Logan Defeats Moreau, Loses to Amador
Submitted By Steve Burmaster
The Logan Colts trampled the Moreau Mariners in men's volleyball on March 29 on Logan's home court with a 3-0 victory. The first game was close as Logan just squeaked by with a 25-22 win. There was quite a gap in score for following two games, however, as the Colts managed a win of 25-17 for game two and massacre of 25-14 for the third game, guaranteeing Logan the set.
Alvin Nguyen, senior and middle blocker for Logan, made his starting debut of the season and did not disappoint his fans with his high-flying acrobatic moves and straight down kills. Seniors and outside hitters, Cameron Salcedo and Andrew Nguyen provided steady passing, digging and very smart hitting throughout the match. Jeric Yamboa, Logan senior and right side hitter, also had quite a few kills and assists in the front row. His counterpart, Logan junior, Noah DeloSantos made a few diving saves to extend rallies. Logan student and senior Neal Barrina led by example with his consistent, smart setting and great defense in both the front and back row.
Two days later, Logan finished as a quarter finalist with a 3-1 match record in the GOLD Division at the Deer Valley Volleyball Tournament held on March 31. The Logan Colts first participated in a pool play against Concord High School and came away with a 25-9 and a 25-11 win. They next took on Foothill High School, winning the first match 25-23, losing the second 19-25, and taking the tie 15-8 to place first in the pool. Logan then played to determine if they were to participate in the gold or silver bracket. The Colts defeated the second in their pool, Acalanes High School in a nail-biter match to qualify them not only for the gold bracket, but for the quarter finals. During the quarter-final game, James Logan was defeated by the Amador Valley dons in two matches resulting in a 17-25 and a 21-25 score. Logan will be playing Mission San Jose next on Tuesday, April 3 at 6 p.m. Both teams are thus far undefeated in the MVAL.
