Warrior Memories: Athletic play only part of Yamor’s DN legacy

One of the things that makes Del Norte such a special place to live and coach is Warrior athletes. One such athlete was George Yamor.

George played for Hall of Fame coach Ed Fraser in the 1940s. He was an outstanding athlete in three sports but was especially good on the baseball diamond.

Warriors sweep Arcata in playoff

The Del Norte volleyball team proved once again that it is the class of the conference when playing at full strength, winning a one-game playoff for the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5’s automatic bid into the North Coast Section playoffs in Arcata on Thursday. The Warriors topped the Tigers 3-0 (25-20, 28-26, 25-20).

“We stayed consistent against them,” said head coach Debbie Lorenzi. “They had a few runs of five or so to catch up, but we were able to stop those runs. We were just consistently going at them all the time. We had really good teamwork. Our passing was awesome, our defense was great and offensively we just kept hitting it at them. Everything we have practiced and talked about we put together on that one night.”

Warriors sweep Eureka 3-0 in regular season finale; rematch in Arcata Thursday

For the second year in a row, the Del Norte volleyball team is on top of the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 standings, but once again the Warriors share that spot with Arcata.

Del Norte wrapped up the regular season with a 3-0 (25-9, 25-20, 25-10) win in Eureka.

“I liked the girls’ attitudes,” said Del Norte head coach Debbie Lorenzi. “We communicated well, but we had a hard time keeping our quickness going because the ball came over the net a little slow.”

King of Clubs: FootGolf: The best of both worlds

All over the country golf is being punched in the gut by three bullies: price, time and difficulty. 

The next generation golfer is weighed down by debt, busier schedules (perhaps because of working two jobs to pay their debt) and the inherent frustration which arises from learning a demanding hobby.

Warriors need one more win this Friday to secure an undefeated season 

The Del Norte junior varsity football team continued its pursuit of perfection on Friday with a convincing 29-0 victory at home over Fortuna.

Although the Warriors finished the game with a healthy lead, head coach Dan Forkner thought his squad was a little sluggish in the first half. The JV squad was plagued by penalties in the opening half, including one that negated a touchdown. Del Norte clung to a narrow 6-0 lead heading into halftime.

For the first time since 2007, the Del Norte football team sits atop the Humbolt-Del Norte Big 5 standings after a 35-13 victory over Fortuna at Whalen Field.

The Warriors found themselves in a dogfight at halftime, leading 14-13, but Del Norte exploded in the second half for 21 straight points and ran away with the win.

“We did what it took,” said senior captain Napooi Shorty. “We came out soft in the first half, but the coaches said, ‘This is our house. We have to come out and do this. This is our only chance to win the league.’”

The Del Norte girls soccer team finished the season on a high note, beating Eureka 3-2 in a closely contested season finale in Crescent City.

“Overall it was a very good game; it was very fun,” said Del Norte head coach Clar Byers. “Eureka was a little bit weakened, playing without a lot of their senior players (due to several injuries).”
