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.”


Teams go 3-2 on road

Reel Deal: Chinook show up

Anglers on the Klamath and Trinity Rivers are finally experiencing the chinook salmon fishing that was expected with the second highest predicted return of salmon on record.

Lower Klamath River

Below the confluence with the Trinity River, 398 adult salmon were harvested in the first week of October, with the majority (319) coming from below the Highway 101 Bridge.  

Almost 200 jacks were caught above the 101 bridge, but most of the adults were caught near the mouth.

“Usually it’s getting pretty quiet down at the mouth, but since the mouth is now flowing almost straight out center, fish did make two huge pushes in the last week,” said Sara Borok, California Fish and Wildlife scientist.

Chetco bubble fishery

The Chetco bubble season closes after Sunday, but the chinook salmon that have been seen most recently are averaging 30 pounds, according to guide Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing.


Exciting game ends in DN’s favor

The Del Norte football team played the role of homecoming spoiler on Friday, beating McKinleyville 22-21 in a closely contested game for the Panthers’ homecoming.

Trailing 21-14 with less than three minutes in the fourth quarter, Del Norte engineered what would be the game’s winning drive.

Quarterback Steve Maready lead the Warriors 66 yards down the field, capped by a 15-yard touchdown run by senior Dylan Pease to pull within a point of McKinleyville.

“Our team fought,” said football coach Ray Rook. “When the chips were down, they fought through it and were able to come back.”

Trailing by one point, Del Norte head coach Ray Rook decided to go for the win with a two-point conversion. Chad Bell took the handoff around the left side and into the end zone to give the Warriors the 22-21 lead with 1:36 left.

“I have confidence in our guys that they can make a play,” Rook said of his decision to go for the two-point conversion. “We thought it was something we would try to see what would happen and they did it.”


Fitzhugh shoots her best score

The Del Norte girls golf team is low on numbers, but the Warriors got a pair of good rounds from both girls that competed at the Baywood Golf Course in Arcata.

Sophomore Sierra Fitzhugh shot a personal best score of 94 at the tournament. Fitzhugh’s previous 18-hole low score was 101.

“Sierra is definitely playing to her strengths,” said girls golf coach Alison Eckart. “She is looking at the tees and playing the fade that she has — she is being very strategic. She is also putting much better.”

Fitzhugh is currently fifth individually in the Humbolt-Del Norte League Big Five standings. She is in position to earn a white star when the regular season comes to a close on Tuesday.

Fellow sophomore Gina Danna was the only other Warrior to turn in a score at the meet. Danna finished with a score of 142. Danna had not golfed before this year and Eckart has been pleased with her progress during the year.
