Disc golf legend Scott Stokely helps locals improve their throwing game Wed. 

About 40 local disc golf enthusiasts gathered at the course in Beachfront Park on Wednesday afternoon to pick up some tips from one of the best to ever throw a disc: Scott Stokely.

“The first thing that I thought was, ‘Wow, what a diverse crowd,’” said Wild Rivers Disc Golf Club member Ron Cole. “There were all kinds of people there — people with autism, people who take care of autistic people, recreational disc golfers and a lot of competitive disc golf players as well. I disc golf about every day and there were people that I had not seen before.”

Del Norte runs away with boys and girls titles; Castle Rock competes in first meet in Brookings 

The Brookings-Harbor Icebreaker provided the first full track meet of the year for Del Norte, and it was the first track meet ever for Castle Rock.

The Warriors were by far the largest team in attendance and had nearly as many entries in the meet as the other six schools in attendance combined, with 61 athletes competing for the Warriors. As a result, the Warriors easily won the boys and girls titles. The boys doubled second-place Brookings-Harbor’s team score with 202 total points and the girls scored 160.5 points to beat Brookings by 60.

“All the other schools that we were competing against were smaller schools, though some of the athletes that were there were very good,” said Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar.

Warrior baseball tops IV 11-0

It may have been the first game of the year for the Del Norte baseball team, but the Warriors played like they were in midseason as they opened play with an 11-0 victory over Illinois Valley in Cave Junction on Tuesday.

From the first inning, the Del Norte pitchers pounded the strike zone and Illinois Valley just couldn’t make solid contact. Four Warriors pitchers combined to pitch six innings, striking out seven and allowing one hit. Perhaps most impressively, Del Norte didn’t walk a single batter in the first game of the year.

RWRR ready for big 2015 turnout

For over 30 years the Redwood Wild River Run has brought hundreds of athletes of various backgrounds out to compete on one of the most beautiful 5K and 15K courses in the world. The 2015 run is set for Saturday with races beginning at 11 a.m.

The Redwood Wild River Run is by far the most popular of the two that organizer and local running enthusiast Ralph Hirt puts together each year — the Fourth of July Run is the other.

Del Norte JV sweeps Arcata in doubleheader at Peterson Park to improve to 5-2-1 on season 

The Del Norte junior varsity baseball team is off and running with its 2015 season. The Warriors swept Arcata in a doubleheader on Saturday at Peterson Park with a 7-5 victory in the first game and a close 2-1 win in five innings during a rain-shortened nightcap.

With the pair of wins, the Warriors improve to 5-2-1 on the season.

“Things have been going really well so far,” said Del Norte JV assistant coach Casey Duncan. “We have 21 kids this year, so we have been able to play our second and third-string guys in our doubleheaders to get them some playing time and prepare them for the next couple years of varsity. It is nice having so many kids because we can build a baseball program, not just a baseball team.”

Warrior softball sweeps Cubs Tourney

DN starts season 7-0, brings home small school championship from Redding 

The opening weekend of Del Norte’s 2015 softball season couldn’t have gone any better for the Warriors. Del Norte swept through the Anderson Cubs small school tournament on Friday and Saturday, going 7-0 to capture the championship in Redding, where they have been held winless to open the season for the past two years.

“It was great to see the girls come together as a team,” said Del Norte head coach Tom Moore. “The individuals came together, worked hard and they played well. It was great. I couldn’t ask for a better tournament. It was a big momentum boost for us because the last two times we have been over there, we haven’t won a game.”

DN takes 2nd, 3rd in Mack Relays

The Del Norte track and field teams competed in their first meet of the season in McKinleyville on Saturday at the Panther Relays. The Warriors came away with a pair of first-place finishes apiece for both the boys and the girls.

“It was really good to see how supportive the kids were of each other and the large turnout that we had of parents, family and friends that went down to see them," said Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar. "We must have had about 35 fans down there, which was more than the number of kids we took.”

Del Norte baseball faces youth movement in 2015

There are a lot of new faces on the baseball field this year for Del Norte. The Warriors lose both of last years Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 League co-MVPs, two more white star winners and two honorable mention white stars from last year’s memorable run to Del Norte’s first HDN title since 1998.

There is still a causious optimism around the Warriors this year as they prepare to kick off their season on Tuesday in Cave Junction against Illinois Valley.

Mack tennis tops Warriors

The Del Norte boys tennis team showed some flashes of improvement on Thursday against McKinleyville, but the Panthers proved to be perhaps the toughest test of the season so far. They were able to pull out an 8-1 victory in Del Norte.

“They are a very deep team,” Del Norte head coach Jim Holt said of McKinleyville. “Their top four players are very strong. It was just a tough meet. I think McKinleyville may be the best team we have played so far.”
