Hard charging Fitzhugh finishes 3rd in HDN golf league

The Del Norte girls golf team’s regular season came to an end on Monday at the Beau Pre Golf Club in McKinleyville. The Humboldt-Del Norte girls golfers were treated to some harsh conditions in the seventh and final HDN meet.

“It was showering. It was really really wet,” said Del Norte head coach Allison Eckart. “That makes it tough because the ball gets no roll, the shots are harder to make, and there is a lot more mud. It was showering off and on for five hours.”

The Warriors’ top golfer, Siera Fitzhugh, continued her strong play through the second half of the season, battling through tough conditions for a score of 87.

Warrior volleyball outlasts Loggers

The Del Norte volleyball team wasn’t on top of its game when its Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 match in Eureka began on Tuesday, but the Warriors fought back to win the final three sets to escape the Loggers 3-2 (15-25, 24-26, 25-18, 25-15, 15-11).

“I think most of the girls were just afraid of losing. We played afraid out there, but I think the fear kind of left at about 15 points in the second game, and more anger came.” said Del Norte head coach Debbie Lorenzi. “At the end of the second game we started realizing what we had to do to win and we came through with a string of points there. After the second game I felt a little bit more confident that we could come back and win three straight games.”

DN cross country runs in Arcata meet

The Del Norte boys and girls cross country team was back in action on Wednesday with a meet in Arcata. The Warriors’ lone girl, Karlie Scott, turned in one of her fastest times of the season — 22:11 — to take 12th place overall.

“She ran an outstanding race, I thought,” said Del Norte assistant coach George Hartman. “22:11 is outstanding on that course. If you compare the courses, this is her best time of the year.”

Warriors boys soccer battles to a 2-2 draw

The Del Norte boys soccer team fell behind Eureka twice on Saturday, but both times the Warriors battled back to a tie for a 2-2 draw in Eureka — the second draw of the season between the Warriors and Loggers.

“The game was a difficult one for both teams,” said Del Norte head coach David Sanyaolu. “Neither could gain a lasting hold on the game. Our fighting spirit was on display yet again, coming back from behind twice to level the game.”

New look Warrior volleyball at Coos Bay tourney

Although the faces on the Del Norte volleyball team remained the same over the weekend, the Warriors mixed up a few positions over the weekend in Coos Bay, playing at the Marshfield Tournament.

Del Norte finished the tournament with a 0-1-2 record in pool play in a two-set maximum format. In both of the Warriors ties, Del Norte lost a nailbiting set that went into overtime with final scores of 28-26 and 28-27. In the consolation bracket, the Warriors won their first game before falling to Coquille to end Del Norte’s tournament.

Shorthanded girls soccer falls 9-0 to Loggers on the road

The Del Norte girls soccer team was missing several players for various reasons on Saturday, and the shorthanded Warriors struggled to keep up with Eureka, falling 9-0 on the road.

“We were down to 12 players,” said Del Norte head coach Clar Byers. “They gave it their best, had fun and got a little bit wet. I am happy with the girls. Some players who have not played got a lot of playing time.”

The Del Norte girls will be back in action on Wednesday, hosting St. Bernard’s. The Crusaders do not have a boys soccer team, so the girls will take the field at 3:30 p.m. for the only game of the day.

Warrior Memories: Cheerleaders officially competitive athletes now

As I was reading the article in the newspaper about the governor signing a bill that officially made competitive cheerleading an official interscholastic sport, my mind went back to what it used to be.


When I was a Warrior, each year the student body would elect three cheerleaders. These were usually girls with good leadership qualities and a lot of school spirit. Their job was to promote good sportsmanship and lots of enthusiasm at pep rallies and at Warrior contests.

The Del Norte football team jumped ahead early and coasted to a 41-21 victory in McKinleyville for the Warriors’ second straight win.

The defense did its part with two straight tackles behind the line of scrimmage in its first appearance. After Del Norte’s defense held on 3rd down, the Panthers were forced to punt, and the Del Norte special teams took over from there.
