It was 99 years ago that Del Norte High School won its first athletic championship, which was earned in the sport of baseball.
Back then there were no interscholastic sports as we now know them. There were no high schools close enough for Del Norte to compete against. School busing for sports travel was a thing of the future.
In the spring of 1913 the Cal-Ore league was formed. It had four teams and Del Norte High School was the only school team. The other three teams were the Crescent City Crescents, the Smith River team and a team from Harbor, Ore.
