Men's Volleyball: Logan loses to Mission San Jose
Submitted By Coach Steve Burmaster
James Logan suffered their first MVAL loss this season at the hand of the Mission San Jose Warriors Tuesday, April 3: 15-25, 20-25, 20-25. Thus far, MSJ remains undefeated in league play with Logan close behind ranking second place in the MVAL with a 4-1 record. The Logan Colts are also ranked eighth in the North Coast Section (or East Bay Area) rankings. The first game was won by the Warriors 25-15, but Logan pushed back in the second game and making it quite the nail-biter. MSJ won the second and third games, both with a score of 25-20 and securing their undefeated title.
Next match for Logan is at American on Thursday, April 5. Last season, American and James Logan battled through a very long five-game match. American won the first two games before Logan stormed back to take the next two and force a fifth game that James Logan won to secure a second place finish in the MVAL and a berth in the North Coast Sectionals tournament as the seventh seed. A lot will be riding on the match this year again as there has been a long-standing, friendly rivalry between the American and Logan volleyball programs.
