The 1982 Del Norte High girls volleyball team was a sign of good things to come for the Warriors.
Debbie Lorenzi took over the volleyball program in 1981 after serving as the junior varsity coach under Sharon Wold. The fall of 1982 was an exciting time for Warrior fans. The football team won the league championship for the first time in 23 years, and made its first trip to the North Coast Section Playoffs, and the volleyball team did the same. The Warrior girls posted a league record of 11-1.
Mary Timmer, a 1983 graduate, was a big part of the team’s success.
Mary started her Warrior career playing with the junior varsity team as a freshman. As a sophomore during the 1980 season, Mary was moved to the varsity squad by coach Sharon Wold.
