May 13 – Girls Lacrosse Falls in NCS Quarterfinals

In a highly anticipated NCS quarterfinal match up, the Acalanes girls lacrosse team faced Miramonte for the third time this season, hoping to grab a win and advance in the tournament.  Both teams are evenly matched and traded goals the whole game, but the Dons went down by one with 1:30 left and couldn’t convert to send the game into overtime, losing to the Mats 8-7.  Both teams put up strong defensive stands, with senior goalie Samantha Repstad racking up ten more saves including a couple of point-blank shots.

Marie Whitmore led the offensive attack scoring the first three goals for the Dons, and picking up another in the second half.  Kelsey Wendt, Jenna Kisner and Anna DeRoque also each added a goal for the Dons. Julia Mueller and Marie Whitmore are credited with an assist each. DeRoque and Whitmore battled for possession and came up with seven ground ball controls between them for Acalanes and Sophie Ross fought hard in the circle to control the draw four times.  Strong defense by the Dons was led by Kelcey Higgins, Marie Whitmore, Katrina Lee, Anna DeRoque and Jenna Kisner, controlling loose balls and causing turnovers. Additional loose balls on the other end of the field were picked up by Susie Bush, Kelsey Wendt, Katie Welch and Claire Gallagher.  The Dons went out playing with intensity and heart.  We all will miss our seniors and wish them the best and look forward to next year’s season.

Senior captains Sophie Ross and Samantha Repstad served notice, with lots of assistance from their Lady Dons teammates, that Acalanes is a force to be reckoned with in this year’s NCS playoffs.  Ross, with 6 goals, 3 assists, and 6 draw controls, and Repstad with 14 impressive saves, were ready to roll in Santa Rosa, where Cardinal Newman secured a home field advantage with a league championship despite a lower seed.

May 6 – Acalanes Girls Lacrosse Senior Night

In their last game of the regular season, on senior night, and with an enthusiastic home crowd, the Acalanes girls lacrosse team gave one of their strongest performances of the year but couldn’t hold onto the lead they had established over Miramonte, losing the game by just a goal.  Senior goalie and captain Samantha Repstad ended her last regular season in style with sixteen saves, using everything she had to stop the experienced Mats shooters — a foot, a trap on the ground, a catch, a deflection — her full toolkit was at work tonight for her fellow Dons.

Marie Whitmore and Julia Mueller led the offensive attack with three goals each.  Susie Bush and Sophie Ross added the two additional points for the Dons.  Jenna Kisner provided a lot of energy and ground ball controls for Acalanes.  Bush and Ross each contributed two draw controls.  The Dons offense was spread out across ten different shooters.  Seniors Katie Welch and Sabrina Elliott both came back from injuries to face their longtime league rival.  Senior Kelsey Wendt fed an assist, as did Whitmore.  Kelcey Higgins ably represented the senior class with stalwart defense, helping to hold the Mats to 2 goals in the first half.

NCS brackets should be released Saturday afternoon and the Dons look forward to having another shot at teams they have come close to beating in the regular season.  The first playoff game is anticipated for Wednesday night, time and location to be determined.

Apr 28 – Girls Lacrosse Acalanes Dominates Dublin

The Lady Dons took their home field for a pleasant and productive evening of lacrosse on Thursday night, dominating a Dublin team that struggled against a potent display of ball control from the home team.  The Dons went up early and never looked back, with nine players scoring fifteen goals and six providing high caliber assists.  The Dublin team could only find the goal three times.

Junior Julia Mueller had three goals to go with her three draw controls to lead the Dons offense.  Susie Bush, Kelsey Wendt, Anna DeRoque, and Sophie Ross put up two goals each, along with Emma Workman, Maddie Guzaitis, and Claire Gallagher for a goal each.  Sophomore Sydney Louie, in her varsity debut, scored once for the Dons.  Assists came from Marie Whitmore, Grace Andronico, DeRoque, Louie, Gallagher, and twice from Sophie Ross.  Marie Whitmore led the Dons in draw control with four, and Kelcey Higgins continued her stalwart defense with three ground balls and one caused turnover.  Emma Workman and Anna DeRoque each forced two Dublin turnovers.

Although it appeared from the stands to be a quiet night in the goal for senior Samantha Repstad, she found the ball 11 times, keeping the game firmly in control for the Dons.

