Del Norte’s JV showed a lot of promise but needs to focus on consistency moving forward 

It was an up-and-down season for the Del Norte boys basketball team in 2015 as it went 12-7 with a 3-5 record in Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 play.

“It was a good season overall. I thought we could have won more games, though,” said Del Norte junior varsity head coach Kevin Baxter. “Every game was a game that we could have won. There wasn’t a single game this year that we went in thinking that the other team was better than us. We had a chance to beat every team if we came out to play. Obviously some games we just didn’t have it, though.”

On the precipice of a brand-new season

Four of the five Del Norte spring athletic teams kick off play next week 

Although the book hasn’t quite closed on the winter sports season, with several Del Norte wrestlers still alive in the North Coast Section Tournament, the spring sports are ready to kick off their 2015 season.

The boys tennis team will be the first to jump into action when it hosts St. Bernard’s on Saturday, scheduled to start at 10 a.m.

The tennis team has a brand new coach this year as Jim Holt takes over the reins.

Warrior Memories: Richardson shined on diamond and court

Since it is baseball season and I am still not sure which sport is my favorite, football or baseball, baseball wins out for now. The Warriors have had many outstanding young men take to the baseball diamond.

One that many Warrior fans remember for the thrills he provided was 1959 graduate Bill Richardson. Bill was outstanding on both the basketball court and on the baseball field. Bill was not real big, so he was able to play lightweight basketball all four years, making the all league team in his sophomore, junior and senior years.

Since the end of the 2014 season the North Coast Roller Derby has been hard at it getting ready for 2015. This year’s focus is all about synergy ­— creating a team greater than the sum of its parts.

DN gives Albany scare in NCS 1st round

Warriors falter late on the road as the Cougars pull out a 64-55 victory in the section playoffs 

The 12th-seeded Del Norte boys basketball team overcame a slow start to the game and pushed No. 5 Albany to the limit on Tuesday, but the Cougars made a enough big plays down the stretch to escape with a 64-55 victory in the first round of the Division III North Coast Section Playoffs.

Steelhead Derby doubles participation

There were nearly twice as many drift boats out on the water for the 33rd Annual Rowdy Creek Steelhead Derby than last year, with 22 boats on the Smith and Chetco rivers over the weekend. Del Norte Triplicate / Michael Zogg
 After several years of low attendence, 33rd Rowdy Creek Steelhead Derby draws 22 teams 

The Rowdy Creek Fish Hatchery Steelhead Derby, once a widely reknown fishing competition throughout the region, was back at full throttle this year. The derby was again pushing the competitions’ maximum capacity with 22 teams — almost double last year’s total.

“It is like back in the old days,” said Craig McRae, a Vacaville resident who has been coming to the RCFH Steelhead Derby for over 20 years. “For the last four or five years the numbers have been down around a dozen teams, but back in the old days we had about 22 to 24. I think it is all credit to Kimberlee Swift. She is the new director of the derby and she has worked her tail off. Whatever went right is because of her. She just dove into it like a madman and it paid off. She is a go-getter.”
