Del Norte High’s volleyball team won five of seven matches Friday and Saturday at a tournament that at times resembled an endurance test.

“We did some good things, but we still have stuff to work on,” said coach Pablo Lorenzi. The Warriors sometimes were playing matches every hour, he said, and ultimately finished in the top five out of 25 teams.

On Friday, Del Norte defeated Pierce High of Arbuckle, 25-22, 25-21, then topped Trinity of Weaverville, 25-22, 25-16. The Warriors lost to Enterprise of Redding, 8-25, 9-25.

On Saturday, Del Norte defeated Hamilton, 18-25, 25-5, 15-7, took down Anderson in two straight games and then defeated Lassen of Susanville, 13-25, 25-21, 15-11.

In their final match Saturday night, the Warriors lost to Shasta, 17-25, 23-25.
