The Acalanes swim team hosted Miramonte on Friday.  It was Senior Night for the Dons and 18 seniors were recognized. Some notable 1st place performances by JV and Varsity swimmers were the women’s V. 200 medley relay (McCarthy, Suppiger, Lo, Hagglund); Lauren Etnyre in V. 200 free & 100 free; Will Nagle in V. 200 & 100 free; Jake Stone in V. 50 free; Dean Goodson in JV 50 fly; Emily Lo V. 100 fly & 100 breast; Men’s V. 200 free relay (Parker, Winther, McNally, Stone); Nick Davidson V. 100 back. The last race was the most exciting of the day watching men’s V 400 free relay with Jake Stone, Trevor McNally, Bennett Winther and Will Nagle.  The Dons and Mats were neck and neck for 300 yards until young freshman Will Nagle swam an amazing anchor leg to send the Mats crying back to Orinda.
