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.

Castle Rock comes back for seconds

The Castle Rock track and field team is smaller as it starts its second year, but the Sharks are glad to return to the track.

“We are just excited to be back,” said Castle Rock head coach Jennifer Larson. “We were hoping for a few more athletes — that might happen in the next few weeks, but we will take the two that we have.”

Reel Deal: Anglers take hiatus as Smith, Chetco blow out

Steelhead fishing on the Wild Rivers Coast has been left to the plunkers this past week as rains throughout the region have pushed river levels above drifting conditions. Many fishermen have taken a break from steelhead fishing altogether, however, opting to wait until the rivers are in a little bit better condition.

Warrior Memories: Tex Gatlin was a coach of several future coaches

Baseball season is here, and I find myself looking back at my senior year as a Warrior baseball plaer. We had our fourth head coach in four years — Tex Gatlin.

Gatlin joined the Warrior staff during football season as an assistant to coach Chuck DeAutremont before later taking over the job. Tex was really fun to play for. He had been a teammate of Coach DeAutremont at Southern Oregon College in Ashland, Oregon. Baseball was his first head coaching assignment and he led the Warriors to the league championship.
