Warrior softball dominates Gold Beach 11-1

The Del Norte softball team got one in the win column in its second outing of the season with an 11-1 victory over Gold Beach in a five inning game shortened by the mercy rule.

Early errors derailed the Warriors in their first game of the season against Crater on Tuesday. Once again the Del Norte defense was a little shaky coming out of the gate, committing two errors that led to an unearned run, but the Warriors defense rebounded to play error-free softball the rest of the way. 

Boys golf takes 2nd place at Beau Pre

The Del Norte boys golf team continued its strong start to the 2016 season with a second-place team finish at Beau Pre Golf Course in McKinleyville on Thursday.

The Warriors finished 13 strokes behind the home team, McKinleyville, in the team standings but Del Norte maintained its place atop the season standings with an 11-stroke cushion over the Panthers.

Tennis tops McKinleyville for first win of season

The Del Norte boys tennis team could have relied on its superior numbers to beat McKinleyville for its first meet win of the season on Saturday. The Panthers have just two players and therefore were forced to forfeit the No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 singles matches as well as the No. 2 doubles match.

The forfeits alone assured the Warriors of their first team win of the season, but Del Norte also won its first matches of the season with sophomores Rickesh Khilnani and Rylee Weaver winning the No. 1 and No. 2 singles matches, respectively.

Warrior Memories: Teammates made the 1950 baseball season my favorite Warrior memory

I was once asked what was my favorite season as a Warrior. I have never had a hard time answering.

While football may be my all-time favorite sport, baseball was always a close second. My answer to that question will always be the 1950 baseball season.

It was a great year. We went undefeated to win our second league championship in a row. What made it really memorable was that the teammates I had on that team were so special. One of those was senior Louie Fowler.

Warrior youth wrestling kicks off in Eureka

The Del Norte Youth Wrestling program kicked off its season on Saturday in Eureka. Of the record 93 kids that signed up for the 2016 season, 57 made the trip south. Last year just 42 kids signed up for the squad.

The Warriors came home  from Eureka with 13 first-place finishes and 14 runners up in a successful first weekend.

Warriors sweep Icebreaker

The Del Norte track and field team kicked off its season at the Brookings-Harbor Icebreaker on Tuesday and once again proved to be the top program at the small meet.

Competing against Brookings-Harbor, Pacific, Mrytle Point and Gold Beach (the girls field also included Castle Rock), the Warriors rolled to an 80-point win in the boys standings with 190 team points. The girls dominated as well with 231 team points for a 109-point cushion over second place.

Slow start for Warrior softball in opener

The Del Norte softball team looked rattled in the first two innings of the season.

The Warriors committed five errors and issued four walks in two innings in the team’s first game of the year, against Crater (Oregon) in Crescent City,  digging itself into an 11-0 hole.

“Overall it was a rough start, but it was really good experience for these guys,” said Del Norte head coach Pablo Lorenzi. “All of their kids play club softball. I think we are going to be fine. As long as we are disciplined, willing to hustle and willing to learn we will get there.”

Boys tennis falls 9-0 in Ferndale

The Del Norte boys tennis team had a rough meet in Ferndale on Tuesday, falling 9-0 on to the Wildcats. including a pair of forfeits.

The Warriors lost their top player and only returner for last season — Cameron Douglas — due to schedule conflicts this week, trimming the team’s roster down to five players.

“We lost 9-0, but we had a lot of close matches. Ricky played a really good game at No. 1 singles,” said Del Norte head coach Jim Holt. “We are down to five players, so we had to forfeit a singles match and a doubles match. Everybody got some good experience though. It is still just our second match of the season.”

Del Norte golf takes first at Willow Creek

With three-time defending Humboldt-Del Norte individual champion Kobie Lockwood on the team, Del Norte is used to having the lowest individual score at the end of an HDN meet. On Thursday, however, the Warriors recorded the lowest team score of the day.

All five Warrior boys trimmed their scores significantly from the first meet at Redwood Empire Golf and Country Club to the second at Willow Creek Golf Course.

Wet weekend washes out prep sports

It has been a poor spring for practicing sports outdoors in Del Norte County, and Warrior teams haven’t had much luck getting games in either.

The boys tennis team has the busiest schedule in late February and early March, so not surprisingly, it has been the hardest hit by the rain. The Warriors’ season opener against McKinleyville was forfeited due to the Panthers’ lack of athletes, so Del Norte kicked off its season against Fortuna on Feb. 27. Since then, Del Norte’s meets at Eureka, at St. Bernard’s, versus North Coast Prep, and Saturday’s home meets against Arcata have all been postponed. No make-up dates have yet been set. The tennis team hopes to get back out on the court today in Ferndale.
