Baseball: Battle of Blacow
Submitted By Mike Heightchew
When it comes to rivalries, the Battle of Blacow has to rank near or at the top. The John F. Kennedy Titans (Fremont) and Irvington Vikings (Fremont) are separated by a mere few blocks along Blacow Road butÊcompetitive juices flow freely when these teams meet on the field of play. These games are notable no matter what the standings indicate as school pride is at stake. The competitive spirit was evident on May 9th as both teams played as if a championship was on the line. Although the Vikings kept it close for the first two innings with great defensive plays at home plate, Titan power at the plate prevailed when it produced three runs in the third inning and an insurance run in the sixth. Vikings persistence almost paid off when they loaded the bases in the fifth inning but came away empty handed. Final score: Titans 4, Vikings 0.
