Feb 24 – Girls Basketball Advances to NCS Semi-Final Round

The Lady Dons won a thriller in the second round of NCS playoffs Friday night 69 to 67 over Redwood.  It was a game of many momentum swings throughout.  The Dons raced out to an 8 point lead after one quarter.  The lead didn’t last long, as the resilient Redwood squad fought back and closed the gap to 1 point at halftime.  Momentum changed again in the 3rd quarter with Emma Godfrey asserting herself in the paint and an aggressive full court press being unleashed.

Emma Godfrey

The Lady Dons established a 10 point lead late in the 3rd, however, the tables turned again when Emma Godfrey picked up her 4th foul and then a technical which disqualified her for the rest of the game.  Redwood wasted no time storming back and built a lead as large as 6 points in the 4th quarter.  Finally, Roni Marrone and Brooke Panfili took over the game late in the 4th quarter and willed their way to victory.  Brooke Panfili was the high scorer on the night with 21 points, while Emma Godfrey added 18, Roni Marrone dropped 15 points, and Lauren Kobashigawa contributed 11 points.  The Lady Dons move on to play Montgomery Wednesday night in Santa Rosa.

The Lady Dons posted a 64 to 52 victory in round 1 of the NCS Division 2 playoffs Tuesday night over Rancho Cotate.  After a back and forth first half of play the Dons had a small halftime lead.  Both teams largely spent the first half feeling each other out.  Finally, the Dons began to assert themselves in the 3rd quarter behind the point guard leadership of Brooke Panfili, inside the paint domination of Emma Godfrey, and all around outstanding play of Roni Marrone.  The lead grew to double digits early in the 4th quarter and the girls didn’t look back the rest of the way.  Brooke Panfili made multiple key shots in the second half on her way to a game high 21 points.  Meanwhile, Emma Godfrey scored 18 points and Roni Marrone added 15 points.  The ladies are back in action Friday night at home for round 2 of the playoffs against Redwood!

Jan 24 – Girls Basketball vs. Campolindo

In a hard fought battle the Lady Dons fell short Tuesday to rival Campolindo High School.  Fans watched & cheered in anticipation as the Dons maintained control for most of the game. At halftime the Dons led by three.  Third quarter left fans on the edge of their seats as the lead floated back and forth between the rivals.  The Dons put up a good fight, shutting down Campo’s 3-point shooters and their dominant post player for most of the game. But foul trouble in the 4th quarter set the Dons back after fouling out two of three Post players and the third forced to play it safe after getting her fourth foul call.

Brooke Panfili led the way with 22 points and hit multiple key shots in the 2nd half to keep the Dons within striking distance.  Roni Marrone contributed with 13 points, while Lauren Kobashigawa added 10 points, but our Guards scoring power just wasn’t enough to take back the lead and the Dons fell short with a 78-62 loss.

Nov 30 – Girls Basketball

The Lady Dons went on the road Wednesday night to face off against power house Castro Valley Trojans.  Castro Valley is known to be a tough & physical team, having quick guards and high scoring shooters.  Going into the game was another challenge, as Coach Jim Lemmon is the former CYO Coach to the Lady Dons new Varsity Coach Ashley Valenzuela and Assistant Coach Christina Ozuna.

Our Lady Dons faced a close battle the entire way and ended halftime 25-23 in Trojans favor.  Walking away gassed from a fast-paced, hard pressing team, Coach Ashley rallied her players during half-time.  She quickly made some serious adjustments to her defense and the girls adjusted with ease.  The adjustments frazzled the Lady Trojans, but the Dons kept fighting and ended the 3rd quarter 35-35.

The Lady Dons continued to battle it out on the court and the Lady Trojans showed no mercy, doing everything they could to shut down Senior Point Guard, Brooke Panfili.  While Brooke remained heavily guarded, she continued to remain cool and calm, trusting in Coach Ashley to lead the way and make the needed play adjustments.  The team rallied together and thanks to the outstanding team defense and the efforts of Emma Godfrey, Veronica Marrone “Roni”, Olivia Sabbadini “Liv Sab”, Sabina Patel “Beanz”, Naomi House “Nai” and Sydney Louie “Syd” the girls took the lead in the 4th quarter bringing to 43-40.  From their the Lady Dons became unstoppable and pulled away, taking a victory and ending the game at 54-48.