In the last week of regular season play, the Dons will see Alhambra in Martinez on Tuesday night and Miramonte at home on Friday at 7 for senior night.

Apr 16 – Girls Lacrosse

The Lady Dons went down in overtime after a hard fought battle and excellent play against a still-undefeated Dougherty Valley team on Friday night.

After an early season humbling loss to the league opponent, the Dons came out on fire, putting the first goal on the board courtesy of Sophie Ross, and going up 5 to 2 at halftime. The first half was dominated by a rapid fire shooting gallery at senior goalie Samantha Repstad, who stopped almost everything that came her way. By the end of the game, Repstad had a season high 17 saves. Both officials and Dougherty Valley coaches commented at the desk on the extraordinary evening Repstad had in the goal. Virtually every stop was a master clinic in goalkeeping. Although the Dons had a lighter roster due to injuries and a music trip to Los Angeles, everyone on the field contributed positively to the effort. Marie Whitmore had two goals to lead the scoring, but had plenty of company from Julia Mueller, Susie Bush, Emma Workman, Anna DeRoque, and the game starter from Ross. The last goal came from an “own goal” situation caused by Dougherty Valley. Ross also contributed two assists with one each from Kelsey Wendt and Katrina Lee. In the circle, Ross continued her strong play with six draw controls; one each came from Whitmore, Kelcey Higgins, and Bush. Strong defensive play from Higgins and Whitmore also helped control the game and keep the scoring down, and almost everyone on the field contributed at least one ground ball pick up for the Dons. It was a great night of lacrosse even if the ending wasn’t all that the vocal Dons supporters hoped for.

More league play continues next week on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. at home for the rapidly improving Acalanes Dons.

Katie Welch stormed her way to the goal after several free position shots were stopped, went wide or were called back for shooting space violations. Welch found the net after a game in which she covered both ends of the field aggressively, picking up five loose balls and putting constant pressure on the Las Lomas offense.

Julia Mueller had been driving the Dons game up until then with four goals, and Susie Bush added two, with the final goal coming from Sophie Ross. Ross continued her strong play in the center circle with five draw controls and was the frequent target of Las Lomas defensive players, including an illegal check that sent her to the sidelines for several minutes. Trainer extraordinaire Chris Clark had her back on the field for the last ten seconds of the first half. Goalie Sam Repstad had five saves with a couple at close range from Las Lomas’s fast break offense.

They’ve already seen some things they don’t see too often, like an “own goal” against Campo (with an initial push from sophomore Susie Bush who unfortunately doesn’t get credit for it according to US Lacrosse).

Tuesday night at California High School in San Ramon, those girls nearby the goal in the second half had the rare experience of seeing goalie Samantha Repstad bare hand a full power shot — and with her left hand no less. Congratulations to Sam on another achievement in a season in which she’s been a busy goaltender most every game.

Susie Bush continued her offensive streak with two goals, one on a free position shot. Anna DeRoque and Sophie Ross also found the net for the Lady Dons.

Whitmore spent more time on the defensive side of the field and helped the cause in the backfield with 4 caused turnovers and 5 loose ball controls.

Senior defender Sabrina Elliott had a breakthrough game with a caused turnover and three loose balls, and took advantage of those with good transitions up the field.

May 21 – Ladies Varsity Lacrosse loses NCS Semis 6-7.

Our Lady Dons lost a heart breaker Tuesday night to speedy SF University. Sophie Ross came out and scored quickly in the first minutes of play, Dons up 1-0.  Then the plethora of penalty shots were awarded to University.  Sabba Jweainat was incredible with 6 saves that half but University kept coming and our Ladies had a hard time holding onto the ball.  University scored on a penalty, 1-1.  Then Caith Wright got to the goal on a beautiful shot after Kate Anderson successfully stole a ball.  Ellie Higgins scored on a penalty shot after Caroline Newman got an important draw, 3-1 Dons.  Yet the penalty shots kept coming University’s way and at the half, University was up 4-3.

 

Our Ladies usually own the second half but last night it wasn’t the case.  The Dons had a hard time getting to the goal and had many shots on goal blocked by a fantastic Tufts bound goalie.  The shots just weren’t going our Dons way.

