Logan Colts split three games
By Helen Tracey-Noren
What started off as a close game of softball ended in a four-point win for James Logan against San Ramon Valley March 21. The Colts' Varsity women's softball team came away with a 10-6 victory over the Wolves. However, Pleasanton's Amador Valley High School won 2-0 the next day against James Logan on March 22 at Amador's home field.
The first point put on the board was by Logan at the bottom of the second inning. San Ramon retaliated with two more runs at the top of the fourth, putting the Wolves in the lead. Logan scored two more runs at the bottom of the fourth inning and shut out the Wolves at the top of the fifth. The Colts then continued to rack up points by scoring five more runs at the bottom of the fifth inning, giving them an 8-2 lead over San Ramon. The Wolves proceeded to get four more points in the remaining two innings and gave up only two runs to Logan. But in a nail-biting game such as this, every point counts and James Logan ended victoriously with a 10-6 win. This game marked the fifth loss out of eight games for San Ramon.
The next day's game against Amador, the first two innings went by scoreless. It wasn't until the bottom of the third inning that Ashley Lotoszynski, a sophomore at Amador Valley, hit a home run to put the first points up on the scoreboard. The Dons were able to shut out the Logan Colts when it was their turn to bat at the top of the fourth inning, but the Colts were not as lucky. Amador managed to score another run at the bottom of the fourth inning. Lotoszynski came to the plate to bat and sent teammate and senior Brienna Brown running in to score the final point of the game. The remainder of the three innings was scoreless as well.
James Logan also managed to pull out a closeout win against Mission San Jose. The Colts won in a 14-0 shutout in Tuesday's conference game. The game didn't start off well for the Mission Warriors as the Colts put up five quick runs on the board at the bottom of the first inning, and the hits just kept coming. Logan scored four points in the second inning and another five in the third inning. The Warriors were defeated and added a tally to the win column for James Logan, giving them an overall standing of 4-1 this season.
