Mar 8 – Las Lomas Track Results

This was our first league meet of the season, and all four divisions were winners.  This was also our third meet of the year, and we saw 70 season best, and 35 personal records.  It is a tribute to these athletes that they are working hard at getting better.

As a group the shot and disc were on fire. Just about everyone had a PR or a season best. In the girls 400 and 200, Muppy Gragg came from behind twice to catch the state qualifier (in 400). Emily Sverak keeps improving from week to week. Ryan Nall, two weeks out from basketball, threw two PR’s. Keaziah Smith also PR’d in the 200 with 23.46 in his first time running the race! Two of most impressive performances of the year were by Carson Etnyre in the 400, and Owen McNamara 13″ in pole vault.

Mar 9 – JV Boys Lacrosse win in OT

The men’s JV lacrosse team pulled out a thrilling OT win at Piedmont to improve to 3-0.

Piedmont took an early 3-0 lead in the first quarter.  A very fast team, Piedmont scored mostly on fast breaks where they had numbers.  In the second quarter each team scored a goal and Piedmont led 4-1 at halftime.

In the second half, Acalanes scored 3 unanswered goals and trailed 5-6 in the final minutes.  With 30 seconds to go, Jefferey Novak scrambled around right on the crease and squeezed in a goal to tie the game and send it to OT.

Piedmont won the first face off but The Dons badgering defense made them cough it up and led to a fast break.  Solid goalie play by Piedmont saved a wide open shot forcing the Acalanes defense to hold again.  On the next possession, The Dons offense settled and moved the ball around. Riley Ketcham found Renn Strandberg on a cut across the middle for the game winner!

The men showed a great deal of determination despite being down by 3 goals at half.  They look to keep their undefeated streak going this Tuesday at home vs. College Park at 5:30 pm.
