King of Clubs: The original social network

The millennial generation walks around with their head stuck in the cell phone sand. Why?  Because of electronic social media, that’s why. 

During my trip to Florida this past month, I spend a lot of time people-watching. I was astounded at what I found. Maybe 1 out of 10 people were actually having a physical conversation with a person, everyone else was lost in the cyber dogma that lives within their smart phones or tabloids. Is Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, Snapchat, billy bobby sammy grams or whatever is out there, actually our next generation’s “social” interaction? 

God help us all if it is, and may the rules of golf never change!

Del Norte tennis turns tables on St. B's

In many ways Tuesday’s girls tennis match between Del Norte and St. Bernard’s looked similar to the season opener between the two teams in early September. This time it was the Warriors who managed to edge out the Crusaders for a hard-fought 5-4 victory

“We are extremely happy with the improvement that all of our kids are making, from our number one player to the exhibition matches,” said Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar. “At the same time, the other teams have improved too. It was night and day compared to our first match of the season against St. Bernard’s. It was just as competitive, but at a much higher level."

Warriors prepare for undefeated Huskies

After a win in its first Homboldt-Del Norte Big 5 game of the season, the Del Norte football team will get a better idea of where it stands in the league on Friday night when it welcomes undefeated Fortuna to Whalen Field.

Against McKinleyville last week, the Warriors managed to overcome 18 penalties for 146 yards to pull out an exciting 36-27 homecoming win.

“It was an exciting game, but for us we need to get more disciplined,” said Del Norte head coach Lewis Nova. “You can’t have 18 penalties and expect to be in ballgames week after week.”

Volleyball turns tide to win at Gold Beach

In a game similar to their matchup earlier this month, the Warriors handled the Gold Beach Panthers in straight sets, winning 25-17, 25-14 and 25-21 Wednesday night at Gold Beach High School.

The Warriors (11-7) pounced on the Panthers in the opening set, jumping out to a 12-3 lead thanks in large part to a 10-point streak behind the serve of co-captain Payten Healy.

Gold Beach struck back, however, with a 5-point streak of their own behind the serve of Heidi Hancock and the defense of sophomore Kayleanna Ridens, whose net play helped the Panthers tie the set at 15-all.

Warrior Memories: Proud of support we show our youth

As a Warrior player, coach and fan who goes back more years than I like to count, Del Norte has always been a great place to participate in sports. The way this community supports their youth is really amazing.

I can remember back to my time as a Warrior, which started in 1946, how great it was back then there was a club that had been formed by local citizens called the Quarterback Club and while it may sound like it was only football-oriented, they supported all Warrior sports.

This group provided me with an experience that I will always cherish. It was after my first season on the Warrior gridiron and the Quarterback Club was holding a dinner for the football team after the season. This is something they always did, They always brought in a big name athlete to speak at the ceremony.

Weekend Warriors: golf and soccer

The boys and girls soccer teams will both be in action this weekend in Eureka when Del Norte takes on St. Bernard’s on Saturday. The boys teams will take the field first at 11 a.m. followed by the girls at about 1 p.m.

On Monday, the girls golf team will compete in the fourth Humboldt-Del Norte league meet of the year at the Redwood Empire Golf & Country Club in Fortuna. The meet will begin at noon.

Scott logs personal best in cross country

Del Norte High senior cross country runner Karlie Scott took 12th place with a time of 22:03 at the first league meet of the season, held in McKinleyville on Wednesday.

It was her “best time in her two years as a cross country runner,” Assistant Coach George Hartman said. “Right now she’s in a good position to White Star at the end of the year.”

Reel Deal: Chinook entering Smith; Klamath a crapshoot

 Salmon fishing on the Lower Klamath River has been an unpredictable roller coaster with southwest swells continuing to sand-in the river mouth, slowing fall chinook from reaching the river and fishermen’s lines.

Salmon are starting to enter the Smith River system despite one of the lowest river levels on record, and anglers are having some luck hooking adults in some of the lower river holes.

Klamath River

Although some days have been right on the numbers, the frequent sanding in of the mouth has made fishing slow. Salmon are mostly entering the river only during high tides, according to Klamath fishing guide Ken Cunningham.

Homecoming win

The Del Norte High Warriors football team notched their first win in the Big 5 conference, besting the McKinleyville Panthers 36-27 at homecoming Friday night. 

The game at Whalen Field opened with a blast as the teams exchanged touchdowns to reach a 7-point tie within the first four minutes. Senior quarterback Austin Healy launched a successful 21-yard touchdown pass with 10:45 left in the 1st quarter, although the Panthers’ Jarred Smith returned those points at the 8:15 mark.

The second quarter saw another touchdown from Healy pushing almost out of bounds on the way into the end zone at 11:37 to go up by 7 after the extra point. Scoring slowed in the middle stretch of the quarter with several incomplete passes out of the many rockets shooting from the arm of McKinleyville senior quarterback Kyle Spalding. In the final seconds of the quarter, the Panthers pushed past multiple penalties near the end zone, bringing the score to 14-13 with 0.3 on the clock and missing the conversion to leave it there for the half. 

Girls soccer: DN slows in 2nd half

 Warrior girls strike first, fade in second half of 5-1 loss to Eureka on Wednesday

The Del Norte girls soccer team gave Eureka all they could handle in the first half, but as the game wore on the Warriors faded and the Loggers escaped Crescent City with a 5-1 win on Wednesday.

“It looked good at the beginning of the game. We were pretty evenly matched once again,” said Del Norte head coach Clar Byers. “I was really impressed with the girls. Once again we showed that our team play is improving. We ran out of gas in the 50th minute or so, I thought. That is when we stopped moving as much and Eureka’s conditioning was a little superior to ours. They kept the pedal to the metal and ran by us at the end.”

Sophomore captain Kes-e-loh McQuillen broke the scoreless tie in the 19th minute with a free kick just outside the 18 yard box. The ball sailed over the Loggers wall and passed the keeper into the upper half of the goal to give Del Norte a 1-0 lead.
