The boys volleyball team is the North Coast Section Champions.  They went to Northgate HS and pulled out a very close victory 25-21, 29-27, 26-28 and 25-23.  They advance to the CIF NorCal playoffs beginning Tuesday.

The boys lacrosse team played extremely well against a very good Marin Academy HS team in a thriller of a match. The Dons were up 1-0 after the first period, 3-2 after the third period and were leading 4-3 in the fourth. Marin Academy tied it up 4-4 with 1:44 to play. Marin then scored the winning goal with only 4 seconds left in the match.  Acalanes ends an outstanding season as the NCS Championship Runner-up.

The girls lacrosse team gave Miramonte HS all they could handle, but fell short 6-10.  Their stellar season ends well as NCS Championship Runner-up. The Dons got off to a hot start but then the Mats started chipping away swinging the momentum at half time up 7-5.  It was defense that won it for the Mats with a game of keep-away for the last 12 minutes of the game.  The girls celebrated their successful 18-7 season with post-game antics on the field!  Way to go Lady Dons!

Girls lacrosse photos will be posted on Maxpreps

The baseball team ended the regular season with a victory over Alhambra HS 4-2 as they prepare for the NCS playoffs next week.  The JV team also won 7-3.

CALLING ALL ACALANES SENIOR RECRUITED STUDENT ATHLETES

On Thursday, May 24, at lunchtime, Acalanes Boosters is proud to present a celebration of Acalanes’ talented, hard-working student-athletes who have been recruited to play their sports in college (Division I, II or III) while continuing their educations.

Local media, parents, friends, AHS students, and the community are ALL invited. There will be a group question and answer session, photo and interview opportunities, and other fun.

If your son or daughter has been recruited to play an intercollegiate sport in college next year and he or she has committed to play, please contact Jennifer Larson for more information so we can include them in the celebration. Your student-athlete does not have to play a sport that Acalanes offers, but the sport must be an intercollegiate sport (not club sport) at the school your student-athlete will attend.

 


In Tuesday’s action…

 

Everyone was a winner.

Boys Volleyball

The biggest victory came from the #5 seeded boys volleyball team in five games over perennial power and #1 seeded Campolindo HS in the NCS semifinals.  The Cougars won the first and third games, but the Dons battled back in the second and fourth to force game five.  The Dons found themselves down 12-8 and on the brink of elimination when they mounted the incredible rally outscoring their opponent 10-4 to post a stunning game five victory 18-16.  They not only advance to the Championship game, but they qualify for the CIF NorCal playoffs.  The Championship game is at Northgate HS Thursday at 7:00.

Girls Lacrosse

The #2 seeded girls lacrosse team led off the evening’s semifinal action with a rematch against #3 Piedmont HS.  The Dons were in control the entire game and recorded an identical 13-10 victory to advance to the NCS championship game.  The Championship game is at Miramonte HS at 7:00. It’s been four years since the Lady Dons have played in the championship game so come support the girls and cheer them on!

Boys Lacrosse

The #2 seeded boys lacrosse team overcame a slow start in the first half against #3 Miramonte HS and exploded in the third quarter to cruise to a 16-9 victory.  The Championship game is against Marin Academy HS at Marin Catholic HS at 5:30.

Baseball

defeated Northgate HS 5-3.  The JV team also won 8-5.

Softball

defeated Mt. Diablo HS 16-4.

Acalanes Girls finished second to a very strong Miramonte team. Miramonte should have beaten us in our dual meet, but they came yesterday and ran and jumped better than any other a team and earned the League Meet Championship. Acalanes remains the Dual Meet Champion.

Injuries have plagued the varsity boys and yesterday was no exception. Several athletes had to pull out of events because doing that last event, even with a slight injury, may have prevented them from next week’s competition.  Yet we still were able to put in great individual performances: Keaziah Smith jumping his way onto the leader board with 22-4; the 4 x 100 running the second fastest time of the season with 43.66, and only the second time this season under 44 sec. Welcome back Jesse Stralla.

The girls varsity, while finishing second to Miramonte, still finished 41 points ahead of the third place finisher.  Muppy Gragg in four events had two firsts, a second and a third. She jumped 18’1/2 in LJ, ran 44.90 in 300 hurdles (.02 off school record) and ran a season best in the 400 57.38; Mila Mathias and Maren Quinella running sub 17 in 100 hurdles finishing 2nd and 3rd;  Charlie Keohane running 61.50 for almost a 2 sec PR in the 400.

Those were just the highlights. We had 23 PR’s or Season PR’s overall. In the boys beside Keaziah (who also PRed in the 100); we had Chris Armanino and Vance Parry in the 100, Johnny Choi in the Long Jump; Kevin Mlynek in the 400; Ethan Frigon in the 800.

