The boys volleyball team is the North Coast Section Champions.  They went to Northgate HS and pulled out a very close victory 25-21, 29-27, 26-28 and 25-23.  They advance to the CIF NorCal playoffs beginning Tuesday.

The boys lacrosse team played extremely well against a very good Marin Academy HS team in a thriller of a match. The Dons were up 1-0 after the first period, 3-2 after the third period and were leading 4-3 in the fourth. Marin Academy tied it up 4-4 with 1:44 to play. Marin then scored the winning goal with only 4 seconds left in the match.  Acalanes ends an outstanding season as the NCS Championship Runner-up.

The girls lacrosse team gave Miramonte HS all they could handle, but fell short 6-10.  Their stellar season ends well as NCS Championship Runner-up. The Dons got off to a hot start but then the Mats started chipping away swinging the momentum at half time up 7-5.  It was defense that won it for the Mats with a game of keep-away for the last 12 minutes of the game.  The girls celebrated their successful 18-7 season with post-game antics on the field!  Way to go Lady Dons!

Girls lacrosse photos will be posted on Maxpreps

The baseball team ended the regular season with a victory over Alhambra HS 4-2 as they prepare for the NCS playoffs next week.  The JV team also won 7-3.

The biggest victory came from the #5 seeded boys volleyball team in five games over perennial power and #1 seeded Campolindo HS in the NCS semifinals.  The Cougars won the first and third games, but the Dons battled back in the second and fourth to force game five.  The Dons found themselves down 12-8 and on the brink of elimination when they mounted the incredible rally outscoring their opponent 10-4 to post a stunning game five victory 18-16.  They not only advance to the Championship game, but they qualify for the CIF NorCal playoffs.  The Championship game is at Northgate HS Thursday at 7:00.

Girls Lacrosse

The #2 seeded girls lacrosse team led off the evening’s semifinal action with a rematch against #3 Piedmont HS.  The Dons were in control the entire game and recorded an identical 13-10 victory to advance to the NCS championship game.  The Championship game is at Miramonte HS at 7:00. It’s been four years since the Lady Dons have played in the championship game so come support the girls and cheer them on!

Boys Lacrosse

The #2 seeded boys lacrosse team overcame a slow start in the first half against #3 Miramonte HS and exploded in the third quarter to cruise to a 16-9 victory.  The Championship game is against Marin Academy HS at Marin Catholic HS at 5:30.
