Palo Alto's Shah out for the season with a torn ACL

Palo Alto’s Annika Shah, who averaged 25.2 points per game as a sophomore, is out for the season after suffering a torn ACL in August.

With Shah’s sensational offensive production the Paly girls went 23-5 last season, advancing to the Central Coast Section Division I championship game and to the second round of the state playoffs where the Vikings went on a monster road trip to the north of the state, winning at Del Norte of Crescent City before having the season end with a loss at Enterprise of Redding.

“We’ll be OK,’’ Palo Alto coach Scott Peters said. “We have no seniors but we’ll be better defensively. ACL’s happen. Annika is helping coach. She’ll be back for her senior year.’’

Shah, a two-time All-SCVAL selection, has a career high of 41 points, scored against Saratoga last January.

Scott Peters is a great coach and a great person. PA is lucky to have him at the helm. I played hoops with him for years and there's no finer person.

Sad for Annika!