In the girls we had PR’s from Anna Weier in the 100 hurdles and discus (where she finished 2nd), Maddy Kalil and Bea Weier in shot; Mari Florine and Scarlette McCullough in the 200 (Scarlette also finished 3rd in PV); Nicole Frigon in the 800; Emily Sverak in the 400 and 300 hurdles.

CALLING ALL ACALANES SENIOR RECRUITED STUDENT ATHLETES

On Thursday, May 24, at lunchtime, Acalanes Boosters is proud to present a celebration of Acalanes’ talented, hard-working student-athletes who have been recruited to play their sports in college (Division I, II or III) while continuing their educations.

Local media, parents, friends, AHS students, and the community are ALL invited. There will be a group question and answer session, photo and interview opportunities, and other fun.

If your son or daughter has been recruited to play an intercollegiate sport in college next year and he or she has committed to play, please contact Jennifer Larson for more information so we can include them in the celebration. Your student-athlete does not have to play a sport that Acalanes offers, but the sport must be an intercollegiate sport (not club sport) at the school your student-athlete will attend.

HEADS OR TAILS – SANTA ROSA STYLE

 

Just six months ago, wildfires raged through the Wine Country upending the lives of thousands. Who can forget the images of the devastation inflicted on the Coffey Park neighborhood in Santa Rosa? Calls have gone out to support the affected communities, and The Acalanes Boosters Club is responding. This year’s Heads or Tails hotel property features The Sandman in Santa Rosa with its cool retro vibe, re-imagined in new and innovative ways.

With the convenience of a roadside inn and the character of a vibrant Wine Country hotel, The Sandman invites guests to experience the best of Sonoma County. Within the walls, you can be certain of the following: the art is local, the service is warm, and the amenities are thoughtful.

The Sandman is a place for everyone. Whether you’re a road tripper, a savvy business traveler, or an ardent explorer, we welcome you to Santa Rosa. Our motor lodge, a modern throwback inspired by the Spanish Mission Revival buildings found throughout the state, offers a certain peaceful simplicity—plus a few surprises. $500 gift certificate.

If you don’t play, you can’t win! How to play? For an entry of $25, you can participate by purchasing a Dons blue bracelet. We’ll play Heads or Tails just before the live auction. Come on up, and place your hands on your head or your tail to indicate your choice. When the coin is flipped and your call is correct, you stay in the game. Last one standing wins!

In past March and April weekend action …

 

These past two weekends the Acalanes track and Field Team competed at the Stanford Invitational and the Arcadia Invitational. At Stanford Invitational, colleges and high schools compete at the same event, but it is actually two different meets at the same event. The Arcadia Invitational is a high school meet only, but attracts the best talent in the country and outside. This year we had a very limited number of entries in both of these meets largely due to the fact that the meets were during spring break and due to injuries.

At Stanford, Ryan Nall competed in the Shot and Discus, Johnny Choi in the HJ, Muppy Gragg, Mikalea Troung, Emily Sverak and Mari Florine in the 4 x 400, and Emily Sverak, Scarlette McCullough, Beth Hamalian and Mari Florine in the 4x 100.

Ryan threw a personal best of 148′ 1″ in the discus; the 4 x 100 ran a personal best for these four girls (and a season best for the 4 x 100) 51.50; and the 4 x 400 ran a season best of 4:05.72 with Mikaela running a PR split of 61, Emily running a SPR of 62 and Muppy running a SPR of 56.6. In the high jump Johnny cleared 6’2″.

Arcadia Invitational is a two day meet but is like four meets in one. On Friday and Saturday they have the multi events where the boys compete in the decathlon and girls in the heptathlon. These events are not sanctioned by CIF, specifically the javelin, so this event is run by USA Track and Field Officials and not high school officials. Then there is the Friday night meet which consist mostly of relays of all kinds. The Saturday day meet is like an open invitational where they run three heats of everything and is a complete meet; and the Saturday night meet is strictly an invitational, and it is the best of the best that compete.

We had only two athletes at Arcadia, Johnny Choi in the high jump and he cleared 6’1 3/4; and Muppy Gragg in the heptathlon. Muppy competed in seven events over the two days. On Friday she competed in the 100 hurdles where she ran a personal best of 15.65; the high jump 5’1.75″; the shot put 28′; and the 200 where she ran a personal best of 25.26 (second on the all time leaderboard at Acalanes). On Saturday Muppy longed jump 17’6′; threw the javelin 78’5″ (which had to be competed off site due to CIF rules); and ran the 800M with a personal best of 2:18.65. In this event there were 16 athletes from California, Montana, Georgia, Canada, and Mexico.  Last year at this event Muppy finished 10th and scored 4190 points. This year Muppy scored 4632 points and finished 3rd.

The baseball team plays Miramonte HS at 4:00.  Varsity is home and JV is away.

