Oct 26 – Girls JV Tennis vs. Miramonte

Miramonte 10 – Acalanes 4

The Lady Mats got revenge for our earlier stomping by spoiling our last match of the year 10-4. Despite the loss, the JV Lady Dons can claim the Diablo Athletic League JV Girls Tennis title for the Foothill Division. We finished our league season with a record of 8 wins, 1 loss and 1 tie. Thanks to a Las Lomas win over Miramonte, all of the other teams in the Foothill Division have two losses. Thus, we complete the season ½ game ahead of the Mats and a full game ahead of Campo.

Today’s highlights for the Lady Dons were at the top, middle and bottom of the lineup.

As they did all season Lauren Craig and Shannon McVay faced the opponent’s D-1 duo. Shannon and Lauren dispatched their Miramonte foes 8-4 in tightly contested match. Playing extended points, switching multiple times during extended rallies, Shannon and Lauren covered the court well and secured a fine Acalanes win.

Skyler DeMartini and Niki Palamountain ended their JV careers as they began three years ago with a Lady Dons win. Niki and Skyler took control of their line early and played their fine, aggressive brand of tennis on their way to an 8-2 triumph at D-2. A nice way to end their JV careers.

In the middle of the lineup at D-6 Naomi “Nomi” Berkowitz and Audrey Glosson played a close, competitive match before emerging victorious 8-6. Audrey and Naomi communicated effectively while playing a number of extended points on their way to a fine win.

In the final match of the day at D-12, Sofia Swatt teamed with D-2 Sophia Scipi to play a match against the Miramonte D-12 and D-2 players. In a match shortened due to time, a tiebreaker was played at 7-7. Having played well as a team during the first 14 games, Sofia and Sophia dug in and played a really exciting tiebreak. The 7-5 win in the tiebreak earned the SoFPHias the final LD point of the day 8-7.

Congratulations to all of the Lady Dons on a terrific tennis season.

Oct 26 – Girls Tennis vs. Miramonte

Oct 20 – Girls JV Tennis

Acalanes 9 – Campolindo 6
In a really spirited and hard fought match, the Acalanes Lady Dons bested our rival Campolindo Cougars 9-6. Playing a six singles, nine doubles format, Acalanes won the singles’ lines 4-2 and the doubles’ lines 5-4.

Junior captain Maggie Curless earned the first Lady Dons’ point with a fine 8-2 win at S-4. Maggie served well and her deep groundstrokes kept her Cougar opponent on the defensive.

Skyler DeMartini and Niki Palamountain rolled to an 8-4 win at D-2. Niki finally accepted Skyler’s analysis that her sixth grade racquet was broken. Playing with the coach’s stick, Niki volleyed well while Skyler played her fine all court game.

Junior captain Jess Gerson, playing singles for the first time this season, brought home a fine 8-5 win at S-3. Jess served effectively and recovered quickly to maintain her court position and keep her opponent off balance.

Milena Lucey and Sophia Cooper squandered a 5-0 lead but recovered to record an 8-7 win at D-2. Milena contends that she and Sophia let Campo back into the set because they wanted Milena’s late-arriving grandparents to see a competitive match. While we want to build our fan base, the coaches are not generally supportive of this approach.

In the most competitive doubles match of the day, Shannon McVay and Lauren Craig played a 90-minute marathon before garnering an Acalanes point 8-5. Playing at D-1, Lauren and Shannon were very evenly matched with the #1 Campo duo. Lauren and Shannon communicated very well, switched numerous times during extended points and covered the court with great ability.

Scarlett Reicher, playing at S-5, showed nerves of steel in holding on to secure an 8-7 win. Scaarlett served well and engaged her Cougar counterpart in a number of extended rallies in a really fine match.

Vivi McGinnisTingle and Anika Mohanty, playing at D-6 notched a well-earned victory by the score of 8-5. Both Anika and Vivi played a number of winning groundstrokes and volleys on their way to grabbing an important point for the Lady Dons. Anika and Vivi both fearlessly charged the net to put away winners.

Maren “Quesadilla” Quintella clinched the Lady Dons overall victory with a terrific 8-5 win at S-6. Maren played really focused, all court tennis while placing her serves effectively. Quesadilla maintained her poise throughout her match and brought home the deciding point with a flourish.

Naomi “Nomie” Berkowitz and Audrey Glosson played consistently fine tennis on their way to an 8-4 win. Audrey and Nomie got out to an early lead and refused to let their opponents get into the match by holding serve in their last four service games.

It was a good day for the Lady Dons at Campo.

Acalanes 6 – Las Lomas 5

On Tuesday, at the request of Las Lomas, we played a four singles, seven doubles format for the first time this season. To accommodate the Las Lomas request,, Molly Cronk, Sophia Scipi, Scarlett Reicher and Maren Quintella stepped up to fill singles lines. In a real team effort, the Lady Dons split the singles lines, 2-2 and carried the doubles lines 4-3 to take home a 6-5 Acalanes win.

Playing at S-3, Scarlett Reicher scored the first Dons’ point by besting her Las Lomas opponent 8-6. Scarlett played solidly with effective ground strokes and timely rushes to the net.

Sophia Scipi secured the second Lady Dons’ point by playing a terrific match at S-2. Getting down early in the match, Sophia played tenaciously and earned a 9-7 victory.

The Acalanes doubles teams were led by Shannon McVay and Lauren Craig at D-1. Covering the court extremely well and communicating switches effectively, Lauren and Shannon won going away at 8-2.

Playing together for the first time this season, Skyler DeMartini and Maggie Curless teamed at D-2. Maggie and Skyler meshed well and hung an 8-0 bagel on the Las Lomas distaff Knights.

Also playing in their first match together, Katie Hale and Anya Weinstein won 8-2 at D-4. Katie overcame early serving woes and Anya played her solid all-court game throughout the match.

Alyssa Armanino and Katie Bishop at D-6 won the all-important sixth Acalanes point. Katie and Alyssa seized control of their match early and kept the pressure on the Las Lomas noblewomen on their way to a resounding 8-2 triumph.

In terms of team effort, Lynn Wolfe was called upon to play two matches, partnering Sofia Swatt and Daniella Yadegar in competitive matches. Eunkyu Lee and Leah Douglas played a fine final match that was shortened to a six game format due to time concerns. Leah and Eunkyu pushed their opponents to a seventh game.

Oct 17 – Girls JV Tennis

The Lady Dons’ return to College Park was successful. Playing all of the available Acalanes JV teams, the Lady Dons dispatched the Falcons 11-3. Playing a mixed varsity-JV squad from College Park, the JV Lady Dons played well up and down our lineup to secure the win. Our first four lines played the College Park varsity two through five double teams and split with them 2-2.

Using a 10-point pro set format, Katie Hale and Sally Tang notched the first Acalanes’ point of the day with a 10-1 win at D-7. Both Sally and Katie served well as they maintained their focus on their way to victory

As they did last Thursday, Vivi McGinnis-Tingle and Anika Mohanty secured the second Lady Dons point with a fine 10- 3 win at D-8. Vivi and Anika also took control early in the match and did not look back.

Molly Cronk and Sophia Scipi had the unique experience of facing a kick serve at D-3. Playing a varsity duo, Molly and Sophia made the necessary adjustments to their service returns and rolled to a 10-6 win.

Captains Maggie Curless and Jess Gerson played a fine competitive match against another varsity line at D-4. Maggie and Jess were very evenly matched and played a number of extended points on their way to a well-earned 10-7 victory.

Although by Audrey Glosson’s own admission that “it was not her day,” she and Naomi Berkowitz overcame a slow start came through with a 10-6 win. Naomi and Audrey eliminated their unforced errors to overcome an early 3-5 deficit.

Milena Lucey and Sophia Cooper after building up and early 7-2 lead hung on for a 10-7 victory. Although Milena did not recognize the name “Maria Sharapova” during a stirring coaching talk, she and Sophia played well down the stretch to earn an Acalanes point.

Siena Marchiano and Anya Weinstein at D-9 recorded the deciding win of the day. Anya overcame some early serving difficulties, while Siena cracked winners at the net and mid-court as the overall Acalanes triumph was secured by the score of 10-4. Siena sealed the deal with a fine down the line winner at match point.

Maren Quintella and Scarlett Reicher recorded the only “bagel” or “goose egg” of the day by running off a 10-0 shut out at D-10. Maren placed her serves effectively and Scarlett handled the net extremely well throughout the match.

Alyssa Armanino and Katie Bishopp maintained their focus and notched a back-to-back win over their College Park opponents 10-1.  Jumping out to an early lead Katie and Alyssa kept the pressure on the Falcons all the way to the end of their D-11 match.

Although Emily Erce was not feeling 100% during her match, she and Sofia Swatt refused to lose at D-12. Sofia and Emily jumped out to an early lead and did not give their opponents an opening on the way to a 10-1 win.

Sally Tang “doubled back” and partnered Daniella Yadegar at D-13. As they have in past matches Daniella and Sally covered the court well and communicated effectively on their way to a 10-4 victory. Sally was playing in her 25th game of the afternoon when she and Daniella closed out a successful Lady Dons afternoon.

