The Vikings suffered a 10-2 loss to the Spartans on senior night on Friday afternoon. Paly recognized the team’s four seniors in a ceremony before the game started, which included Maddy Jones (‘15), Kabria Dame (‘15), Julianna Heron (‘15) and Autumn Macreno (‘15).

The game started off close, with neither team scoring any runs in the first four innings. In the top of the fifth, Mountain View had multiple hits, and ended up scoring three runs. However, Paly came back in the bottom of the inning and scored one run.

In the top the sixth, the Spartans extended its lead over the Vikings, scoring three more runs. Paly was able to score one more run in the bottom of the inning, making the score 6-2 going into the top of the seventh inning.

In the final inning, Mountain View scored four more runs, while Paly was unable to score again, making the final 10-2.

Although the Vikings lost, Jones was happy with how her team played.

“I think we had a lot of team comradery because we really stuck together and had a lot of fun for the whole game, and really stood by each other even when we made mistakes,” Jones said. “I’m really proud of how we played today.”

Assistant coach Liz Roscoe agreed with Jones, and thought the team did well.

“I think [the team] played exceptionally well,” Roscoe said. “We battled with Mountain View and put up a fight and they came out fighting. I think they did a great job.”

For the future, the team wants to work on playing in pressure situations.

“We can always work on everything,” Roscoe said.”I think getting in pressure situations and believing in yourself and knowing you can do it, and they actually did better with that today, but I think that’s something that Palo Alto needs to work on, just believing in themselves.”

Although today was the last home game for the Vikings this season, the team will play its final game of the season next week on Wednesday when they face Fremont.
