Palo Alto volleyball faced the Los Gatos Wildcats on senior night. The Vikings lost a nail biter after five sets.

The Vikings started slow, losing the first set 25-16 and losing the second set 25-21. The Vikings came back strong in the next set getting a 15-8 lead. They eventually won the third set 25-19.

“We had a long talk when we weren’t really focused and we got focused” Chelsea Fan (‘18) said.

The fourth set was neck and neck. Both teams were at a stalemate at 16-16. The Vikings started to pull away with a 22-18 lead. The home crowd was electric and the Vikings won the set 25-20.

“I think that the girls we starting to warm up and they kind of felt more comfortable with the game. So I think that was a huge part of the comeback” head coach Jekara Wilson said.

The Wildcats started the fifth set strong, taking an early 5-2 lead. But the Vikings took a 11-8 lead. The Wildcats clawed their way back a to 13-13 draw. With momentum on their side, Los Gatos won the set 16-14, taking the victory.

This senior night was odd because the game was held at Gunn, but was still a memorable one according to Gabrielle Bains (‘16)

“Even though the game wasn’t at Paly, it was still a special night. The seniors appreciated what everyone did and it made us feel like a family.”

Next up the Vikings play their final game until playoffs away against Mountain View on Thursday, November 5 at 6:45 p.m.
