King of Clubs: Just go with it

“It is nevertheless a game of considerable passion, either of the explosive type, or that of which burns inwardly and seats the soul.”

— Bobby Jones

 

Bobby Jones understood what the game does to the human physique. One could only imagine that he knew that golf is played at its best when one is able to have control over an outburst or an in-burst of self-criticism. 

But I wouldn’t venture too far to say that Mr. Jones has perhaps found himself in a conundrum as a result from a rare, uncharacteristic and unconscious hurling of a club down a fairway as  a reaction to a bad shot. 


Teen League hoops signups underway

Seniors lead second-half push against Crusaders 

The seniors on the Del Norte girls basketball team stole the show, especially in the second half, as the Warriors pulled away for a 60-52 victory over St. Bernard’s on Senior Night in Thunen Gym.

The senior trio of Grace Bruschi, Jordan Babich and Shelby Bomke was recognized before the game and all three got the start against the Crusaders in Del Norte’s final home game of the season. 

“There were some tears before the game, but I know they were fired up to play. I think the Senior Night atmosphere gave them a little bit more energy,” said Del Norte head coach Jeff Cook.

Del Norte rolls to 53-35 victory over Eureka on homecoming night, stays alone in third place 

The homecoming crowd seems to have shaken the Del Norte boys basketball team out of its slump.

The Warriors, who had lost two straight games on the road heading into Friday night’s matchup, bounced back with an emphatic 53-35 victory over Eureka in Thunen Gym.

“I thought the kids played extremely hard,” said Del Norte head coach Blaine Lopez. “We didn’t play great; we didn’t shoot the ball very well, but I thought we played really hard. The effort was there, and we have kind of lacked that a little bit lately. So I was proud of them for getting back to that.”


Warrior wrestlers take sixth in Ukiah

Del Norte places 7 of 10 grapplers in final regular season tournament 

The Del Norte wrestling team is starting to regain its health, and on Saturday it had seven of its 10 varsity wrestlers finish in the top eight of their respective brackets as the Warriors took sixth place out of 27 teams in attendence.

“We did alright,” said Del Norte assistant coach Clinton Schaad. “At this point in the year we are looking more at individual matches than at the total team score. We are glad we finished in the top six overall, but we could have done better; you can always do better.”

While nearly every Warrior in the bracket wrestled well at times on Saturday, Schaad said he thought that pretty much everybody had one match over the weekend that they wish they could have back.


Warrior Memories: Bud Pyke provided some of my first Warrior Memories

As someone who was a Warrior fan even before I became a Warrior player, it is fun to look back at the Warriors I was watching while I was still at Crescent Elk. One of these that really became one of my heroes was Bud Pyke.
