The Surfside Bruins softball team has been around for the past seven years, but it has never had such a high concentration of players from Del Norte.

The Bruins’ 14-and-under team has 11 girls from the county on its 12-girl roster.

“We have gathered kids from Gold Beach, Brookings and Crescent City and put them on one ASA team and taken them around to tournaments,” said head coach Tony Baron, who has been with the program since its inception. “It just so happens that this year all the girls are from Crescent City with the exception of my daughter Tyrah.”

Warrior Memories: Warrior fans will never forget the late Drew Roberts

As an old Del Norte High School and Humboldt State player and fan, I was really sorry to hear of the passing of Warrior and Lumberjack legend Drew Roberts.

Those fans who followed the Warriors in the late ’50s will always look at Drew as one of the best all-around athletes to wear the blue and gold of the Warriors. While Drew is best remembered for his feats on the football field, where his pass catching gave Warriors fans a lot of thrills and earned him all-league honors, he was also an all-league performer on the basketball court and on the baseball field.

The Del Norte Volleyball Camp will wrap up today at noon. This year, the camp drew 32 participants, from sixth to ninth grade (this fall), and although that number is lower than it has been in the past, Del Norte varsity coach Debbie Lorenzi has liked what she has seen from the players that showed up.