The varsity softball team hosts Antioch HS and the JV team is at Northgate HS, both at 4:00.

Marsh Creek Invitational

Freshman Nicole Frigon crushes the women’s varsity 800M

 

Muppy Gragg, Mila Mathias and Maren Quinella sweep the women’s 100M Hurdles with 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place finishes

 

On Saturday, Acalanes competed in the Marsh Creek Invitational at Freedom High School in Oakley.

Muppy Gragg won the 300M hurdles with 45.22, which is a PR and the second fastest time in school history. She also won the high jump, placed 2nd in 100M hurdles and 3rd in Shot Put.  Jesse Stralla won the 100M with a season PR of 11.06, and continues to show he is one of the top sprinters in the section. Freshman Nicole Frigon won the varsity 800M and ran a PR in the 1600 with a 5:34.97, placing 3rd.  This is the third week Nicole has placed in the top three in a one or more events.  Keaziah Smith won the long jump with a PR 21’4, but what made this different was the board Keaziah jumped off of was floating on water and every time Keaziah jumped, the board would leak water.  Johnny Choi won the high jump with 6’2″ and was part of the 4 X 100 team, finishing 2nd.  Ryan Nall, in his first meet of the year won the shot with 46-08.5 and placed 2nd in the discus. Karen Rosenburg won the discus with 97’11. In the varsity men’s sprint medley (200, 200,400, 800) we had two teams in the top three; and the 4 x 400 (Rayce Walton, Harrison Seymour, Irvin Chao, and Kevin Mlynek) finished 3rd with a PR. What made this special is that the 4 x 400 is usually competed by sprinters, but Rayce is a 800 runner,  Harrison is a 1600 runner, Irvin is a 400/800, and Kevin is the only true sprinter in the group.

Personal Records (PR) and Season Personal Records (SPR):

Taylor Hill, running the 1600M in the rain.

This past Saturday the track and field team competed in Dan Gabor Invitational at Amador High School. The meet offered just six running events and four field events, but they had 87 heats of 400’s (339 athletes), 109 heats of 100’s (365 athletes), 28 heats of 1600, 27 heats of 800’s, and those just are the running events we competed in.

These events are one big time trial. What we as a staff are looking for, is how is our progress to date compares to last year, and can we compete.  The staff is happy with the results … for the most part our times are comparative to last year’s times for returning athletes, and our new athletes showed that they are willing to compete in races.

We had several athletes compete and finish in the top three in their heat. We had four girls in the top twenty in the 400, we set a meet record in the long jump, and we had 46 season or personal records set at this meet. See full results

Mar 18 – Acalanes Students Caught Tagging

Matt Self and Tyler Sverak Become Acalanes Baseball’s First “Official Taggers”

Contributors: Adam Henderson, John Whelehan, Jon Ewing

 

Acalanes Baseball Program has hired two students as “Official Taggers” to improve player performance and coach analysis. The Acalanes Baseball Program utilizes an innovative video analysis system that is built with state-of-the-art technology and designed specifically for baseball instruction. The RightView Pro (RVP) Video Analysis System is a premier training solution for coaches and players with technology designed for hitting and pitching analysis.

 

At the suggestion of Head Coach Justin Hughes, the program hired two Acalanes Students to serve as “Official RightView Pro Taggers” for home baseball games to better utilize the capabilities of the system. Matt Self, a senior and Tyler Sverak, a sophomore at Acalanes were hired and subsequently trained by hitting coach, Clint Hoover and former MLB player, Don Slaught, owner of RVP. They are both excellent students and have quickly embraced the complexities of the system and its applications to help Acalanes players and coaches perform at a higher level.

Interestingly, the SF Giants, many other MLB Teams, and numerous D-1 College programs use the system. The system has the capacity to analyze hitters and pitchers and compare their mechanics to All-Star MLB players. Additionally, the tagging of each pitch and each inning allows for an accumulation of data that is extremely helpful such as:

– How batters hit in various counts.

– Where teams hit the ball thus allowing for defensive positioning.

– Pitchers tendencies in various counts.

– How hitters perform in various counts.

 

With an eye toward fully using the RVP System, the Lafayette A’s, in conjunction with Boosters, Justin Hughes, Coach Lorge, and the school administration developed a job description for the position, advertised it throughout the school, and then selected Matt & Tyler for the job.

 

It is a great example of coaches, administrators, and parents working together to create opportunity and valuable training for students considering sports technology or related field in software as a career path. Matt & Tyler are doing so well that Don Slaught has identified them as candidates for tagging when he uses the system at Baseball Showcases in Northern California. Further, these two students will find this to be an excellent addition to their college resumes. They may even find the baseball program at the college they attend uses this system. As ‘Official Taggers’ it opens up a great student job opportunity for them in college and beyond…….and even offers career potential!
