As Logan teacher Shane Henderson starts his second year as head coach of the James Logan boys water polo team, he believes the team has a chance to go to th NCS tournament and win the MVAL title.
The team took a step toward that goal Friday night with a thrilling 5-4 defeat of Concord in double overtime. Andres Galvez scored his second goal of the night on a 6 on 5 man up situation with a minute and a half remaining in the second overtime to put us ahead. Also scoring two goals was Michael Ruddick and adding one goal was Morgan Stickney.
