DN ready to take to softball diamond

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.”

King of Clubs: Golf faces some big challenges

According to the National Golf Foundation — the most trusted source of information and insights on golf — it takes approximately four hours to complete 18 holes on a regulation golf course with the par of 72.  The NGF also has studied golf’s average score for the novice player which is well over a cumulative stroke total of 110. Furthermore, they concluded that it cost $36 for 18 holes at a public nominal-fee course. 

So, what is to be said about this?

It was an emphatic end to the season for 56 eighth-grade boys basketball team, 23 cheerleading squads and various other participants in the myriad competitions offered at the 47th annual Crescent City Jaycees Boys Basketball Tournament in Del Norte.

“We had a few glitches here and there, but all in all, the tournament itself was really competitive. Almost all of the games were really close,” said Jaycees Tournament Director John Phillips. “Everyone I heard from said the cheerleading competition was really well-run.”

A total of nine basketball teams from Del Norte County competed in the two-day event, but other schools — like Chehalis, Wash. — traveled  as many as eight hours to attend.

Castle Rock Charter School forms first-ever athletic team this spring after gaining CIF membership 

The scene on the track around Mike Whalen Field this spring is largely unchanged from years past. Like every year, anywhere from 50 to 80 athletes from Del Norte High School can be seen warming up for the upcoming track and field season. Look a little closer, however, and one can see a shiver of purple Sharks swimming through the sea of Warrior blue this season.

For the first time ever, Castle Rock Charter School is proud to offer an athletic option to its students in the form of a track and field team.

Smith, Chetco too low to drift 

The annual steelhead run on the Smith and Chetco rivers doesn’t appear to be finished yet, but with little rainfall in the last month, both local rivers are running extra low and clear. There are still reports of steelhead on the Smith with fresh fish still coming in from the ocean, but most anglers have been waiting for rain before they try to haul them in.

Instead, many fishermen have headed out into the ocean where lingcod fishing has been red-hot out of Brookings Harbor.

Warrior Memories: Polio couldn’t sideline Case

As a former Warrior who played in the late ‘40s and early ‘50s I often find myself looking back at a name that meant so much to Warrior athletes. That would be 1932 graduate Gordon Case.

In Gordon’s early years he was an outstanding athlete, but just before his 15th birthday he came down with polio. This confined Gordon to a wheelchair for the rest of his life, but did not stop him from becoming one of the Warriors’ greatest supporters.
