The Del Norte High boys tennis team nearly earned its first win of the year, falling in the last doubles match of the day to lose 5-4 to Fortuna on Thursday at home.

“We had really strong performances from everyone,” head coach Kirk Olesen said.

The young squad lost all eight starters from last year, with very few players having high school tennis experience before the season began.

Despite the loss, Olesen said he has been pleased with his team’s progress.

“When they gain more experience we’ll start to win these type of games,” he said.

For the past few seasons it’s been a pitchers’ duel when Del Norte High and Gold Beach, Ore., meet in softball.

Wednesday was no exception as Del Norte came away with a 1-0 home victory in the squad’s first regular season game of the year.

Coming off a season in 2008 that ended with the Warrior softball team’s first ever North Coast Section title, the win on Wednesday was a nice way to kick off  the 2009 campaign.

Panthers pitcher Molly Hockema had six strikeouts and gave up only a single hit. But one hit was all the Warriors needed
Del Norte senior pitcher Alyssa Bergquist, who won all the team’s games last year, continued her dominance to start off the year.

Coming off the best season in Del Norte High Warrior softball history in 2008, the expectations are high again this year.

But head coach Jackie Heuberger does not want these expectations to distract her team  so much that they lose sight of why they go out and play softball — to have fun.

“I don’t want that,” she said. “I want them to still have fun.” She added that at the end of the day, win or lose, if the girls work hard as a team and have a good time, she’s happy.

“We do have a lot to live up to,” senior third baseman Michelle Stacey said. “We just have to focus and have fun.”

In 2008, Del Norte went 22-3 and won the Big 5 Conference title for the second straight year.

Brookings-Harbor downs Central 52-49 on Saturday

CORVALLIS, Ore. — After what will probably be the most memorable game of their lives, the Brookings-Harbor High School boys varsity basketball players did a few things they’ve been looking forward to all year: hoist the OSAA 4A Oregon State Basketball Championship trophy and cut down the net in Gill Coliseum.

And they did so surrounded by friends, family members, and a student body that traveled five hours to be there — and has supported them all season long.

“We’d all like to thank everyone who showed up,” said Bruin Fred Corpening. “I don’t know how to describe it,” he said of the fans and friends on the court during the post-game celebration, “It’s wonderful.”
