North Coast Dungeness crabs are looking plump, with tasty sweet meat, according to sport crabbers.

Although official crab meat-to-weight ratios used to set the opening date for the North Coast’s commercial Dungeness crab season have not yet been completed this year, the word from recreational crab fishermen is that the crustaceans are looking ready for a Dec. 1 commercial opener — all the more reason for sport crabbers to get some while the getting’s good before the commercial fleet scoops up the bulk of ocean spiders.

DN finishes off perfect league season

Warriors overwhelm Tigers 49-6 in regular season finale, finish 7-0 in HDN 

It’s official.

The Del Norte football team is the 2014 Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league champion after putting the finishing touches on an undefeated league season with a 49-6 blowout in Arcata.

The Warriors got off to a rocky start when quarterback Steven Maready had trouble handling the snap and Arcata recovered just outside the red zone. Arcata returned the favor and fumbled its first snap as well and Del Norte recovered.

JV volleyball improves all season

The Del Norte junior varsity volleyball team struggled to win games this season, finishing with a 1-7 mark in Humbolt-Del Norte league play, but the Warriors are proud of the progress that the girls showed throughout the year.

“It was a great year,” said head coach Deja Wakefield, who took over in October for Megan Curtis. “It was a really good learning experience for them. We had games that we walked away from thinking that we could have played better, but in the next game we took what we learned in practice and improved. We didn’t win every game, but I think they sure learned a lot, which is really important at the JV level.”

Warrior Memories: Athletic play only part of Yamor’s DN legacy

One of the things that makes Del Norte such a special place to live and coach is Warrior athletes. One such athlete was George Yamor.

George played for Hall of Fame coach Ed Fraser in the 1940s. He was an outstanding athlete in three sports but was especially good on the baseball diamond.

Warriors sweep Arcata in playoff

The Del Norte volleyball team proved once again that it is the class of the conference when playing at full strength, winning a one-game playoff for the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5’s automatic bid into the North Coast Section playoffs in Arcata on Thursday. The Warriors topped the Tigers 3-0 (25-20, 28-26, 25-20).

“We stayed consistent against them,” said head coach Debbie Lorenzi. “They had a few runs of five or so to catch up, but we were able to stop those runs. We were just consistently going at them all the time. We had really good teamwork. Our passing was awesome, our defense was great and offensively we just kept hitting it at them. Everything we have practiced and talked about we put together on that one night.”

Warriors sweep Eureka 3-0 in regular season finale; rematch in Arcata Thursday

For the second year in a row, the Del Norte volleyball team is on top of the Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 standings, but once again the Warriors share that spot with Arcata.

Del Norte wrapped up the regular season with a 3-0 (25-9, 25-20, 25-10) win in Eureka.

“I liked the girls’ attitudes,” said Del Norte head coach Debbie Lorenzi. “We communicated well, but we had a hard time keeping our quickness going because the ball came over the net a little slow.”

King of Clubs: FootGolf: The best of both worlds

All over the country golf is being punched in the gut by three bullies: price, time and difficulty. 

The next generation golfer is weighed down by debt, busier schedules (perhaps because of working two jobs to pay their debt) and the inherent frustration which arises from learning a demanding hobby.

Perfection in the Making

Warriors need one more win this Friday to secure an undefeated season 

The Del Norte junior varsity football team continued its pursuit of perfection on Friday with a convincing 29-0 victory at home over Fortuna.

Although the Warriors finished the game with a healthy lead, head coach Dan Forkner thought his squad was a little sluggish in the first half. The JV squad was plagued by penalties in the opening half, including one that negated a touchdown. Del Norte clung to a narrow 6-0 lead heading into halftime.
