 Acalanes vs Northgate

This past Wednesday, March 13th, Acalanes faced Northgate in our second dual meet competition. Unfortunately, despite many great individual performances, our girls were unable to overcome Northgate’s numbers and fell 79-57. Our boys team rallied behind great efforts in the distance and jumping events to win 76-60.Regardless of scores, all of our athletes competed like champions – Northgate brought a very large team to the event, including NCS leaders in several events, but your Dons didn’t back down and still finished in the top 3 in virtually every event. More importantly, they did so with the support of their teammates. Our entire coaching staff is incredibly proud of the way all of our athletes cheer each other on and compete not just as individuals, but as a team.


Some results are still being verified, but full results are here, and highlights are below. Link to photos immediately below – thank you to Alex Mathias!
