Pacific Swim officials from across the state came to volunteer their time and expertise in officiating the event. 

“It was really fun and I loved how I got to swim a lot,” said first time meet swimmer Shelby Dooley, 11. “I’ll probably do it again.”

Shelby’s mother, Suzie Dooley, was “very impressed with the positive attitude of all the children and families”

Del Norte Youth Wrestling


Unique car race for local

In the 30-plus years local race car driver Howard Ford has taken part in the sport, he had never been disqualified.

That changed last weekend.

Ford, who has won the North State Challenge Racing Series for two straight years, was disqualified near the end of a race in Roseburg, Ore., on Sat­urday.

In the local portion of the race card at the NASCAR Toyota Bi-Mart-150, Ford started out well the day before by posting the fastest qualifying time, he said.

An excellent season was rewarded, with five White Star accolades for the Del Norte High softball team.

This included junior catcher Lauryn Lesina being named Most Valuable Player of the Big 4 Conference.

Lesina was a major contributor for a team that won its third straight conference title with a 11-1 Big 4 mark and came within one game of making a North Coast Section championship contest for the second consecutive year. The Warriors won the NCS Redwood Empire Class 2A title last season.

Lesina led the team with an .477 batting average and also led the squad with four home runs, 24 RBIs and 26 runs.

“She was dominant,” Warrior head coach Jackie Heuberger said.

It was a perfect start for the Del Norte Grizzlies American Legion baseball team this past weekend.

The Grizzlies opened up their season with two doubleheader home wins on Saturday and Sunday to begin the year at 4-0.

“It feels really good to start this way,” head coach Eric Enos said, saying it was the first time in four years of coaching the team that they had gone 4-0 to start the year. “We still have work to do, although it’s a good start.”

He added that he was fairly pleased with his team’s pitching, which included two complete game efforts on Saturday.

Enos said the key to earning these early season wins was the fact that his squad was aggressive and capitalized on their opponents’ mistakes despite being inconsistent in the hits department.

Face Northern Humboldt at home starting at 2 p.m. in doubleheader action

Head coach Eric Enos has high hopes for summer success for the Del Norte Grizzlies American Legion baseball team.

The squad returns several veterans as well as a few promising newcomers, which Enos hopes bodes well for the new season, which begins at home today.

“I feel good about our progress,” he said. “I’m excited about this team.”

A strong suit, Enos said, will be with the pitching. Around 10 out of the 14 team members  have the ability to pitch for the Grizzlies. This includes several players Enos is looking at for  the No. 1 pitchers spot.

As a coach, he said it’s quite nice to have such a deep pitching staff to turn to.

“It’s a luxury to have so many pitchers,” he said.
