Warrior Memories: Red and white Warriors always bring Les Horn to mind

When I look at the old Red and White Warrior blanket that now hangs in the museum, I always see under 1949 the name Les Horn. 

Les was a running back on my first Warrior football team. He helped teach me early in my football career what football was really like. In all my years playing football I never ran into a back that could get their pads as low as Les when he was being tackled. It always seemed like all you could see were his shoe laces. Anytime we needed just 3 or 4 yards, Les would get them.

Redwood trophies set for silent auction on June 2

Redwood Elementary is looking to clear out some storage space this summer, but rather than throw away between 150 and 200 trophies won by the school since 1975, the Athletic Department has decided to hold a silent auction 6–7 p.m. June 2 in the multipurpose room to redistribute the awards to those who helped earn them. The minimum bid is $2. All proceeds from the event will go back into the athletic department.

The Del Norte softball team overcame a three-run deficit at home against Justin-Siena Wednesday, capping the rally with a walk-off single by Brook Nolan in the bottom of the seventh inning to send the Warriors on to the second round of the North Coast Section Division IV playoffs.

The Warriors let an early 2-0 lead slip through their fingers due to some spotty defense, but Del Norte made the plays down the stretch to rebound from the miscues.

Record set on rough course

A total of 13 paddlers braved the bumpy conditions on Saturday at the Noll Paddle Festival to complete the 5-mile course starting near Whaler’s Island and ending up on Garth’s Beach. James Bavin (below) repeated as the overall champion, setting a new course record in the process.

The second annual Noll Paddle Festival was considerably more bumpy than the first, but despite the conditions returning overall champion James Bavin of Arcata  was able to defend his fastest time overall, shaving over two minutes off of the course record that he set in 2015, setting the mark at 55:40.

“This was definitely a brutal paddle for these guys,” said event organizer Rhyn Noll. “They are all extremely tough for banging that one out. It was really rough over there by the lighthouse and then once we got over here to (Pebble Beach) it started to calm down a little bit.”

Throwers impress at Redwood Empire
