DN football hosts Fortuna on Friday

The Del Norte High football team plays host to Fortuna High School on Friday, with the varsity game starting at 7:30 p.m. after the JV game that starts at 5.

After losing at Eureka last Friday, the Warriors are tied with Fortuna for second place in the Big 5 Humboldt-Del Norte League. Both teams have 1-1 league records.

Overall, the Warriors are 1-3 for the season, while Fortuna is 3-1.

Last week Fortuna won at home over Ferndale, 19-6. On Sept. 7, Fortuna lost to Eureka, 30-20.


‘Pretty good’ at first meet

The Del Norte High girls and boys cross-country teams opened their season Wednesday with a league meet in Fortuna.

The girls team officially placed third and the boys team unofficially placed fourth, said coach Kirk Burrows.

“For the first meet of the season we did pretty good,” Burrows said.


Reel Deal: Klamath catch slows down while river mouth shifts

Recent rains on the North Coast gave some anglers high hopes that a big push of salmon would follow, but it’s still too early for most coastal watersheds and a major change in the configuration at the mouth of the Klamath River has made fishing “slow, slow, slow,” according to guide Steve Huber.

Lower Klamath River

Rainfall and high tides over the past week caused the mouth of the Klamath River to shift from a long, narrow outlet emptying on the southern side to a wider slot emptying a few hundred feet farther north.

The salmon harvest at the mouth of the Klamath dropped significantly last week, but more fish should be on the way.  Only 121 salmon were harvested from Sept. 17 to Sept. 23 — a sharp drop from the 1,278 harvested the week before.

“I anticipate more fish moving into the river as the mouth opens up again,” said Sara Borok, California Department of Fish and Wildlife scientist for the Klamath River Project. Borok said the mouth is fishable again, but anglers should watch out for sneaker waves.

Football game to be televised on Ch. 4

The Del Norte High football team’s game against Eureka last Friday will be shown Wednesday through Oct. 1 on cable TV.

The game will be shown at 7:30 p.m. nightly on Charter Channel 4.


Girls soccer shuts out Eagle Point

Del Norte High’s girls soccer team was apparently happy to be playing on a dry field Monday afternoon.

After losing 1-0 on a field full of standing water Saturday at South Fork, the Warriors came home and blanked Eagle Point 3-0.

“The girls were on today,” said coach Clar Byers. “The passing was good. We were talking to each other. We played like a team should play.”

After a scoreless first half, the Warriors got a goal from Silvia Cajita about two minutes into the second half, then another by Christina Levy. Paige Pingree assisted on both goals.

Del Norte’s third goal came off a corner kick by Sabrina Gonzalez. Deleana Saylor kicked it home with an assist by Guadalupe Gonzalez.


Volleyball team in top 5 at tourney

Del Norte High’s volleyball team won five of seven matches Friday and Saturday at a tournament that at times resembled an endurance test.

“We did some good things, but we still have stuff to work on,” said coach Pablo Lorenzi. The Warriors sometimes were playing matches every hour, he said, and ultimately finished in the top five out of 25 teams.

On Friday, Del Norte defeated Pierce High of Arbuckle, 25-22, 25-21, then topped Trinity of Weaverville, 25-22, 25-16. The Warriors lost to Enterprise of Redding, 8-25, 9-25.


From Del Norte to Down Under

Del Norte High graduate Propupek signs contract to play baseball in Australia 

After playing four years of college baseball and summer wood-bat baseball with the Humboldt Crabs, Del Norte High graduate Chris Prokupek is ready to take his game to a whole new continent.

Prokupek, who played at NCAA Division II New Mexico Highlands University, has signed a contract to play for the Sunshine Eagles baseball club of Sunshine, Victoria, Australia.

Sunshine, located in a suburb of Melbourne, is a minor-league affiliate of the Melbourne Aces of the Australian Baseball League, the nation’s professional baseball league.

“I got connected (to the Eagles) by their general manager,” Prokupek told the Triplicate. “I was just hanging around watching some TV and he sent me an e-mail.

“I didn’t really believe it at first, but my NMHU coach gave him my information and that’s how it started.”

Tsunami Sirens in final home bout today

Del Norte will get a final taste of roller derby mayhem today as the North Coast Tsunami Sirens compete in the last home bout of the season.

The Sirens will take on Flood Water Roller Derby of Rocklin, Calif. at 6:30 p.m. today at the Del Norte County Fairgrounds. Tickets cost $15 and may be purchased at the door; doors open to spectators at 5:30 p.m. A portion of the ticket proceeds will be donated to the Del Norte High dance program, said Siren Adrianna “Full Metal Jackie” Stefko.

Tonight’s bout is the culmination of a roller-coaster season with losses to Red Bluff’s Derby Girls in May and to Humboldt Roller Derby in an overtime thriller, and a victorious rematch against Red Bluff. 

The Sirens started the season in February with a roster made up of about half veteran skaters and the rest newbies, Stefko said. Last year, pregnancies and injuries on and off the track took a handful of skaters out of the game, she said. This year, pregnancies took two players out of the game, Stefko said.

“It’s strange, just when we get really strong we drop off a little bit,” she said. “I think we’re always trying to grow and trying to figure out where we sit in as far as ranking (goes).”

Many teams, such as Humboldt Roller Derby, are affiliated with the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, Stefko said. She said she doesn’t think the Sirens have enough consistent skaters to pursue a national ranking.