All of the Lady Dons competed well against varsity and JV lines at College Park.

Acalanes 7 – College Park 1

After being locked down at Acalanes in the morning, the JV Lady Dons locked down the College Park Falcons 7-1 on their courts in the afternoon.

Naomi Berkowitz and Anya Weinstein recorded the first Acalanes point of the day with an 8-0 shut out. Naomi and Anya partnered for only the second time this season and notched their second win playing at D-2.

Vivi McGinnis-Tingle and Anika Mohanty secured the second Lady Dons point also came by way of the shut out, winning 8-0 at D-4. Vivi playing through a sore wrist teamed effectively with Anika to control the net. Both Anika and Vivi played a number of terrific volley winners.

At D-2, Niki Palamountain and Skyler DeMartini faced the College Park varsity D-2 team and defeated the Falcons 8-6. Niki and Skyler covered the court well hit some fine angle volleys for winners.

Lynn Wolfe and Eunkyu Lee teamed at D-6 to run off a convincing 8-2 win. Both Lynn and Eunkyu served well and took control of the net on a number of points on their way to an Acalanes victory.

The deciding point of the day was locked down by Sally Tang and Daniella Yadegar. Playing at D-7, Daniella and Sally took control of their match early and did not relent. Sally served consistently well and Daniella played effectively at the net throughout their match.

Maren Quintella and Sophia Cooper played the most hotly contested match of the day. Teaming at D-6 for the first time this season, Sophia and Maren played an extraordinary number of long points, beginning with the first point of the match. On their way to a hard fought 8-5 win, Maren and Sophia communicated and covered the court really well. Although there were a large number of long, difficult points, the Lady Dons displayed great sportsmanship throughout the match.

Playing at D-8, Alyssa Armanino and Katie Bishopp got off to a slow start going down 1-3 to a less talented Falcon duo. While the Falcon team did not put much pace on their shots, they jumped to an early lead on Acalanes duo. Katie and Alyssa realized that they were making too many unforced errors and determined to improve their game. Maintaining their focus, they stepped up their games and closed out the match with a fine 8-4 win. Both Katie and Alyssa showed great mental toughness.

Acalanes 4 – Northgate 3

In a very competitive match, the JV Lady Dons earned a 4-3 victory over Northgate High Tuesday afternoon on the Acalanes courts. Unlike the Giants, the JV Lady Dons closed the contest with a late inning win in the last match.

As they have throughout the season, Skyler DeMartini and Niki Palamountain recorded the first Acalanes point. Niki and Skyler started strong and jumped to a 5-0 lead when one of their Northgate opponents strained her knee and was forced to retire. In a display of good sportsmanship, Niki and Skyler went to the Acalanes training room to get an ice pack for the injured Northgate player.

Milena Lucey and Sophia Cooper playing at D-2 got off to a slow start. After getting down 3-6, Milena and Sophia did not lose another game. They ran off five straight games to secure a well-deserved 8-6 win.

Sophia Scipi and Molly Cronk played a tight, back and forth match before they secured a service break that carried them to an 8-6 win. Molly and Sophia communicated effectively and played consistently fine points on their way to evening the match at 3-3.

Katie Hale and Sally Tang put the Lady Dons over the top with a fine 8-4 win in the final match of the day. Playing well together at D-7, Sally and Katie took control of the match early and led wire to wire. Both Lady Dons served consistently on their way to the crucial fourth point of the day.

All of the Acalanes lines and competed hard in a well-played match. Our record stands at 9 wins, 1 loss and 1 tie overall and 4 – 0 – 1 in DAL play.

Oct 6 – Girls JV Tennis

In a really competitive match at Miramonte, the Lady Dons Stomped the Mats 7-4. Our record improves to 8 wins 1 loss and 1 tie overall and 3-0-1 in DAL play.

As they have in earlier matches, Sophia Cooper and Milena Lucey drew first blood with an 8-3 win at D-5. Sophia patrolled the backcourt with some great “gets” and solid ground strokes while Milena put away a number of winners at the net.

Junior captains Maggie Curless and Jess Gerson playing at D-3 were solid and communicated effectively to secure an 8-5 victory. Maggie continued our tradition of winning with coaching staff-installed overgrip. The LDs are 3-0 with new overgrip.

Sophomores Naomi Berkowitz and Anya Weinstein teamed for the first time this season and recorded a fine 8-5 win at D-6. Anya continued her strong service game and Naomi showed great hands by converting a number of tough volleys at the net.

The sophomore winning streak continued with Vivi McGinnis-Tingle and Anika Mohanty also recording an 8-5 win at D-8. Anika and Vivi communicated well and covered the court effectively throughout the match.

At D-11, Sofia Swatt and Emily Erce rolled to an 8-4 win with Sofia playing a number of fine volleys and Emily firing a number of winners down the Miramonte alleys.

Katie Bishopp and Alyssa Armanino racked up the deciding point of the match at D-10 by the score of 8-5. Faced with questionable line calls, Katie and Alyssa maintained their composure and requested line judges at 2-2 for the balance of their match.  Both Lady Dons competed well under difficult circumstances.

Scarlett Reicher and Maren Quintella put icing on the cake of the Acalanes victory with an 8-4 win at D-9. This match also required linespersons to ensure accurate calls. Scarlett maintained her focus and overcame an early service break due to really difficult sun conditions while Maren continued to run down seeming Miramonte winners and turn them into Dons’ points.

All of the Lady Dons lines played really fine competitive matches under difficult sun conditions. The courts at Miramonte are configured on an East-West axis. In the afternoon players on the east side of the net are looking directly into the setting sun. The Lady Dons handled this well, in part by sharing hats and visors, on their way to a fine team win.

Oct 5 – Girls JV Tennis vs Campolindo

The JV Lady Dons played to a tie with Campolindo this afternoon splitting 10 doubles lines 5-5.

Our D-4 team of Milena Lucey and Sophia Cooper recorded the first Acalanes point. In the most one-sided match of the day, Sophia and Milena led throughout their match on the way to an 8-3 win.

Captains Maggie Curless and Jess Gerson got into a 1-4 at D-2 hole before they stopped digging and took control of their match winning the next seven games. Maggie and Jess played solidly after their rocky start and covered the court really well.

At D-3, Niki Palamountain and Skyler DeMartini had to go to 9-7 before getting by their tough Campo opponents. Once again a timely change of overgrip by the Acalanes coaching staff turned the match around. Down 4-6 when Niki lost control of her racquet and requested a new overgrip, Skyler and Niki dug in and played tenaciously for an Acalanes win.

Sophia Scipi and Molly Cronk played the match of the day at D-1. Initially down 1-4, the Lady Dons began attacking down the alley, but still found themselves down 3-6 to a Campo team that was really tough at the net. From 3-6, Molly and Sophia refused to lose and ran off the last four games, three of them going to the sudden-death deuce point.

Alyssa Armanino and Katie Bishopp won the point that secured the Acalanes tie at D-10. Playing effectively and communicating well, Alyssa and Katie overcame an early 3-4 deficit and came home with an 8-5 victory.

All of our lines competed hard today against our rivals from Campo. We are on the road tomorrow at Miramonte

Sep 29 – Girls JV Tennis

Acalanes 9 – Las Lomas 1
The JV Lady Dons recorded a 9-1 win over Las Lomas in our first full DAL match.

Playing at D-3 Niki Palamountain and Skyler DeMartini scored the first Dons point by playing consistently aggressive tennis on their way to an 8-2 win. Niki got her serve under control after a shaky start and Skyler controlled the net throughout the match.

Audrey Glosson and Naomi Berkowitz cruised to an 8-0 shutout at D-5. While Audrey’s “shovel scoop” lob winner will not make the ESPN Top Ten, it was effective. Naomi served consistently well during the match.

An 8-0 shutout was also pitched by Milena Lucey and Sophia Cooper playing at D-6. Communicating effectively and keeping their opponents on the defensive, Milena and Sophia led wire to wire.

Molly Cronk and Sophia Scipi got off to their now-typical slow start but rallied effectively to rack up an 8-4 victory. Molly and Sophia played some really fine points and literally ran down a number of balls to stay in contested points. The coach’s installation of new overgrip on Molly’s racquet was certainly one of the keys to victory.

At D-2, Captains Jess Gerson and Maggie Curless played the most competitive match of the day having to climb out of a 1-4 hole before settling down and winning seven of the last eight games to secure an 8-5 victory and clinch the match for the Lady Dons. Jess and Maggie both served and returned serve well throughout the contest.

Anika Mohanty and Vivi McGinnisTingle, playing at D-7 took control of their match early and kept the pressure on Las Lomas as they ran off an 8-1 win.  Vivi and Anika communicated effectively and controlled the net on their way to victory.

Aanya Weinstein and Siena Marchiano played a fine match at D-8 and recorded an 8-3 win. Siena served consistently well and patrolled the net, while Anya ran down a number of balls and turned what looked like Las Lomas winners into Acalanes points.