While the Trojans held Brooke Panfili to 11 pts, Coach Ashley awarded her “Player of the Game” for staying calm and cool under the intense pressure.

Lady Dons hit the road once again heading to Middleton High School Friday night!

Congratulations to Lady Dons Basketball

JV took 2nd place in the Pittsburg High School, Lady Pirates 4th Annual JV tournament. It was our 1st appearance in the tournament this year and there was some tough competition. Our JV team pulled out some impressive, yet tough wins against Colfax on Thursday and Pittsburg on Friday to play for the Championship on Sat.

We faced off against a strong Monte Vista team who beat the competition the night before by scoring over 50 points. Our strong defensive down low held Monte Vista to only 29 points, but in the end, we fell short, taking 2nd place with a 23-29 score. We are so proud of our girls for how hard they played in a well matched game. A special congratulations to Sydney Louie, Sabina Patel and Kailey Meyer for being selected by Pittsburg to the All Tournament Team.

JV leads their season with a very impressive 3-2 start and is looking to improve last year’s overall record of 20-6 and repeat their DFAL JV record of 12-0. Congratulations Lady Dons JV Basketball.

A very big congratulations to our Lady Dons Varsity Basketball! These ladies started their season with a mission and a goal and they are running straight thru the competition to achieve it.

Our Varsity girls took 1st Place in the San Francisco, Lincoln High School Mustang Classic. The competition was fierce and our Lady Dons were definitely out to make a statement. We beat Immaculate Conception on Thursday, 65-13 to face off against a tough Lincoln High on Friday. Our ladies were able to pull out another impressive win and defeated Lincoln High School, 67-39 to play for the Championship game on Sat against Amador Valley.

The Amador Valley game was a perfect match up. The teams battled it out on the court, going toe-to-toe throughout the game. But in the end our Lady Dons came out victorious defeating Amador Valley 47-44 and won the Championship. A special congratulations goes to Roni Marrone & Emma Godfey for winning All Tournament Team and to Julia Lyons for winning MVP.

Our Lady Dons Varsity Basketball Team starts their season with an impressive 5-0 start making a bold and fierce statement “Look out DFAL! We’re coming!”

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.”

Feb 4 – Lady Dons Varsity Basketball Electrifies The Home Crowd

With A Comeback Victory Over Campolindo 64 – 61

The Lady Dons were the “Belles of the Ball” on Tuesday night!!!

The Lady Dons used the energy from the very loud and supportive home crowd to achieve four very special accomplishments on Tuesday night in Lafayette:

  1. They completed an amazing 21-point second half comeback to beat their rivals from Moraga, Campolindo
  2. They pulled-off the biggest upset of the DFAL season by taking down the second place Cougars
  3. They snapped a 12-game losing streak to Campolindo that dates back to the final year of the George W. Bush Administration – 2008
  4. They electrified and unified the entire Acalanes fan base – parents, Lafayette families, the student body, Stanley Middle School students and the faculty

2013 – 2014 Acalanes vs. Campolindo Girls Basketball Game Scores (prior to the 2/2/2014 game):

  • 12/13/2013: Campolindo – 70  vs.  Acalanes 29 (41 point deficit)
  • 1/10/2014: Campolindo – 71  vs.  Acalanes 53 ( 18 point deficit)

Having watched some of the previous Acalanes vs. Campolindo match-ups this season , I was just hoping that the Lady Dons would keep the game under a 15-point deficit.  Because on paper, the match-up with Campolindo did not look good for the Lady Dons.  But that is why they don’t play games on paper…they play them on the court.  On Tuesday night, the Lady Dons were ready to make some history.

When Campolindo’s final shot attempt to tie the game missed the basket and the final buzzer sounded, the Acalanes gym exploded with cheers and applause for the Lady Dons.  One could not help but get swept-up in the unbelievable 4th quarter effort delivered by this incredibly young Lady Dons team.  I thought first year Varsity Girls Head Coach, Chad Wellon, was going to float out of the gym after the surreal comeback victory by his team.  Talking with Chad after the boys varsity basketball game, he was convinced that the energy from the Acalanes crowd fueled his girls to victory.  One of the highlights of the entire evening was when the Lady Dons walked back into the gym during the boys varsity game and the Acalanes crowd gave them another rousing round of applause.  It was indeed a great night for the Lady Dons.