 

University kept scoring even with Sam Repstad’s 3 amazing saves in the goal.  Acalanes was down 3-6 in the second.  Marie Whitmore had the game of her life with a momentum changing steal near the University goal, preventing them from scoring again.  Caith Wright was able to grab an errant University pass in that same possession setting up Sophie Ross for a goal, Dons 4-6.  University was able to score again going up 4-7.  Alysa Mueller’s crisp check on an opponent and Jess Hennies quick scoop of the loose ball lead to Caroline scoring, Dons 5-7.  MacKenna Mullins picked up a popped ball, post shot to keep possession.  Again, Marie Whitmore had an amazing play and grabbed a grounder after a missed shot, setting up a goal for Caroline Newman, 6-7 Dons.

 

With 37 seconds left, Sophie Ross won the next draw.  Sophie Ross and Caroline Newman were determined and maintained possession, both taking last second shots.  All shots on goal missed, Dons lose 6-7.  A marvelous season ends and our Ladies had a winning overall record of 14-7.

 

Goals and Assists: Sophie Ross 2 goals, Caroline Newman 2 goals, Ellie Higgins 1 goals, Caith Wright 1 goal.

Draw Control: Caroline Newman 3, Sophie Ross 1.

Loose Ball: Caith Wright 3, Sophie Ross 3, Marie Whitmore 2, Ellie Higgins 2, Caroline Newman 2, Jessica Hennies 1, Alyssa Mueller 1, Date Anderson 1, MacKenna Mullins 1, Kelcey Higgins 1, and Katie Welch 1.

May 15 – Ladies Varsity Lacrosse wins NCS Quarterfinals 17-5

What you need to know first is that there are 50 minutes of playing time for every Girls High School lacrosse game. Our Lady Dons had to play 36 of those minutes down one player. In spite of this deficit our Ladies held Justin Siena High School from Napa to 5 total points, and shut them out completely in the second half.

How did this happen, you ask? Our officials were very generous, overzealous may be a better word, with yellow cards early in the game. During the first 11 minutes of play our Ladies were awarded 4 yellow cards in total. When a player receives two, the player is out for the game which means “man down.”

Here are the highlights. In the first half our Dons and Justin Siena traded goals and the score was close, even tied at 3-3 at the 18:07 mark. Then the fourth yellow card was awarded and our Dons seemed to realize that this game needed to pick up offensively. Our girls got to work scoring 8 more goals in the first half, bringing the score to 11-5. In addition, our Dons cleaned up on defense and did not incur the official’s yellow card wrath again. Sabba Jweainat was outstanding in the goal and had 7 saves.

In the second half defense continued to be solid and Acalanes did not allow another goal. Sam Repstad had 4 crucial saves in the goal. Acalanes held possession of the ball and when they didn’t have the ball the defense caused some key turnovers. Blake Balfrey had a brilliant interception and so did Sophie Ross. Jessica Hennies wrecked havoc, as usual, scooping up 3 loose ground balls. Caroline Newman hustled for 4 key balls as well. All in all, our Ladies scored 6 in the second half, bringing the score to 17-5 and an NCS play off win.

Apr 30 – Lady Dons LAX beat the Mats in dramatic fashion, 12 – 11

Thursday night the Dons faced a fierce rival, the Mats, on a balmy evening at the stadium. No win is easy and nothing came easy to our Dons tonight. The game was tight from start to finish.  The Mats exploded on the first draw scoring in just 17 seconds.  The Dons returned the favor on the next draw and Ellie Higgins got her first of 5 goals in the next 19 seconds of play.  Score 1:1.  Sophie Ross managed 3 goals in the first half, 2 on penalty shots and 1 by sheer will. This continued back and forth throughout the first half and the game was tied 6-6 with 5:59 to go.

 

Defensively we couldn’t have asked for more as Caith Wright, Katie Welch, Alyssa Mueller and Marie Whitmore were relentless and kept the Mats at bay the best they could.  Ellie Higgins managed another great shot for a goal and Caroline Newman finessed for 2 goals in the first half as well.  But the Mats were hard to contain, their Goalie made a key save with 48 seconds left in the half, and then a questionable foul called on Acalanes resulted in a penalty shot for Miramonte, and quickly assisted goal with only 5 seconds left, to put Miramonte up 7-8 at the half.

 

Starting the second half, our Dons came storming out of the castle.  Sophie Ross quickly grabbed the draw, Holly Fleischmann passed to Ellie Higgins who cleared the field and rolled a shot to tie the game 8-8.  The Mats, still determined to get their long sought win, gained 2 quick possessions and took the lead again, this time up by 2: AHS 8 – Miramonte 10.

