The Palo Alto High School girls’ varsity volleyball team (6-0) defeated Henry M. Gunn High (2-4) in a league game on Thursday in three straight sets (25-13, 25-22, 30-28).
The Vikings are undefeated so far in league and felt strong going into the game.
“We played really well on Saturday, so I was hoping to build on that, keep trying to find the best version of us and what we can be," volleyball coach Chris Crader said.
Gunn, on the other hand, is a newcomer to the upper league and, according to Paly sophomore Amelia Vugrincic, has improved since last year. Although Paly has beaten Gunn in previous years, the Vikings were going in with a strong but not overtly confident attitude.
“It’s our rival game, so we were really pumped to play them," Vugrincic said, "In the past years we had been better than them, but ... we never want to underestimate a team."
