JV pulls together throughout year

Young softball players turn talented group into strong team this season 

The junior varsity softball team faced its share of challenges this season, including a roster of about 14 girls thinning to just nine by the end of the season, but Del Norte JV head coach Alyssa Bergquist was proud of how her girls performed this year.

“I think the season went really well,” Bergquist said. “We haven’t had a strong JV team for a while; last year we didn’t win any games. This year we had high hopes for the girls coming in and they really stepped it up.”

King of Clubs: Masters carry on tradition in golf

“If the Masters offered no money at all, I would be here trying just as hard.”

— Ben Hogan, Masters Tournament Champion in 1951 and 1953

Today is the first round of the 79th Masters Golf Tournament held each year at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Ga. The Masters tournament was created by the late and great American golfer Bobby Jones and Clifford Roberts, the 1931 Chairman of Augusta National GC, back in 1934, and is consider by most as the greatest golf tournament and by some as one of if not the best sporting events in the world. 

Boy throwers PR at Bowerman Relays

Del Norte boys take fourth, girls third in small school division in Medford 

Although the Del Norte track and field team was shorthanded due to spring break activities last week, the Warriors were pleased with the performances of the 24 athletes that made the trip to Medford for the Bowerman Relays on Saturday.

The Bowerman Relays provided the biggest track meet of the season so far for the Warriors with 17 total teams in attendance. The meet was split into a large school division and a small school division with Del Norte falling into the small school category. The boys finished fourth in the small division and ninth overall despite competing in just seven of the 15 events and the Warriors girls took third in the small school competition and eighth overall while competing in 10 of 15 events.

Fishing on the river picked back up this week just in time to provide anglers a place to fish while escaping the swells on the ocean in Brookings that kept most sport fishing vessels in the harbor throughout the week.

Smith River

With the Smith River rising to fishable levels this week, anglers were able to get at the steelhead that are still in the system.

Mick Thomas of Lunker Fish Trips said he took a guided trip out onto the Smith on Thursday and hooked six fish, catching three of them.

“There are still some fish out there — a few fresh ones, but most of them were downers. That is a good thing,” Thomas said.

Warrior Memories: ‘52 graduate Ray added exquisite flavor to Warriors

One of the things that I really enjoy about doing these columns is looking back at and talking to former Warrior teammates. One of those that present Del Norters will recognize is 1952 graduate Ray Young.

Ray owned and operated Glen’s Bakery for many years until his retirement. Ray moved to Crescent City in 1947 and his parents opened Glen’s Bakery, which was in the area of the S curve at that time. This business was  completely destroyed by the 1964 tsunami. The new Glen’s Bakery was completed at its present location that same year. 

Wild Rivers Swim Club offers free swims at Endert

April is ‘Adult learn to swim month’ and the Wild Rivers Coast Masters Swim Club is doing its part by offering adults 18 and older the opportunity to swim with the Masters Club on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-6:30 a.m. at Fred Endert Pool all month long.

“There is no need to feel intimidated by the term Masters, as it is simply the name of our national organization,” a Wild Rivers Coast Masters Swim Club press release said. “Remember, everyone needs to start somewhere and we are here to assist you with your goals. We exist to promote health and wellness through swimming.”

Steelhead fishing closes on Chetco Tuesday; rising rivers indicate flourish as season ends 

After the last few weeks of dry weather left the Smith and Chetco rivers running low and clear, the big rains last weekend have the rivers back in good fishing shape for what could be one of the last pushes of steelhead of the season.

Ocean fishing

Lingcod and rockfish have remained plentiful in Brookings Harbor this week, though Andy Martin of Wild Rivers Fishing advised that the lingcod have started moving off of their spawning beds and into deeper water and he has switched to using heavier jigs.

Warrior Memories: Roping cows and tossing touchdowns

There are things that help turn a coach’s hair gray.

When I came back to Del Norte High School in 1980 to work in the football program, I found that the starting quarterback was a sophomore with one year of experience as the starting quarterback. It is not often that you find that kind of talent but Reece Stacey had it.

Lewis Brothers rack up wrestling hardware

Wyatt, Thunder have become two of the top wrestlers in the nation for their age 

Wyatt (6) and Thunder Lewis (8) have spent a lot of time in the car over the past year. It took 35 hours to get to Tulsa in January and 22 to get to Denver last weekend, not to mention trips to New Mexico, Washington, Nevada, Oregon and all over California. For every hour spent on the road, however, they have spent many more on a wrestling mat.

It is that dedication to practice, in tandem with plenty of natural talent, that allows  the Lewis family to bring some of the most coveted awards in youth wrestling home to Smith River from those long trips.

Sun shines on 241 participants in another successful Redwood Wild River Run in 2015

The 2015 Redwood Wild River Run brought 241 people to the covered bridge on South Fork Road for the annual event. This year’s run featured a pretty even split of runners from Oregon and California with two more runners from Boise, Idaho. and another pair of participants from Malden, Maine.

Although the 241 runners was down a little bit from the record setting turnout of 272 in 2014, that was just fine by organizer Ralph Hirt, who has to deal with every runner as they crossed the finish line.

“That is what I would call ideal,” Hirt said. “It is just my personal feelings, but I think that is about what we can handle comfortably at the finish line. When we go over 250 runners it gets difficult. I think between 230 and 250 is ideal.”