Scarlett Reicher and Maren Quintella took control of their D-9 match early on and did not look back on their way to an 8-1 win. Scarlett played effectively at the net and Maren ran down a number of balls to keep the Lady Dons in points. (You can’t coach speed.)

Playing together for the first time in a match, Lynn Wolfe and Katie Hale rounded out the Acalanes scoring with an 8-2 win at D-10. Lynn played a number of winning volleys from her position at the net and Katie contributed a number of ground stroke winners in a well played match.

Our D-1 team of Shannon McVay and Lauren Craig played a really competitive match that saw a number of extended rallies and deuce games with Las Lomas recording a hard won 8-4 point.

The JV Lady Dons’ record is 6 – 1 overall; 2 – 0 in DAL play.

Sep 29 – Acalanes Girls Tennis barely squeaked by Las Lomas

Acalanes 3 – Northgate 1
Playing in our opening Diablo Athletic League match, the JV Lady Dons came away with a 3-1 win over Northgate High.

Lauren Craig and Shannon McVay played a really competitive match at D-1. Although it is a cliché to say that the match was closer than the score would indicate, in today’s action it was true. While Shannon and Lauren recorded an 8-1 win, they played a number of hotly contested points and games on their way to the first Dons’ win of the day.

At D-2, Captains Maggie Curless and Jess Gerson, took control of their match and played consistently well in recording our second point with an 8-2 win.

Teaming for the first time this season, Molly Cronk and Milena Lucey communicated effectively and covered the court well to secure an 8-2 win.

Lady Dons Niki Palamountain and Skyler DeMartini were matched against a team of Northgate varsity players, who “doubled back” to play a second match. Skyler and Niki competed well throughout.

Acalanes 5 – Salesian 0

The JV tennis team swept a scrimmage with Salesian High of Richmond 5-0.

Captains Maggie Curless and Jess Gerson recorded the first Lady Dons win with an 8-0 shutout at D-3. Maggie and Jess took control of the match early and maintained their focus throughout.

At D-1, Lauren Craig and Shannon McVay cruised to an 8-1 victory. Shannon served extremely well and Lauren put away a number of winners at the net.

The most competitive match of the day was again played by our D-2 combo of Sophia Scipi and Molly Cronk. Molly ran down a number of balls to keep points alive and Sophia’s ground strokes accounted for a number of clean winners in their 8-3 win.

Skyler DeMartini and Niki Palamountain, playing at D-4 also pitched a shutout by recording an 8-0 victory. Niki’s service returns kept Salesian backed up and Skyler served a number of aces on the way to the Acalanes win.

Playing in the final match of the day, Milena Lucey and Sophia Cooper maintained their focus against a mis-matched Salesian team. Salesian paired their one of their D-1 players with a beginner against Sophia and Milena. Often when playing an unskilled opponent you can lose your focus and have your game suffer. Sophia and Milena communicated effectively and maintained their focus all the way to an 8-1 win.

Acalanes 5 – Piedmont 4

Playing their third match in three days the JV Lady Dons rallied from behind to defeat a fine Piedmont High School team 5-4. Using the three set varsity format, four of the five Acalanes points were earned in third set tiebreakers.

Playing at D-3 Maggie Curless and Jess Gerson scored the first Lady Dons point by coming from one set down to win in a tiebreak. Even Jess and Maggie’s 10-point tie breaker went to overtime with the Lady Dons fighting through to an 11-9 win.

The D-6  sophomore-freshman combo of Milena Lucey and Sophia Cooper also went to a third set tiebreak before the Lady Dons closed out the match. In a match that saw momentum swing somewhat wildly, Sophia and Milena cruised to a first set win at 6-1 only to see Piedmont respond with a 6-0 bagel. Sophia and Milena, played solidly, took control of  the tiebreak and secured our second point by a 10-4 margin.

Skyler DeMartini and Niki Palamountain dropped the first set on their way to a 2-6, 6-4, 10-8 victory. Playing and communicating well, Niki and Skyler took advantage of aggressive net play by their Piedmont opponents and scored crucial points in the third set tiebreaker by going down the alley that Piedmont abandoned in trying to control the net.

Playing at D-9, Siena Marchiano and Anya Weinstein brought the Lady Dons even at 4-4 by racking up our only straight set victory of the day 6-2, 6-4. Anya again served effectively and Siena returned serve with great pace to keep their Piedmont opponents off balance throughout the match.

Playing in the final and deciding match of the day, Emily Erce and Sofia Swatt played an up and down match before winning their tiebreaker 10-7. Emily and Sofia played a solid first set winning 7-5, only to have Piedmont record their second bagel at 6-0. In the deciding set Emily and Sofia returned to their winning first set ways and secured the Acalanes overall match victory with a 10-7 win.

All of the Lady Dons’ llines competed hard and  maintained their composure against a well-coached Piedmont team that featured aggressive net play.

SEP 6- JV Girls Tennis

The JV Lady Dons ran into a hungry pack of Lady Wolves at San Ramon Valley High dropping our first road match 2-7. All of our lines played tenaciously under difficult conditions as the thermometer stayed in the low 90s throughout the match. We played the varsity format of best of three sets and every line competed and hard, making fine line calls in the best tradition of Acalanes tennis.

The two Lady Don wins came in virtually identitcal fashion with our teams going to a third set tie-breaker to achieve victory. Both Acalanes duos won their first set, dropped the second and re-grouped to win convincingly in the the third set tie break.

At D-2, Molly Cronk and Sophia Scipi broke through first by winning the first set 7-5, dropping the second 2-6 and rallying to win 10-5 in the third. Sophia served exceptionally well throughout and Molly controlled the net all afternoon, including the final volley for a winner.

Playing at D-4 Niki Palamountain and Skyler DeMartini got a service break to prevail 6-4 in the opening set, but then seemed to be hit by the heat, dropping a close second set 5-7. In the tie-breaker, Niki and Skyler reverted to their first set form and won going away at 10-6. Skyler’s hard first serve returned and Niki put away a number of winners en route to our second win of the day.

Both matches took a full two hours to complete, but were really fine examples of players digging in and supporting each other in difficult situations.

Playing a three-set mini-match against Carondelet High School, the JV Lady Dons delivered a 3-0 shut out.

Playing at JV line 1, Shannon McVay and Lauren Craig got the ball rolling with an 8-0 win. Communicating effectively and placing their shots effectively Lauren and Shannon took control of the match early and did not look back.

At JV-2, Molly Cronk and Sophia Scipi also got off to a fast start and maintained their lead throughout the match to record an 8-1 victory. Molly and Sophia were effective at the net  and played a number of winners from that position.

The only Lady Dons duo that had to come from behind were Jess Gerson and Maggie Curless playing at JV-3. Overcoming an early Carondelet lead, Maggie and Jess settled down, took control and won the next eight games.

Filling in at the last minute for an ill varsity player Milena Lucey teamed with Lia Swan to secure an 8-3 win for the Varsity. Milena cotrolled the net and Lia played a number of ground stroke winners.

Niki Palamountain and Skyler DeMartini playing at D-3 started the Acalanes scoring with an 8-2 win over Miramonte opponents who had beaten them 2-8 in our first match. This turnaround from Niki and Skyler is indicative of the type of improvement that we have seen throughout the season from all of the JV Lady Dons. Playing at D-1 Maggie Curless and Maddie McDonagh continued their strong play and winning ways by recording an 8-4 victory. Maddie was named the JV Lady Dons’ Most Valuable Player at our post-season party.

At D-2, Captains Claire Terentieff and Hayley Gotellli played a fine match before bowing 6-8 to a fine Miramonte duo. Molly Cronk and Sophia Scipi at D-4 came back from 0-40 to 6-7 before their opponents could claim a 6-8 win.

Jessica Gerson and Olivia Towery played a terrific match against a D-5 Miramonte team that could have played at D-1 or D-2. With Jess controlling the net and Olivia the backcourt, the Acalanes tandem recorded a fine 8-6 win. Sammy Browne and Captain Doe Steinbrecher dug out of a 0-4 hole before Miramonte could claim a point at 4-8.

Remarkably, the remaining Acalanes lines from D-7 to D-13 swept the Lady Mats. At D-7, Captain Alex Awwad and Meena Neelakadan got out to an early lead and did not let their opponents into the match on their way to an 8-2 win. Lauren Craig and Shannon McVay at D-8 got off to a slow start at 0-2, but battled their way to a 4-3 lead and held on to achieve an 8-5 win. Lauren and Shannon won the seventh Acalanes point of the day, thus ensuring a Lady Dons’ victory in our final match of the year.

At D-9, Emily Klein and Sophia Lindgren meshed their games effectively to secure a hard won point with an 8-6 win. This set saw really intense rallies and a number of deuce games that Sophia and Emily were able to convert. Captains Alexia Lucey and Lucy Nguyen played really well together in their final JV outing, besting their Miramonte foes 8-4.

