Warrior baseball goes 0-4 in Redding tourney

The Del Norte baseball team saw some of its toughest competition of the young 2016 season this week at the Falcon Baseball Bash in Redding against bigger schools. Although the Warriors went 0-4 Wednesday through Friday, the team was pleased with its performance overall.

“We were probably in the toughest bracket of the whole tournament,” said Del Norte head coach Travis Johnson. “Our kids hung with them in pretty much every game except for the first one. We learned a lot. I think we kind of know where we are now as a team.”

DN Youth Wrestling takes 46 to Mack

The Warrior Youth Wrestling programs numbers were a little bit lower for the second tournament of the year, but that was expected as the McKinleyville Tournament coincided with the start of spring break for local grade schoolers. Del Norte still took 46 kids to compete and came away with eight first-place finishes, 15 more runner-up finishes.

Warrior wrestlers that won their respective age and weight brackets were Ryker Renner, 5; Kaiden Blake, 7; Robert Reyes-Villegas, 7; Jace Bergman, 9; Colton Schaad, 8; Eddie Hartwick, 11; Skyler Moore, 13; and Braydon Henderson, 14.

Four Warriors white star on hardwood

The Humboldt Del Norte Big 5 and Little 4 leagues released their all county teams for the basketball season last week and four Warriors received White Stars between the boys and girls teams, with five more players receiving honorable mention.

The Warrior girls White Stars went to the team’s most experienced and its least experienced players in senior Regin Loftin and freshman Kaleya Sanchez. The Del Norte boys had a pair of seniors earn White Stars with Austin Healy and Kyle Cleland receiving the honors.

Warriors tennis tops McKinleyville 4-3 on forfeits

The Del Norte boys tennis team had to shift up without their No. 1 singles player and the increase in difficulty led to the Warriors losing all three matches played on Monday in Crescent City. Del Norte was able to pull out the team victory, however, thanks to the size of its roster.

McKinleyville has just two boys on the team this year, and could only fill the No. 1 and No. 2 singles matches, along with the No. 1 double match. Del Norte has five players on its roster, picking up the forfeits in the No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 singles matches and the No. 2 doubles match for the 4-3 victory.

Del Norte softball sweeps Crusaders

The Del Norte softball team came through in the clutch late in Game 1 to pull out a 5-3 victory over St. Bernard’s on Saturday. The Warriors fought through a cold and wet Game 2 to end the game early on the mercy rule with a 12-0 win in five innings.

The Warriors jumped out in front of St. Bernard’s in the second inning of the first game when sophomore Antonia Devol-Alcala reached base with two outs on a Crusader’s error and junior Chloe Luna belted her in with a double.

Freshman Kaleya Sanchez led off the next inning with a single and gave the Warriors a 2-0 lead after base hits by Payton Healy and Maiah Calleja brought her around to score.

Warrior Memories: Henry Hank Smith did a little bit of everything

With baseball season just starting I have fun looking back at former Warrior baseball players that I had the privilege of having as a teammate. During my junior year, which was the 1950 season, Hank Smith was one of those special Warrior athletes. 

Hank was a pitcher, and since I was a catcher we worked together a lot. He was fun to catch for.

Reel Deal: Downers on the rise in local rivers

Local rivers are still stocked with steelhead, though the number of fresh fish entering the system is reportely beginning to wane as the season starts its slow wind down.  Anglers looking for a change of pace may want to check out the Rogue River, where the spring salmon run has started picking up steam over the past week and a half.

DN boys tennis falls 6-1 to St. Bs

Read more...The rain cleared long enough for the Del Norte boys tennis team to play its first match in a week and just its fifth of the season Thursday at home against St. Bernard’s.

The Crusaders brought five players to Crescent City to take on the Warriors, who had just four players available, picking up a forfeit in the No. 5 singles match. Both teams forfeited the No. 6 singles match and the No. 3 doubles match in St. Bernard’s 6-1 win over Del Norte.

DN track gets feel for league in Fortuna

The Del Norte boys and girls track teams opened up their Humboldt-Del Norte league championship defense on Wednesday in Fortuna, and although they finished second and third, respectively, in team scores, both Warrior teams were within 20 points of first place, and they are confident that the team will compete for a league title by the end of the season.

“It is early in the season. We weren’t putting kids in all of the events that we think they will excel in,” said Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar. “The main reason for that is so we can see how the other teams in the league stack up against us. You don’t want to show everything that you have all at once. It is a little cat and mouse-type thing. Considering all of that, I thought we did pretty well.”
