Palo Alto football, volleyball teams begin state title defenses

Original post made on Sep 1, 2011

Actually, the reporter said the first for "each" of the programs. Speaking in regards to the Football and Volleyball programs.

The reporter gave props to the boys basketball teams. :)

"It was the first such titles for each program in 113 years of Palo Alto sports history. The Vikings also have two state crowns in boys' basketball (1993 and 2006)."

Here's to another great and SAFE year of Paly sports!

Paly also won the "mythical" state championship in boys water polo back in 1993. Undefeated, won the "state invitational" and the CCS championship.
