Apr 19 – Boys Volleyball

Boys Volleyball

extended their win streak Wednesday night, knocking off a powerful Bentley (19-3) squad in one of the closest matches they’ve had to date. A great group of Dons fans came out to
cheer the boys to victory over their cross-town rivals.

The Dons stole the first set 26-24 before losing their way in the second set and giving it up 16-25. The boys pulled together for a 25-20 3rd set win before again letting Bentley back in it to take the 4th 22-25. The final set was a fight with the 2 teams tied much of the way before Acalanes pulled ahead to seal the win 16-14 in the final set.

The Dons are enjoying their best record ever at 20-3 – a notable feat considering just 3 years ago they won only 1 game all season. The team is anchored by 5 starting seniors: Brad Altbaum, Connor McCarthy, Bijan Shahabi, Carter Smith and Nick Smyrnios and sophomore Colin Kirbach with key contributions each game from Alex Franke, Ethan Browne and more from the bench making this season a story of true team effort.

Coming up: Dons host CV Thurs at 6pm, travel Fri for SRV tournament and DON’T MISS next week’s big game vs. Campo @ Campo, Weds 4/26 6pm. Come on out and support your Dons!
