Junior Chloe Mayer buries a long three-pointer to help the Vikings advance in the state playoffs. Action News Now's Ross Field brings us the story.

It's something you envision when you're young and playing by yourself in the driveway. That dream situation of hitting a game-winning shot at the buzzer. When PV's Chloe Mayer got her chance to make it happen for real, she did not let the moment go to waste.

"I just turned around and I just see everyone clearing the bleachers and tackling me," said Mayer.

"It was like a movie scene, you know how you see movies? Like '3, 2, 1....' Everyting was in slow-motion. The best high school experience I've ever had," said Sirena Tuitele.

"As soon as it left her hand, I knew it was in, I mean I could see it, it was right there, right in my eyesight. It was money," said Mark Cooley.

A 35-foot three-pointer that kept PV's season alive as they defeated Sacramento 47-46 in the first round of the Division-5 state playoffs.

Mayer's heroics have become the talk of the school.

"People are calling me The GOAT or superstar or whatever you want to name it. I just laugh," said Mayer.

"People have been talking about every period. Her classes have applauded her. One teacher doesn't allow gum and today was going to be Chloe Mayer Gum Day," said Cindy Enberg.

And Mayer's Miracle has burst onto the social media scene as well. NBC Sports tweeted the Action News Now video.

"I barely even know how to work Twitter. Everyone is re-tweeting, liking me, DM'ing me, all that stuff," said Mayer.

"She has all the hype right now, everyone posted on their stories about her, that shot she made. Everyone is in shock," said Pedro Marks.

An incredible moment for Mayer and PV.

"We had kids in that gym to people that were 90-years-old that all got to celebrate the most exciting moment in our gym this year," said Pam Jackson.

"It was fun, it really was. That's something I'm always going to remember," said Mayer.

PV will now host Silver Creek from San Jose in the second round of the state playoffs Saturday at 5:30pm.
