Warrior Memories: 1948 grad Dick Harmer was one of my first Warrior mentors

It has been a few years since I first entered the halls of Del Norte High School and became a lifelong Warrior.

One of the first students I met was senior Dick Harmer, Dick was a 1948 graduate who I had enjoyed  watching while I was still at Crescent Elk. He played both football and baseball.

Reel Deal: Bottomfish bite near Brookings

With winter slowly giving way to spring and the Chetco River closing on April 1, many anglers have started moving on from the winter steelhead runs on the Wild Rivers coast to other fishing opportunities in the region. Locals still have plenty of time and opportunity to haul in a steelhead on the Smith River, however, where the season runs through the end of the month.

Some anglers have decided to head north to the Rogue River, where the spring salmon run has reportedly been producing a couple salmon per day for about a month. Others took advantage of a flat ocean this week to target bottomfish in Oregon, where the season stays open year round.

Adults learning to swim in April

April has been designated as adult learn to swim month nationwide for the third year in a row, and this year the local Wild Rivers Coast Masters program is getting in on the act, hosting a low-cost adult swim group lesson thoughout the month.

“(United States) Masters Swimming, in conjuction with the American Red Cross, came up with a program basically to help adults learn to swim,” said Wild Rivers Coast Masters President Dan Gray. “They have designated April as the adult learn to swim month. In July we applied for a grant and we were one of 40 that received the grant to help us with the class.”

Warrior baseball goes 0-4 in Redding tourney

The Del Norte baseball team saw some of its toughest competition of the young 2016 season this week at the Falcon Baseball Bash in Redding against bigger schools. Although the Warriors went 0-4 Wednesday through Friday, the team was pleased with its performance overall.

“We were probably in the toughest bracket of the whole tournament,” said Del Norte head coach Travis Johnson. “Our kids hung with them in pretty much every game except for the first one. We learned a lot. I think we kind of know where we are now as a team.”

DN Youth Wrestling takes 46 to Mack

The Warrior Youth Wrestling programs numbers were a little bit lower for the second tournament of the year, but that was expected as the McKinleyville Tournament coincided with the start of spring break for local grade schoolers. Del Norte still took 46 kids to compete and came away with eight first-place finishes, 15 more runner-up finishes.

Warrior wrestlers that won their respective age and weight brackets were Ryker Renner, 5; Kaiden Blake, 7; Robert Reyes-Villegas, 7; Jace Bergman, 9; Colton Schaad, 8; Eddie Hartwick, 11; Skyler Moore, 13; and Braydon Henderson, 14.

Four Warriors white star on hardwood

The Humboldt Del Norte Big 5 and Little 4 leagues released their all county teams for the basketball season last week and four Warriors received White Stars between the boys and girls teams, with five more players receiving honorable mention.

The Warrior girls White Stars went to the team’s most experienced and its least experienced players in senior Regin Loftin and freshman Kaleya Sanchez. The Del Norte boys had a pair of seniors earn White Stars with Austin Healy and Kyle Cleland receiving the honors.

Warriors tennis tops McKinleyville 4-3 on forfeits

The Del Norte boys tennis team had to shift up without their No. 1 singles player and the increase in difficulty led to the Warriors losing all three matches played on Monday in Crescent City. Del Norte was able to pull out the team victory, however, thanks to the size of its roster.

McKinleyville has just two boys on the team this year, and could only fill the No. 1 and No. 2 singles matches, along with the No. 1 double match. Del Norte has five players on its roster, picking up the forfeits in the No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 singles matches and the No. 2 doubles match for the 4-3 victory.

Del Norte softball sweeps Crusaders

The Del Norte softball team came through in the clutch late in Game 1 to pull out a 5-3 victory over St. Bernard’s on Saturday. The Warriors fought through a cold and wet Game 2 to end the game early on the mercy rule with a 12-0 win in five innings.

The Warriors jumped out in front of St. Bernard’s in the second inning of the first game when sophomore Antonia Devol-Alcala reached base with two outs on a Crusader’s error and junior Chloe Luna belted her in with a double.

Freshman Kaleya Sanchez led off the next inning with a single and gave the Warriors a 2-0 lead after base hits by Payton Healy and Maiah Calleja brought her around to score.

Warrior Memories: Henry Hank Smith did a little bit of everything

With baseball season just starting I have fun looking back at former Warrior baseball players that I had the privilege of having as a teammate. During my junior year, which was the 1950 season, Hank Smith was one of those special Warrior athletes. 

Hank was a pitcher, and since I was a catcher we worked together a lot. He was fun to catch for.

Reel Deal: Downers on the rise in local rivers

Local rivers are still stocked with steelhead, though the number of fresh fish entering the system is reportely beginning to wane as the season starts its slow wind down.  Anglers looking for a change of pace may want to check out the Rogue River, where the spring salmon run has started picking up steam over the past week and a half.
