Captain Claire Krugler (‘16) builds off of her teammate and expresses her emotions about the game.

“I think we started out really strong and we did a really good job connecting as a team. We did let a little bit of our emotions get to us because the other team’s coach is our coach, but we came back strong in the fifth set and we really showed everyone what Paly volleyball is,” Krugler said.

Head coach Jereka Wilson was pleased with her team’s performance.

“I think they played really well, I think it was a tough match since their were a lot of emotions and ties with regarding the other coach, but it was awesome to see them come back during the fifth set,” Wilson adds.

The Vikings will play next in the Presentation tournament.