Playing at D-11, our Sophomore/Freshman combo of Sally Tang and Milena Lucey got and early lead and did not relinquish it on their way to an 8-3 win. Sally’s serve was tremendously effective and set up a number of put away volleys for Milena at the net.

As she did earlier this week against Alhambra, Olivia Olson hung a bagel on her opponents. Playing today with Lia Swan at D-12, Olivia served effectively while racing to an 8-0 victory. Playing in her last JV match, Lia volleyed away the set point with a clean winner to clinch the Acalanes point.

Since we did not have a 13th line, Jess Gerson and Sophia Scipi agreed to “double back” and play a second set against a fine pair of Miramonte players. Sophia served and patrolled the backcourt effectively while Jess played a second strong set as a “net monster” and recorded the final Acalanes point of the 2015 season at 8-5.

As they have all season, each of our lines competed effectively and with great integrity. The JV Lady Dons represented Acalanes High School wonderfully well during the entire course of the 2015 season. Go Dons!

Oct 27 – JV Girls Tennis: Acalanes 6 – Alhambra 4

Playing under the lights for the first time this season, the Lady Dons defeated the Bulldogs of Alhambra High 6-4. With this win we improve to 10-4 overall and 6-3 in league matches. This was one of the best-attended matches of the season and the parental and grandparental support is appreciated.

Maggie Curless and Maddie McDonagh playing at D-1 got us off to a strong start by recording a convincing 8-1 win. Maggie and the Maddie took control of the match early and did not look back. Skyler DeMartini and Niki Palamountain got off to a slower start at D-2 but gathered themselves to move on to an 8-3 victory.

Molly Cronk and Sophia Scipi playing at D-3 also took control of their set early and did not let their opponents into the match on their way to an 8-1 win. At D-4, Jess Gerson and Olivia Towery continued to play steady tennis both at the net and in the backcourt as they bested their Bulldog opponents 8-3.

At D-7, the Lucey Sisters, Alexia and Milena, did their best Williams’ sisters impersonation as they rallied from as slow start to come home winners at 8-2. Milena and Alexia communicated effectively (amazing for siblings) and covered the court well chasing down a number balls that looked to be Alhambra winners before they turned into Acalanes points.

Sally Tang and Olivia Olson handed the Alhambra D-8 team a bagel. Serving and volleying well, Olivia and Sally romped to an 8-0 victory. Because we had to change our order of play to accommodate some time concerns, Emily Klein and Sophia Lindgren were on the court until 7:00 p.m. Despite the late start for the D-6 line and scrappy Bulldog opponents, Emily and Sophia communicated effectively and covered the court well as they put us over the top with an 8-5 victory.

All of our lines competed well with a number of our losing sets going to deuce games that were marked by long rallies and really fine shot making.

Oct 22 – JV Girls Tennis: Acalanes 3 – Dublin 0

The Acalanes JV juggernaut rolled over the Dublin Gaels 3-0 in their house. Playing at D-1, Maddie McDonagh and Maggie Curless started the Acalanes scoring with an 8-1 win. Both Maddie and Maggie served well and controlled points at the net in nailing down the opening victory.

Sophia Scipi and Molly Cronk, at D-2, overcame some questionable line calls by focusing on their game and rolling to an 8-2 triumph. Despite this potential distraction, Molly and Sophia maintained their composure and controlled both the net and the backcourt on their way to victory.

Playing at D-3, Shannon McVay and Lauren Craig continued their winning ways by defeating their Dublin opponents 8-1. Shannon and Lauren communicated effectively on a number of points and played solidly both at the net and in the backcourt.

Since Dublin could only field three JV lines, captains Alexia Lucey and Lucy Nguyen agreed to play an exhibition set against a Dublin varsity team. Alexia and Lucy were opposed by a D-1 / D-4 team of varsity Gaels. Lucy and Alexia played a number of competitive points and deuce games in a great 2-6 effort.

The Lady Dons record improves to 8-4 overall and 6-3 against DFAL opponents.

Oct 20 – JV Girls Tennis: Acalanes 9 – Los Lomas 0

The Lady Dons swept Las Lomas today 9 – 0. Following the excellent advice of Negro Leagues great and Major League pitcher Satchel Paige: “Don’t look back. Something might be gaining on you” – all of our lines got off to good starts and did not look back to let their opponents into the match.

Vivian Toni and Kelly Min set the pace for Acalanes at D-1 by recording a fine 8-2 victory. Vivian and Kelly played solidly from the first game, which began during team introductions at the request of Las Lomas. At D-2, Sammy Browne once again stepped up to fill in and partnered with Alex Awwad to an 8-5 win. Sammy and Alex were involved in the most competitive match of the day.

Also answering the call for a sub, Maggie Curless steeped into the lineup at noon today as Skyler DeMartini’s partner at D-3. Skyler and Maggie played very well together and cruised to an 8-2 victory. Claire Terentieff and Lucy Nguyen overcame some early unforced errors to take command of line D-4 and record an 8-3 Acalanes win.

Jess Gerson and Olivia Towery made some early adjustments due to the sun and their opponents playing style to keep the Acalanes ball rolling with an 8-4 win. Olivia and Jess displayed terrific sportsmanship throughout the match, with Olivia going so far as to give her opponent a hair tie when the Las Lomas player needed one.

At D-6 Molly Cronk and Sophia Scipi jumped out to a 6-1 lead before I could walk around the court to check in with them. Sophia and Molly maintained their focus to record a convincing 8-1 victory. Sophia Lindgren and Emily Klein overcame some questionable line calls and kept their focus on their games to come home winners at 8-4. Also having to deal with debatable line calls, Milena Lucey and Sally Tang showed great tenacity in rolling over their Las Lomas opponents 8-1.

Showing great good sportsmanship at D-9, Shannon McVay and Lauren Craig were matched against complete beginners from Las Lomas. The initial plan to team a Las Lomas beginner with one of their better players did not work out and Shannon and Lauren found themselves across the net from girls who are just learning the game. Both Lauren and Shannon assisted the Lady Knights in keeping score, switching sides and were generally supportive of their opponents. Coach Katie and I could not be prouder of the way our D-9 girls handled themselves on their way to an 8-0 shut out.

Since Las Lomas could not field their tenth line Olivia Olson and Lia Swan played an exhibition match against the D-3 team from Las Lomas. Olivia played really well at the net and Lia ran down a number of balls in a truly competitive match that Las Lomas pulled out 8-2.

With this win, we improve to 7-4 overall and 5-3 in DFAL play.

Oct 14 – JV Girls Tennis: Northgate 4 – Acalanes 1

The Lady Dons dropped a well-contested road match to a fine Northgate squad 4 – 1. Playing the varsity three-set format for the first time this season, the Acalanes pairs played hard in a losing cause.

At D-1, acting captains Skyler DeMartini and Maggie Curless played a terrific match that went to a tie-breaker in the second set. In a seven-point tiebreaker, Maggie and Skyler forced their opponents to go to 12-10 before earning the win, 6-4, 7-6.

At D-2, Sophia Scipi and Molly Cronk played a fine two set match with a number of the games going to deuce before Northgate pulled it out at 6-3, 6-3. Our D-3 duo of Emily Klein and Sophia Lindgren ran into a Northgate team that could have been seeded at D-1. Sophia and Emily played a number of fine points during their match. Shannon McVay and Lauren Craig played well in a 4-6, 3-6 loss, with Lauren winning points with her volley at the net while Shannon delivered a number of backcourt winners off her groundstrokes.

Allowing Acalanes to avoid the bagel, acting captain Olivia Olson, looking very stylish in Converse low cuts and Milena “I Love Tiebreakers” Lucey teamed to pull out a three-set victory, The match at D-5 saw the Acalanes tandem prevail in TWO tiebreakers. Playing a seven-point tiebreaker for the first set, Milena and Liv started strong and ran off a 7-4 win. After dropping the second set 1-6, Olivia and Milena re-grouped and played a wonderful ten-point tiebreaker to secure the third set and a well-deserved win, 7-6, 1-6, 10-5. In their last two matches Milena and Olivia have won three tiebreakers, playing really fine tennis under pressure.

Oct 13 – JV Girls Tennis: Acalanes 4 – Campolindo 3

The Lady Dons JVs edged the Cougars of Campolindo 4 – 3 in a close match in unseasonably hot weather. While the calendar read October 13, the thermometer was well into the 90s. Doe Steinbrecher and Sammy Browne recorded the first Acalanes point at D-4 by taking control of the match early and finishing with an 8-4 win. Although Doe was hit early in the match by a Campo shot, she and Sammy held their ground and the lead.

At D-5 Niki Palamountain and Skyler DeMartini jumped out to an early 5-2 lead only to see their opponents come back and get into the match at 5-4. Niki and Skyler held their focus and their serve to emerge 8-6 winners. Getting out to an even bigger lead at D-6, Molly Cronk and Meena Neelakadan were enjoying a 7-1 advantage only to see their opponents cut the margin to 7-5, before Molly and Meena closed them out. Niki, Skyler, Molly and Meena all played really well when the momentum shifted to their opponents. It is easy to get down on yourself or your partner when your opponents begin reeling off wins, but both or D-5 and D-6 teams dug in and secured much-needed points for the Lady Dons.

