Reel Deal: River salmon pick up as bottomfishing nears close

As a landlocked child growing up in Iowa, fishing on the ocean was never a realistic possibility. Although local fishing guides have been great about keeping me apprised of conditions and providing me with information for my column, after writing about ocean anglers all summer long I decided it was high time to try my own luck before the banner bottomfishing season comes to a close at the end of the month. Capt. Jim Mitchell of Gotcha Hooked Fish Trips was happy to show me the ropes on Monday.

It was my first time being on a boat in the ocean, and I somehow forgot that seasickness was a real thing. Unfortunately, that didn’t keep me from getting it.

Warrior Memories: HSU vs. SFS was a virtual Warrior reunion in 1961

When the Humboldt State Lumberjacks and the San Francisco State Gators met in the Redwood Bowl in  Arcata in 1961, it must have felt like an old Warrior scrimmage as there were four former Warriors on the field for both the Jacks and the  Gators.

Drew Roberts, Danny Sousa, Matt Kelley and Frank Sperry wore the green and gold of the Jacks while Charlie Matthews, Owen Westbrook, Larry Baker and Bob Suter were wearing the visiting colors of the Gators. All of these are names that old Warrior fans will remember well.

Makela wins HDN singles tennis title

All six of the Del Norte girls who made the trip to Eureka for the Humboldt-Del Norte girls tennis championships on Saturday picked up at least one win, but the highlight for the Warriors was No. 1 singles player, junior Raili Makela, rolling through the top bracket to earn a White Star and Del Norte’s first HDN singles championship since Kathryn Gustafson won the title in 2011.

“It was so much fun,” Makela said. “I really have loved playing tennis since I started in fifth grade. I feel like I worked really hard for this, but at the same time it could have been anybody’s game. All the girls were really, really talented. I personally thought that the game I played in the finals was the best game that I played all season. I think my opponent was playing well also, but I was on that day. I could feel it.”

The Del Norte girls soccer team started its home game against South Fork with just one substitution due to various schedule conflicts and injuries, and by beginning of the second half the Warriors had just enough players to field a full 11-person team as Del Norte fell 8-1 to the Cubs Saturday.

Despite the low numbers, Del Norte tried playing a more aggressive style of soccer than they have shown throughout the season.

Fitzhugh shoots 95 at NCS golf tourney

The Del Norte girls golf season officially wrapped up on Monday at the North Coast Section Division II Championships at the Windsor Golf Club. The Warriors’ top golfer, Siera Fitzhugh, shot a score of 95 to finish in the top 20 out of 74 golfers, but she finished outside the top nine, who qualified to move on to the NCS Division I Tournament of Champions.

The day started off in a heavy fog. Del Norte coach Allison Eckart said visibility was about 50 yards when the tournament kicked off at 8 a.m. The Windsor Golf Club also provided some unique challenges for Fitzhugh and the rest of the golfers from the Humboldt-Del Norte league.

The Del Norte volleyball team took care of business at home on Thursday against Fortuna, sweeping the Huskies 3-0 (25-8, 25-21, 25-17) to stay within striking distance of Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 League leader Arcata, giving tthe Warriors a chance to move into a tie for first when they play the Tigers Tuesday.

“It was a quicker game than the last couple have been,” said Del Norte head coach Debbie Lorenzi. “Our passing was really good, and when our passing is good our hitting is going to be more efficient.”

DN football pushing through the bye

After a rough start to the season, the Del Norte football team heads into its bye week with a little bit of momentum after winning back-to-back games for the first time this season to improve to 4-4 overall and 3-1 in the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5.

The Warriors’ non-league schedule was stacked with tough competition as Del Norte struggled to a 1-3 start. Including the team’s loss to Fortuna in league play, the four teams that have beaten Del Norte were a combined 27-2 before Friday’s games. Of those teams, only Cardinal Newman has lost this season, though the Cardinals are currently the highest rated team Del Norte has faced, according to Maxpreps.com.

Pair of DN alums enter CR Hall of Fame

On Saturday, 40 years after winning a California Junior College State Championship, Del Norte High School graduates Ron Otremba and Russ Olson were inducted into the College of the Redwoods Hall of Fame along with the rest of the 1975 football team.

“The whole thing was really neat,” said Otremba, a cornerback and wedge breaker on the kickoff team. “A lot of the guys showed up and two of the coaches were there. We had a big dinner and the new athletic director gave a speech about the team.”

The current College of the Redwood team completed the weekend with a 33-26 victory over San Jose City College to improve to 2-4 overall.
