A Game-Changer in Logan Heights

Mighty Green Vaqueros

Friday nights at Memorial Field look a lot different today than they did just a few years ago. Back then, the rare spot of open space in Logan Heights was more brown than green, and any activity in the open space was likely gang-related. Today, hundreds gather on green grass under bright lights to cheer on the Mighty Green Vaqueros, the varsity soccer team of King-Chavez Community High School, a newer charter school. San Diego native and Saint Augustine alum Kyle Hagenburger started up the program in 2009 from nothing, and three years later the team made it all the way to CIF semifinals. As with so many sports, it’s the community that really wins big in this story, soon to be released as a documentary produced by Hagenburger and his wife, Carmen Caserta.
