DN cross country runs in Arcata meet

The Del Norte boys and girls cross country team was back in action on Wednesday with a meet in Arcata. The Warriors’ lone girl, Karlie Scott, turned in one of her fastest times of the season — 22:11 — to take 12th place overall.

“She ran an outstanding race, I thought,” said Del Norte assistant coach George Hartman. “22:11 is outstanding on that course. If you compare the courses, this is her best time of the year.”

Warriors boys soccer battles to a 2-2 draw

The Del Norte boys soccer team fell behind Eureka twice on Saturday, but both times the Warriors battled back to a tie for a 2-2 draw in Eureka — the second draw of the season between the Warriors and Loggers.

New look Warrior volleyball at Coos Bay tourney

Although the faces on the Del Norte volleyball team remained the same over the weekend, the Warriors mixed up a few positions over the weekend in Coos Bay, playing at the Marshfield Tournament.

Del Norte finished the tournament with a 0-1-2 record in pool play in a two-set maximum format. In both of the Warriors ties, Del Norte lost a nailbiting set that went into overtime with final scores of 28-26 and 28-27. In the consolation bracket, the Warriors won their first game before falling to Coquille to end Del Norte’s tournament.

Shorthanded girls soccer falls 9-0 to Loggers on the road

The Del Norte girls soccer team was missing several players for various reasons on Saturday, and the shorthanded Warriors struggled to keep up with Eureka, falling 9-0 on the road.

“We were down to 12 players,” said Del Norte head coach Clar Byers. “They gave it their best, had fun and got a little bit wet. I am happy with the girls. Some players who have not played got a lot of playing time.”

The Del Norte girls will be back in action on Wednesday, hosting St. Bernard’s. The Crusaders do not have a boys soccer team, so the girls will take the field at 3:30 p.m. for the only game of the day.

Warrior Memories: Cheerleaders officially competitive athletes now

As I was reading the article in the newspaper about the governor signing a bill that officially made competitive cheerleading an official interscholastic sport, my mind went back to what it used to be.


When I was a Warrior, each year the student body would elect three cheerleaders. These were usually girls with good leadership qualities and a lot of school spirit. Their job was to promote good sportsmanship and lots of enthusiasm at pep rallies and at Warrior contests.

McKinleyville retook the lead in the ninth minute and added another in the 18th to round out the first-half scoring. The Panthers added one more goal in the 64th minute for the 4-1 win.

Football: Special Warrior special teams

The Del Norte football team jumped ahead early and coasted to a 41-21 victory in McKinleyville for the Warriors’ second straight win.

The Warrior offense started the game off with a nine-play, 65-yard drive ending in a 15-yard pass from quarterback Austin Healy to Lucas Murphy in the end zone.

The defense did its part with two straight tackles behind the line of scrimmage in its first appearance. After Del Norte’s defense held on 3rd down, the Panthers were forced to punt, and the Del Norte special teams took over from there.

Fishing on the Smith River, though confined to the main stem between the mouth and Rowdy Creek, has been picking up this week. Meanwhile the lower Klamath River still has plenty of fish available before it hits its quota, and fresh fish are still reportedly moving into the river.


Smith River

Due to the lack of rainfall, anglers on the Smith River must stay between the mouth of the Smith and Rowdy Creek, but that has been fine for early season fishermen.
