Acalanes Freshman Girls Volleyball vs Northgate
The team started off a little slow in the second game….likely because superfan Katie Sowarby broke with superstition and forced the parents to switch ends of the bleachers. The Dons stabilized on a Lyla Cox kill followed by a couple of nice saves from libero Sydney Sowarby and another block from the right side. However, the Broncos put together a strong run despite some spirited parent chants led by father-of-the-year candidate Mark Passalacqua, and took the second game.
The pivotal third game started off better for the Dons as strong passing from Maren and Daisy and a nice serving run from Chloe Wu gave the Dons the lead. A kill from Lyla off a perfect Bella Draper set put the squad up 11-8 and ended a run for Northgate. The team finished strong, highlighed by a great bump set from Sydney after Megan was forced to dig, which led to a Lauren kill, and a nice up from Chloe that Samantha scrambled to keep out of the net and in play. The match, and the season, ended with Lauren stuffing an over pass for the win. Celebrity Doctor and statistician Alan Go was “happy to see our Lady Dons finish off both a terrific victory!” Good match and great season Dons!
