Del Norte sweeps B-H Rotary Invitational

The Del Norte track and field team performed better than the competition at the Brookings Harbor Rotary Invitational on Saturday with both the boys and girls teams taking first place overall with 128.5 and 144 points respectively. Although the Warriors ran fast enough to win the meet, head coach Samuel Escobar said they were still a touch slower than they were before spring break.

“Part of it can be attributed to a lull in their training this past week,” Escobar said. “The weather also wasn’t very conducive to PRs because it was raining for most of the meet.”

The rains over last weekend and early in the week have boosted flows and color on the Smith River, allowing anglers another good chance to land some steelhead. Meanwhile, ocean fishing in Brookings picked back up this week to allow recreational fishermen several local options.

Smith River

The Smith River saw a steep increase in flows early in the week. Measured at 7.5 feet at Jedediah Smith State Park Monday afternoon, the river jumped as high as 10.06 by Tuesday morning.

Warrior Memories: Templeton’s big bat wowed DN, Merchant fans

When I look back at baseball in Crescent City the name Lee Templeton always comes to mind. Lee and his family moved to Del Norte in 1949, just in time for Lee to start his freshman year as a Warrior. Lee was big as a freshman, standing about 6-foot-4 and weighing 200 pounds. He showed right away that size was placed in a very athletic body.

Since Lee was 15 as a freshman, he was allowed to play varsity football and he played it well all four years. When football ended he took to the basketball courts, where he again proved to be an outstanding player. During his high school career he made the All-Humboldt-Del Norte League team in all three sports — football, basketball and baseball.

Del Norte boys golf competes in Arcata for fifth league meet

The Del Norte boys golf team was back in action on Thursday after over a week off for spring break.

The Warriors’ top golfer, Kobie Lockwood, came in second individually with a score of 81. It was the first second-place finish for Lockwood this season after shooting the lowest score at each of the first four Humboldt-Del Norte golf meets. 

Cameron Schultz shot 92; Ben Slayton shot a 96 and Taylor Westbrook shot a 104 for the Warriors. Del Norte will be back in action on Monday at the Del Norte Golf Course. The meet begins at 11 a.m.

Del Norte tennis makes return to court Wednesday with 8-1 loss to Eureka

The Del Norte boys tennis team was back in action Wednesday after more than a week away from competition. The Warriors fell 8-1, including two forfiets, to Eureka in the first meeting of the season between the two teams.

“This is the first time that we have played Eureka,” said Del Norte head coach Jim Holt. “They are a well coached team, and they have some good players.”

JV pulls together throughout year

Young softball players turn talented group into strong team this season 

The junior varsity softball team faced its share of challenges this season, including a roster of about 14 girls thinning to just nine by the end of the season, but Del Norte JV head coach Alyssa Bergquist was proud of how her girls performed this year.

“I think the season went really well,” Bergquist said. “We haven’t had a strong JV team for a while; last year we didn’t win any games. This year we had high hopes for the girls coming in and they really stepped it up.”

King of Clubs: Masters carry on tradition in golf

“If the Masters offered no money at all, I would be here trying just as hard.”

— Ben Hogan, Masters Tournament Champion in 1951 and 1953

Today is the first round of the 79th Masters Golf Tournament held each year at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga. The Masters tournament was created by the late and great American golfer Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts, the 1931 Chairman of Augusta National GC, back in 1934, and is consider by most as the greatest golf tournament and by some as one of if not the best sporting events in the world. 

Boy throwers PR at Bowerman Relays

Del Norte boys take fourth, girls third in small school division in Medford 

Although the Del Norte track and field team was shorthanded due to spring break activities last week, the Warriors were pleased with the performances of the 24 athletes that made the trip to Medford for the Bowerman Relays on Saturday.

The Bowerman Relays provided the biggest track meet of the season so far for the Warriors with 17 total teams in attendance. The meet was split into a large school division and a small school division with Del Norte falling into the small school category. The boys finished fourth in the small division and ninth overall despite competing in just seven of the 15 events and the Warriors girls took third in the small school competition and eighth overall while competing in 10 of 15 events.

Fishing on the river picked back up this week just in time to provide anglers a place to fish while escaping the swells on the ocean in Brookings that kept most sport fishing vessels in the harbor throughout the week.

Smith River

With the Smith River rising to fishable levels this week, anglers were able to get at the steelhead that are still in the system.

Mick Thomas of Lunker Fish Trips said he took a guided trip out onto the Smith on Thursday and hooked six fish, catching three of them.

“There are still some fish out there — a few fresh ones, but most of them were downers. That is a good thing,” Thomas said.

Warrior Memories: ‘52 graduate Ray added exquisite flavor to Warriors

One of the things that I really enjoy about doing these columns is looking back at and talking to former Warrior teammates. One of those that present Del Norters will recognize is 1952 graduate Ray Young.

Ray owned and operated Glen’s Bakery for many years until his retirement. Ray moved to Crescent City in 1947 and his parents opened Glen’s Bakery, which was in the area of the S curve at that time. This business was  completely destroyed by the 1964 tsunami. The new Glen’s Bakery was completed at its present location that same year.