As they did in our first match at Campo, Maddie McDonagh and Maggie Curless played a tense, competitive, match at D-2 to ensure the Acalanes win. Despite Maggie getting drilled by a Cougar volley, she and Maddie fought hard to earn a thrilling 9-7 victory. Maggie may have the first honest tennis ball bruise of the 2015 season.

This win by the Lady Dons avenges our earlier 3-7 loss at Campo and demonstrates the improvement made by the JV team this season. Our record improves to 5-3 overall and puts us back at .500 in the DFAL with a 3-3 record.

JV Girls Tennis: Dougherty Valley 7 – Acalanes 1

As we did in our first meeting, all of the Acalanes JV lines played really hard in a 7-1 loss to the defending DFAL Girls Tennis Champions from Dougherty Valley. The coaching staff is really proud of Sammy Browne, who volunteered to play a singles match at S-1. Although it is a cliché to say the match was closer than the score would indicate, it is absolutely true of Sammy’s effort in an 8-0 match, which saw a number of extended rallies and deuce games.

Playing at D-1, Vivian Toni and Maddie McDonagh controlled their DV opponents and came away with an 8-3 win. This is our only JV win against Dougherty Valley in the last three years.

At D-2 Claire Terentieff and Alex Awwad also played a really competitive line in a 3-8 effort. Niki Palamountain and Skyler DeMartini had a number of lead changes in a hard fought 6-8 match at D-3. At D-4 Hayley Gotelli and Maggie Curless could have used a CPA to keep the 6-8 score straight against a mathematically challenged opponent. Fortunately the DV coach clarified the match score.

Once again all of our freshmen pairs competed really well in their first and only trip to DV. Due to a realignment of the DFAL in 2016, Dublin and DV will be in another league. At D-6, Molly Cronk and Milena Lucey got down 0-6 before reeling off five consecutive winning games. Molly and Milena showed great spirit in mounting this comemback. Sophias Lindgren and Scipi teamed at D-5 and played hard in a 2-8 effort. Referred to as “Sophia squared” during introductions, the Sophias played hard despite unseasonal heat in early October.

In the final match of the day, Lauren Craig and Shannon McVay got caught in the “doubling back” snare. Due to an unequal numbers of players, a higher ranked player joined the D-7 line for DV. Lauren and Shannon played a tactically sound match with a number of extended rallies with many of their games to deuce before being decided. Despite being down 0-7, Lauren and Shannon continued to fight hard and broke serve before bowing 1-8. The coaching staff is really proud of this type of competitive effort.

Oct 6 – JV Girls Tennis: Acalanes 8 – Miramonte 4

The Lady Dons JVs finished the first half of the DFAL tennis season with a resounding 8-4 win over Miramonte. We stomped the Mats!

Sammy Browne and Meena Neelakadan started the Acalanes scoring with a convincing 8-1 win at D-6. Captains Claire Terentieff and Hayley Gotelli overcame their concern for Hayley’s lost phone and recorded an 8-4 victory atD-3.

Despite being badly mis-coached (I thought they were down 3-7, when in fact they were UP 7-3) Maddie McDonagh and Maggie Curless played a terrific match at D-1. After I gave them my best “better luck next time” pep talk when they came off the court, they finally informed me that Acalanes had won 8-5.

Sophomores Jess Gerson and Olivia Towery teamed effectively at D-7 to record an 8-4 win. While Olivia ran a number of balls down in the back court, Jess covered the net throughout the match and volleyed away a winner at match point. Sally Tang and Lia Swan played a close tactical match at D-9, showing great focus to rack up a 9-7 victory. Sally’s serve was smoking and Lia’s ground strokes controlled the back court.

Our frosh duos recorded a pair of Acalanes wins at D-10 and 11. Emily Klein and Sophia Lindgren took and early lead and did not let up on their way to an 8-4 win. Playing against a surprisingly unfocused team from Miramonte, Shannon McVay and Lauren Craig kept their composure and were not distracted while securing an 8-4 win for the Lady Dons.

The final match of the day saw Liv Olson and Milena Lucey record an 8-7 win in a match shortened due to time constraints. At 7-7, we agreed to play a seven-point tie breaker. Olivia and Milena really dug in and dominated the tie-breaker 7-2.

The JV Lady Dons are 5-2 overall and 3-2 in the DFAL.

Oct 1 – Girls JV Tennis

The JV Lady Dons tennis team downed the Alhambra Bulldogs 8-3 in a DFAL match this afternoon in Martinez. All of the Acalanes lines played competitively in a convincing win.

Using the 8-game pro set format, Maddie Guzaitis and Kelianne Witt playing at D-1 began the scoring with an 8-2 win. Maddie and Keli overcame a slow start before taking control of the match by running off six consecutive games. Also starting slow at D-2, Sam Sweeney and Olivia Reinecke found themselves down 0-3 before they began to play their game on their way to an 8-4 victory. Playing against opponents, who did not put much pace on the ball and lobbed consistently, Olivia and Sam tried a couple of different tactics before settling on playing a fine aggressive style of tennis on their way to victory.

Niki Palamountain and Skyler Demartini continued their winning ways by serving and volleying effectively to record an 8-2 win at D-3. Captains Alex Awwad and Doe Steinbrecher, playing at D-4 took control of the net en route to an 8-4 victory. Also prevailing 8-4, Meena Neelakadan and Milena Lucey communicated effectively on a number of points and covered the court well at D-5. At D-8, Sally Tang and Olivia Towery got off to a fast start at 3-0 and continued to pressure their opponents at the net to secure an 8-3 win.

The Lady Dons freshman duos acquitted themselves well at D-7, 9 and 10. Sophia Lindgren and Emily Craig played really well together and covered the court effectively in notching an 8-4 win. At D-9, Shannon McVay and Lauren Craig served well and maintained their focus to record an 8-2 Acalanes victory. Rounding out our day and recording a dominant 8-0 win, Sophia Scipi and Molly Cronk also had to work to maintain their focus, while Sophia was knocking Molly’s racquet out of her hand with a serve.

The JV Lady Dons improved their record to 4-2 overall and evened our record at 2-2 in the DFAL.

Sep 24 – JV Girls Tennis: Acalanes 6 – Las Lomas 0

The JV Lady Dons recorded their first DFAL win of the 2015 season by blanking the Las Lomas Knights 6-0 at home. Due to a number of illnesses, Las Lomas only brought three lines to today’s match. Captains Alexia Lucey and Lucy Nguyen got the Acalanes ball rolling with a convincing 8-1 win at D-3. Alexia and Lucy communicated effectively and covered the court well throughout their match. Also recording an 8-1 win were Captains Sammy Brown and Claire Terentieff at D-2. Claire and Sammy took control of the net and the match early and did not look back.

At D-1 Kelly Min and Maddie McDonagh got off to a slow start getting down 0-2 before they cut down their unforced errors and began playing their game en route to a 8-3 win. Maddie was literally a last minute fill in with her mother bringing her tennis gear to school during seventh period.

At D-5, Milena Lucey and Olivia Towery teamed to play the D-2 team from Las Lomas. Despite Milena hitting a first serve off the back of Olivia’s head, our D-5 combo rolled to an 8-2 victory.

Las Lomas split up its D-1 team to play lines four and six. These proved to be the most competitive and compelling matches of the day. Facing a D-1, D-3 team, Maggie Curless used a combination of her hard first serve and “moon ball” second to keep Las Lomas off balance and Jess Gerson effectively controlled the net on their way to an 8-6 win. The final match of the day saw the frost duo of Sophia Lindgren and Emily Klein playing at D-6 against a D-1 player and her D-3 partner. Emily and Sophia grabbed an early lead and did not let go. Sophia served out an 8-6 win with Emily volleying a clean winner at match point.

This impressive win evens our overall record at 3-3 and we move to 1-2 in DFAL play. Way to go Lady Dons!

COACH JOHN

Sep 23 – JV Girls Tennis : Acalanes 5 – College Park 1

The Lady Dons played well at all lines to defeat College Park High 5-1 on the road. Olivia Towery and Jess Gerson began the Acalanes scoring at D-5, by blanking their opponents 6-0 in a six-game pro set format. Claire Terentieff and Olivia Olson controlled both the net and their College Park foes to bring home a 6-1 win at D-4. Sally Tang and Maddie McDonagh at D-3 served and volleyed well in hanging a bagel (6-0) on their opponents.

Lia Swan teamed with Sammy Browne to ring up a terrific 6-2 win at D-6, again by controlling the net and dictating play. At D-1 Vivian Toni and Mia Westphal dropped their first set 2-6, but then regrouped and refocused to prevail 6-1 against a difficult, unorthodox College Park pair. Mia and Vivian showed real mental toughness.

