Recent Del Norte graduate Daniel Standring’s final high school track and field season came to a close in May at the  Redwood Empire meet, but Standring isn’t through competing in the field.

The 2016 graduate was back at it in June, competing in the Gold West Invitational  in El Dorado Hills and the Region 16 Junior Olympic Championships at Sacramento State University. Standring followed that up with a couple days this week at the Brigham Young University track and field camp, which he has attended three years in a row now.

Give It a Tri: Getting ready for the ride

“Peek outside the confines of your imagination.” — Jeff Matlaw

The Aug. 21 Crescent City adult triathlon and duathlon both have 12-mile bike rides. Let’s go biking.

Hopefully you own or have borrowed a bike by now. It can be any kind of bike: cruiser, mountain, road, race, etc. Whatever you do, train on the bike that you will race on. Have it checked out at the bike shop for being road-worthy. Be able to change a flat. Keep it clean and learn how to maintain it. Check with Tom at Back Country Bicycles on Northcrest with questions.

Local on to 50-70 Oregon State Little League championship game

A local little leaguer is just one win away from capturing an intermediate Oregon State championship in Wilsonville.

Junior Nunez, who was an eighth-grader at Redwood Elementary School, is the starting shortstop for the Grants Pass National Little League 50-70 team.

Passing the parade

Runners in Del Norte are offered a wide array of 5 and 10 kilometer races throughout the year, including timed events, fun runs and fundraisers for all kinds of local organizations, but no races bring out the crowds quite like the Fourth of July 5K/10K.

The annual Fourth of July run follows the parade route, co-opting the large crowds that gather every year.

King of Clubs: Golf is a game for thinkers

Golf is a game. It requires creativity, feel, patience and an open imagination. 

I have always played golf like a game of chess, my ultimate goal being to shoot the lowest score I possibly could, and in order to do that I had to play the golf backwards in my head.

Warrior Memories: Warrior greats headed to Hall

This year’s group includes one coach and five athletes. Helen McNamara Ferguson is the coach being inducted, but she was also an excellent Warrior athlete before girls received the recognition they have now. In her senior year she was voted female athlete of the year.

Farm team wins DNLL baseballís 1st District 8 title

Del Norte will have its first male representatives at the Oregon Little League State Tournament this year.

Del Norte moved to Oregon’s District 8 several years ago, and the Warriors had a softball team win the district to advance to state, but this year’s Del Norte Farm League All Star team won the first district title for the boys — and they did it in dominating fashion.
