Sports - July 2013

The weekend routine continued for the Humboldt Crabs. Lose the series opener on Friday, and then win the next three games.

On Friday, Top Speed was in first place in the Far West League.  On Sunday the Crabs made sure that was no longer the case.

The Crabs try to avoid losing their first series of the season against the Redding Colt .45s.  Both teams are members of the Far West League but Sunday's matchup was a non-league game because they play at Redding in late July.

GET THE BROOMS OUT!  The Crabs complete the sweep of the Neptune Beach Pearl.  Humboldt has won nine straight ball games.

The Eureka Community Skateboard Festival featured two competitions. News Channel 3's Chet Davis was at the event to wintess a pair of second graders compete. Here's this week's Sporting Youth.

For Warren Crawford, flirting with perfection at the bowling alley has become something to expect. News Channel 3's Chet Davis saw Crawford in action. Fresh off the best performance of his life. Crawford is the Athlete of the Week.
