Acalanes girls repeat as Division II champs

  • The Acalanes girls lacrosse team proved to be the class of the NCS Division II tournament once again, capturing its second straight championship and third in four years with a 21-9 victory over Piedmont on May 22. Chloe Landry, a four-year varsity player headed to Cal, led Acalanes with seven goals. Kate Fellner added five -- all before halftime -- and Ellie Higgins had four for the Dons, who outscored their opponents 62-15 in their playoff championship run. Six different players scored for Acalanes, which bolted out to a 3-0 lead less than two minutes into the game. The Dons never trailed and led 9-4 at halftime.
