The last time Joel Heller was in Crescent City teaching pickleball, it was in a driveway with six women as students. On Saturday Keller spent the morning teaching two groups of students (about 27 total) on five courts at the fairgrounds.

“This group is huge. Two years ago there was no group here. Now we filled up two groups,” Heller said. “Once (pickleball) gets a little publicity it usually takes off.”

Warrior Memories: Mattz name synonymous with baseball

Any time I hear the name Mattz, I think baseball. Those who played here during my generation immediately think of Ray Mattz. 

Ray is remembered by many as one of the greatest Warrior fans ever, but he was also a great Warrior athlete. Ray was able to pass his talents on to two great sons, Kenny Mattz and Donnie Mattz. I have the pleasure of  seeing Donnie regularly as you cannot attend a Warrior athletic event  without running into him.

Rarely has Del Norte had more perfect weather for a track and field meet.

Temperatures set a new record in Crescent City, reaching 78 degrees, and with no wind athletes from around the Humboldt-Del Norte improved their marks at the Warriors’ only regular season home meet of the season.

One of the most positively affected events was the pole vault, which is naturally partial to warmer weather.

Popularity of pickleball on the rise in DN

Barbara Olesen was the first of Del Norte’s quickly growing contingent of pickleball enthusiasts to be exposed to the sport.

With a court nearby Olesen’s summer retreat in Arizona, the constant bouncing of whiffle balls and thwack of the racquet was hard to ignore.
