After a tough season in 2013, the Lady Yellowjackets look to improve this year as they prepare for exciting things to come.
Coolidge has four starters coming back this year, including Dianna Kirven who missed most of last volleyball season with an injury.
“She’s a big part of our team,” said Bobby Smith, Head Coach.
Coolidge had several players make the 14-1A All-District team last season in volleyball, which includes returning players Adrianna Jones (first team), Kirven (honorable mention) and Alejandra Acevedo (honorable mention).
Those players, along with starter Maria Ortiz, will step up to fill the void left by the seniors that graduated this past spring.
