Mission Valley and Hayward Area athletic leagues' spring sports teams continued their play as the regular season began this week.
On March 15, James Logan Colts Volleyball faced College Park High School and emerged with a close victory behind their hot start. The Colts won the first and second sets by a combined 21 points, before losing the next two, including a dramatic and closely contested 28-30 fourth set. Logan would regroup in time to preserve their victory as they won the deciding set 15-10 to even their record out at .500 for the season.
Logan's badminton team also had a match on March 15, facing the reigning league champions, Mission San Jose. Logan would come up short as MSJ won 15 of the 17 matches.
A day later, on March 16, the John F. Kennedy Titans boys volleyball team looked for their sixth victory in a row in a match against San Leandro. The Titans would cruise to victory, embarrassing San Leandro in three straight sets, including a 25-3 mockery in the second set. Kennedy's Andrew Cecere was the star of the game, recording 20 assists.
Moreau Catholic High School also continued its undefeated tear with a nonleague victory over De Anza. Mariner Nick Kinast was active on offense and defense, leaving his mark on the game with nine kills, 10 digs and two blocks.
Thursday, March 17, featured Moreau boys golf playing the Arroyo Dons at Lake Chabot. Moreau Catholic's Herrera shot the lowest score at 41, five above par. The Mariners advanced to 2-0 in league while the Dons fell to 0-2.
Moreau athletics wasn't done yet as the boys tennis team fought off San Leandro in a league bout, 4-3. Moreau fell behind early, losing the 3D and 2D matches to San Leandro. The Mariners would take the 1D match, along with the 4S, 3S and 2S matches to preserve their victory. Moreau tennis is 3-2 in league and 4-4 overall.
In MVAL action, American High School would end the Kennedy Titans undefeated streak at six in a 3-0 straight set victory. The Titans came close, losing the first and second games by a mere five points but American setter Kim's 28 assists were too much to overcome.
