Del Norte High School graduate Lauryn Lesina has transferred to Southern Oregon University in Ashland, Ore., to play basketball for the Raiders.

Lesina, a 5-foot-9 junior guard, spent the past two years at College of the Siskiyous in Weed, helping the Eagles to a 23-4 record and an appearance in the third round of the California Community College Athletic Association state basketball championships. Lesina averaged 15 points and seven rebounds in the 2011–12 season, earning Golden Valley Conference Most Valuable Player and second-team all-state honors.

Southern Oregon, an NAIA school, finished 14-16 overall last season and seventh out of 10 teams in the Cascade Collegiate Conference (5-13 overall).
