Fitzhugh, Warriors take 3rd at first meet

The Del Norte girls golf team saw its first competition of the season on Friday at Benbow Golf Course in the first Humboldt-Del Norte league meet of the season.

The Warriors met up with Eureka, Arcata, Fortuna, McKinleyville and St. Bernard’s in Benbow. It was the first look at the team’s competition for the season, and Del Norte head coach Alison Eckart said the league should be fairly even this year.

The Del Norte football team turned on the jets in the second half of its season opener agaisnt Piner on Saturday and turned what was a tightly contested game into a comfortable 33-18 victory at Whalen Field.

Del Norte head coach Ray Rook thought the Prospectors would provide a stiff challenge for the Warriors in their first game of the season and he was not disapointed.

“I want to thank Piner for coming up here,” Rook said. “They have a great team and they are going to do well this year. They play hard.”

Warriors win three of four for third place in Yreka

The Del Norte volleyball team saw plenty to be encouraged about and a few things that need work as it opened the season at a tournament in Yreka with a third place finish.

The Warriors swept through pool play, beating Trinity and Mt. Shasta to grab the top seed. In the first round of bracket play, however, the Warriors fell to Yreka.

Del Norte bounced back to get another win over Mt. Shasta in the third-place game.

Sirens close gap, fall 180-159 to Brawlers

Victory slipped out of the Tsunami Sirens’ grasp in the closing minutes of their final home roller derby bout of the season on Saturday at the Fairgrounds, but the 180-159 loss to the Boneyard Brawlers was a big improvement over the 129-point loss to the Cherry City Derby Girls in Salem, Ore., early in the season. 

“The last time we played this team we lost by over 100 — this was way better,” said Jenn “JennZilla” Longrie. “Losing was still a bummer, though, because we were ahead for about 80 percent of the match.”

Anybody who has played golf for some extended period of time is all too familiar with this word. It is probably the only suitable four-letter word that has a place on the golf course, but, I am sure others would disagree with me. 

The word is “FORE!!!”
