The constant back-and-forth of the Battle for the Spike kept spectators on their toes last night, as the City High Little Hawks took on their cross-town rivals, the West High Trojans, once more.

This time City High, the predicted underdogs, emerged victorious.

“I couldn’t really feel anything,” Rylee Price ’15 said about the upset. “I was just really, really happy for a long time after.”

West High started out on top, opening with a 9-2 point lead in the opening set and eventually closing it 25-19. City High came back to narrowly win the second set 25-23, but roles were reversed when Trojans won the third set 23-25. After a large amount of long rallies, the Little Hawks came back to win both the fourth and final sets 25-20 and 15-12.

This is the second year in a row that the Battle of the Spike was drawn out to five sets, with new victors appearing this year.

“It felt really good to win after last year and how close it was this year,” Alexa Aldrich-Ingram ’13 said. “It felt good to come out on top.”
