The Del Norte boys golf team had a strong showing in its second meet of the season at the Willow Creek Golf Course on Monday.

Castle Rock Charter School forms first-ever athletic team this spring after gaining CIF membership 

The scene on the track around Mike Whalen Field this spring is largely unchanged from years past. Like every year, anywhere from 50 to 80 athletes from Del Norte High School can be seen warming up for the upcoming track and field season. Look a little closer, however, and one can see a shiver of purple Sharks swimming through the sea of Warrior blue this season.

For the first time ever, Castle Rock Charter School is proud to offer an athletic option to its students in the form of a track and field team.

Smith, Chetco too low to drift 

The annual steelhead run on the Smith and Chetco rivers doesn’t appear to be finished yet, but with little rainfall in the last month, both local rivers are running extra low and clear. There are still reports of steelhead on the Smith with fresh fish still coming in from the ocean, but most anglers have been waiting for rain before they try to haul them in.

Instead, many fishermen have headed out into the ocean where lingcod fishing has been red-hot out of Brookings Harbor.


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.
