“The most impressive performance of the day was Jonathan Chiem with a best of 17.23, ran 16.55 and was clean and powerful over every hurdle. All the work that Jonathan put into this event all came together in one race. Jonathan’s performance represents what our program is about.

We need to be proud of all athletes that competed in this meet. A lot of hard work over the course of the season went into qualifying for this meet, and though most will not be moving on, we can not discount what they accomplished to get to this meet.”

Boy’s Lax falls short in NCS Championship game

On Friday night the Boy’s Lacrosse Team faced Marin Catholic in the NCS Championship game for the 3rd year in a row. Despite a valiant effort, the Dons fell short of MC with a final score of 8 to 9. The teams were evenly matched ranking #1 (Dons) and #2 (MC) going in to the final game.

Acalanes was first to score but MC quickly answered back with a goal of their own. Acalanes did pull ahead in the first quarter with a lead of 3 to 1. The 2nd quarter was more challenging for the Dons as MC scored 3 goals and the Dons were shut-out. Score at halftime was 3 to 4. The Dons were also out-scored in the 3rd quarter but rallied in the 4th which brought the game to a 1 point difference and a score of 8 to 9 with just under 3 minutes left to play. Although MC won the final face-off and wound some time off the clock, Acalanes was able to recover the ball with @ 45 seconds left in the game. The Dons gave it all they had and marched down the field as the clock ticked off precious seconds. Unfortunately, the Dons were unable to get a shot off before the clock ran down and just barely missed the opportunity to tie the game.

Despite a rib injury, Adrian Jeffries scored an impressive 4 goals and had 2 assists. Leo Barakos scored 2 goals including a fast break where he went coast to coast for an outstanding goal. Grant Jackson and Vinny Gladden scored 1 goal each with assists coming from Nathan Brickman and Jack Thoren. The Don’s offense took a total of 38 shots in last night’s game, 8 of which resulted in goals and 31 of which were either slighty off, hit cage or stopped by the MC goalie (who did have a very impressive game).

The Don’s defense battled hard, as they always do! Josh Baginski, Sam deRoque, Glenn Johnston, Vinny Gladden, Brian Maiken and Cole Tanner led in recovering ground balls and forcing MC turnovers.

Nate Welcomer had 10 sweet saves.

The Dons end the season with a winning record of 18 to 5. They are ranked 4th in North Coast CIF and ranked 32nd in California (LAXPOWER). They were also UNDEFEATED in DFAL and beat Campo not once, not twice, but three times. Overall it was an incredible season for the Dons!
