Reel Deal: Smith River now closed for low flows

Although reports of salmon being caught in the Smith River began surfacing last week, the river has closed as part of sweeping closures to all rivers in Northern California subject to low flow closures. Anglers have still been having some luck on the Klamath River, however, and the strong bottom fishing season will remain open until the end of October.

Karlie Scott takes sixth at Eureka cross country meet

The Del Norte boys and girls cross country teams traveled to Eureka on Wednesday for their second Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league meet of the season.

The entire field turned in a slightly slower times than in the first meet due to the hilly course, but the Warriors’ only female runner, Karlie Scott,  finished six places higher than the first week, taking sixth place out of 30 runners with a time of 23:15.3.

Warrior Memories: Young a relentless tackler

One of the things I enjoy about writing this column is when I can look back at teammates I had in high school that have given me so many fond memories. One of those people that will always be very special to me is Al Young.

Al and I played our senior year at Del Norte under coach Chuck DeAutremont. Al played football, basketball and track, in which he was an outstanding pole vaulter. Al played four years of football as quarterback and defensive back. Al had a better than average speed and was an aggressive tackler from his safety position.

The Del Norte football team struggled with untimely mistakes again on Friday, and Fortuna was able to take advantage to grab a 37-13 victory in Thunen Field.

“We played them toe to toe, and it was a great battle in that first half,” said Del Norte head coach Lewis Nova. “They had their good plays and we had our good plays, but we just shot ourselves in the foot. You can’t compete at this level and continue to do that. I am just wracking my brains on what we can do.”

The Del Norte volleyball team kicked off its Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league schedule with a three-set sweep on Eureka (25-17, 25-14, 25-14) in Thunen Gym on Thursday.

“We were really focused on hustling hard,” said senior captain Regin Loftin. “That is what we worked on all preseason and ever since the Anderson Tournament, and I think we showed it a lot today. We hit hard and we dug. Our biggest problem was our serves, but we will probably work on that (in practice on Friday.)”

Furious finish to first half pushes Del Norte boys soccer past Cubs

The Del Norte boys soccer team picked up its pace through the middle of its match against South Fork on Wednesday and rode the push to a 4-1 victory in Miranda.

After a long drive south, Del Norte head coach David Sanyaolu felt his players were a little lackadaisical at the beginning of the game.

Slow start foils Warrior girls soccer in 3-1 loss to South Fork Tuesday

When the girls soccer game between Del Norte and South Fork kicked off on Wednesday, Del Norte head coach Clar Byers said it looked like the 2½ hour drive was still dogging the Warriors.

“We were pretty sluggish. I think the long trip took a little bit of a toll on us,” he said.

Del Norte conceded a pair of early goals in the 5th and 7th minute, and that proved to be the difference as South Fork held on for a 3-1 win.

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!
