Warrior Memories: Polio couldn’t sideline Case

As a former Warrior who played in the late ‘40s and early ‘50s I often find myself looking back at a name that meant so much to Warrior athletes. That would be 1932 graduate Gordon Case.

In Gordon’s early years he was an outstanding athlete, but just before his 15th birthday he came down with polio. This confined Gordon to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, but did not stop him from becoming one of the Warriors’ greatest supporters.

Warriors fall to NCP

Warriors still have work to do after being swept by North Coast Prep in second meet of year 

The Del Norte boys tennis team saw its toughest competition so far in the young 2015 season against North Coast Prep on Tuesday. The Warriors were swept 5-0 in matches played after forfeiting three matches.

“This is a very good team and a well-coached team, so we will take it as a learned lesson and move on,” said first-year Del Norte head coach Jim Holt. “There is still plenty of things that we need to work on. We need to work on our footwork, our strategy and our volleys big time.”

C.C. Jaycees boys tourney back for 47th year

Eight Del Norte teams will compete in eighth-grade basketball season finale 

It’s that time of year again, when Del Norte County is inundated with eighth-graders from far and wide for the 47th annual Crescent City Jaycees Boys Basketball Tournament.

Although the annual event taking place this year on March 6 and 7 is billed as a basketball tournament, there is so much more involved with the Jaycees Tournament than just seven eight-team bracket style tournaments. In addition to basketball, there will be 23 cheerleading teams competing for the top prize in multiple divisions, a princess competition, a mascot competition, a poster contest and a hoops shoot contest. It will take a strong effort in each of those competitions for a school to earn the tournament’s most coveted prize — the Arman Gunnerson Sportsmanship Award.

DN track fundraiser kicks off

The Del Norte track and field team is set to kick off the second annual Warrior Pentathlon Fundraiser today and Friday.

Warrior head coach Samuel Escobar said the team raised roughly $4,200 last year with the pentathlon, in which the athletes are asked to contact 10 people to ask for donations or performance-based pledges. Most of the funds will go toward traveling expenses for the team this season.

High scores rolled at C.C. Open

Pins were dropping at an alarming pace over the weekend as five separate 700 series were rolled at the Open Championship Bowling Tournament at Tsunami Lanes last week.

Sea Quest was the top team this year with a score of 2,613 led by Doug Cairns with 700. Tami Cairns, Merle Helstowski and Troy Cairns also rolled for Sea Quest.

Lockwood takes 1st in season opener

The Del Norte boys golf team was a little bit shorthanded in its first meet of the season at Redwood Empire Golf & Country Club in Fortuna with just three golfers.

The Warriors’ top golfer and two-time Humboldt-Del Norte League individual champion Kobie Lockwood took an early lead in the league race, winning the meet by four strokes with a score of 74.

Warriors sweep St. B’s 4-0

The Del Norte boys tennis team kicked off its 2015 campaign with a victory on Saturday. The Warriors played host to St. Bernard’s and came away with a comfortable 4-0 victory.

“I was very happy with the first week,” said Del Norte head coach Jim Holt. “Anytime we get a win I am happy with that.”

Wrestling season ends at NCS

The Del Norte wrestling team’s 2015 season came to an end on Saturday in the North Coast Section Wrestling Championships in Fremont. The Warriors, who finished the year with just 12 kids on the roster, took 10 wrestlers to the NCS  Championships, but nobody was quite to make the medal stand.

“Even though we would have liked to compete a little bit better and get one or two guys on the stand, we were competitive in almost all of our matches,” said Del Norte head coach Aaron Schaad said. “I think they gained some really good experience for the two or three years that they will be back.”

High-scoring Sirens roll over Chico

North Coast Roller Derby sets a new team record with 335 points in “fun” bout 

The Tsunami Sirens controlled the track at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds on Saturday in their bout against Viva Roller Derby of Chico and ended up with a new high score in the 335-71 victory.

The Sirens' previous high was 328 points, set in January against Sis-Q Rollers of Medford in the team’s first bout of the year. The previous highest Siren score was 280 in 2013 in a 280-81 victory over the Red Bluff Derby Girls.
