 After several years of low attendence, 33rd Rowdy Creek Steelhead Derby draws 22 teams 

The Rowdy Creek Fish Hatchery Steelhead Derby, once a widely reknown fishing competition throughout the region, was back at full throttle this year. The derby was again pushing the competitions’ maximum capacity with 22 teams — almost double last year’s total.

“It is like back in the old days,” said Craig McRae, a Vacaville resident who has been coming to the RCFH Steelhead Derby for over 20 years. “For the last four or five years the numbers have been down around a dozen teams, but back in the old days we had about 22 to 24. I think it is all credit to Kimberlee Swift. She is the new director of the derby and she has worked her tail off. Whatever went right is because of her. She just dove into it like a madman and it paid off. She is a go-getter.”

Junior varsity players and coaches both take valuable lessons away from basketball season 

It was a year of growth for the Del Norte girls basketball junior varsity team in 2015. Everyone from the players to the first-year JV coach learned valuable lessons on the court as the team finished 8-9 overall and 3-5 in the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5.

“It was my first year coaching girls high school,” said head coach John Horner, who has coached this freshmen class every year since they were in sixth grade. “It was the first time in a few years that I was coaching a brand-new group of girls that I hadn’t coached before (the sophomores). It was a fun time because they taught me just as much as I taught them.”
