Reel Deal: Anglers keep eye on PFMC meeting

While there are still steelhead available on the Smith River (mostly downers) and many ocean anglers are hauling in bottomfish out of Brookings, the big angling news on the Wild Rivers Coast, along with the rest of the Pacific Coast, will come from Vancouver, Washington, where the Pacific Fishery Management Council will consider and tentatively adopt an option for the 2016 ocean salmon season.

Warrior Memories: Mattz name synonymous with baseball

Any time I hear the name Mattz, I think baseball. Those who played here during my generation immediately think of Ray Mattz. 

Ray is remembered by many as one of the greatest Warrior fans ever, but he was also a great Warrior athlete. Ray was able to pass his talents on to two great sons, Kenny Mattz and Donnie Mattz. I have the pleasure of  seeing Donnie regularly as you cannot attend a Warrior athletic event  without running into him.

Warrior baseball rolls to 16-5 win over Crusaders

The Del Norte baseball team went on the road to Eureka on Wednesday to take on St. Bernard’s in its final game before Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league play kicks off next week, and the Warriors got back on a winning track with a 16-5 victory over the Crusaders in five innings.

The Warriors were playing without a trio of starters: Trent Bruschi, Ryan Janeiro and Hunter Johnson, but the team was able to overcome.

Rarely has Del Norte had more perfect weather for a track and field meet.

Temperatures set a new record in Crescent City, reaching 78 degrees, and with no wind athletes from around the Humboldt-Del Norte improved their marks at the Warriors’ only regular season home meet of the season.

One of the most positively affected events was the pole vault, which is naturally partial to warmer weather.

Popularity of pickleball on the rise in DN

Barbara Olesen was the first of Del Norte’s quickly growing contingent of pickleball enthusiasts to be exposed to the sport.

With a court nearby Olesen’s summer retreat in Arizona, the constant bouncing of whiffle balls and thwack of the racquet was hard to ignore.

DN track takes spring break road trip to Medford

The Warriors took 11 girls to North Medford High School who combined for 65.94 team points and a sixth place finish. Only 5 boys from Del Norte made the trip, but they put up 31.98 team points and finished 15th out of 15 schools.

Warrior Memories: 1948 grad Dick Harmer was one of my first Warrior mentors

It has been a few years since I first entered the halls of Del Norte High School and became a lifelong Warrior.

One of the first students I met was senior Dick Harmer, Dick was a 1948 graduate who I had enjoyed  watching while I was still at Crescent Elk. He played both football and baseball.
