Jan 12 – Boys Basketball Season Opener Update

December was a busy month for Boys Varsity Basketball. They won the San Rafael Classic Tournament, beating the home team, San Rafael, on a Nick Price buzzer beater ”tip in”. Congrats to Ian Archer who was named MVP!

Boys Varsity also won the El Cerrito Tournament. The trip to the finals was hard fought, coming back from 7 point deficit with only 40 seconds to go, they sent it into OT and eventually beating Vanden in semi-finals and crosstown rivals Campolindo in the finals 63-60. Gavin Shipp was MVP and Aidan Mcnamara was all-tournament team.

Boys Varsity has earned two runner-up finishes in the Amador Valley Tourney (lost to Las Lomas) and Chris Huber Classic (lost to Riordan). Entering league play with a 12-4 record and #2 ranking in D2 NCS.

The boys are fired up for their first league game on Friday against Campolindo! Lets go Dons!

Dec 19 – Girls Basketball

Girls Basketball

The Lady Dons went on the road Tuesday night and recorded a 76 to 43 victory over Vacaville. It was the girls highest scoring game of the season, as the transition game and ball movement were firing on all cylinders. Kaylee Pond was dominant on both sides of the floor with a triple-double. The scoring was balanced with Lauren Frechman leading the way with 19, Gabby Schneider with 18, Lauren Kobishgawa had 15, Kaylee Pond with 14 and Grace Gebhardt with 8. Sydney Louie was a standout on the defensive side of the ball with constant pressure on the Vacaville guards. With the victory the girls improved to 8 and 1 on the season. Next up is Mission of San Francisco Thursday night at home.
