May 3 – Special Boys LAX Senior Sendoff!
It was a fun night celebrating the Seniors on Tuesday as they played their last home game of the regular season against Alhambra. The Don’s Lacrosse Team has 13 players graduating this year – they will all be sorely missed:
Congratulations and Good Luck Seniors! Daniel Agazzi, Leo Barakos, Jackson Birdsall, Nathan Brickman, Tyler Henderson, Miles Hoeser, Grant Jackson, Glenn Johnston, Nathan Lee, Brian Maiken, Luke Olson, Tate Phillips and Jack Thoren.
The Don’s took home a victory by storming past Alhambra with a final score of 15 to 3. Despite the fact that Alhambra scored the first goal of the game, it was all Dons the entire first half with 7 goals scored in a row by Acalanes. Alhambra was able to put 2 more goals on the board in the 2nd half, but were never able to come close to the 8 more goals scored by the Dons.
Glenn Johnston and Brian Maiken were once again the Dynamic Defensive Duo forcing 11 turnovers between the two of them and recovering a total of 4 ground balls. Joey Gladden had an impressive 7 ground ball recoveries and forced 1 turnover. Beniam Huff won 75% of his face-offs.