 

In the next possession, after Blake Balfrey grabbed a key loose ball from the Mats, Holly Fleischmann made a gorgeous pass to Caith Wright who scored pulling the Dons closer, 9-10.

 

On the next possession, Caith Wright made a gorgeous steal, but Umps called it back on another questionable call.  Sam Repstad made a key save to keep the Mats from pulling further ahead.  They maintained possession, then the ball came loose. Caith Wright grabbed the ball, passed it to Kelcey Wendt who passed it to Ellie Higgins who became possessed with the power to score.  She took it in herself from Wendt’s pass and tied it up 10 to 10.

 

Miramonte called a time out to try to interrupt Acalanes’ surge, but it was to no avail. Sophie Ross picked the next draw, threw a Hail Mary pass  to a wide open Ellie Higgins, and Ellie took it in for the lead, 11 – 10, in only 9 seconds of play.

 

But the Mats dug in and their physical play brought the game to another tie, 11 – 11 with just under 10 minutes left in the game – a long time in lacrosse.

 

The Mats continued their momentum to grab the next draw, and to grab a loose ball after their missed shot.  Then Marie Whitmore caused a huge and key turnover, ball became loose, and Kelcey Higgins swooped in, grabbed the ground ball, and ran it out, fending off very aggressive Miramonte players, intentionally fouling her.  (So it seemed.)  During this tumultuous period, with 6:10 on the clock, Sophie Ross was able to get the ball to Caith Wright who made an incredible goal, bringing the Dons to a 12 – 11 lead. But with  6 minutes left in the game, this lead was not a done deal. Anything was possible.

Mats would not lie down and they grabbed the next draw.  Valiantly, Katie Welch grabbed a loose ball, but then the Mats got it back on an Acalanes foul.  Acalanes fought hard to steal it back, but the Umps called fouls, and gave Miramonte 2 penalty shots.  With 1:06 left, the Mats almost capitalized on their second penalty shot, but Caroline Newman made a gorgeous interception right in front of their goal, preventing Miramonte from quick-sticking it in!!

The next 30 seconds were a hard fought scrabble.  First, the ball became loose and Miramonte was awarded the ball back by Umps. Then in what looked like a clean attempt to steal, Alyssa Mueller was given a yellow card and had to leave the field.  Acalanes was now a man down.

 

Miramonte had the opportunity of the game to tie it up with their penalty shot awarded with only 30 seconds left.  But the Lady Dons defensive dominance would have none of it.  Their free position shot was shut down by a key deflection, sending the ball out of bounds.  But, Mats maintained possession and another chance to send the game into overtime.

 

Caith Wright made another key deflection on a Miramonte shot causing a loose ball melee.  Blake Balfrey grabbed for the ball with only 12 seconds left on the clock.   AHS Coaches Katie Mitchell and Laura Harris called for a drop-your-sticks time out which gave the Dons an opportunity to set and hold onto the ball for a win. Final score:  Dons beat Mats, 12 to 11.

League play is not over however.  There are two more games left, 1 away at Alhambra, and the league closer v. Campolindo at home, on Friday May 8 which is also Senior Night.

 

Miramonte game recap:

Offense: Ellie Higgins 5 goals, Sophie Ross 3 goals + 2 assists, Caith Wright 2 goals, Caroline Newman 2 goals, and Holly Fleischmann 1 assist.

Draw Controls: Sophie Ross 13, Caroline Newman 2, Caith Wright 1, and Anna DeRoque 1.

Apr 23 – Ladies Varsity Lacrosse battles for league win against Dublin, 10-6

Our Dons played their hearts out Thursday night in a combative, defensive brawl with Dublin. Dublin’s speed and tenacity was fierce but not as fierce as our Dons’ determination to stay undefeated in league. The start was back and forth with long possessions on both sides. The Dons were up 6-3 at the half.

The second half was interrupted numerous times by penalty calls on both sides. Dublin came within 2 points with a score of 5 to 7. It is important to note that 50% of Dublin’s shots were penalty shots and that the umps were penalty happy which is putting it mildly. In the end, the Dons struggled and challenged and clashed, making way for Caith Wright and Ellie Higgins to get to the goal for a final score of 10-6.

Our defense was ferocious and Holly Fleischmann caused 2 incredible turnovers including an end of game interception that finished off any Dublin hope of a last goal. Jessica Hennies was forceful and also caused 2 turnovers. Blake Balfrey was responsible for an amazing interception. Caith Wright caused an important turnover as well.

