CALLING ALL ACALANES SENIOR RECRUITED STUDENT ATHLETES
On Thursday, May 24, at lunchtime, Acalanes Boosters is proud to present a celebration of Acalanes’ talented, hard-working student-athletes who have been recruited to play their sports in college (Division I, II or III) while continuing their educations.
Local media, parents, friends, AHS students, and the community are ALL invited. There will be a group question and answer session, photo and interview opportunities, and other fun.
If your son or daughter has been recruited to play an intercollegiate sport in college next year and he or she has committed to play, please contact Jennifer Larson for more information so we can include them in the celebration. Your student-athlete does not have to play a sport that Acalanes offers, but the sport must be an intercollegiate sport (not club sport) at the school your student-athlete will attend.
In Tuesday’s action…
Everyone was a winner.
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.
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!
