The Del Norte High varsity football team is ready to end the 2009 season on a high note tonight on their home field.
The Warriors face Big 4 Conference opponent Arcata tonight at home at Mike Whalen Field.
Del Norte head coach Bob Hadfield said the goal is to “play hard and get a win for the seniors.”
With the struggles the 2-6 Warriors have had this year, Hadfield said it would be nice to end the season with a convincing win.

Zara Gastineau was so in the zone that it was not until deep into her run at the Humboldt Del Norte Conference Cross Country Championships that she realized that she had left almost all the other participants in her tracks.
