1. Janelle Jones (center), the new interim head coach of the Fortuna Huskies girls varsity basketball program, will finish out the season for her father, Mackey McCullough, who resigned the position Jan. 22. “I feel loyal to the girls, so I want to see this through,” said Jones as the Huskies hosted the Arcata Tigers last Friday night.

2. Fortuna Husky Kara Kavajecz can do it all for the junior varsity basketball team. The freshman forward can handle the ball in the open court as shown here, or she can play tough around the basket. Kavajecz was top scorer for her team with 10 points. The JV Huskies fell to the visiting Arcata Tigers 49-31 on Jan. 25.
