Facing defending CCS Div. II champs, the girls volleyball team fought hard.

Facing the defending CCS Div. II champions, the Menlo School volleyball team took St. Francis to a fifth game before falling 3-2 in Mountain View on Thursday.

St. Francis edged Menlo 25-20, 21-25, 25-14, 19-25, 15-12 in the non-league match.

“We fought hard and made great efforts tonight.,” Knights coach Atlee Hubbard said. “We still need to smooth out a few things in our game, but overall a really nice match from us this early in the season.”
