Nov 12 – Girls Water Polo wins first NCS title in 15 Years!

The Lady Dons rolled into Saturday’s championship game vs Drake trying to win their first NCS title in 15 years under Coach Misha Buchel.

Coach had his young squad ready to play in the first quarter with a scoring attack led by Sophmore Lexi Rowell‘s 3 goals and Senior Maddie Stewart in her final game for the Dons lobbing a crafty little shot over the keeper to put the Dons up 4-0.

Drake came out tough in the third scoring a quick goal to close the lead to 4-3. Dons Sophomore Kylie Walker responded with a fantastic bar in low corner shot from way outside. Drake wouldn’t be denied with their amazing goal from 7 meters out. The players, fans and coaches knew they were in for a dogfight in the fourth. End of 3 Dons 5 – Drake 4

Q4
The Dons worked the ball into all league star Lexi Rowell one more time and she hammered the ball into the back of the net opening up a lead 6-4 with 4 minutes to play.  Drake was not going away as their star player made a miracle high corner shot closing the gap to 6-5.   With the place going nuts freshman Zoe Benisek made a great pass to fellow freshman Brooke Westphal who hit a high corner shot to finish off Drake 7-5 with 2 minutes left.  A flurry of desperation shots were all blocked by star goalie Ella Maisano. Maisano had another amazing game stopping 14 shots including a 5 meter attempt.

Oct 21 – Girls Water Polo

In the premier Nor Cal tournament of the season the Dons drew a very tough draw the first day.
In the opener they faced the Cougars of Campo. We played fantastic defense and Ella Maisano kept us in the game with 7 saves. Thru 3 quarters the score was 5-3, in the fourth the more experienced Campo girls kept chipping in goals for a 10-3 win. Scoring Bella Wentzel w/ 2 outside goals and Brooke Westphal with 1 outside shot.

In the evening game we faced Clovis West the best team in Fresno. We battled throughout the game trailing by 1 most of the time but came up a bit short 9-5. Brooke Westphal led all scorers with 3 goals, Alex Fellner with 1 and Lexi Rowell had a great turn for a goal.

Next game Saturday at 8:50 in Palo Alto.

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.

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.

Sep 13 – Water Polo Girls Acalanes Invitational

Sixteen Northern California teams will compete at this weekend’s 5th Annual Acalanes Water Polo Invitational, which is being hosted by both Acalanes and Campolindo High Schools. Games will be played at both schools.

The tournament began when Coach Misha Buchel, tired of dragging his players out to the sweltering heat in the Central Valley to participate in a tournament in what may be described as sub-par pools made the decision to start their own tournament here in Lamorinda. His decision coincided with the time that Dawn Lynn Lanier was a new parent on his water polo team.  Dawn Lynn stepped up to the challenge and made Misha’s idea a reality and she’s been director of the tournament since.

The event has become one of the most successful fund raisers for the team, and an incredible polo experience for the girls, who get to play against some other great teams.
The first Varsity game starts Friday Sep 13 at 12 noon, and JV plays at Campo at 1:45PM. If you want to see some great polo games and support your local schools come check it out. Full schedules can be found here https://sites.google.com/site/acalanesinvitational/
