Maybe it’s not surprising that Lauryn Lesina is leading a revival in Del Norte High girls basketball by averaging 18.8 points per game this season — after being named the conference MVP in softball last season.

After all, the senior has been a two-sport star since her freshman year. 

As a freshman Lesina received honorable mention honors in varsity basketball as a shooting guard and was named a first team White Star honoree in varsity softball as a catcher and helped the team earn the conference crown. She received White Stars in both sports as a sophomore and junior.

As a sophomore she was a key component in the Warriors winning their first ever Northcoast Section softball title. As a junior she was named the conference MVP in softball as the squad won its third straight conference title and came within one game of playing for another NCS softball title. She led the Warriors with a remarkable .477 batting average and led the team with four home runs, 24 RBIs and 26 runs.

Now she’s a a key component of a Del Norte basketball team that is having one of  its best years in awhile.

After winning only eight games last year the Warriors were 11-8 following Thursday night’s Big 5 game versus Arcata. Lesina scored a season-high 34 points against Hoopa on Jan. 4.

Warriors and Tigers square off in conference showdown

The two teams at the top of the early season Big 5 Conference standings are set  for battle tonight.

The Del Norte High Warriors and the Arcata Tigers, which are both 2-0 in the Big 5, meet tonight at  7:30 p.m. in Crescent City.

While the Tigers, who are currently 15-4, were predicted to be a conference power this season and have done well in their pre-conference schedule, things were more unclear with the Warriors heading into the conference season.

Del Norte was 4-8 heading into Big 5 play, although they played a tough  pre-conference slate with elite teams from Redding, the Bay Area and Oregon.

Tonight’s game will be the first time in more than a month that the Warriors have played at home at Thunen Gym.

Del Norte head coach Scott Alexander said he believes that the squad’s 6-8 overall mark is a bit deceiving. As they have demonstrated in the past three games they are a squad that is coming together at the right time.

This incudes downing Eureka by nine last week and dominating Fortuna by 16 points Tuesday night in a game that Alexander said was the most complete Del Norte played all year. The squad also defeated Hoopa on Jan. 4 and currently are in the middle of a three game winning streak.

Del Norte girls earn Big 5 win

Down Tigers on the road 44-41

After going winless in the Big 5 Conference last season, the Del Norte High girls varsity basketball team finally earned a league win Thursday night.

Playing on the road against Arcata the Warriors won 44-41 after withstanding a late Tigers rally to improve to 11-8 for the year and 1-2 in the Big 5.

“The girls are exited,” head coach Buzz McCulloch said. “We  were up the whole game. It was a good team effort.”

For senior post player Ariana Spalding, to earn a conference win meant a lot to her and her fellow seniors. It was disappointing last year “that we couldn’t pull one off,” she said.

Warriors go to 2-0 in Big 5 with win over Fortuna

The Big 5 Conference season has started off perfectly for the Del Norte High boys varsity basketball team.

Del Norte went down to Fortuna Wednesday night and pulled off an impressive 50-34 win to improve to 2-0 in the Big 5 and 6-8 overall.

Three Warriors scored in double figures.  Juniors Layton O’Reilley and Nick McBride and senior Scott Skeen each had 12 points to lead a balanced Warrior attack. Senior Chris Scott finished with eight points.

Even without star player Kelsey Jacobs,   Big 5 Conference power Fortuna still proved to be a formidable opponent Tuesday night for Del Norte High.

At home, the Warriors fell to the Huskies 59-36.

Jacobs, a senior with a scholarship to play basketball at Wichita State, was injured against Eureka last week and is is likely out for the year.

Del Norte has a mixed evening in wrestling

Warriors fall to Hoopa and down McKinleyville

In sports, you win some and you lose some. Sometimes, that can happen in the course of just one night.

Tuesday evening in Humboldt-Del Norte Conference dual meet action, the Del Norte High wrestling team split its matches on the road after winning its first two HDNC matches at home last week against St Bernard’s and Fortuna.

Wrestling first against Hoopa, Del Norte lost 48-36. A short time later they came out and defeated McKineyville 54-30. All three teams are considered contenders for the HDNC crown, which Del Norte has won for two years in a row.
