As I attend volleyball games being played by another great group of Warrior girls, it is fun to reflect on some of the outstanding young girls that have given Warrior fans so much to cheer about over the years — and there have been many.

The first seven weeks of the regular season have been full of attrition for the Del Norte football team, but the Warriors finally had a chance to reverse that trend with a bye week last week before traveling to Eureka on Friday, Oct. 24.
