Del Norte wrestlers bounce back at Eagle Point

After a rough first duel of the season in Eureka Thursday, the Del Norte wrestling team started to round back into form in Oregon over the weekend at the Eagle Point Invitational.

The Warriors took fourth place as the lone school from California in the 13-team invitational, just six points behind third-place South Medford. Eagle Point finished in first place by a comfortable margin.

Boys basketball ready to break in home uniforms

The Del Norte boys basketball team has already been in action for a month and a half but the Warriors are finally ready to bring their traveling show home to Del Norte for their first game in Thunen Gym this season when the boys host Eureka on Wednesday starting at about 7:30 p.m.

Del Norte’s last home game came at the end of last season on Feb. 13, 2015, and the Warriors are excited to make their return.

“It has been a long time since we played at home,” said Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez. “In fact they were joking the other day saying, ‘Do we have white uniforms?’ It will be nice. I just hope that they don’t get over excited and try to do too much. It is our first game at home, but we still have a job to do and we have to make sure that we come out and play well.”

Warrior Memories: 1985 DN hoops was exciting to watch

One of the great things about being a long time Warrior fan is looking back at teams  in the past that I have had the privilege of watching.

The 1985 boys basketball team was exciting. They were coached by long-time coach Dale Thomas, they posted a 17 win 6 loss season and finished 10-2 in the league placing 2nd to the Eureka Loggers.

Warrior boys basketball picks up first HDN victory

The Del Norte boys basketball team’s offense woke up in the first half and its defense clamped down on the high-powered McKinleyville offense as the Warriors went on the road for a 75-52 victory over the Panthers on Friday.

The Warriors previous high score this season was 51 points but Del Norte put up 18 points in the first quarter and had 35 points by halftime en route to the teams highest score since a 79-59 victory over McKinleyville in the 2010-11 season.

The Del Norte girls basketball team couldn’t find the hoop on Thursday, scoring 14 points fewer than its previous season low score in a 46-27 loss to McKinleyville at home in Thunen Gym.

Before the start of the game, head coach Jeff Cook could tell that the Warriors were a little too relaxed heading into their third Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league play.

“Our energy level was low. We just played on Tuesday and we were really up for the Arcata game. I don’t know if we took this game for granted or what, but they weren’t focused before the game. They were way too loose,” Cook said. “McKinleyville was pumped up to play us. Their energy level was way better than ours. In this league it is going to be like that.”

Del Norte wrestlers falter at first Humbold-Del Norte duel

The Del Norte wrestling team wasn’t quite itself on Thursday in its first duel meet of the season in Eureka. The Warriors were fighting sickness and injuries, but head coach Clinton Schaad also saw plenty of mistakes in Eureka as Del Norte fell 57-13 to the Loggers.

“We don’t want to use excuses. We were sick, hurt, tired, whatever you want but at the end of the day we didn’t preform,” Schaad said. “The kids came out flat and the momentum went Eureka’s way early on when we lost some matches that we could have won or thought we should have won.”

The Del Norte girls basketball team suffered its first defeat of the season on Tuesday at the hands of Arcata.

The Warriors were neck and neck with the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 preseason favorites throughout the game, but the Tigers managed to grab some breathing room in the second half and hold on to escape Thunen Gym with a 48-41 victory.

“It was a good game,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook. “(Arcata) was just on fire. It didn’t seem like they missed very many shots. We didn’t shoot that well in the second half, but it was still close. I am proud of their effort.”
