The Warriors started to hammer out the kinks and put up a barrage of runs on the board, nearly coming back in the contest before falling to Analy 15-13.
“It was a slugfest,” Warrior head coach Pablo Lorenzi said.
Analy, the No. 5 seed, improved to 22-4. Del Norte, the No. 12 seed out of 12 teams, ends the year at 15-12. This was the second straight year the Warriors have gone to the playoffs after a several- year absence.
The contest did not begin that well for Del Norte as an error in the infield started things off on the game’s first play.
Former Warrior earns first title
It was a moment Petra Lorenzi had previously only seen on television, and now, here she was experiencing it for herself.

Drenched in champagne from bottles uncorked and sprayed onto everyone in the locker room, Lorenzi, a class of 2005 Del Norte High volleyball standout, celebrated along with her teammates in Puerto Rico Monday night.
The Llaneras of Toa Baja professional volleyball team had just won their first league championship since 1999, finishing off Corozal in three sets for a four-games-to-one series win.
Lorenzi, a setter who finished her senior season at the University of South Carolina last fall, joined Llaneras last December.
“It was great,” Lorenzi said in a phone interview from Puerto Rico Tuesday afternoon. “It feels like you’re the best for at least one night.”