The ball was batted around like a fly all night as Ellie Higgins and Sophie Ross wrangled 3, while Kelcey “Bubba” Higgins, Jessica Hennies, Alyssa Mueller landed 2, and Caith Wright, Holly Fleischmann, Blake Balfrey, MacKenna Mullins, Sabba Jweainat, Julia Mueller and Jackie Diede fought for 1 each.

Total scoring: Caith Wright with 5 goals, Ellie Higgins with 4 goals, Sophie Ross with 1 goal and 3 assists, Anna DeRoque with 1 assist and Holly Fleischmann 1 assist.

On the draw: Caith Wright with 4, Sophie Ross with 3, Alyssa Mueller 1, MacKenna Mullins 1, and Katie Welch with 1.

In the goal, Sam Repstad had 4 and Sabba Jweainat had 4 saves.

Next game, April 30th, our Ladies face Campo at Home 7pm. Go DONS!

Our Dons were in amazing form last night with great clearing, amazing passing and strong defense. The Dons held the lead the entire night, but not by dominating the draw.

3-18 in non-league play Friday night.

The score at the half was 2-9 Novato. Caroline Newman had 2 goals and Kelcey Wendt had 1 goal assisted by Alysa Mueller who made a spectacular steal.

Draw Controls were even and very competitive. It was great to see senior, Blake Balfrey, back on the field after having been sidelined with an injury. She got a draw control. Novato’s fierce defense caused many turnovers resulting in a very busy night for our goalies.

Sam Repstad was special with 12 saves and a 57% save rate in the first half. Sabba Jweainat had 6 saves and a 56% save rate in the second half, outstanding!

Defense was strong but the real excitement was seeing our goalies Sabba (race you to the net) Jweainat and Sam Repstad play some offense. Sabba took a shot and so did the powerful Sam Repstad. And yes, they each had 3 saves in the goal as well.

Enjoy the break!

Mar 5 – Acalanes Varsity Lacrosse Girls’ Season Opener

Similar to all 6 past championship AHS Girls Lax teams, pre-league started with a tough match against a deep with talent Monte Vista squad, who already had a win under their belts, whereas last night’s game was AHS’ first of the season.

The good news about last night’s game: AHS’ new Head Varsity Coach Katie Mitchell and her Assistant Laura Harris guided their team well and AHS improved dramatically in snagging first possessions (Draw Controls) over last year’s match v. MV.

Opening with #54 Sophie Ross‘ first goal of the game, had MV playing catch up in the back and forth during the first 9 possessions. Other goal-makers were #9 Caroline Newman, #5 Ellie Higgins, #4 Caith Wright, and again #54 Sophie Ross, when she drilled in a Free Position shot. Score was AHS 5 – MV 4 when MV called a time out.

Regrouped and restrategized, MV then took the next 5 draws and scored the next 5 goals, (aided by several AHS turnovers including a bizarre call on an AHS mouthguard!) to pull ahead 5 – 9.

Before the end of the first half, an intense back and forth during which each team stole possession from the other, culminated in #5 Ellie Higgins picking the ball out of an even more intense scrum in front of MV’s goal, and scoring.
Score was AHS 6 – MV 9 at the half.
The second half was equally hard fought, however MV’s depth, aided by more AHS turnovers, meant AHS could not close the gap. Final score AHS 8 – MV 15.
Now that opening game jitters are over, we’ll see how AHS does v. cross town rival Las Lomas at home next Tuesday, March 10. JV at 5:30 and varsity at 7:00 pm. Come to the games and find out!

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.

Mar 28 – Girls Lacrosse Wins Another

With not quite recovered muscles from the hard-fought game v. Monte Vista the night before, and with the opponent’s second half surge coming back from an AHS 10 – Dougherty Valley 4 lead at half time, the Lady Dons defeated the quick and nimble Wildcats, in a closer than expected and exciting contest (they were ahead 14 – 15 for a brief time), AHS 18 – DV 16.

Friday’s win makes it 5 wins, 0 losses for the Lady Dons in DFAL League play. Kate Hansen, subbing for Sabba Jweainat in-goal, (who’s out injured from a PE injury, not a LAX injury), and having not even practiced in-goal for over a year, stepped up to plate with 12 saves and a 43% save rate – 6 of those 12 saves racked up during the second half’s draw #24 field play, during which 2 AHS players received Yellow cards within 30 seconds of each other. That meant AHS was 2 Donas down, but AHS still managed to score this possession with Kate Fellner’s goal after she came back on the field from her 2 minute time out. Both Kates played great!

