Still more than 2,000 adult chinook that can be caught on the Klamath
Chinook salmon continue to pour into the Klamath River, and there are still more than 2,000 adult salmon that can be caught by sport anglers under this year’s quota.
The Chetco “bubble” fishery” that allows fishing within three miles of the Chetco River mouth is producing about one fish per boat and ends Sunday.
Every time I attend a Warrior home football game I can’t help but think back to my junior year of football in 1949. I was playing for fi rst year coach Chuck DeAutremont. Chuck has always remained my favorite coach to play for.
The other thing that made this season so special was that Chuck had hired an outstanding assistant coach by the name of Mike Whalen.
Mike had been an outstanding athlete at Humboldt State playing both football and baseball. In my senior year Mike took over as head baseball coach and led us to out third straight league championship.
The 1949 year was the start of a 30-year career serving the Warrior youth as a coach, teacher, and school administrator. When Charles Thunen resigned as principal at the high school, Mike took over the job.
Del Norte athletics will be active on the road this weekend with four teams traveling on Saturday.
The Del Norte football team will play a rare Saturday league game against Arcata in McKinleyville. The junior varsity game will kick things off at 11:30 a.m. with the varsity game following at about 2 p.m. Those unwilling or unable to travel to the game can listen to the action on the radio at 97.9 KPOD or online at delnortesports.com.
The girls tennis team will also play the Tigers Saturday, starting at 10 a.m. in Arcata.
Both the boys and girls soccer teams will be in action this Saturday as well. The Warriors will travel to Ferndale where the boys teams are scheduled to kick off at 11 a.m. The girls game will follow at about 1 p.m.
The Del Norte girls golf team was down a few members on Thursday due to various conflicts, but the Warriors took both veteran members — seniors Siera Fitzhugh and Gina Danna — to the Eureka Municipal Golf Course for the fifth Humboldt-Del Norte league meet of the season.
Del Norte’s top golfer Siera Fitzhugh shot a season low score of 83 to reach her year-long goal of breaking into the 80s.
Arcata stays unbeaten in the HDN with 3-1 victory over Del Norte on Thursday
Thursday’s meeting between the two teams that have shared the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league championship each of the last two years lived up to the billing.
Arcata edged out Del Norte 3-1 (25-18, 24-26, 25-12, 25-19) to improve to 3-0, grabbing an early advantage in the race to repeat as league champions over the Warriors, who fall to 2-1 in the HDN.
“The rallies were long. It was dig after dig and hit after hit. It was really good volleyball,” said Del Norte head coach Debbie Lorenzi. “The rallies were going back and forth about eight times, and they weren’t free balls either, they were hits. I was proud of the girls, and I think they realized that we can hang with them, and we are going to go home and work harder to try to get them next time.”

Although the Warriors won the meet handily, Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar didn’t see the same level of play from his girls as in the previous match when they took down then-undefeated McKinleyville.

The Tigers grabbed the lead seven minutes into the game and led 4-0 just 10 minutes later. Arcata added a pair of goals late in the first half to take a 6-0 advantage into the break. The Warriors added an extra defender to its lineup, switching from a 4-4-2 lineup to a 5-3-1 for the second half, and Del Norte held the Tigers in check through the final 40 minutes to keep the final score 6-0.
The Arcata boys soccer team dictated the tempo and the run of play for most of its game in Del Norte on Wednesday and came away with a 3-0 victory over the Warriors.

“We played one of the top teams in the league today,” said Del Norte head coach David Sanyaolu. “What let us down today is our passes were not accurate, our ball control wasn’t very good and we are just working too hard. We are just running about the field. That is something that I harp on a lot.”
The Del Norte football team is trading in the Friday night lights for a Saturday afternoon tilt with Arcata this week at a neutral site game played at McKinleyville High School. Kickoff is scheduled for 2 p.m.
Although the Saturday Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 matchup strays from the regular schedule, Nova is excited for the opportunity.
“You change a few things when you play on Saturday,” he said. “What I like about it is there are times in the playoffs where we might have to play on Saturday, so it gives us an opportunity to get ready for that. We have already played in Eugene on a Saturday, so we are used to it.”