Campolindo vs. Acalanes Game Score Re-cap:

  • 1st Quarter: Campolindo – 17  vs. Acalanes – 18
  • 2nd Quarter (halftime): Campolindo – 46  vs. Acalanes – 25
  • 3rd Quarter: Campolindo – 56  vs.  Acalanes – 46
  • 4th Quarter (Final Score): Campolindo – 61  vs. Acalanes – 64

Without a doubt, the energy from the partisan Acalanes crowd helped the Lady Dons.  However, it still took some brilliant offensive performances by the Lady Dons to pull-off this 21-point comeback.  Roni Marrone finished the game with 12 big points for the Lady Dons.  Emma Godfrey was relentless on the boards and was fearless when attacking the basket on Tuesday night.  Emma also finished the game with 12 critical points.  Then there was “The Little Engine That Could,” Julia Lyons, who rained down shots from all over the court for the Lady Dons.  Julia finished the game with a team high 21 big time points.  Please keep in mind that points are not the only measurement of a players value to a team.  This was a total team victory.  I saw many different Lady Dons stealing the basketball, blocking shots, playing stellar defense, making great passes and clearly out-hustling the Campolindo Cougar girls.  Every young lady in an Acalanes uniform had a hand in this incredible victory.  This is a game that the entire Lady Dons Team will grow from.

The Acalanes Lady Dons will look to continue their magic next Tuesday, on the road in San Ramon, versus Dougherty Valley.  Tip-off for this game will be at 5:30pm.  In the Lady Don’s previous match-up against the Dougherty Valley Wildcats, they lost a close contest, 45 – 40, at home in Lafayette.  Coach Wellon will have his girls prepared to avenge this loss.

Again, congratulations to the Lady Dons on a thrilling win over your rival, Campolindo.

As always…Go Dons!!!

Jan 10 – Lady Dons Basketball Mauled by Campo Cougars 71-53

There were two entirely different games played last night. If you attended the first 13 minutes of the game, Acalanes looked like it was on a roll and was well on it’s way to winning against Campo. The first quarter started off with the Lady Dons dominating the floor and scoring 6 fast break baskets to Campo’s two 3-pointers.

Acalanes maintained their lead for most of the first half. The tempo of the game seemed to change when the score tied 32-32 near the end of the 2nd quarter. Once Campo tied the score, the Cougars added 8 unanswered points, ending the half at 40-32.

Campo dominated the second half of the game. The Lady Dons were stunned starting off the third quarter when the Cougars went on a 10-2 point run, falling behind 50-34. Campo’s freshman Brooke Panfilli poured in 3-pointers virtually at will.

The Lady Dons regained their composure in the 4th quarter, with a valiant effort led by Julia Lyons. Carrie Trent got back her 3-point scoring groove in the 4th quarter, but the damage was already done. The Lady Dons returned to their fast break offense, but the Cougars matched the Dons basket-for-basket in the 4th quarter.

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.

Feb 12 – Seniors shine, but first half turnovers keep Lady Dons Out of NCS

On senior night, the Lady Dons battled with Campolindo, who boasted a 20-4 record coming into the game. In a must win situation to extend the Lady Dons season into the NCS playoffs, Acalanes came up short in a 44-61 loss.

Dec 11 – Freshman Girls Basketball Win Exciting Game

The Dons freshman girls basketball team hosted St. Francis of Mountain View on Tuesday in a terrific game. The Dons were down by as much as 7 points in the second half but never gave up. They played great defense down the stretch and a key basket by Carly Porep from the corner rallied the team to an exciting 41-40 win. The St. Francis team had good shooters and had the final possession. A blocked shot by Josie Curless and a key rebound by Sophie Ross of a missed shot secured the victory.

“I am really proud of the way the team played today,” said coach Chad Wellon. “They played strong defense and really worked well as a team. We are improving every game”.
The freshman Dons are now 8-4 on the season and play at San Ramon Valley this Thursday at 4 pm.
