Lauren McCoy got to celebrate her 18th birthday a day early. In front of family and friends Wednesday night, the Arcata senior signed her national letter of intent with Westmont College. McCoy is a three-sport athlete but will play basketball for the Warriors. McCoy was a four-year starter on the basketball court. She led the Tigers to a league title and a trip to the Nor Cal finals. She led the team with 13 points and 12 rebounds a game. McCoy is a 4.12 student and will major in political science. She says Westmont is a perfect fit.
