The end of the season may be coming near, but the Acalanes Dons Freshman Girls Volleyball team keeps bringing the heat with another victory, this time against Miramonte, beating their cross-town rivals in two sets, 25-8, 25-17.  Game one was all about offense, including a ten-point service run by Alta Paladino.  When the serve was returned, kills by Dana Piercy, Janine Jaber, Taylor Odom and Katie McCarty fed from sets by Dory Grobeck, shut the Mats down quickly.  Ying Stroebe, fresh from being named Most Valuable Player at the St.Patrick-St. Vincent tournament, led defense with skilled passing and quick digs.   Dons take the first game, 25-8.

October 28 – JV Football – Acalanes rolls over Dublin 42-6

The Dons put together another strong performance this week. The offense, defense and special teams did the job again. The Dublin Gaels were overmatched from the beginning, being held to a 3-and-out on their first possession. The Dons mounted a successful drive for a touchdown on their first possession and it was all downhill for the Gaels from then on. A shutout was held until the 3rd quarter when the Gaels scored a touchdown, but the extra point attempt was blocked. The Dons were dominant again, pushing their season record to 7-2. Up next, the Las Lomas Knights in the final game of the season. GO DONS!
