The Varsity Girls soccer team faced off against a very strong league opponent, Clayton Valley Charter, on their Senior Night on Wednesday. It was a night of pomp and circumstance as the Dons celebrated 15 amazing seniors. Here is the list of celebrated seniors: Taylor Boren, Maile Broad, Kate Carter, Beth Daughters, Dylan Hagglund, Georgia Karas, Natasha Malinovsky, Ellie Meyer, Gabby Ortale, Eliza Parry, Olivia Pelligrini, Jordan Pratt, Elle Skvarna, Ivy Souza, and Keri Wendt.
The first half started with the Dons kicking off. Georgia Karas, a 4-year Varsity letterman, has been injured all season due to a knee injury she sustained last year. She was able to be in the starting lineup, receive the kickoff pass, only to kick it out of bounds in order to be able to touch the ball one last time on the Acalanes field. Truly a memorable moment for her as this was her final game as a Don. We love you, Georgia!
The Dons played tough all game, and it was great to see all of our seniors on the field throughout the game. Even though they lost 1-0, they all played extremely well and hung in there with a very talented and very physical Clayton Valley Charter.
Next up for the Dons is NCS! Will know their seeding on Sunday night so stay tuned.
Congratulations to all of our wonderful Seniors. As always, GO DONS!
