All eight Warriors score; Del Norte uses second-half surge to top Fortuna 48-40 

After the Del Norte girls basketball team closed out a 48-40 victory over the Huskies in Thunen Gym on Friday, the Warriors found themselves in a new position — .500 at 2-2 through the first half of league play.

The Warriors girls program has struggled in Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league play in recent memory, but this year’s team finds itself alone in third place halfway through league play.

“It has been a long time since the Del Norte girls have been 2-2 in league play,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “It means a lot to us. These are my first two wins in the league (as a coach) and (junior) Regin (Loftin) has been a starter for three years and this is her third league win.”

DN storms past Fortuna in 2nd half

Warrior boys stay tied for 1st in HDN Big 5 hoops race with huge 2nd half in Fortuna 

The anticipated hard-fought battle between two of the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 teams in a three-way for first place lived up to the billing in the first half, but the Del Norte boys basketball team ran roughshod over the Huskies in the second half in Fortuna and pulled away for an emphatic 65-42 victory on Thursday.

“We just played really well in the second half,” said Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez. “We didn’t turn the ball over; we played excellent on the defensive end; we didn’t give up second shots, and we made shots. It was a whole-team effort.”

Warrior Memories: DN couldn’t ask for a better assistant coach than Brous

As a former coach, I know how valuable good assistants coaches are.

When I attend Warrior varsity basketball games it is a pleasure to see another former Del Norte High standout athlete working with Blaine Lopez as his assistant. Dave Brous, a 1970 Warrior graduate, was a three-sport athlete while at Del Norte. He was the quarterback for the football team, point guard for basketball and an outstanding outfielder in baseball.

Reel Deal: Local rivers packed with out-of-town anglers

Smith River expected to be in good condition for drift boats through the weekend 

The past week has provided the best steelhead fishing of the season on both the Smith and Chetco rivers.

With river levels lowering to the perfect level for drift boats on both rivers, combined with the fact that most of the rivers up north into Oregon or south in Humboldt are still too high for drift boats, the Chetco River especially has been packed with boats throughout the week.

Home teams protect Thunen Gym in an all-Warrior showdown between Hoopa and Del Norte 

The Del Norte basketball teams were a perfect 4-for-4 on Tuesday as both varsity and junior varsity teams pulled out wins over Hoopa in a non-league showdown on Sportscasters Night hosted by Bicostal Media.

Del Norte fans packed Thunen Gym for a rare chance to see all four of the high school’s top basketball teams compete on the same night, in the same place.

Sirens run away with 328-126 victory over Sis-Q in rematch of both teams’ first-ever bouts 

The Tsunami Sirens kicked off their 2015 season against a familiar foe when the Sis-Q Rollerz from Medford, Ore., came to town. The Sirens met the Rollerz in the North Coast Roller Derby’s first-ever official bout back in 2011.

“We have kind of come up through the ranks together,” said Siren blocker Adrianna “Full Metal Jackie” Stefko.

Wrestlers take fifth at Eagle Point Invite

Del Norte takes eight grapplers to Oregon; seven Warriors place in top 6 

The Del Norte wrestling team continues to rack up the medals as seven of the eight Warriors entered into the varsity bracket placed in the top six.

Del Norte went on to finish with 100 total team points to take fifth overall out of 15 teams, dispite the small lineup.

“We only had about half a team, but we were still able to put up 100 points and take fifth place,” said Del Norte head coach Aaron Schaad. “An extra 40 points is very doable if we had a bigger lineup.”

Shorthanded Warriors commit 22 turnovers, struggle to rebound in loss to the Loggers Friday 

It was a bad night for the Del Norte girls basketball team to be shorthanded.

The Warriors fell behind early and were never able to close the gap against a bigger and more experienced Eureka team. The Loggers escaped Thunen Gym with a 46-32 victory on Friday.

Del Norte had just eight players in uniform for the game and was without starting freshman forward Claire Smith and senior forward Shelby Bomke, who missed the game against Eureka due to a dance competiton.

DN rolls over Eureka with big 2nd half

Warrior boys basketball dominates Loggers 67-28 in Eureka Thursday 

The Del Norte boys basketball team built up a bit of a cushion early in its first Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 road game of the season in Eureka, but the Warriors caught fire in the third quarter and ended up blowing the Loggers away 67-28 on Thursday to improve to 10-5 overall and 2-1 in the HDN Big 5.

Del Norte took a 24-15 lead into the locker room at halftime, but just 3:20 into the third quarter that advantage had ballooned to a 38-17 advantage and the Warriors pulled away for a big win.

Warrior Memories: Kunstal got wrestling started right in DN

It may be basketball season according to my four-season schedule, but there is another great program going, and that is wrestling.

One of the things I like about wrestling is that it gives students of all sizes a chance to compete in a good athletic program and be successful. The competitor who weighs 100 pounds can achieve as much success and recognition as the 250-pounder.
