The Del Norte Rod & Gun Club was once again the place to be for the top trapshooters in the West as the local club hosted its annual Crab Buckle Shoot Friday through Sunday in Smith River. This year’s turnout was one of the best ever, with more than 90 shooters from multiple states and two countries in attendance.

The top shooter in 2015 was Brian Fooks of Fort St. John, B.C., Canada, with an overall score of 474 (out of 500). Although Fooks, who has made the 25-hour drive south with several of his trapshooting brethren from British Columbia for seven years now, has won crab buckles in the past, this was his first time winning the big one.

The Warriors’ top finisher was Justin Schrader, who took third place at 132 pounds. Willie Gensaw (120) and Ta Tes Boulby (160) both finished fourth in their respective brackets.

“Ta Tes only lost to one kid in the whole tournament,” said Del Norte head coach Aaron Schaad. “He lost in the quarterfinals in overtime and in the third-place match 1-0. They were really close matches.”

Offensive woes continue as Warriors fall 38-36 to Arcata 

The Del Norte boys basketball team’s offensive stuggles seem to have followed it into the new year.

The Warriors struggled to score all night against a long and rangy Arcata defense on Friday in Thunen Gym. Although Del Norte’s defense kept the Warriors in the game, the Tigers were the team that made their shots down the stretch to escape Crescent City with a 38-36 victory in both team’s Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league opener.

Steelhead have begun to enter the river systems of the Smith and Chetco in droves over the past week, with local anglers posting their best week of the steelhead season yet. Due to a patch of dry weather, however, the river level has been dropping and drift boats are already finding it difficult to maneuver.  

Smith River

The past week has provided some of the best steelhead fishing yet this season on the Smith River, especially early in the week.

Jim Mitchell, of Gotcha Hooked Fish Trips reported that he had three clients on Monday and each hooked two steelhead apiece, netting three hatchery and three native steelhead. Mitchell’s crew also missed on about three fish that day.

Warrior Memories: I always remember that first league win

At this time of the year as I come up H Street and cross 9th Street, I can’t help but remember that it was this time of the year in 1948 that I was about to play my first league basketball game as a Warrior.

I wasn’t old enough as a freshman to play football, so this first weekend in January was my first Humboldt-Del Norte league game.

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.

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.”
