Track competition tightens this year
Submitted By Mike Heightchew
Even those that follow Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) track and expect a showdown between the Newark Memorial Cougars and James Logan Colts again this year, are taking note of the Mission San Jose Warriors. In a March 28 meeting with the Cougars, the Warriors hoped to pick up where they left off last year, a strong MVAL contender.
This year, Warrior speed was evidence of hard work in the off season as they stayed close and competitive with Cougar runners. The Cougars were unable to shake off the Warriors but, in the end, had a bit more firepower to prevail. Newark Memorial now looks toward a meeting with League rival, James Logan on April 10.
