Softball team greatly improves for CCS

The girls softball team has been doing especially well this season, with several key victories in their last three games as the season comes to a close. Despite taking some losses against Saratoga High School and Milpitas High School earlier in the season, the team has managed to bounce back with the vigor and might only a Viking could possess.

“I think our performance shows we deserve to make CCS.”

On May 1, the team took on Fremont High School and managed to pull off an astonishing 17-1 win, leaving Fremont ready to say, “Paly, this is your tape.”

“It was not our best game but we played well, we adjusted well to the slow pitching, didn’t have any errors in the field, so it was a good game,” senior Maggie Renteria said.

The Vikes bats were on fire as they scored four runs in the first inning, eight in the second, and five in the third to round off an incredibly lopsided victory.

With this win in hand, the Lady Vikes were ready to take on some stiff competition — the Gunn High School Titans. Luckily, they were able to secure yet another win, obliterating the Titans by a score of 13-1.

The sixth inning proved to be a complete rout, as the Vikes scored an impressive seven runs while the Titans were left scoring their only run of the entire game.

The girls final game of the season took place on May 10, and pitted the Paly Vikes against Lynbrook High School.

Yet again, the Paly Vikes massacred the opposing team.The game ended with a score of 9-0. This event is sure to go down as one of the great debacles of 2017 for fans of the inferior Lynbrook Vikings.

With their strong performance in their last three games, the Vikes are ready to take on CCS.

“I think that our team has started and finished this season really strong. We are a good team and I think our performance shows we deserve to make CCS,” says junior Elizabeth Schnaubelt.

The teams first game for Central Coast Section (CCS) is on May 17, when they will do battle against the Los Gatos High School  Wildcats.
