Eagles post season play is coming down to the final games!
Down two games to none in the CCS quarterfinal match at Soquel High Saturday, the girls volleyball team made a dramatic comeback winning the next three games to upset the fourth-seeded Knights 23-25, 21-25, 26-24, 28-26, 15-13. This was certainly one of the most exciting volleyball games in the program’s history in what felt like a home game for the girls, as our crowd was larger and louder than Soquel’s crowd. For the first time since 2007 the girls have reached the semifinals which matches us against #1 seed Harbor High at Menlo School at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. The crowd really makes a difference: come cheer on your Harker Eagles! There is a fee: $8 adults, $3 students with ID.
Sophomore Corey Gonzales placed fourth overall at the CCS meet in Salinas Saturday, qualifying him for the state meet which will be held Nov. 24 in Fresno. Senior Tyler Yeats placed 46th out of 108 runners. On the girls side, Claudia Tischler, grade 11, placed 23rd overall and Ragini Bhattacharya, grade 12, placed 33rd out of 97 runners.
The girls tennis season came to a close Friday as they lost to St. Francis 11-7 in the CCS quarterfinals. The girls closed with a 14-3 overall record and a second place finish in the WBAL. Congratulations on a great season!
