A streak of 21 straight league titles is an almost unheard-of accomplishment for a sports team at any level.

But that’s what the Del Norte High varsity volleyball squad did Tuesday, earning its 21st consecutive Big 5 Conference title by downing McKinleyville on the road to finish 7-1 in conference play and 16-10 overall.

If they had lost, the Warriors would have shared the title with Eureka and it would have been the first time in several years they had not won the Big 5 outright.

Win in 4 games in VB regular season finale

 Another regular season has come to an end with the Warriors still  on the mountaintop despite repeated attempts by the other teams to push them off.

The Del Norte High varsity volleyball team won its 21st straight Big 5 Conference title with a 25-23, 25-22, 22-25, 25-20 win on the road against the McKinleyville Panthers Tuesday night, winning the Big 5 crown outright.

To be the squad the other conference teams are gunning for year after year after year and always being able to reload is something the Warriors have perfected to a science.

Despite returning only two starters from last season and a total of four seniors and losing one of their best players in Katie Rinkevicz midseason due to a knee injury, Del Norte put aside the naysayers and just went out and played as a team

“I’m really happy for the girls,” Warrior co-coach Pablo Lorenzi said. “The girls did what they needed to do to win the title. It just proves if you work hard and work together you will get the result that you want.”

This was a true team effort as several Warriors had excellent games.

This included senior Kristen DeBacker, who led the team with 25 kills. Senior Paula Rhodes had a great all-around game with 12 kills, 12 digs, two aces and 25 assists.

Crescent City man achieves rare 7-10 bowling split at Tsunami Lanes

Local bowler Al Young has pulled off a rare feat in bowling circles — converting a 7-10 split.

The split occurs when all that is remaining for a bowler to hit is  the leftmost and the rightmost pin in the back row and is able to knock them down with a single ball to achieve a spare.

Young, 77, was able to make the 7-10 split Friday night at the Tsunami Lanes bowling alley.

“I don’t really know what all the excitement about the 7-10 split is except that you don’t see it very often,” Young said. The 7-10 split occurs less frequently than bowling a 300 game. Young was playing in the Friday MatchUps League as a member of the ‘Whatever’ squad when the split occurred.

Young, who considers himself an average bowler that normally bowls in the 130 to 200 range, said he was quite calm when the chance presented itself to make the split and told himself that he was going to make it and to be positive.

Young recalled that he hit the  seven pin “just right” and it struck the 10 pin, which started to lean. “Everyone was looking and it just fell over,” he said. “It was amazing.”
