September 22nd – Girl’s Volleyball – JV

In their first League match, Acalanes JV Girls Volleyball lost to Miramonte,
25-17, 25-20.  The team fought hard with kills by Sarah Rogers, Rachael Cox,
Danielle Grobeck, and Amy Thomas.  Service aces were provided by Julia
Amaral, Joanna Harnish and Cox.   A tight back row led by Ainsley Blandford
and defensive blocks by Grobeck and Jen Lincoln, kept the game a battle of
equals, but in the end, the Mats came out on top.  Next, the Lady Dons play
Campolindo on Thursday, September 24 at Campolindo.

September 15th – Girl’s Volleyball – JV

JV Girls Volleyball Beats Berean Christian.

Acalanes JV Girls Volleyball added another victory to their list by
defeating Berean Christian on Tuesday, 25-15, 25-17.   In the first game,
the Dons took an early lead with a nice run of serves by Joanna Harnish.
While both teams traded points, Acalanes never lost the advantage.  Able
defense by Ainsley Blandford, and Sara Rogers kept the Eagles at bay.
Blocks by Rachael Cox, Danielle Grobeck and Amy Thomas made for a tight
defensive wall.  Kills by Cox and Thomas as well as service aces by Rogers,
Harnish and Jen Lincoln offered up stellar offense.  Berean Christian did
not go quietly, however, and the long rallies made for parental stress.  At
24-15, the two teams battled for an extended time, but the Dons kept a tight
line and, with a serve by Lincoln and tip in by Cox, the game ended.

Game two saw the Eagles upping their game.  Points were close throughout the
first half of the set with the Dons hustling to keep the lead.  Service Aces
were provided by Blair Howard, Sophia Takashima, Julia Amaral and Cox;
blocks and kills by Natalie Goepel, Grobeck, Cox and Takashima.  The Eagles
did keep the Dons on their toes with some aggressive offense, but saves by
Josie Mueller and Amaral denied any extra points for the challenger.  A six
point service run by Takashima ended the game at 25-17.
