The Acalanes Girls JV Team played Las Lomas at home and enjoyed a straight-set victory 25-10, 25-21.

Acalanes finished out the first set 25-10 with a strong serving run by Kaitlyn McKendall that included several aces.
In the second set, the pace slowed down and the teams traded the lead as they were tied 13-13 halfway through the set. After a couple of errors, the Dons found themselves down 13-17 which prompted a time out. After a quick side out, Acalanes was able to tie the match 17-17 behind effective serving from Elsa Clever. The Dons then got behind again 20-21 but refocused and buckled down in their passing and defense and were able to close out the set 25-21 and win the match.
Acalanes is now 7-1 in league play and 15-3 overall for the season. Go Dons!!
