Unable to match Mountain View High’s intensity and focus, Los Altos fell to its rival in four games Thursday night in the league opener for both girls volleyball teams. The visiting Spartans prevailed 25-19, 19-25, 25-16, 25-21.
“The girls knew that we hadn’t beaten Los Altos in a league match in three years and were really motivated to give it everything they had,” Mountain View coach Dave Winn said. “To their credit, they followed our game plan quite well with some really tough serving and excellent passing.”
