The Del Norte football team honored its 15 senior players on Senior Night at Mike Whalen Field on Friday, and four of those seniors found the end zone in the Warriors’ 62-7 victory over Arcata in the regular-season finale.

“Winning on senior night, our last home game ever here, it is a good feeling,” said senior Dylan Pease. “It helps us pick up some momentum for the playoffs or whatever comes after this.”

Seniors Pease, David Sathe and Keawne Fiester all found their way into the end zone for Del Norte and senior Jackson Evans scored two touchdowns for the Warriors. Del Norte also had a pair of fumble recoveries from senior Josiah Johnson.

“The seniors stepped up tonight,” said Del Norte head coach Ray Rook. “We had a chance to start most of them, and we got them in meaningful playing time early. It was a tribute to a lot of their hard work.”

Del Norte jumped all over Arcata in the first half. The Warriors had great field position throughout the half, taking advantage of Tiger mistakes to run out to a 55-0 first half advantage.

“We were able to get into some phases of our offense that we haven’t been into yet this year and, so, some good things,” Rook said. “We limited mistakes for the most part.”

In the first half alone, Del Norte forced five Arcata turnovers, including one interception and four fumble recoveries. The Warriors recovered another fumble in the second half.

Area youths had a chance to try their hand at pheasant hunting on Oct. 28 at the Junior Apprentice Pheasant Hunt at Lake Earl Wildlife Area.

The event started with a hunter safety briefing for kids to review the information that they learned in the class they had to complete to sign up for the Pheasant Hunt.

After that, the kids had a couple hours to try to bag their own pheasants.

“Basically, the kids went out with a volunteer adult and a dog handler and they have an opportunity to hunt pheasants,” said Robin Galea, wife of event organizer Frank Galea. “They can bag up to two birds. Some of the kids were lucky enough to get to two and some don’t get any, but they generally all get some shooting in.”

Everyone involved was also treated to a barbecue, held between the morning and afternoon hunting sessions.


Warriors fall 3-1 in one-match playoff in Arcata Thursday night

Del Norte volleyball misses chance at automatic bid into NCS Tournament

The Del Norte volleyball team dropped a tightly contest match 3-1 (18-25, 25-20, 25-23, 26-24) to Arcata on Thursday night in a one-match playoff to decide who would earn the HDN Big 5 automatic bid into the North Coast Sectional tournament.

“It was probably the best high school volleyball game I have been around in a long time,” said Del Norte coach Pablo Lorenzi. “Nobody got a commanding lead. It was all just nip-and-tuck the whole time. Every time somebody would get ahead two or three points, the other team would come back two or three points.”

Lorenzi has been disappointed in the Warriors’ level of play over the course of their final few regular season matches, but on Thursday Del Norte put up a strong fight in Arcata.

“Their attitude was better, their communication was better,” Lorenzi said. “I liked the way we held our own, especially with such a big crowd there. I really think the crowd helped Arcata. It motivated their team to be better. In some cases it was a detriment to us, but overall we played better than we have in similar situations.”


Reel Deal: Slow fall fishing

Recreational crabbers have hit the sea since the season started on Saturday. Crab catches have been low in number, but high in meat. Del Norte Triplicate / Bryant Anderson
The first Dungeness crabs caught out of Crescent City this season are reportedly in good shape and full of meat, but the crabs have not been filling the traps of local sport crabbers in great numbers during the first few days of the recreational season that started Saturday.

Meanwhile, salmon fishing on local rivers has been plagued by a fairly dry fall, and about the only waterway worth trying right now is the Chetco, which opened for fall chinook fishing Saturday.

Chetco River

Numerous chinook and even a few steelhead were reportedly caught on the Chetco during the first few days of fishing, according to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

“Bobbers and eggs” is how guide Andy Martin, of Wild Rivers Fishing, describes the type of fishing best suited for the current low-water conditions.

Martin said there has been a good bite early in the morning in  the five-mile stretch below the North Fork Chetco confluence  while using sand shrimp and salmon roe below a bobber.

“Between Loeb (State) Park and Social Security Bar there are a lot of fish spread out,” Martin said. “Any hole that has any depth to it is stacked with fish.”


Warriors Co-HDN Big 5 Champs

For the first time since 2009, the Del Norte volleyball team finished the regular season on top of the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 standings. The Warriors secured their share of a co-league championship on Tuesday with a 3-1 victory over Fortuna.

Kaitlyn Clemann recorded 16 kills and 6 digs for Del Norte.

Kayla Costello had 14 kills and tied with Samantha Lundin for a team-high 19 assists.

Grace Bruschi and Ericka Alcala led the team with 10 digs apiece.

The win brought Del Norte to 23-9-1 overall and 7-1 in the league. Arcata also won its match on Tuesday, beating Eureka 3-1 to also finish 7-1.

Both teams will be recognized as league champions.

“It feels good,” Alcala said. “It is a different feeling than last year (when Del Norte finished second). It is definitely better.”

Although the match against Fortuna ended with a victory  Tuesday, the Warriors were not pleased with how they played.


Doubles teams reach finals

The Del Norte girls tennis season ended Friday at the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 Double Tournament in Fortuna and the Warriors finished in style.

North Coast Prep Academy won the tournament and will travel to the Bay Area to compete in the North Coast Sectional Tournament, but the Warriors had all three doubles teams reach the finals of their respective brackets.

“All of the girls played the best tennis of the season in the doubles finals,” said Del Norte tennis coach Jane Rumiano. “Each of them came off the courts totally depleted of energy and proud of the effort they’d made to win. It was a great end to the season and everyone was making plans for next year on the ride home.”

Four of the six Warriors who competed in Fortuna will be eligible again next year.

Rollin' round the U.S.

Local skating couple competes in National Roller Derby competitions in Iowa, Oklahoma

It didn’t take long for the sport of roller derby to take over the hearts of husband-and-wife duo Joe “Sloppy Joe” Arispe and Danielle “Ragin’ Reg” Arispe.

Professionally, Joe is a commercial fisherman and Danielle is a mortgage support specialist at Rogue Federal Credit Union, but when they are not at work they are frequently roller skating somewhere.

The Arispes, who live in Brookings, have been participating in roller derby for about three years now, and both of them travel around the country to compete.

Danielle was the first to try the derby, joining up with the Tsunami Sirens in fall 2010.

“I used to speed skate as a kid,” Danielle said. “Joe met one of the girl’s husbands and told him, ‘My wife was a speed skater and my father-in-law used to do roller derby.’ The next thing I know, I have a girl named Stormy Seize (Skylar Bieraugel) calling me and trying to get me to come down here. I did and the rest is history.”
