Boys basketball edges Taft 44-38 to open tourney

The Del Norte boys basketball team overcame some early struggles and was able to put Taft away 44-38 on Thursday in the Warriors first game at the Pheonix Tournament in Oregon.

“Any win is a good win, we are happy about that,” said Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez. “But we need to play with more intensity than that or we are going to be in trouble. We were fortunate that they missed a few shots and we hit a few shots down the stretch.”

The 2015-16 wrestling season is officially underway and the Del Norte grapplers got off to a strong start at their annual home tournament — the Battle at the Border.

This year’s battle was a little bit tilted towards Oregon, with tournament champion Crater (259 points) battling it out with Grants Pass (254.5) for the team championship, but the Humboldt-Del Norte League also had a good showing and gave fans a first look at how competitive the league will be this year.

Del Norte finished tied for third with Eureka at 163 points and Fortuna came in fourth place with 162.5 points as the expected league leaders battled neck and neck throughout the day.

Reel Deal: Blown out rivers may usher in steelhead run

The bulk of the Salmon run has already moved upstream on the Wild Rivers Coast, and the latest storms, the largest so far of the season, may spell the end of the salmon run on the Chetco River, but there should be a few more salmon up for grabs on the Smith, Elks and Trinity rivers this Saturday before rains forecast for later in the weekend blow out the rivers once again. As the salmon season begins to decline, however, the winter steelhead run is likely hot on its heels. The same rains that have ushered the salmon upstream will likely carry in the first major push of steelhead in the coming weeks.

Warrior Memories: Ron is a Warrior wrestler to remember

It was really great to go to Thunen Gym Tuesday night to watch the Warrior winter sports season begin, when our girls basketball team hosted the girls from St. Bernard’s and got things started right with a win.

Along with the boys and girls basketball teams we also have Warrior wrestling going on. The Warrior wrestling program has for a long time provided a lot of excitement.
