Volleyball team wins at home

The Del Norte High volleyball team did enough to earn its fourth victory in a row, but the Warriors were hoping for a stronger showing in their 3-0 (25-23, 25-22, 25-14) victory at home over Fortuna on Thursday.

“We didn’t play to our potential at all,” said Del Norte co-head coach Pablo Lorenzi. “I don’t think they came prepared to play. We played good enough to get by, a win is a win, we just need to come in with the right attitude. We thought we would just walk in and win.”

The Warriors (17-7, 4-0 Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5) held the lead for most of the first set, but every time they looked poised to pull away from Fortuna (6-13, 1-2 H-DN Big 5), the Huskies would make a run to get back into the game.

The Warriors pulled ahead 12-6 early in the first set, but Fortuna battled back to tie the game at 16. Del Norte couldn’t regain any breathing room, never again leading by more than three, but the Warriors pulled out the 25-23 set victory.

 The second set was more of the same for Del Norte. The Huskies were able to build up a lead early in the set, up by at many as three points at 12-9. The Warriors slowly climbed back into the lead, however, tying the game at 17 and pulling ahead for a 25-22 win.

“We did some good things, but then we would fall apart,” Lorenzi said. “We have a lot of stuff to work on, and a lot of it isn’t physical. A lot of it is mental.”


Another win over Fortuna

The Del Norte High tennis team picked up another victory Tuesday, topping Fortuna 7-2 at home.

“The girls all moved well, played aggressively, and had a plan as to how they were going to play before going into their matches,” said head coach Jane Rumiano.

The 7-2 victory is a slight improvement over the 6-3 win that Del Norte recorded when the girls traveled to Fortuna in September.

“I feel like we improved from the last time that we played,” said Del Norte senior Panhia Yang. “From the beginning of the season, we have all improved in the little things and the big things. I feel like the team has taken one step further.”

Yang had a nearly perfect day. She beat Fortuna’s Katrina DeVere 8-0 in her singles match.

“I feel like I placed the ball more accurately than the last time I played her,” Yang said.
“I was also serving better than last time.”

After the singles victory, Panhia teamed up with Debbie Yang to beat Katie Holland and Coleen Sandberg 8-1 in doubles.

“My partner did good at the net,” Panhia Yang said. “I was pretty proud of her. Today we didn’t communicate as much as we normally do. We usually play better, but we got the win.”


Del Norte happy to run at home

Del Norte High’s cross country teams held their only home meet of the season Wednesday at the Del Norte Golf Course.

“I think they compete a little better at home, especially the JV kids,” said cross country coach Kirk Burrows. “It is always nice for the parents to be able to come out and see their kid run.”

The Arcata boys and girls came away with the team championship in boys and girls varsity, but the Warriors were dominate in the junior varsity boys division.

Del Norte’s Garrett Galea won the boys JV race with a time of 12:03, just five seconds faster than teammate Parker Thompson, who took second place. Nicholas Jacobs also slipped into the top four with a time of 12:26.

“It was kind of encouraging for our younger kids,” Burrows said. “They got first, second and fourth in the JV race. That was good for them.”

It was just the second JV race of the season.


Warriors find goal in 5-2 victory

The Del Norte High boys soccer team used a strong second half against South Fork to earn a 5-2 victory at home Wednesday.

The Warriors hit a snag early, falling behind 1-0.

“We were in a rush,” said head coach David Sanyaolu. “I think that they were too eager to get a win.”

Del Norte was able to rebound and retake control of the game.

The Warriors found the equalizer on a penalty kick in the first half by top goal scorer Jesus Herrera to head into halftime tied 1-1.


Girls golf wraps up season at Bigfoot

Del Norte’s Sierra Fitzhugh tied her personal-best score of 94 at Bigfoot Golf Course in Willow Creek to finish fourth in a Tuesday meet. The round secured her spot as the fifth-best golfer in the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league as the regular season comes to a close.

Gina Danna also shot a personal best round of 124 in Willow Creek, finishing 12th overall. She finished the season as the 17th best individual in the league in her first year golfing.

“I am really proud of the girls,” said coach Alison Eckart. “I was glad to see Gina Danna come up and play well as a rookie.”

With the regular season at a close, Eckart is already looking forward to next season. Both Fitzhugh and Danna are sophomores and have a couple years of eligibility remaining.


Volleyball sweeps Eureka 3-0

The Del Norte High volleyball team stayed perfect in Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 play with a 3-0 (25-9, 25-15, 25-20) victory on the road in Eureka.

“I thought we played pretty well,” said coach Debbie Lorenzi. “We actually ran some of the plays that we have been working on and we were efficient at them. Our passing was very good.”

After a fast start, Lorenzi felt that her team lost a little bit of steam toward the end of the match.

“We got a little lackadaisical at the end there, we seemed to get a little bored, but we pulled through it and got it together,” Lorenzi said.

Kaitlyn Clemann led the Warriors’ passing attack with 14 digs. Ericka Alcala and Regin Loftin both added four digs apiece.


Girls soccer falls 1-0 to South Fork

The Del Norte High girls lost a hard-fought game against South Fork 1-0 at home Wednesday.

The Warriors controlled the ball and were able to pressure the South Fork defense for much of the game, especially early.

“We were pressuring them constantly in the first half, we got it into the gaps, but our forwards couldn’t pick it up in time,” said Del Norte coach Clar Byers.

South Fork’s defensive formation made it difficult for Del No rte to get clean looks at the goal.


'Overmatched' against Prep

The Del Norte tennis team faced a good opponent on Saturday in North Coast Prep, and the Herons left Crescent City with a 7-1 victory over the Warriors.

“We, obviously, had a tough match against a much better and much more experienced NCP team,” said Del Norte girls tennis coach Jane Rumiano.

North Coast Prep won all six singles matches and one of two doubles matches, with the third being called due to rain. Rumiano said her team played fundamentally sound tennis, but it wasn’t enough against the Herons.

“Even though our girls hit the ball well, they had a hard time keeping up with the superior strategy of the NCP players,” Rumiano said. “First the Del Norte girls tried playing defensively. When that didn’t work, they tried playing offensively.

“Neither option made for many winning points, so they tried to just stay in the game with their opponents, but were clearly overmatched.”

The Warriors did get a 6-3, 6-3 doubles victory when the duo of Debbie and Panhia Yang beat North Coast Prep’s Annaliese Parkhurst and Tehra Riggan.


Warriors fall 2-0 in soccer at Brookings

The Del Norte girls soccer team traveled to Brookings, Ore., on Saturday for some non-league competition. The Warriors played a competitive match, but fell 2-0 to the Bruins.

“Overall, it was a really fun game,” said girls soccer coach Clar Byers. “I think all the girls enjoyed themselves. Brookings is a good group of girls to play against. They are learning too. It is just fun to play with teams that are just enjoying the game.”

Byers said the teams looked evenly matched, with both teams creating some good scoring chances.

“It was kind of an offensive struggle, just trying to finish,” Byers said. “We were up there and striking on goal. We were getting to their defense, but we just weren’t putting enough power on the ball to get it past the keeper, or missing proper placement.”

Brookings was able to break the scoreless tie in the first half. The Bruins had a corner kick and the girl was holding the corner flag while she kicked the ball into the penalty box.

“It looked, at that point, that we were going to get the first one cleared out,” Byers said. “I don’t know because they stopped the play.”
