Warrior Memories: Girls 1st to play bball at Del Norte

As I have stated in the past, I divide my four seasons as football, basketball, hunting and baseball, and we are now entering the start of basketball season.

The Warriors have just finished a great football season and fans are looking forward to a fun, exciting basketball season for both boys and girls.

Del Norte volleyball’s senior captain, Kayla Costello, became the second Warrior to earn Most Valuable Player honors in the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 in as many years when she was named co-MVP along with Arcata’s Gillen Martin this year.

Costello, a setter and hitter for Del Norte this season, was the only returning White Star award winner for the Warriors this year.

Del Norte’s 2014 season ends with 49-35 loss to San Marin in NCS quarterfinals Saturday 

It was everything one would hope to see in playoff football.

The defenses traded stops as Del Norte and San Marin battled for field position early but the offenses traded haymakers throughout the second half. The No. 4 Mustangs just had a few more big plays in them on Saturday as the No. 4 Warriors fell 49-35 in the quarterfinals of the North Coast Section Division IV playoffs.

“It was certainly two evenly matched teams,” head coach Ray Rook said. “To sum it up, we were just a couple plays and a couple inches away.”

Alums make college mark

This week, senior Kayla Costello signed a national letter of intent to play volleyball at Humboldt State University next year, becoming the latest in a long line of Warriors to make the jump to the ranks of college volleyball.

This year alone, four Del Norte alums continued their volleyball careers at the college level. Not only were Ashley Owen, Keirstyn Anderson, Kaitlyn Clemann and Ashton Smedley all on college rosters, but all four girls started all season and proved to be indispensable pieces of their respective teams.

Seniors Jordan Babich and Debbie Yang put the finishing touches on their high school tennis careers on Tuesday by finishing fourth overall in the North Coast Section Division II doubles championships at San Rafael High School and brought home a medal for their efforts.

“We are definitely pleased with what they accomplished — finishing fourth in the entire North Coast Section,” said Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar. “We are pleased with that and we were amazed at how well they played in the first match.”

Costello signs with HSU

Just weeks after senior captain Kayla Costello led the Del Norte volleyball team to its second straight Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 co-league title and an appearance in the North Coast Section Division III tournament, she signed her National Letter of Intent to play volleyball at Humboldt State University next season.

In the end, it was a fairly easy decision for Costello to join the Lumberjacks next year.

“They offered me a scholarship and I was thinking about playing there anyway, so that pretty much settled it,” Costello said.

Warriors ready for tough NCS road test

After an emphatic 56-0 home victory over Lower Lake in the first round of the North Coast Section Division IV playoffs, the Del Norte football team will head out on the road, likely for the remainder of its postseason run.

The fifth-seeded Warriors (9-2) will travel roughly 5½ hours south to Novato to take on No. 4 San Marin (8-3) in the quarterfinals on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.

Another successful youth football season came to a close on Sunday at the Redwood Bowl in Arcata, and Del Norte came away with runner-up finishes in all three division. Del Norte Youth Football president Justin Hall said roughly 150 kids participated in the program this year.

Chadwick drops decision in title fight

Warrior MMA loses fights, but picks up pride at Char-ae Heights 

Warrior MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) lost its fights at the “Quest for Title” in Trinidad at the Cher-ae Heights Casino on Saturday, but both local fighters were able to hold their heads high after some hard-fought matches.

Matt Chadwick with Warrior MMA fought Ronny Tsutsui Jr. in a International Sport Combat Federation 155-pound California State Title Fight in the semi-main event. Chadwick ended up losing by unanimous decision, but left feeling like he could have won.

The heavy rain that pounded fans, coaches and players alike at Whalen Field for most of the first half on Friday night eventually let up, but the Del Norte defense never relented as the Warriors shut out Lower Lake 56-0 in a first-round rout in the North Coast Section Division IV football playoffs.

“It is so important to get that first playoff win,” said Del Norte head coach Ray Rook. “It kind of had the same feel as last year when we went to Justin-Siena. You just don’t know how the kids are going to react to the playoff game and the atmosphere, but everything was business as usual. On the first play of the game I could see the kids came to play.”
