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.”
