Gila Ridge to host YUHSD preseason volleyball scrimmage

Gila Ridge High School will host the 2019 Yuma Union High School District volleyball scrimmage on Thursday, Aug. 29, 2019 at 5 p.m.

“I am so excited to start the volleyball season off with a district-wide scrimmage to allow for athletes to get to know people and players within their district, but also build them up through athletic competition,” said Yuma High School volleyball coach Jessica Gastelum, who is entering her first year with the school’s volleyball program.

All five YUHSD schools are expected to participate in the scrimmage, including Kofa High School which earned a spot in the 6A Conference Play-In tournament in 2018 following an 18-6 regular season record.

Gastelum and Cibola head coach Laura Marino are entering their first year with their respective programs, while Ricardo Villegas (San Luis), Makyla Orman (KHS) and Tricia Ellsworth (GRHS) are returning from a season ago.
