Apr 19 – Clayton Valley Track Results

Yesterday we competed at Clayton Valley (whose claim to fame is the worst football field in America; it is black). The Varsity Girls won the meet 80 to 54 (the spread would have been even greater had Devin Grobeck and Imani Boggan competed – both were out due to illness). The Varsity Girls are are the league division champions. To become League Champions the girls must win the league championship meet May 6th and 13th at Campo. Their main competitor will be Miramonte.

The Varsity Boys lost to Clayton Valley 71 to 64. That is a four point differential – one second place instead a third place or one first instead of a second, and we would have won. It was that close. The boys finished second in the division with a 3-1 record, and their competition at the league championships will again be Clayton Valley.

Both the girls and boys competed well. We had 71 PR’s or season best by 47 individual athletes. The two top performances of the meet were by Muppy Gragg and Ryan Nall. Muppy improved on the third best all-time 400M with 57.91, running into a strong headwind and winning by 40 yards as she and Imani Boggan are on a quest to become the all-time best in that event. Ryan stepped up big time and outperformed Clayton’s Valley’s league leading shot putter with a PR of 46 feet.

Apr 19 – Boys Volleyball

Boys Volleyball

extended their win streak Wednesday night, knocking off a powerful Bentley (19-3) squad in one of the closest matches they’ve had to date. A great group of Dons fans came out to
cheer the boys to victory over their cross-town rivals.

The Dons stole the first set 26-24 before losing their way in the second set and giving it up 16-25. The boys pulled together for a 25-20 3rd set win before again letting Bentley back in it to take the 4th 22-25. The final set was a fight with the 2 teams tied much of the way before Acalanes pulled ahead to seal the win 16-14 in the final set.

The Dons are enjoying their best record ever at 20-3 – a notable feat considering just 3 years ago they won only 1 game all season. The team is anchored by 5 starting seniors: Brad Altbaum, Connor McCarthy, Bijan Shahabi, Carter Smith and Nick Smyrnios and sophomore Colin Kirbach with key contributions each game from Alex Franke, Ethan Browne and more from the bench making this season a story of true team effort.

Coming up: Dons host CV Thurs at 6pm, travel Fri for SRV tournament and DON’T MISS next week’s big game vs. Campo @ Campo, Weds 4/26 6pm. Come on out and support your Dons!
