It was a great weekend for Paly Sports. Gotta love it when the Public Schools — with all that they are up against financially these day — shine on like they did this weekend.
On Saturday, The Paly VOLLEYBALL team clinched their first ever state title in a 5 set victory over Long Beach Poly in the CIF Division 1 State Championship. This has been a great season for the Paly team. They won the SCVAL De Anza Division title, CCS Division 1 title and the Norcal Championship Title to get to State. You can watch their CCS win over Menlo Atherton right on TV courtesy of the Media Center. Here’s a link to Keith Peter’s article on the Long Beach game in Palo Alto Online — all the details are there!
And Paly Football knocked out the powerhouse West Catholic Athletic league – beating Mitty, Bellarmine and finally Valley Christian Friday night to clinch the CCS 1 Division title. The Bellarmine game can be watched right here on our station! It looks like Paly has earned a slot in the state playoffs the weekend of Dec 17. Here’s a link to Tom Goode’s article on Palo Alto online to read all about it.
Here’s a link to PALY IN FOCUS – Paly’s Video News Magazine. Wes Rapaport our own renown INTERN has posted several sports shorts up there so check them out as well.
I am HUGE sports fan when it comes to Youth. I tell ya I’d rather watch our local kids play then get an all expense paid trip to the Superbowl or the Olympics. I’m just a localite. Crazy about our community and proud of our kids. Great job, kids!
