Del Norte falls 3-0 to Miramonte’s size, experience in first round of North Coast Section playoffs

The size disparity was nothing new. Del Norte volleyball has been smaller than nearly every opponent it has played this year, yet still managed to win 23 games. But Miramonte combined its size with experience, not just in high school but at the club level, that the Warriors just couldn’t match.

No. 11-seeded Del Norte fell 3-0 (25-14, 25-15, 25-18) to the sixth-seeded Matadors in Thunen Gym on Thursday in the first round of the North Coast Section Division III playoffs.

“Playing at home in the playoffs is a big deal because we worked so hard, both the kids and the coaches, to accomplish that,” said head coach Ray Rook. “All the hard work that the players and the coaches do in the offseason is paying off.”

JV football wraps up unblemished season

A turnover early in the Del Norte junior varsity football team’s season finale helped Arcata jump out to a 7-6 lead, but true to form, the Warriors never panicked.

“The kids just went out and did what they do; they never got rattled all year,” said Del Norte JV coach Danny Forkner. “That is the great part of this team.”

Del Norte showed that same determination on Friday as it scored the game’s final 40 points to run away with a 46-7 victory to complete the team’s perfect season at 10-0.

North Coast Dungeness crabs are looking plump, with tasty sweet meat, according to sport crabbers.

Although official crab meat-to-weight ratios used to set the opening date for the North Coast’s commercial Dungeness crab season have not yet been completed this year, the word from recreational crab fishermen is that the crustaceans are looking ready for a Dec. 1 commercial opener — all the more reason for sport crabbers to get some while the getting’s good before the commercial fleet scoops up the bulk of ocean spiders.

JV volleyball improves all season

The Del Norte junior varsity volleyball team struggled to win games this season, finishing with a 1-7 mark in Humbolt-Del Norte league play, but the Warriors are proud of the progress that the girls showed throughout the year.

“It was a great year,” said head coach Deja Wakefield, who took over in October for Megan Curtis. “It was a really good learning experience for them. We had games that we walked away from thinking that we could have played better, but in the next game we took what we learned in practice and improved. We didn’t win every game, but I think they sure learned a lot, which is really important at the JV level.”
