Volleyball: James Logan Volleyball Report
Submitted By Coach Steve Burmaster
On October 30, the James Logan Colts defeated the American Eagles 3-0 (28-26, 25-18, 26-24). While it wasn't a pretty match, it was nice for the Colts to come out on top in an "ugly win."
After honoring American's four seniors in a "Senior Night" tribute, both teams were very sluggish in Game 1. Although American pulled to a 6-0 lead, the Colts were able to tie it up at 6-6. The match went back and forth with James Logan getting its first lead of the game at 15-14, before American tied it up at 15-15. Both teams held game point, but it was Logan's determination and intestinal fortitude that pulled out the Game 1 victory for the Colts. The Colts more or less dominated Game 2, holding the lead for most of the match. Game 3 saw the Colts down by as many as seven points before falling behind 17-21 and 20-24. With the game on the line, the Colts rallied back for the come-from-behind victory, winning 26-24, and sealing the deal with a kill by Colts Senior Adrianna Waqa for match point.
On November 1, the Colts lost in straight sets to the Moreau Catholic Mariners (23-25, 17-25, 21-25). The Colts played very well in the first game of the match and led 23-20, but could not close it out as the Mariners went on to score five unanswered points to take Game 1. Game 2 saw the Colts fall behind by 10 points early. They were able to close the gap to within 6 points before losing by 8. Game 3 was a seesaw battle, with each team holding leads until Moreau made a run in the end to take the game and the match.
