It is fun to look back at Warrior sports when I started at Del Norte during the 1947-48 school year.
Warrior sports were still making a comeback after being greatly reduced during World War II. Eleven-man football was in its third year under the third straight different coach. Talmud Kramer replaced Phil Crawford, who had replaced Clarance Kramer, so each year was different.

The annual Brookings-Harbor Rotary track and field meet on Saturday was a little bit smaller than usual, with just four teams in attendance. As Del Norte has done for most of the season, the boys and girls track and field teams both left the meet with first place finishes.
“The unfortunate thing is it was small,” Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar said. “In the past they have had 11 teams but this year, for a number of reasons, there were just four teams.”
