Softball wins pair in Oregon

The Del Norte girls softball team took a midweek trip to Eagle Point, Oregon, on Tuesday and returned to California with a pair of wins.

The Warriors overcame a slow start to beat Eagle Point 6-3 in the first game of the doubleheader and rolled over Pheonix for a 17-0 victory in five innings by mercy rule in game two.

Annual Redwood Wild River Run draws 127

Among the ranking 12-year old triplets from Gold Beach, Ore., brothers Soren and Iamon Gustafson finished 1st and 2nd, respectively, in the 10-14 age category, while their sister, Brende Gaston, finished 1st in the same. They pose with their father, Robert Gustafson, who finished first in the 60-69 category. This is their third year coming to Del Norte for the 5k. David Grieder // Del Norte Triplicate
Some ran, some strolled, some stood and kept times Saturday morning at the Redwood Wild River Run, an annual race through the sempervirens along the Smith River. 

It was overcast and sporadically drizzly March 19 for nearly 200 runners and volunteers converged at the covered bridge near Stout Grove. Cars stacked up on either side of Douglas Park Drive, just a few turns off of U.S. 199. Many of them were local or semi-local, including every town in Del Norte as well as surrounding Humboldt, Jackson, Curry, and Jefferson counties. A few others came from as far away as Inyo County or Chico, not to mention some delegates from Phoenix, Arizona and Reno, Nevada. 

Ralph Hirt is approaching his 30th year as the central organizer of the annual 5K/15K run which dates back to the 1970s.

The Del Norte baseball team played 15 innings at Three Amigos Field in a non-league doubleheader against Fortuna and held a lead at the end of 10 of them. The Huskies grabbed the lead when it mattered most, however, escaping Del Norte with 7-6 (eight innings) and 9-5 victories over the Warriors Saturday.

“We led the both games up until the top of the sixth inning,” said Del Norte head coach Travis Johnson. “We just quit scoring runs and they kept chipping away. We had a few blunders, too.”

Warrior softball steps up on day two in Cloverdale

The Del Norte softball team turned things around in Cloverdale on Saturday.

The Warriors fell 17-2 to St. Joseph’s on Friday, but Del Norte looked like a different team on Saturday as they blew past College Prep (Oakland) 21-2 and beat McKinleyville 5-2 to capture the consolation championship game.

Del Norte outclassed College Prep, who is still struggling to replace eight seniors from last year’s team, Lorenzi said. Sophomore Brook Nolan got her first start on the mound for the Warriors and pitched all five innings, giving up just two hits and no walks in the win.

Warriors run at Panther Relays

The Del Norte track and field team was left shorthanded on Saturday at the Panther Relays, but the Warriors were able to grab four first place finishes and three more runner-up finshes in McKinleyville.

The relays had to be rescheduled this year due to rain, but about half of the Del Norte athletes, along with their head coach, had prior commitments scheduled for what was supposed to be a rare off weekend for the team.

Dn baseball starts season with a win

The Del Norte baseball team gave up a run in the top of the first inning but that was all Gold Beach could muster in the season opener at Three Amigos Field. The Warriors tied the game up in the bottom half of the inning and scored in every frame to pull away for an 11-1 win in five innings by the mercy rule.

“It was the first game, so we just wanted to get the kids some playing time, get some jitters out of the way, and move kids around a lot,” said Del Norte head coach Travis Johnson. “We got to see a lot today.”

Warrior softball dominates Gold Beach 11-1

The Del Norte softball team got one in the win column in its second outing of the season with an 11-1 victory over Gold Beach in a five inning game shortened by the mercy rule.

Early errors derailed the Warriors in their first game of the season against Crater on Tuesday. Once again the Del Norte defense was a little shaky coming out of the gate, committing two errors that led to an unearned run, but the Warriors defense rebounded to play error-free softball the rest of the way. 

Boys golf takes 2nd place at Beau Pre

The Del Norte boys golf team continued its strong start to the 2016 season with a second-place team finish at Beau Pre Golf Course in McKinleyville on Thursday.

The Warriors finished 13 strokes behind the home team, McKinleyville, in the team standings but Del Norte maintained its place atop the season standings with an 11-stroke cushion over the Panthers.

Tennis tops McKinleyville for first win of season

The Del Norte boys tennis team could have relied on its superior numbers to beat McKinleyville for its first meet win of the season on Saturday. The Panthers have just two players and therefore were forced to forfeit the No. 3, No. 4 and No. 5 singles matches as well as the No. 2 doubles match.

The forfeits alone assured the Warriors of their first team win of the season, but Del Norte also won its first matches of the season with sophomores Rickesh Khilnani and Rylee Weaver winning the No. 1 and No. 2 singles matches, respectively.

Warrior Memories: Teammates made the 1950 baseball season my favorite Warrior memory

I was once asked what was my favorite season as a Warrior. I have never had a hard time answering.

While football may be my all-time favorite sport, baseball was always a close second. My answer to that question will always be the 1950 baseball season.

It was a great year. We went undefeated to win our second league championship in a row. What made it really memorable was that the teammates I had on that team were so special. One of those was senior Louie Fowler.