Mar 27 – Acalanes Girls Lacrosse Close but Not Quite

After 2 easy defeats of 2 cross-town rivals, Campo and Las Lomas, (best games of the season for #26 Ellie Higgins and #9 Caroline Newman), the Lady Dons faced the NCS’s #6 ranked team Monte Vista on MV’s home turf last night.  
 
MV blasted out of the gate with the first 4 Goals of the game, aided by the Donas’ slow start on Draw Controls, coming up with only 25% of them in the first half.  AHS battled back, with #16 Chloe Landry’s 4 Goals (she accomplished some by picking off Interceptions – 3 this game – a stellar feat), and #23 Kate Fellner’s 1 Goal.
With 2:30 left in the first half, score was AHS 5 – MV 7.  Then MV got the next 2 Goals, one of them with only 4 seconds left (rats!), to end the half AHS 5 – MV 9.
Half time coaching by AHS’ Whitney Campitiello and Katie Nelson did its trick, and the Lady Dons fired back with the first 5 Goals of the second half – 2 by #26 Ellie Higgins, and 1 each by #4 Caith Wright, #9 Caroline Newman, and #23 Kate Fellner.  Score now AHS 10 – MV 9!
MV called a timeout, and a scoring back and forth ensued.  MV to tie, AHS #16 Chloe Landry’s Goal to pull ahead, MV to tie again.  Score now AHS 11 – MV 11.
MV then got the next 2 DCs out of the air (an MV forte), and the next 2 Goals.  AHS dug back in to get the next DC (#14 Alyssa Mueller grabbed the ball from the ground), and #16 Chloe Landry made her Free Position shot, (FP shots are caused by opponent’s foul), but the Lady Dons were still down by 1, 12 – 13.
Both teams showed strength and stamina with a new round of backs and forths.  Whichever team grabbed the DC, also scored the Goal, but in between, there was rough and intense play with fouls and turn overs by both teams.
First MV, to pull ahead by 2, then AHS to draw within 1 (#23 Kate Fellner’s), then MV again – up by 2 again.  Another MV Draw pick (2 in a row for their #17), + MV Goal increased MV’s lead to 3: AHS 13 – MV 16 with 3:45 left in the game.
Time out called by AHS coaches.
Back at play, pesky MV #17 picked her 3rd DC in a row, and they played slow down and hold to preserve their lead.  Then AHS Goalie Samantha Repstad saved and held a tough shot to prevent MV’s lead from growing further.  AHS’ new possession resulted in a Goal by #23 Kate Fellner with only 16 seconds left in the game!
11 seconds later AHS #9 Caroline Newman scored from #16 Chloe Landry’s DC – AHS now within 1 goal with 5 seconds left in the game!
MV panicked and AHS gets the next draw by MV’s foul, but there just wasn’t enough time left to capitalize.  Final score AHS 15 – MV 16.  A loss, but an admirable battle against a tough competitor.
 
What’s a great way to start Spring Break?  Come see the Lady Dons go up against Dougherty Valley tonight at AHS. JV at 5:30 and Varsity at 7:00.

Mar 14 – Another Big Win for Girls Varsity Lacrosse Friday

Similar to the Alhambra away game earlier in the week, AHS Lady Dons easily beat the Dublin Gaels 20 – 3 in this year’s home turf opener.

Center midfielder #16 Chloe Landry dominated the draw controls, personally snagging almost half the first possessions in the game (10 of the 25) then feeding the ball to various teammates, in addition to scoring many goals herself. She was helped by #23 Kate Fellner and #4 Caith Wright, with 2 draw controls each.

Again showing team development and depth, 9 separate players scored goals and/or assists, with high accuracy. 71% of the Lady Dons’ shots v. the Gaels, converted to goals.

Defenders did a great job too, forcing many Dublin turnovers with successful checks and steals, notably #20 Blake Balfrey, #28 Camila Mendez-Otero, and #14 Alyssa Mueller, a crowd pleaser.

