Girls Lacrosse win big!

Girls Lacrosse win big!

On Tuesday, March 19 the Acalanes Girls Lacrosse team soundly defeated Dougherty Valley by a score of 12-5.  The game was marked by Acalanes’ dominant offense; they were led by Grace Gebhardt, who took the draw and managed to hold onto the ball for most plays; Emma Workman stepped in to gain the draw control on most of the other plays.  Goals were scored by Grace, Lauren Westergren, Claire Gallagher and Marcy Morse; Marcy also had several on-point assists.  Emma did an excellent job of forcing Dougherty Valley to turn over the ball.  Olivia Pelligrini, in her first year as the Varsity goalie, also had numerous solid saves, and the defense team of CoCo Fellner, Jordan Pratt and Jacqui Caufield did an excellent job of protecting the goal.  
The Lady Dons next play Ygnacio Valley at home on Friday, March 22 at 7pm.

Blue-ster Bash Fund-A-Need!

Blue-ster Bash Fund-A-Need!

This years Fund-A-Need is centered around continuing and improving our Strength and Conditioning program.  Strength and conditioning is critical for the safety and performance of all our athletes.   We rolled out the program in 2018/19 and it was well received by many teams/athletes. The main feedback was that more hours of S&C coaching is needed.  The goal for this year is to raise $22.5k. The majority of this will go towards paying for more S&C coach hours.  The remainder will go towards new equipment in the weight room.  We are partnering with Acalanes Football to help fund it.  Our current weight room is not up to par with that of  other schools in our district.  It is in desperate need of updating so we can remain competitive.  Improvements will help all athletes of all sports, including students with disabilities, allowing us to accommodate more athletes in the current space with better equipment and a better layout.   You will have an opportunity to help fund these great initiatives, that will benefit all Acalanes athletes, at the upcoming Blue-ster Bash during our Fund-A-Need segment of the live auction.

Girls Lacrosse Score Big!

Girls Lacrosse Score Big!

The Acalanes girls Varsity lacrosse team soundly defeated Alhambra on Friday Night at home by a score of 19-3.  This was an effort by the entire team.  Olivia Pelligrini played strong in goal, and the Acalanes defense led by CoCo Fellner allowed few shots on goal throughout the game.  The offense also had a strong night; goals were made by 9 different players, led by Maile Broad and Lauren Westergren.  Although Alhambra was outplayed throughout the evening, the players, coaches and spectators visiting from Alhambra maintained a positive spirit throughout the night and it was a pleasure to host them.
The Lady Dons next play an away game at Dougherty Valley on Tuesday March 19.
