the day with a 55-24 loss to Marin County Athletic League champion Redwood, falling to the consolation bracket. The Warriors beat No. 4-seeded Lower Lake 51-30 and topped Analy 48-36 in the consolation bracket to set up a rematch with Humboldt-Del Norte league champion Eureka in the consolation semifinals.

Reel Deal: Another good week of fishing

Most of El Nino’s biggest storms this winter have come as the steelhead started their winter runs on the Smith and Chetco rivers, thus anglers targeting the fish have been doing so in high flows for much of the season. But a week-and-a-half long break from the rains has local rivers running a little bit on the low side for the first time during the steelhead run.

Anglers have still reportedly been having luck on both the Smith and Chetco, especially by drift boat, throughout the week. Both rivers should remain fishable through the weekend when the annual Rowdy Creek Steelhead Derby kicks off Friday.

Warrior Memories: Canít think DN baseball without Teddy Hoffman

With baseball season here, I can’t look back at baseball without thinking of the name Teddy Hoffman. Teddy was a 1946 Warrior graduate, and what an athlete he was. He proved that you don’t have to be big physically to be outstanding athletically.

Teddy was able to play lightweight basketball all four years of high school. He made the All Humboldt-Del Norte League first team as a senior and was voted by both the heavyweight and lightweight teams as the Most Inspirational Player as a senior. His name appears on the old red and white blanket that is now in display in the museum.