Caith Wright

Mar 11 – A Big Win for Varsity Girls Lacrosse

In the DFAL season opener Tuesday night on Alhambra’s home turf, and guided by new Varsity Coaches Whitney Campitiello and Katie Nelson, AHS’ dominance on first possessions, (“Draw Controls”), notably by #23 Kate Fellner, #49 Katie Welch, #16 Chloe Landry, #4 Caith Wright, #39 MacKenna Mullins, and #9 Caroline Newman, translated into dominance on field play and scoring.

At the half, Lady Dons up 17 to 2. They went on to soundly defeat Alhambra 23 – 3. A great way to start league play!

Scoring was only a part of the success story. Defenders never get hard stats, (Goals and Assists), but play a key role.

Defender #14 Alyssa Mueller scooped up several Alhambra loose balls to win possession back to AHS and #4 Caith Wright swooped in for a razzle dazzle interception, run, and score.

Returning Goalie Sabba Jweainat had 3 saves to hold Alhambra to only 3 goals.

The Lady Dons showed their depth with 8 different players scoring Goals (G) and/or Assists (A). They were:

#9 Caroline Newman 8G + 0A = 8 points
#4 Caith Wright 3G + 2A = 5 points
#16 Chloe Landry 2G + 2A = 4 points
#26 Ellie Higgins 3G + 1A = 4 points
#52 Sophie Ross 3G + 1A = 4 points
#23 Kate Fellner 2G + 1A = 3 points
#49 Katie Welch 1G + 1A = 2 points
#39 MacKenna Mullins 1G + 0A = 1 point
#27 Kate Anderson 0G + 1A = 1 point

Apr 27 – JV Girls LAX results

The JV Girls Lax team beat Miramonte last night 15 – 3, to continue their undefeated-in-league-play streak. League record: 8 wins, 0 losses. Highlights: An even wider range of players earned hard stats: 13 in all, (in the Campo game on Tuesday, 10 different players earned hard stats), including another new player to score her first goal of the season – #31 Sophie LoughranSmith. #53 Melanie Toth had an especially quick-thinking goal after picking up a saved-by-Miramonte’s-goalie penalty shot that bounced back onto the field. The team had a very high number of assists this game: 7 + 1 feed (not an official assist because goal-maker took too many steps before shooting), whereas they’ve been averaging only 2 assists per game. This shows further development in working as a team, under Coach Emily Hook’s guidance. Other stats makers were: #15 Ellie Higgins‘ 4 goals + 2 assists, #4 Caith Wright’s 2 goals + 3 assists, #39 MacKenna Mullins‘ 1 goal + 1 assist, #35 Allison Roullier’s 1 goal + 1 assist, #18 McKenna Koepke’s 1 goal, #29 Holly Fleischmann’s 1 goal, #33 Piper Keeley’s 1 goal, #46 Elena Fromer’s 1 goal, #47 Kate Anderson’s 1 goal, first half Goalie Kate Hansen’s 5 saves (including 3 against penalty shots), for a 71% success rate, and second half Goalie Mollie Nelsen’s 4 saves, for an 80% success rate.

Staff Reports

No. 2 Danville-Monte Vista lost its first game in more than two years on Thursday, when Acalanes upset the Mustangs, 17-10, in a CIF-North Coast Section girls game. The game was tied at seven at the half before Acalanes scored 10 second-half goals to put the game out of reach.
 
Acalanes led, 7-4 with three minutes, 31 seconds to play in the first half, when Danville-Monte Vista scored three unanswered goals to go to halftime at 7-7, but Acalanes adjusted its draw strategy and took advantage of open players while Devon Frazer and Elizabeth Landry were double-teamed, according to Acalanes assistant coach Kelly Quinn.

In the final 25 minutes, Acalanes goalie Ariana Johnson held Danville-Monte Vista to three goals.

“They are a terrific team, very well coached and very disciplined in their approach to the game on both sides of the ball,” said. Quinn. “We were fortunate to have played them after having faced several of the other EBAL teams earlier in the season.”

The game was the season opener for Danville-Monte Vista while Acalanes improved to 3-3.
 
The Dons got multiple goals from five players, including five goals and two assists from Devon Frazier and three goals each from Elizabeth Landry (one assist) and Courtney Neff. Niki Quinn and Brooke Winslow each scored two goals.
 
For the Mustangs, juniors Paige Southmayd scored four goals and Taylor James scored three. Goalie Monica Wilson had 10 saves.

Danville-Monte Vista is off until March 22, when it visits No. 13 Carondelet.
