The Dons are surging after beating their two Lamorinda rivals last week. On Tuesday night at home, the Dons took down Miramonte, 58-56 and on Friday night in Moraga, the Dons knocked-off Campolindo, 49-44. I am not sure when the last time the Acalanes Boys Varsity Basketball team has pulled off the season sweep of Campolindo. The Acalanes 6th Man travelled up to Campolindo and was loud and energetic throughout the game. When the final buzzer rang, The 6th Man rushed the court to celebrate with the team. It was a great scene. But what made the day even sweeter for the Acalanes Boys Basketball Program last Friday, it was a clean sweep by all Dons teams. The Boy’s Freshman Team, JV Team and Varsity Team all beat Campolindo that day.
At halftime of the Boys Varsity game tonight, there will be a celebration for our State Champions – the Acalanes Girls Varsity Volleyball Team.
