A four year  winning streak was snapped Thursday night.

For the first time since losing to McKinleyville in 2005, the Del Norte High varsity volleyball team lost a Big 5 Conference volleyball game, falling to Fortuna 22-25, 21-25, 23-25.

While the Warriors opened the Big 5 season Tuesday with a convincing three game win over Eureka, nothing went right on Thursday as the Huskies dominated things from the start to earn the surprise win.

“It was the complete opposite of the Eureka match,” Warrior co-coach Pablo Lorenzi said. “Everything we did right in that game we did the opposite.”

The Warriors made countless service errors, especially during key points of the game, Lorenzi said, adding that the team’s serve receive was also quite “shaky.”

Lorenzi said he felt the girls were  too “nonchalant” about the contest and did not take their opponent seriously enough.

“We’re not going to walk into a gym and just win,” he said. “We have to work. As long as we’re working hard we’re fine.”

DN JV team falls in three games

The Del Norte High junior varsity volleyball team lost 16-25, 25-23, 9-15 to Eureka on the road on Tuesday.

After a slow start in the first game, the squad came together and “were on fire” in the second game head coach Erin Louy said, before the Warriors dropped the third and final game. Louy said a key problem in the third game was her team not being able to communicate during serve receive situations.

Louy commended Karah Marcinek, who did an excellent job as a back row defensive player, especially with her digs, Louy said.

“She dug almost every ball and some of the hits were pretty difficult to get to,” Louy said.

Chandler Davis and Morgan Laney each had four kills for Del Norte while Whitney Floyd  had two kills.

Louy said that  while the team lost they have made strides. “It’s just  a matter of working out the kinks,” she said.
