Seniors Edwin Aguilar and Cheng Vang were clutch for the Warriors, knocking in two goals apiece.

Co-coach A.J. Myer-Zlokovich said the team did a good job controlling the ball, distributing it and taking advantage of shot oppurtunites on goal.

Other Warriors who scored were Ian Jager and Moises Molina.

Myer-Zlokovich said it was nice to see the team improving its play from the first game of the year,

“Overall, I would say it’s a step up,” he said. “Hopefully, we play that way against Big 4 teams.”

Myer-Zlokovich said senior sweeper  Jeremy Holloway did an excellent job of being calm and keeping the Crusaders from the goal and getting decent shot chances.

The Warriors improved to 1-1 for the year.

The Del Norte High varsity volleyball team composed themselves after falling behind two games  to none against Hoopa at home Tuesday night, dominating the rest of the way for a five game  victory and avoiding the near upset.

Del Norte won the contest 23-25, 22-25, 25-20, 25-6 and 15-8 to improve to 3-2 for the year.

“It was really bad the first two game and it was really good the last three,” co-head coach Pablo Lorenzi said.  In the end, Lorenzi said, it came down to having a better attitude, not worrying about losing, and just going out and having fun, which is what sports is supposed to be about, especially on the high school level.

After coming off a loss to Brookings-Harbor at home last week, the Del Norte Warriors came out quite flat against the Hoopa Warriors.

Del Norte lacked any spark, hitting balls into the net and letting balls easily drop on their side for scores as Hoopa capitalized and took the first two games in front of a stunned Del Norte crowd used to the home team dominating things.

“We were like zombies,” Lorenzi said. “We were just  standing there lifeless.”

CASA golf tourney a success

Children in foster care often “fall through the cracks” of an overworked and overwhelmed system. Many go without the medical care they need, do poorly in school, or don’t get the opportunity to connect with relatives and loved ones. In Del Norte County, CASA of Del Norte is working to change all of that.

To raise awareness and funds for their program, CASA of Del Norte holds an annual golf tournament each summer.  This year, the 10th Annual “Chip in for Kids” Golf Tournament was held on Aug. 29 at the Del Norte Golf Course. 

Among golfers, the CASA tournament is known as the “fun” tournament and 69 players competed in men’s, women’s and mixed teams, in both Handicap and Callaway categories. 

First place winners in each category won individual trophies, and a new perpetual trophy will be displayed at the golf course with the winners’ names on it.

“We are really pleased at the number of golfers this year,” says CASA Executive Director Susie Minx.  “We are also thankful for the local businesses that have partnered with us by donating either cash sponsorships or items for our silent auction.”
