Lady Cards win Orland tourney
By the narrowest of margins, Corning High's junior varsity girls won the weekend's Orland JV Tourney with a 45-44 win over Yreka on Saturday.

Bailie Fryar - the tournament MVP - led Corning's offense with 17 points, followed by Avree Mulliner (9), Sofia Oliverez (8) and Kaylee Shoemaker (7).
Mulliner and Oliverez grabbed seven rebounds each.
On Thursday, Mulliner put up 15 points, Oliverez tacked on 12 and Shoemaker and Grace Mora added 11 apiece in a 67-22 win over Orland.
Mulliner and Oliverez were named to the all-tourney team, and Corning improved to 11-1 on the season.
