DN boys tennis falls 6-1 to St. Bís

Read more...The rain cleared long enough for the Del Norte boys tennis team to play its first match in a week and just its fifth of the season Thursday at home against St. Bernard’s.

The Crusaders brought five players to Crescent City to take on the Warriors, who had just four players available, picking up a forfeit in the No. 5 singles match. Both teams forfeited the No. 6 singles match and the No. 3 doubles match in St. Bernard’s 6-1 win over Del Norte.

DN track gets feel for league in Fortuna

The Del Norte boys and girls track teams opened up their Humboldt-Del Norte league championship defense on Wednesday in Fortuna, and although they finished second and third, respectively, in team scores, both Warrior teams were within 20 points of first place, and they are confident that the team will compete for a league title by the end of the season.

“It is early in the season. We weren’t putting kids in all of the events that we think they will excel in,” said Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar. “The main reason for that is so we can see how the other teams in the league stack up against us. You don’t want to show everything that you have all at once. It is a little cat and mouse-type thing. Considering all of that, I thought we did pretty well.”

Lewis brothers are best in the state

It wasn’t the Lewis brothers’ first Youth Wrestling State Championship this year, but Thunder and Wyatt’s run to state championships in their respective weight brackets of the SCWAY Kids State Wrestling Tournament on Saturday was perhaps the biggest.

“This is definitely the highlight of our year,” said Thunder and Wyatt’s father and coach, Josh Lewis. “Winning the SCWAY State is what we have had our minds set on for the last two months.”

Boys golf shoots low at Benbow

The Benbow Golf Course in Garberville wasn’t in the best condition during the fourth Homboldt-Del Norte league meet of the season, but that actually helped the Del Norte boys shoot their lowest scores of the season.

Kobe Lockwood returned to the top of the individual standings with a score of 66, trimming three stokes from his previous best score of the season, after finishing behind McKinleyville’s Kyle Wolfe at Beau Pre last week. Lockwood pushed his season lead up to eight strokes with the win.

Softball wins pair in Oregon

The Del Norte girls softball team took a midweek trip to Eagle Point, Oregon, on Tuesday and returned to California with a pair of wins.

The Warriors overcame a slow start to beat Eagle Point 6-3 in the first game of the doubleheader and rolled over Pheonix for a 17-0 victory in five innings by mercy rule in game two.

Annual Redwood Wild River Run draws 127

Among the ranking 12-year old triplets from Gold Beach, Ore., brothers Soren and Iamon Gustafson finished 1st and 2nd, respectively, in the 10-14 age category, while their sister, Brende Gaston, finished 1st in the same. They pose with their father, Robert Gustafson, who finished first in the 60-69 category. This is their third year coming to Del Norte for the 5k. David Grieder // Del Norte Triplicate
Some ran, some strolled, some stood and kept times Saturday morning at the Redwood Wild River Run, an annual race through the sempervirens along the Smith River. 

It was overcast and sporadically drizzly March 19 for nearly 200 runners and volunteers converged at the covered bridge near Stout Grove. Cars stacked up on either side of Douglas Park Drive, just a few turns off of U.S. 199. Many of them were local or semi-local, including every town in Del Norte as well as surrounding Humboldt, Jackson, Curry, and Jefferson counties. A few others came from as far away as Inyo County or Chico, not to mention some delegates from Phoenix, Arizona and Reno, Nevada. 

Ralph Hirt is approaching his 30th year as the central organizer of the annual 5K/15K run which dates back to the 1970s.

The Del Norte baseball team played 15 innings at Three Amigos Field in a non-league doubleheader against Fortuna and held a lead at the end of 10 of them. The Huskies grabbed the lead when it mattered most, however, escaping Del Norte with 7-6 (eight innings) and 9-5 victories over the Warriors Saturday.

“We led the both games up until the top of the sixth inning,” said Del Norte head coach Travis Johnson. “We just quit scoring runs and they kept chipping away. We had a few blunders, too.”

Warrior softball steps up on day two in Cloverdale

The Del Norte softball team turned things around in Cloverdale on Saturday.

The Warriors fell 17-2 to St. Joseph’s on Friday, but Del Norte looked like a different team on Saturday as they blew past College Prep (Oakland) 21-2 and beat McKinleyville 5-2 to capture the consolation championship game.

Del Norte outclassed College Prep, who is still struggling to replace eight seniors from last year’s team, Lorenzi said. Sophomore Brook Nolan got her first start on the mound for the Warriors and pitched all five innings, giving up just two hits and no walks in the win.

Warriors run at Panther Relays

The Del Norte track and field team was left shorthanded on Saturday at the Panther Relays, but the Warriors were able to grab four first place finishes and three more runner-up finshes in McKinleyville.

The relays had to be rescheduled this year due to rain, but about half of the Del Norte athletes, along with their head coach, had prior commitments scheduled for what was supposed to be a rare off weekend for the team.
