The deluge outside couldn’t dampen spirits inside the gym. It wasn’t a high-scoring basketball game on Thursday, but every basket, block and dive for a loose ball elicited a maelstrom of applause from the crowd at Pescadero High School attending the 16th annual Hoop Dreams Small Schools Invitational. 

The game in question was the first of the tourney and the girls’ first game of the season. With rain hammering the roof, the Vikings played against Pacific Collegiate, a charter school in Santa Cruz.
