Warrior Memories: Mattz was there for DN sports

Each week as I prepare to attend a Warrior athletic contest, no matter what the sport, I can’t help but look back at what I consider the greatest Warrior fan I have known.

While a student at Del Norte, Ray Mattz was an outstanding performer on the football, basketball and baseball venues until he graduated in 1938. I first got to know Ray while I was a student at Crescent Elk and attended Warrior contests at the high school.

Reel Deal: Klamath angling paused during emergency flows

Although the opportunity to take home adult chinook salmon caught in the Lower Klamath River has passed, the salmon fishing is still great, and chinook under 22 inches can still be retained.  But anglers will most likely have to wait for the river to drop back down from emergency Trinity River flows that were started Tuesday.

Fishing for salmon holding in the Chetco River estuary has been pretty slow, but the Lower Rogue River bite has been pretty good, besides a few quiet days during the recent rain.

Del Norte tops McKinleyville 5-2 in season opener; celebration marred by 2 late red cards 

The Del Norte boys soccer team finally got out on the field on Wednesday for its first competition of the season. The Warriors opened right up with Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league play and are off to a 1-0 start to the season after topping McKinleyville 5-2.

“I don’t think I could ask for more,” said head coach David Sanyaolu. “The players put in their best and I am happy that we played a passing game. That is the philosophy that I am trying to instill in them. It is a team game. You pass the ball and move; that is all.”

The Del Norte girls soccer team hosted a tough McKinleyville team for its Humboldt-Del Norte Big 5 league opener, falling 4-0. The young Warriors are pleased with the progress they have made, however, after a 1-2 start to the season.

“I am happy about how we played,” said head coach Clar Byers. “McKinleyville is a good team and we only had 12 players on our roster today. The girls settled down and passed around.”

The Del Norte girls tennis team lost two tightly contested matches in three days, slipping back to 2-2 for the season.

The Warriors traveled to Eureka on Saturday and picked up their first loss of the year in a close 5-4 match against the Loggers.

“It gave us things to work on this week and the kids are doing it,” said Del Norte head coach Samuel Escobar. “We have done a lot of movement exercises, a lot of repetition of going side to side, and we worked a lot on volleys and overhand shots.”