The final and most competitive match of the day saw Sophia Lindgren and Hayley Gotelli rally from 4-5 down at D-2 to rip off three consecutive games and walk away winners 7-5. Some of our lines had finished their second exhibition set before Sophia and Hayley got off the court. Many of the games in this match went to deuce; and Sophia and Hayley had to break serve twice in the last three games. This was a really fine competitive effort.

It was a great effort for all of the Lady Don pairs this afternoon.

The Lady Dons first road trip was commandeered by Campolindo as the Cougars won a spirited match 7–3. Molly Cronk stepped up to play our first singles match of the year and fought hard before dropping an 8-game pro set 3-8.

At Doubles 1, Maddie MacDonagh and Sam Sweeney provided Acalanes’ first highlight by playing an “up and down and up” match in recording an 8-6 win. Sam and Maddie were up early only to see their lead dissolve before they re-grouped to pull out a victory in a really fine match.

At D-6, Jess Gerson teamed with Maggie Curless to play a terrific match that resulted in an 8-6 Lady Dons win. Both Maggie and Jess dominated the net and covered the court effectively throughout the match. Our final win was in the final match of the day with Niki Palamountain hitting the final winner to secure an 8-5 win with her partner Skyler DeMartini. Niki and Skyler ran down a number of Campo shots that appeared to be winners only to turn them into Lady Don points.

Although we came up short today, we get Campo at our house in October and will look to reverse the result. You should also know that the Campolindo’s Coach Melanie complimented all of you on your sportsmanship and competitiveness.

Sep 15 – JV GIRLS TENNIS – Dougherty Valley 8 – Acalanes 0

All of our lines competed hard in a 8-0 loss to the defending DFAL Girls Tennis Champions from Dougherty Valley today. At D-1, Kelly Min and Sam Sweeney rallied from 3-6 down to take their 8-game pro set to a tiebreaker at 8-8. They even took the tiebreaker beyond 7-points before Dougherty Valley could break through 8-6.

All of our freshmen pairs competed really well in their first DFAL action. Milena Lucey shook off being drilled in the back by Emily Klein’s serve and they went on to take 5 games from their opponents at D-6. Shannon McVay and Lauren Craig won 4 games from their opponents in a really hard-fought match at D-5. Molly Cronk and Sophia Scipi playing at D-4 lost 8-2, but the match was much closer than the score would indicate. Many of their games went to deuce before being decided.

Overall, the Lady Dons really played well against a fine DFAL opponent. While it was a tough day on the court, the pain started with Olivia Olson being stung by a bee during the team introductions. Playing through the pain, Liv partnered with Lia Swan at D-7 and played a tough match winning 4 games.

We look forward to taking on Campo in an away match on Thursday.

Sep 3 – JV Lady Dons Tennis launches season 6-3 over the Wolfpack from San Ramon Valley

In a really well played match, comprised of 10 game pro sets, the Lady Dons were lead by Hannah Snyder and Mia Westphal playing at D-1. Mia and Hannah played physically and mentally tough to break serve at 9-10 and force a tiebreaker. They secured an 11-10 victory by winning the tiebreaker 7-2. Sam Sweeney and Maddie MacDonagh had a much easier time at D-3, but maintained great focus in winning 10-3. At D-6, Niki Palamountain and Skylar DeMartini were locked in a really competitive match 5-5 before pulling away to record a 10-6 win.

At 10-1, Claire Terentieff and Hayley Gotelli won the most lopsided of our lines at D-7. Like Maddie and Sam, Claire and Hayley did not let their opponents into the match by continuing to play aggressively at the net. At D-9, Jess Gerson and Olivia Towery also demonstrated terrific net play in a 10-3 victory. The final match of the day saw Doe Steinbrecher and Sammy Browne overcome a 6-9 deficit to prevail 11-9. Doe and Sammy got off to a rocky start, but picked up their games by eliminating unforced errors and showing great mental toughness throughout the match.

Overall, all of our lines competed effectively against a fine team from San Ramon Valley. It was also great to see a number of Lady Dons, who were not slated to play, at the courts to support their teammates.

Nov 6 – Lady Dons Varsity Tennis Team Competes at DFAL Tournament

Each of the classes at Acalanes was represented today at the DFAL Girls Tennis Tournament by the varsity Lady Dons. Seniors Queenie Chin, Shelley Kwok and Mackenna Mullins were joined by Junior Melissa Van Pell, Sophomores Madeline Bakar, Fernanda Heredia, Skylar Jeveli, Lauren Ladrech, Mia Westphal and Freshman Alexandra “Sasha” Schtein.

Melissa and Skylar shook off some early nerves and dispatched their Las Lomas opponents, 8-1, to begin the first round. Mia and Mackenna drew the Number 6 seeded team from Campolindo but played a really competitive match before going out 3-8. Continuing a run of bad draws for the Lady Dons, Lauren and Fernanda ran into the Number 5 seeds from Dougherty Valley and fell 5-8. Shelley and Madeline played really well together but could not get by a fine team from Dublin, losing 4-8. Sasha and Queenie, playing the last match of the first round, played tenacious tennis to pull out an 8-6 win over their Las Lomas opponents. Tied at 6-6, Alexandra and Queenie played terrific defense to break serve. Queenie then fired three service winners in the deciding game.

In second round action, Skylar and Melissa lost to a fine combo from Miramonte and Queenie and Sasha ran into the number 2 seeded team from Las Lomas.

All of the Lady Dons doubles teams competed fiercely throughout the day on the St. Mary’s College courts. Jamba Juice was great and the pizza was delicious (particularly the BBQ chicken.)  Nice effort Lady Dons.

Oct 30 – JV Girls Tennis – Campolindo 8 – Acalanes 2

The Lady Dons completed their 2014 campaign by playing a fine match in a losing effort at Campolindo. Although Campo recorded an 8-2 win most of the lines were close 8-6 or 8-5 losses. All of the Acalanes lines competed hard throughout the match.

Playing at D-2, Maddie Guzaitis and Kelianne Witt continued their winning ways. Maddie and Keli jumped out to a quick 4-1 advantage, but slowed down in the middle of the match to let Campo back in at 5-4. At this point the the Lady Dons regrouped and powered their way to an 8-5 victory. Our D-3 combo of Allie Figueredo and Samantha Bell had the reverse experience. Down 5-2 and 6-3, they made adjustments to their game and virtually eliminated the unforced errors that got them into the hole. Playing terrific team tennis, Sam and Allie won five straight games to prevail 8-6. Playing for the first time together at D-9, Claire Terentieff and Sally Tang took their opponents to a tiebreaker which Campo won 8-6.

Although the final score against Campo is the same as our first match, the individual set scores were much closer and the overall match had a more competitive feel.  Once again, as they have all season, the Lady Dons JV Tennis team represented Acalanes High School wonderfully well.

The Lady Dons celebrated Maggie Curless’ birthday with a sweep at Alhambra. Playing at D-1, Allie Figueredo and Samantha Bell continued to play really well as a team and achieved an 8-4 win. Sam and Allie communicated effectively with each other and kept pressure on their opponents throughout the set. Claire Terentieff and Samantha Browne shut out their D-2 opponents 8-0. Controlling the net throughout the match permitted Claire and Sammie to coast to a win. Alexia Lucey and Lucy Nguyen played effectively at D-3 and brought home an 8-2 victory. Alexia’s serve kept the Alhambra team deep on the court and Lucy capitalized by putting away some fine volleys. Julia Lauer teamed with the birthday girl at D-5 and won handily 8-2. Maggie and Julia, playing together for the first time this season, were a truly effective team. Playing at D-6, Philippine Chauvet and Cameron Morton rounded out the Acalanes scoring with a fine 8-4 win. Cameron served really well and covered the backcourt, while Philippine scored consistently with backhand winners.

In our two exhibition matches, Lia Swan and Samantha Browne teamed at D-7 to defeat the D-1 team from Alhambra 8-1. Sammie was playing in her second set and she again took control of the net and put away a number of volleys, while Lia defended the mid court and back court areas with some terrific ground strokes and half volleys. Our D-8 team of Olivia Olson and Sally Tang played a fine match against the Alhambra D-2 duo. Although Alhambra won a competitive set 8-3, Sally served well and Olivia returned serve with a number of winners.

Once again, all of our lines competed well and demonstrated terrific sportsmanship during the entire match.

Oct 23 – JV Girls Tennis: Miramonte 8 – Acalanes 4

This afternoon we played an excellent match against a tough Lady Mats squad. Although Miramonte won the match 8-4, all of our lines competed effectively and the Lady Dons continue to improve. Our result today is an improvement over our first match loss at 10-3.

Kelianne Witt and Maddie Guzaitis continued to play winning tennis at D-2 downing a tough combo from Miramonte 8-4. Maddie and Keli returned to the form they showed at Las Lomas and Dougherty Valley in controlling the set against a fine Miramonte doubles team.

Following up on their winning performance at Dublin, our second victory of the day was an 8-4 win by the combo of Melanie Tymm and Alexia Lucey, playing at D-9. Alexia continued to serve consistently and cover the backcourt effectively while Melanie handled a number of tough volleys at net.

