Tigers spoil Warriors baseball home opener

Del Norte falls 15-1 to Arcata 

The Del Norte baseball team had a rough start to Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league play on Wednesday. The Warriors hosted Arcata at Three Amigos Field and the Tigers jumped on top early and never looked back with a 15-1 victory over Del Norte in a mercy-rule shortened five inning game.

Arcata struck fast for four runs in the top of the first inning. After Del Norte got one run back in the bottom half of the inning the Tigers ripped off three straight three run innings to grow their lead to 13-1.

“We had no intensity,” said Del Norte head coach Travis Johnson. “You can’t come out flat for a game against a good team.”

Johnson said that Del Norte has had some troubles here and there with playing with energy throughout nonconference play, but Wednesday’s game reached new levels.

“I have seen that before this year for parts of a game, but never for a whole game,” Johnson said. “I was proud of my underclassmen. My freshmen and some of my sophomores played a heck of a game and tried hard. We just need to all come together and play that way.”

With the loss, Del Norte drops to 3-7 overall and 0-1 in the H-DN Big 5. The Warriors will try to turn things around on Friday when they travel to Arcata for a rematch. Del Norte will play a doubleheader against the Tigers starting at 3 p.m.

Before the Warriors make the trip, however, Johnson said they need to make sure they are mentally ready to go.

“We need to correct our intensity level and our willingness to practice hard and play hard,” Johnson said. “We need to get back to that because right now we are flat.”

The Del Norte boys golf team took advantage of its only home meet of the season on Monday as all four team members turned in solid scores.

“The kids played well,” said Del Norte head coach Kirk Burrows. “I think everyone is pleased with their scores. It was a good day and a good time.”

Although it was overcast with occasional drizzle off and on at Del Norte Golf Course, the weather held off just long enough for everybody to complete their round. Roughly five minutes after the last score card was turned in, the rain started coming down.

DN baseball goes 1-3 at Shasta Bass

The Del Norte baseball team went 1-3 last week at the Shasta Bass Tournament in Redding. The Warriors lost 3-0 to Pleasant Valley and 3-2 to Gridley on Wednesday before bouncing back for a 13-3 victory over ACA early Thursday. Del Norte dropped its final game of the tournament to Etna.


Del Norte sweeps B-H Rotary Invitational

The Del Norte track and field team performed better than the competition at the Brookings Harbor Rotary Invitational on Saturday with both the boys and girls teams taking first place overall with 128.5 and 144 points respectively. Although the Warriors ran fast enough to win the meet, head coach Samuel Escobar said they were still a touch slower than they were before spring break.

“Part of it can be attributed to a lull in their training this past week,” Escobar said. “The weather also wasn’t very conducive to PRs because it was raining for most of the meet.”

Warrior Memories: Templeton’s big bat wowed DN, Merchant fans

When I look back at baseball in Crescent City the name Lee Templeton always comes to mind. Lee and his family moved to Del Norte in 1949, just in time for Lee to start his freshman year as a Warrior. Lee was big as a freshman, standing about 6-foot-4 and weighing 200 pounds. He showed right away that size was placed in a very athletic body.

Since Lee was 15 as a freshman, he was allowed to play varsity football and he played it well all four years. When football ended he took to the basketball courts, where he again proved to be an outstanding player. During his high school career he made the All-Humboldt-Del Norte League team in all three sports — football, basketball and baseball.

The Del Norte boys tennis team was back in action Wednesday after more than a week away from competition. The Warriors fell 8-1, including two forfiets, to Eureka in the first meeting of the season between the two teams.

JV pulls together throughout year

Young softball players turn talented group into strong team this season 

The junior varsity softball team faced its share of challenges this season, including a roster of about 14 girls thinning to just nine by the end of the season, but Del Norte JV head coach Alyssa Bergquist was proud of how her girls performed this year.

“I think the season went really well,” Bergquist said. “We haven’t had a strong JV team for a while; last year we didn’t win any games. This year we had high hopes for the girls coming in and they really stepped it up.”
