Warrior Memories: Trehearn provided height for Warriors

As I look at this year’s Warrior boys basketball team, it really reminds me of my days as a Warrior. Team height was something that was always missing. At 6 feet, 2 inches I was regularly one of the tallest Warriors. We never had a player that could dunk a ball.

During the 1948-49 season we finally got a legitimate tall player. Harry Trehearn stood about 6 feet, 6 inches, and all of us had to look up at him. He was a senior that had always been here, but had finally come into his own.

Several Warrior wrestlers still in play

The Del Norte wrestling team saw some of its toughest competition of the year on Friday when the Grants Pass Wrestling Winter Kickoff tournament began. Although the Warriors struggled early on, they came on strong late and seven Warriors remain in the running for the tournament finale today.

“This is the toughest tournament that we have been in all year. There are a lot of the same teams that we saw at the Del Norte Tournament, plus a few teams that we haven’t seen yet,” Del Norte assistant coach Clinton Schaad said. “We came out a little flat in the morning; I’m not sure why, but after that first round the kids kind of woke up and wrestled a lot better.”

Del Norte boys playing for third place

The Del Norte boys basketball team split its first two games at the Red Bluffs Tournament on Thursday and Friday and will face Enterprise today at 4:30 p.m. in the third-place game.

The Warriors topped host Red Bluffs 50-44 on Thursday to kick off the tournament behind the best effort Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez has seen out of his kids in the young season.

Del Norte recognizes seniors, scholarship and successful 2014 season at awards banquet 

Players, coaches and family of the Del Norte football team gathered for one last look back at a fantastic 2014 season that saw the Warriors win a Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league championship with an undefeated conference record and a run to the quarterfinals of the North Coast Section Division IV playoffs at the annual awards banquet on Monday.

One of the highlights of the night was the acknowledgement of senior quarterback and defensive back Steven Maready as the HDN back league MVP. 

“It is quite an honor for us — to the team and to the commitment of the players — to have Steven Maready be the league MVP,” said Del Norte head coach Ray Rook said. “It is a team accomplishment.”

The 42nd Annual Jaycees Girls Basketball Tournament had to scramble to fill all five brackets in the week leading up to the event, but once everything got set the two-day tournament went off without a hitch Friday and Saturday.

Del Norte County had even more representatives than originally expected with nine local schools competing in the 40-team tournament. Crescent Elk had three eighth grade teams and a seventh-grade team in attendance. Redwood sent three teams with the eighth-, seventh- and sixth-graders all represented. Smith River also had a team compete, as did Uncharted Shores Academy.

DN wrestlers win team trophy in Mack Tourney

Warriors crown two champions, two more runners-up in McKinleyville 

The Del Norte wrestling team had to tweak its schedule a little this weekend, but came away with a third place finish in McKinleyville on Saturday.

The Warriors were originally scheduled to send some of their top wrestlers to North Bend to compete, while the less experienced wrestlers went south to McKinleyville, but with several wrestlers out with family commitments and injuries, the Warriors decided to take everyone to McKinleyville.

“I thought we wrestled pretty well,” said Del Norte assistant coach Clinton Schaad. “The kids had a good time and wrestled hard. We didn’t have a whole lot of negatives. We think if we had had our whole team there we may have done a little better, but we are pleased.”

Warrior girls basketball grabs two tourney wins

The Del Norte girls basketball team grabbed a pair of wins at the Phoenix tournament to climb back above .500 for the season with a 38-31 victory over Cascade Christin and a 56-39 win over host Phoenix before falling to Eagle Point in the de facto championship game on Saturday.

Del Norte jumped out to a big lead against Cascade Christian before holding off a late charge to get the win.

Del Norte baseball gets a boost

The baseball community in Del Norte is hoping for a big boost in funding this year with the creation of the Warrior Baseball Boosters.

Five current and former baseball coaches in the community have come together this year to form the brand-new organization with the stated goal of raising money for some long-overdue maintenance and equipment upgrades.

“Baseball is just not something that is highly regarded in our area because of the weather and because we always have to travel an hour-and-a-half to play games,” said Sean Harper, Del Norte’s new junior varsity baseball coach and president of the Warrior Boosters. “This is something that has needed to be done for a while. Now that I am back in the fold at the high school this year helping Travis out, it seemed like the right time to get this going.”

Boys basketball wins two of three

For the second weekend in a row the Del Norte boys basketball team finished up its weekend tournament with a 2-1 record.

The Warriors kicked off the tournament against St. Mary’s and stayed close through the first half, but a 38-point second half allowed St. Mary’s to run away with the win.

“We have played very well defensively except for one half this year,” said head coach Blaine Lopez. “We gave up 38 points in the second half against St. Mary’s and that is why we lost the game. St. Mary’s played well, too. They made big shots and we didn’t. Other than that second half though, we have been playing fine on defense.”