A new Lady Dons’ team of Cameron Morton and Kelly Min accounted for an Acalanes point with an 8-5 win at D-11. Kelly kept the Miramonte duo pinned deep with some great topspin groundstrokes and Cameron, playing in her second set of the day, controlled the net in a really hard fought set.

Our final win was recorded by Samantha Bell and Allie Figueredo, who doubled back to play a second set at D-12. Communicating effectively with each other Sam and Allie played a number of hotly contested points in an 8-4 victory.

It should also be noted that recently licensed California driver, Julia Lauer teamed with Olivia Olson and took their Miramonte opponents to a tie breaker in a fine come back effort. Although Miramonte won the tiebreaker, Julia scored 100% on her driver’s test.

A really good effort by all of the Lady Dons players on and off the court.

Oct 16 – Varsity Girls Tennis – Acalanes 7 – Dublin 2

The Lady Dons Varsity tennis team avenged an early season defeat by the Gaels of Dublin High in convincing fashion 7-2. Melissa Van Pell began the scoring with a straight set win at S-1. Singles players Tara Barabi, Alexandra Singer,and Madeline Bakar contributed wins. The Lady Dons doubles teams added to the scoring with Sophomores Lauren Ladrech and Quinn Harrington and the Senior-Sophomore combo of Katrina Bittner and Fernanda Heredia notching victories.

The final point of the day, actually early evening by the time the match concluded, was added by Freshman Sasha Stein playing at S-2. Sasha played one of the finest matches this coaching staff has been privileged to watch in the last two years. Getting into the deepest hole possible, Sasha dropped the first set to her Dublin opponent and trailed 0-5 in the second set. At this point Sasha dug in and playing like your National League Champion San Francisco Giants; she refused to lose. Sasha faced four elimination games while reeling off seven consecutive wins to force a third set tiebreaker. Once in the tiebreaker, there was no way Sasha was not going to win, which she did at 10-6. It was a remarkable individual performance and capped a great team win.

Oct 16 – JV Girls Tennis – Acalanes 3 – Dublin 3

The JV Lady Dons earned a split with Dublin High Thursday afternoon 3-3. This is a distinct improvement over our first match with the Lady Gaels, which was a 1-6 loss. Allie Figueredo and Samantha Bell continued their winning ways of late playing at D-2. Playing through some questionable line calls early in the match, Sam and Allie maintained their poise for an 8-3 victory. Claire Terentieff and Alex Awwad at D-4 played really well as a team in winning 8-2. Claire handled a number of balls at the net while Alex effectively covered the backcourt. Playing as a last minute fill-in, Melanie Tymm teamed with Alexia LUCEY at D-5 and powered their way to an 8-2 win. Melanie played a number of winning volleys and Alexia served effectively throughout the set.

It was a good effort by all of our lines. We had to contend with a strong wind and for our later lines, failing light. Good effort by all today.

Oct 9 – Acalanes Girls JV Tennis

All of our JV girls tennis lines played exceptionally well together this afternoon to sweep Las Lomas 9-0. We played a number of new doubles combinations as well as some of our more set pairs today against Las Lomas. A new combination of Julia Lauer and Claire Pockell-Wilson set the tone at D-1 with an 8-3 win. Julia and Claire got off to a slow start at 2-3 but made some fine adjustments and picked up their games to coast home. Another new combo of Cameron Morton and Philippine Chauvet played really well together at D-8 Cameron played her very steady game and Philippine contributed a number of fine volleys to secure an 8-2 win. Melanie Tymm, who was moved up at the last minute teamed with Hannah Snyder at D-4 for a convincing 8-1 victory. Sally Tang and Alex Awwad, playing together for the first time at D-7, came home winners 8-2

Our more set teams of Allie Figueredo / Sam Bell, Claire Terentieff / Sami Browne, Kelianne Witt / Maddie Guzaitis, and Lia Swan / Olivia Olson all won convincingly.

In our only exhibition match of the day Maggie Curless and Jess Gerson made a great effort at D-10 against a team comprised of a D-2 and D-3 player from Las Lomas, who doubled back to play a second set. Magggie and Jess fought back from 2-6 to 5-8 to make it a close contest.

Finally, I was really pleased to be told by one of the Las Lomas parents that he and his daughter thought Acalanes is the finest team that they have played this year. The Las Lomas dad noted that the Acalanes girls were respectful of our opponents, pleasant to play against and made very fine line calls. The JV Lady Dons should be proud of how you are representing Acalanes High School.

Oct 3 – JV Girls Tennis

The Lady Dons JV tennis team played a terrific non-league match against seven doubles teams from Piedmont High in unseasonable heat on Friday afternoon. Although we dropped the first three lines, lines four through seven came up winners.

At D-4, Skyler DeMartini and Hannah Snyder played tenaciously to pull it out 8-6. Trailing 0-2 after an early service break, Hannah and Skyler made some adjustments and dug in to grind out a hard-fought win. Claire Pockell-Wilson and Meena Neelakadan played really well together, communicating effectively on court and covering the net aggressively to win 8-3 at D-5. In the surprise of the day (for me at least) Alexandra Awwad and Sami Browne won 8-3 at D-6. It seemed that every time, I was near them on the far court, Piedmont was closing out a winning game. I was really pleased when Alex corrected my score sheet from 3-8 to 8-3 letting me know that she and Sami were the winners of the match. Rounding out our top seven, Alexia Lucey and Lucy Nguyen handled the pressure of a 7-7 tie to win the deciding eighth game and ensure a 4-3 win for the Lady Dons.

All of our players competed really well in difficult heat conditions. While it was very nice of the Piedmont players to turn around and play a second set so all of our players had a match, it means that girls on the lower portion of our ladder are competing against girls much higher on our opponent’s ladder. Even with this disadvantage, Maggie Curless and Melanie Tymm rallied to a dramatic 8-7 win playing at D-8. Our entire squad competed well.

Next week we return to DFAL play with home matches on Tuesday and Thursday against Campo and Las Lomas, respectively.

Oct 2 – Lady Dons Sweep Lady Dogs 5-0 – JV Tennis

In a joint JV / Varsity match in which Alhambra was decimated by illness, the JV Lady Dons won all five lines in convincing fashion. Maddie Guzaitis and Kellianne Witt started the ball rolling by hanging a bagel on their D-1 opponents – 8-0. Alexia Lucey and Sami Browne playing up at D-2 prevailed in a terrific match 8-3. Allie Figueredo and Samantha Bell communicated effectively on court and won 8-1. In a match with a number of hotly contested points, Hannah Snyder and Kelley Min were leading 5-3 when their opponents expressed a time concern. Hannah and Kelly closed out a traditional set with a fine 6-3 victory. Riley Winquist and Cameron Morton made some fine early adjustments to handle their Alhambra counterparts 8-3.

It was a really well played match at all lines and is the Lady Dons’ second league win.

Acalanes Lady Dons JV Girls Tennis blanked the College Park Falcons 8-0 at CPHS

In what is quite likely a first for DFAL tennis, Callie Zucker and Julia Lauer won at D-3, while Callie played barefoot. Julia was covering a lot of the court, but Callie held her own while shoeless. At D-8, Olivia Olson and Sally Tang showed great heart by coming back from 0-3 to prevail at 7-5 by breaking their opponents’ serve. Since we were somewhat decimated by illness, many of our girls played multiple sets against College Park. Playing again in the final set of the day and in the third set for both players, Sami Browne and her partner Lia Swan went to a tie-breaker to win 7-6. Lia played some wicked angle shots winners and Sami took charge at the net in a really exciting finale.

Here are the first set scores:

1. Riley Winquist / Cameron Morton won 6-1
2. Kellianne Witt / Maddie Guzaitis won 6-0
3. Shoeless Callie Zucker / Well shod Julia Lauer won 6-3
4. Alex Awwad / Claire Pockell-Wilson won 6-3
5. Claire Terentieff/ Samantha Browne won 6-1
6. Jessica Gerson / Skyler DeMartini won 6-3

July 28 – Blood Drive on Monday

Caroline Newman (Acalanes Girls LAX), a Girl Scout from Lafayette, is partnering with the Monument Crisis Center and the Blood Centers of the Pacific to hold a Community Blood Drive on Monday, July 28 at the Monument Crisis Center in Concord.

Caroline, who is going to be a senior this fall at  Acalanes High School, is working on her Girl Scout Gold Award project: Blood Donation Awareness Campaign & Community Blood Drive.

The Girl Scout Gold Award represents the highest achievement in scouting, recognizing girls who demonstrate extraordinary leadership through remarkable “Take Action” projects that have a sustainable impact on their communities.

In a leadership group last year at Acalanes, Caroline became involved in the school’s Healthy Choices Board that helps organize, among other things, an annual blood drive.

“After donating blood for the first time last year,  I learned that about one in seven people entering a hospital need blood,” Caroline said. “Nearly 60 percent of the population is eligible to donate blood, but less than 5 percent actually donates.”

