Starting this fall Del Norte High School sports fans can watch TV broadcasts of Warrior home sporting events — usually a few days after they happen.

Beginning with falls sports  in September, longtime local sports radio broadcaster Chuck Blackburn and his producer, Dennis Gill, plan to show the home games of all the Warriors fall sporting teams on Charter Cable Channel 4. In the case of football, road games will also be shown.

“We’re quite excited,” Blackburn said. “We really want to show and highlight all the teams.”

Gill said he’s pleased that all sports will receive air time and that there will be another local forum to highlight high school students.

“The girls sports are just as vital as the boys,” Gill said.

The first year of a local tennis event geared towards the youth of the area took place in Crescent City this past Saturday.

Jimbo’s Junior Tennis Tournament, which was sponsored by the family and friends of the late Dr. Jim Piotrowski, took place all day at the Del Norte High School tennis courts. 

The Del Norte Tennis Association conducted the tournament for kids ranging from 7 to 18 years old. 

A group of 35 kids and teens took part, said event organizer Jane Rumiano, adding that the event is a great way to encourage tennis in the area and provide a showcase for these young tennis players.

“It gives them an opportunity to show their improvement to family and friends,” Rumiano said.”

Piotrowski, who passed away recently, was a former president of the Del Norte Tennis Association.

The Del Norte Little League Junior softball All-Stars battled their way to the championship game of sections in Chico.
The squad fell to Paradise 10-0 Tuesday night in the title match.

Del Norte head coach Rick White said that to his knowledge this was the furthest any Del Norte Little League softball team had gone in section play, and they are the first to make it to a section title game.

White said the girls came out a little bit flat in the title game and fell behind early.

While Del Norte lost on Tuesday, White said he could not be more pleased with what the girls accomplished to make it this far.
“We’re proud as can be,” he said. “I would take these girls to battle with me anytime.”

If the squad won on Tuesday they would have played one more game on Wednesday to determine who would earn the championship.
