Mar 19 – Swimming

The Acalanes Men’s and Women’s Swim Team lost a tightly contested battle to a strong Dougherty Valley Thursday night. Despite the loss, the Dons (both Men/Women 2-1) received stellar performances from many of it’s team members, including two wins from freshman Emily Lo in the 200 I.M. (2:07.78) and 100 butterfly (59.32). Also notching an event win was Brittany Usinger in the 100 freestyle (54.06). Usinger, a senior, will be swimming at Harvard University in the Fall. On the men’s side, some standout performances included junior Dusan Ivanovic winning the 100 bufferfly (55.70) and senior Jack Avery winning the 100 backstroke (1:00.22).
Next up for the Dons is the Mission Viejo Invitational (Saturday, March 28). They return to DFAL action Thursday, April 9, at Campolindo.