“In my conversations with medical professionals from the  Blood Centers of the Pacific, I learned that once people donate they are likely to become lifelong donors. Several of the reasons people do not donate include little opportunity, fear and lack of understanding of the need for blood,” she said.

“With this new insight and an interest to help, I decided to develop a plan to build awareness for the need to donate blood, as well as to communicate the simplicity of actually donating.”

The  Monument Crisis Center in Concord is acting as the host site, and local businesses, including BMW of Concord and Fry’s Electronics, are joining in as active participants, Caroline said.

The blood drive will be in Monument’s parking lot at at 1990 Market St. To schedule your appointment, visit www.bloodheroes.com.

Congratulations – Dan Cardiff

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., – USTA Serves, the national charitable foundation of the United States Tennis Association, announced today that two local high school students were awarded either an $8,000 College Educational Scholarship or a $1,000 College Textbook Scholarship. The Foundation has granted 49 high school students a variety of college scholarships this spring, totaling $330,000.

The honorees were selected from applicants throughout the country on the basis of their commitment to academic success, to their local community and to their participation in tennis.  An objective of USTA Serves is to encourage America’s youth to pursue their goals and highest dreams by succeeding in school and becoming responsible citizens.

USTA Serves awards the College Educational Scholarship annually to high school seniors who have excelled academically, demonstrated community service and participated in an organized tennis program.  The $8,000 scholarship will be awarded over four years to students entering a two or four-year college or university.  The year’s recipient selected among the scholarship winners from across the nation is Kyle Schmidt of Kelseyville, Calif. 

USTA Serves established a College Textbook Scholarship which provides a one-time award of $1,000 to assist students in purchasing textbooks or supplies. This year’s recipient is Daniel Cardiff of Lafayette, Calif. 

“USTA Serves is proud to award these students for their academic achievements and tennis success,” said Dan Faber, USTA Serves Executive Director. “It is exciting to know that with these scholarships, they can continue to prosper. We commend them for their efforts and wish them a future filled with greatness on and off the court.”

Year-End Gift Matching

TIME SENSITIVE!

Fantastic news!  We are very excited to bring you our official “Gift Matching” web page on our  http://acalanesboosters.com/  web site.  The employee Matching Gift Program could easily be one of the year’s largest fundraising efforts for the Acalanes Boosters’ Club.   ANYONE who donated to the ABC this year could request matching gift funds from their employers.   Please take a minute to check if your employer has a Matching Gift Program.  We have hundreds of ABC donators who can potentially raise funds through this program.

Let’s try to collect as much FREE money as we can for our student athletes.  They deserve it!  This is time-sensitive and the cut off for requests is upon us, either Dec. 31, or Jan. 31, 2014. for fiscal year 2013.

Participating employers will have one or two+ donor programs:

1. Employers will match 1:1 eligible dollars donated.

2. Employers will provide a volunteer grant ie. $500 for volunteer hours per their guidelines.

For example, I have already contacted my employer and the ABC will receive $350 matching dollars for my donations, AND another $500 volunteer grant for meeting their criteria of 20-30 volunteer hours/calendar year.  $850 FREE dollars to the ABC.  WOW!  We have already received a few more matching gift donations this year as well.

Below are some easy instructions to follow.  If for any reason you are having difficulty with your submission, please feel free to contact me or your employer.  Mary Piscitelli 765-0457, I will be happy to help you.

A.      What is the proposed process?  It is very simple and will take just a few minutes.  (Time well spent!)

Go to the “acalanesboostersclub.com” web site.

Click on the last tab  ‘Gift Matching”, and it will bring you directly to the “Double the Donations” link and type in your company name.

See if your employer will match your donation!

Enter your company name ____________________________________________________

:

B.     If your employer participates, all their contact information will appear as well as any pertinent links to their company specific guidelines and submission forms etc.  If your company is not registered, I encourage you to call your HR department and inquire with them, sometimes it’s not publicized.

C.       Some employers will allow you to submit your request electronically, by e-mail, regular mail, &/or fax.  If your company has a secured web or e-mail, you will need your employee number and perhaps a password if you haven’t set it up already.      IF YOU DO NOT KNOW THIS INFORMATION, OR GET FRUSTRATED, PLEASE DO NOT GIVE UP!   Call them directly for assistance.  They are very willing and happy to help guide you through the process.

D.  Send Brad and I an e-mail with a brief explanation of your donations &/or hours volunteered for that calendar year and we will confirm your qualifying donations when your employer contacts us.  If you need a receipt, we can provide that as well.

E.    Provide your company with;

-Your employee information
-Dollar amount you donated and are requesting a match for &/or number of hours volunteered.  Your donation was to the Acalanes Boosters’ Club
-ABC receipt, IF requested by the company.  (We can provide you with an ABC receipt)
-Contact information for our ABC rep. Brad Smith / or Mary Piscitelli
-ABC Tax ID  # 23-7428299, and school address 1200 Pleasant Hill Rd.
All the information you will need is listed on the web page for you.

Most companies already have the Acalanes Boosters Club information in their system.  Our Not-for-Profit Federal Tax ID# is nationally recognized.   Once the employer verifies the request, a check will be mailed directly to the ABC.  The checks are cut either monthly or quarterly according to their protocol.

What if you still have questions?

For questions regarding your company’s programs, please contact your employer’s HR or community giving department.  They are very helpful.  Most of the necessary information is also available on your company intranet.

Nov 16 – Three Lady Dons Named to DFAL All-League

The Diablo Foothill Athletic League* has selected three Acalanes Lady Dons as All-League Girls’ Tennis players. Isabella von Ebbe was voted 1st Team All-League – Singles. Tessa Karagocev was chosen 2nd Team All-League – Singles. Melissa van Pell was given All-League Honorable Mention – Singles.

From the Acalanes perspective, these three Lady Dons truly deserve these honors as they played one, two and three singles for us throughout most of the successful 2013 season. They are also great young women and fine student athletes.

Congratulations to Isabella, Tessa and Melissa for an excellent season and on their selection as DFAL Girls’ Tennis All-League players.

Go Dons!

Nov 12 – Lady Dons Fall in NCS Team Competition

The Mission Valley Athletic League champions James Logan lived up to the number five seed by knocking the Lady Dons out of the North Coast Section Tennis Championships in a competitive match. The final score was 6-1. The bright spot for Acalanes was provided by senior Teresa Lo, who playing in her final match as a Lady Don, won 6-3, 6-2. All of our players competed hard and with integrity in a losing cause.

The Lady Dons are to be congratulated for their selection to the NCS Team Championships, which culminated a successful 10-7 season overall. We finished third in the DFAL with an 8-4 league record, which included two solid wins over Campolindo. The Lady Dons only league losses were to the two teams that finished ahead of us, DFAL champions Dougherty Valley and Miramonte, the two and three seeds in the NCS Championships.

It is expected that Isabella von Ebbe will receive an at-large berth in the individual NCS Championships and we wish her the best of luck next week in Albany or El Cerrito.

Before play began today, Tessa passed the exalted title of “Freshie” (spelled phonetically) to Skylar. Once again, we will miss our senior players, Alina, Lan-Anh, Tessa, Teresa and Erin. We wish them well.

Nov 8 – Acalanes Lady Dons Tennis DFAL Results

DFAL – Lady Dons Tennis

2nd in Singles and 3rd in Doubles

Our seeded Lady Dons represented Acalanes High School extremely well at the DFAL Girls’ Varsity Tennis Championships. In the semis, Isabella von Ebbe dispatched Miramonte’s Taylor James in straight sets 6-4, 6-4 to reach the finals, where she ran up against now-four time DFAL champion Rickimae Torres. Isabella played two very competitive sets to finish second in the tournament. Well done, Bella.

Our number three seeded doubles duo of Tessa Karagocev and Melissa Van Pell dropped two close sets to the number two seeds from Dougherty Valley, but went out winners in the consolation match over Miramonte’s D-1 team. What could have been Tessa’s last set as a Lady Don was a 6-0 thing of beauty with Melissa providing great support.

Nov 7 – Acalanes Girls Tennis Advance in DFAL Championships

Varsity Girls Tennis

The seeded Lady Dons all advanced to the semi-finals of the DFAL Girls’ Tennis Championship. Isabella von Ebbe, the #2 seed, got by Camille Hortillas from Las Lomas in the second round 6-0, 6-0. In the third round Bella defeated Zoe Grenville, also from Las Lomas, 6-0,6-4. On the doubles side, the #3 seeds, Melissa Van Pell and Tessa Karagocev knocked off Campolindo’s Sierra Ramer and Calli Cunningham, 6-0, 6-3. In the third round they faced another Ramer, Claire and her partner Anjali Majumdar from Miramonte and won 6-3, 6-2.

Our unseeded Lady Dons played very competitively against tough first round opponents. The 8-game pro set format is different and doesn’t give us the opportunity to adjust and come back as we have in the 3-set format. However, Skylar Jeveli and Fernanda Heredia forced their opponents to a tiebreaker at 9-8.
