Women's Softball: Lady Colts control their destiny

The James Logan women's softball team is again in control of it own destiny this year. If all goes as planned, they will face a championship rematch with Amador Valley. Currently they hold a one-game lead over Newark and Washington in Mission Valley Athletic League play.
In a varsity game with the Irvington Vikings on April 18, the Lady Colts took control right from the start. A great day at bat with 15 hits to open a lead in the first inning with two runs and never looked back. In the second inning, an opportunity to slow the onslaught was missed by the Vikings when a dropped center field fly blew the game wide open. The result was six more runs that put the game out of reach.
Throughout the game, aggressive base running by the Lady Colts resulted in numerous scoring opportunities as runners were often in scoring position. The Colt victory was a team effort but big-hitting stars for the day were Cyntia Salangsang (2-2), Clarissa Blaquera (2-2) and Kimberly Goulart (3-4).
