The smoke from the Camp Fire has not only forced the postponement of several outdoor playoff games involving local high schools, but also an indoor one at Los Altos High.

The Los Altos High girls volleyball team’s Northern California Division II semifinal match against Aragon, originally scheduled Saturday, was postponed until Monday night (after the Town Crier’s deadline) due to the amount of smoke that infiltrated the gym, according to Eagles athletic director Michelle Noeth.
