Wrestlers heading to Redding

The Del Norte wrestling team is ready to get back to work for the first time since Winter Break on Friday when the Warriors travel to Redding for the team’s fifth tournament of the season. It will be the team’s second two-day tournament of the year.

Head coach Aaron Schaad said tournament organizers are expecting 42 teams in attendance and will probably have 32-man brackets for each weight class.

Arcata pulls away from Del Norte late for a 45-35 victory in the Big 5 opener

The Del Norte girls basketball team gave itself a chance against defending Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league champion Arcata in the Warriors’ league opener at home in Thunen Gym, but Del Norte missed too many shots down the stretch to complete the comeback as the Tigers escaped Del Norte with a 45-35 victory Tuesday.

“I was happy with the effort,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “I was happy with our defense at times. We just couldn’t make layups. We were in the game pretty much the whole time.”

Boys capture Bandon hoops crown

The Del Norte boys basketball team seems to be hitting its stride just in time for the start of the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league season this week.

The Warriors wrapped up their non-conference schedule on Saturday at the Bandon Tournament, where Del Norte won two games in two days to earn the team’s first tournament championship of the season.

“Coaches want to win every game, obviously, but winning a tournament championship like this really doesn’t mean a whole lot,” said Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez. “The main thing that I liked was that we played better this weekend.”

Warrior girls basketball splits pair of tough games

The Del Norte girls basketball team wrapped up its non-conference season with a pair of tightly contested games at the Bandon Tournament over the weekend. The Warriors played St. Mary’s in the first game, falling 34-31.

“It was back and forth for the entire game; we just couldn’t get any rhythm going,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook.

Del Norte Little League sign-ups

Del Norte Little League sign-ups are open, but the deadline is fast approaching as all interested little leaguers must be signed up by the end of January.

Prospective Little Leaguers can sign up online at delnortell.com.

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.
