The Palo Alto High School volleyball team was honored by MaxPreps for its first-in-the-country ranking on Wednesday.

Paly earned its top ranking after defeating Marymount High School in a thrilling state championship in December. It was the Vikings’ second consecutive Division I State Championship, but first-ever top national ranking.

MaxPreps officials visited Paly during the Paly-Gunn basketball quad night as part of its Tour of Champions.  They awarded coach Dave Winn with a trophy to commemorate the No. 1 ranking.

The Vikings finished 36-3 on the season. They will lose eight seniors to graduation but look forward to getting back to business in the fall, when the team will have many new faces.
