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.”

New ocean regulations

Brenden Stoll of Crescent City landed this 20-plus pound steelhead early in the morning on March 4. Stoll said he hooked the fish but soon after got his line crossed with fishing buddy Cody Gardner of Crescent City. When they tried to cut the lines apart, they cut the line to the fish. Surprisingly, the steelhead didn’t run and they were able to hastily tie the line back together in time to resume the fight and eventually pull it out of the water. Submitted

DN track and field shoots for two championships

The Del Norte track and field team captured a Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 League championship last year. This year, the Warriors have their eyes set on two.

Last year, the Warriors won the girls championship with 176 points, beating Arcata by 47 and more than doubling up the Loggers, who took third.

“My expectation for the girls is to win the league again like they did last year,” said Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar. “This year it looks like a lot of the teams don’t have the senior studs that they have had in the past.”

Warrior Memories: Blues sparked Warrior success

The four years that I had the privilege of playing baseball for the Warriors spark great memories every spring when the Del Norte baseball team takes to the field.

My first year, the spring of 1948, was not one of great success. I can’t remember winning a game. The team did not have any experienced players since baseball was just getting started again after World War II and there were no youth programs in town to develop players.

Young Warriors squad kicks off 2015 season with trip to Redding 

After weeks of practice, the Del Norte softball team is ready to show what it’s got this season as the Warriors travel to Redding to compete in the Anderson Cubs Tournament starting tomorrow and finishing up on Friday.

“We have a young crew here, but we have five returners,” said Del Norte head coach Tom Moore. “It is basically like it is every year. It is all up to them. They are young, but if they pull together, do their jobs and work hard we should be fine.”
