Palo Alto girls' volleyball team honored one final time

The greatest two-year period in Palo Alto girls' volleyball history came to an official end in the most appropriate way on Wednesday, with the Vikings receiving another award.

Palo Alto coach Dave Winn and his players were honored between the Paly-Gunn basketball games as the Vikings received the Army National Guard national ranking trophy as part of the second annual MaxPreps Tour of Champions for Girls Volleyball.

Palo Alto was ranked No. 1 in the nation in the Freeman computerized rankings on MaxPreps after winning its second straight CIF Division I state championship while finishing 36-3. Palo Alto was one of just six high schools nationwide being honored on the second annual girls' volleyball MaxPreps Tour of Champions. MaxPreps ranks more than 17,000 varsity high school girls' volleyball teams.

The Vikings went 77-4 during the past two seasons and put the volleyball program on the national map with top-10 national finishes each season.
