Logan girls track continues to roll
By Giovanni Albanese Jr.
North Coast Section area track meets were held on Saturday, May 21, throughout the Bay Area. As part of the Bay Shore Area, Mission Valley and Hayward Area athletic leagues met at James Logan High School. California School for the Deaf and Fremont Christian were part of the Class A area, taking place at Montgomery High School.
As was the case for last week's MVAL Championship, James Logan was the top team in the league. Although the boys side didn't top the area meet, they finished fourth (with 44 points), ahead of any local school. Hayward High finished just behind Logan in fifth (39). Washington took sixth (29), Newark seventh (28), American 11th (18), Moreau Catholic 18th (6), John F. Kennedy 20th (4), Mt. Eden 21st (2) and Tennyson 25th (0) to round out the local boys standings. St. Mary's took first with 85 points.
But the Logan girls continued to roll, riding the momentum from its MVAL Championships win, and winning the area meet on Saturday. Logan finished first with 103 points. Newark was the next-closest local school, finishing third with 41 points. Hayward of the HAAL took sixth (30), Mission San Jose ninth (23), American 15th (11), Washington 16th (9) and Moreau and JFK both tied for 18th (6).
In the Class A area, CSD and Fremont Christian boys both placed, but neither one of the girls sides did. CSD finished ninth in the boys final team standings with 20 points. Fremont Christian took 24th with six points. Fort Bragg won the competition for the boys with 66 points; University won the girls competition with 74 points.
