HEADS OR TAILS – SANTA ROSA STYLE

 

Just six months ago, wildfires raged through the Wine Country upending the lives of thousands. Who can forget the images of the devastation inflicted on the Coffey Park neighborhood in Santa Rosa? Calls have gone out to support the affected communities, and The Acalanes Boosters Club is responding. This year’s Heads or Tails hotel property features The Sandman in Santa Rosa with its cool retro vibe, re-imagined in new and innovative ways.

With the convenience of a roadside inn and the character of a vibrant Wine Country hotel, The Sandman invites guests to experience the best of Sonoma County. Within the walls, you can be certain of the following: the art is local, the service is warm, and the amenities are thoughtful.

The Sandman is a place for everyone. Whether you’re a road tripper, a savvy business traveler, or an ardent explorer, we welcome you to Santa Rosa. Our motor lodge, a modern throwback inspired by the Spanish Mission Revival buildings found throughout the state, offers a certain peaceful simplicity—plus a few surprises. $500 gift certificate.

If you don’t play, you can’t win! How to play? For an entry of $25, you can participate by purchasing a Dons blue bracelet. We’ll play Heads or Tails just before the live auction. Come on up, and place your hands on your head or your tail to indicate your choice. When the coin is flipped and your call is correct, you stay in the game. Last one standing wins!

Thank you to the Acalanes Boosters Club Officers

In past March and April weekend action …

 

These past two weekends the Acalanes track and Field Team competed at the Stanford Invitational and the Arcadia Invitational. At Stanford Invitational, colleges and high schools compete at the same event, but it is actually two different meets at the same event. The Arcadia Invitational is a high school meet only, but attracts the best talent in the country and outside. This year we had a very limited number of entries in both of these meets largely due to the fact that the meets were during spring break and due to injuries.

At Stanford, Ryan Nall competed in the Shot and Discus, Johnny Choi in the HJ, Muppy Gragg, Mikalea Troung, Emily Sverak and Mari Florine in the 4 x 400, and Emily Sverak, Scarlette McCullough, Beth Hamalian and Mari Florine in the 4x 100.

Ryan threw a personal best of 148′ 1″ in the discus; the 4 x 100 ran a personal best for these four girls (and a season best for the 4 x 100) 51.50; and the 4 x 400 ran a season best of 4:05.72 with Mikaela running a PR split of 61, Emily running a SPR of 62 and Muppy running a SPR of 56.6. In the high jump Johnny cleared 6’2″.

Arcadia Invitational is a two day meet but is like four meets in one. On Friday and Saturday they have the multi events where the boys compete in the decathlon and girls in the heptathlon. These events are not sanctioned by CIF, specifically the javelin, so this event is run by USA Track and Field Officials and not high school officials. Then there is the Friday night meet which consist mostly of relays of all kinds. The Saturday day meet is like an open invitational where they run three heats of everything and is a complete meet; and the Saturday night meet is strictly an invitational, and it is the best of the best that compete.

We had only two athletes at Arcadia, Johnny Choi in the high jump and he cleared 6’1 3/4; and Muppy Gragg in the heptathlon. Muppy competed in seven events over the two days. On Friday she competed in the 100 hurdles where she ran a personal best of 15.65; the high jump 5’1.75″; the shot put 28′; and the 200 where she ran a personal best of 25.26 (second on the all time leaderboard at Acalanes). On Saturday Muppy longed jump 17’6′; threw the javelin 78’5″ (which had to be competed off site due to CIF rules); and ran the 800M with a personal best of 2:18.65. In this event there were 16 athletes from California, Montana, Georgia, Canada, and Mexico.  Last year at this event Muppy finished 10th and scored 4190 points. This year Muppy scored 4632 points and finished 3rd.
