YUMA, Ariz. – Both the Gila Ridge Hawks and Cibola Lady Raiders volleyball programs are each looking for a spark. Both schools are trying to fight off their respective losing streaks; Hawks at three games and Lady Raiders at two.

Tuesday night, both would cross paths for the first time on Yuma’s west side; and Gila Ridge would be the team ready to play.

After taking the first two sets thanks in part to Alexis Webb’s 21 assists, the Lady Raiders would put up a fight in the third set. Kylee Lakey would come to life, garnering 5 kills and helping the Lady Raiders even the set at 20 points apiece.

But, the Hawks would put it away with a soft touch kill shot by Jenna Saunders that would give Gila Ridge the match point.

Hawks have the bragging rights so far. They take the match by the three-set score of 25-12, 25-14 and 25-21.

YUMA, Ariz. – Since Brittany Garcia took the helm as the head volleyball coach at Kofa, the Lady Kings have met great success; making the playoffs every season she’s been on the sideline.

Part of the formula for Garcia’s success has been the hot starts. This year has been a bit different. Through the first six matches, Kofa has only been able to win three of them. Taking on Casa Grande, they were in danger of getting off to their roughest start since before Garcia took over the program.

The Lady Kings would go down in defeat, in a tough three set loss; 25-15, 25-21 & 25-19.

YUMA, Ariz. – Both San Luis and Yuma are up and coming area prep volleyball programs that both aspire to eventually challenge for the section crown. On Wednesday night, they both had the challenge of measuring up against one another.

Net enforcer Izzy Lucio and the Lady Criminals would get off to a solid start, taking the first set by a nine point advantage. But, then the Sidewinders under new head coach Ricardo Villegas would rally; taking the next three sets and the match.

San Luis wins it in four; 16-25, 25-22, 25-22 & 25-22.

YUMA, Ariz. – A new coach with a mostly new cast of characters. The Arizona Western College volleyball team is still looking to find it’s groove in the Arizona Community College Athletics Conference after a three-set loss to Yavapai at home.

The Lady Mats couldn’t overcome an 8-1 deficit in the first set, while they came out on the wrong end of a back-and-forth points battle in the second. The third set was just as competitive, but small mistakes put AWC in bind they couldn’t escape.

The Lady Mats Deja Lester finished with 8 kills, while teammate Keana Smalls led the squad with 17 digs on the night.

AWC falls to 1-4 in ACCAC play and will look to rebound on the road this weekend at the Scottsdale Community College Classic Tournament.

YUMA, Ariz. – Both the Imperial and Gila Ridge volleyball programs had dream seasons in 2014. While the Lady Tigers made a deep run in the CIF-SD section playoffs, the Lady Hawks made the AIA playoffs for the first time in program history.

Even though Imperial returns most of their players from last year, the same can’t be said for Gila Ridge. The Hawks lose all but one of their starters to graduation and they lose the services of head coach Lorayne Chandler; who was hired as AWC’s head volleyball coach in the offseason.

The new look Lady Hawks would take on Imperial under the guidance of new coach Tricia Ellsworth.

The start of the match looked promising for Gila Ridge, as they were able to edge their Imperial Valley counterparts by six points in the first set. But, from there the Lady Tigers would seize control as they would take the next three sets.

Camryn Seaman had a team high 9 kills and 4 digs for Imperial, while teammate Analia Sotelo put down three aces and 15 assists.

The Lady Tigers would take the four set win; 19-25, 25-15, 26-24 and 25-16.

STEM grants for local schools http://www.yourtvfamily.com/stem-grants-for-local-schools/ http://www.yourtvfamily.com/stem-grants-for-local-schools/#comments Tue, 01 Sep 2015 00:03:23 +0000 http://kyma.com/?p=8476 YUMA, Ariz. – Arizona Public Service (APS) and the Phoenix Suns are teaming up to help schools K-12 state-wide and Yuma County is no exception. $50,000 in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) grant money will be awarded to schools throughout the Grand Canyon State.

“We’ve seen students go out and do ecology projects, we’ve seen elementary students do roller coaster projects to learn about physics. So, it’s a great opportunity for teachers to get that money into their individual classrooms for projects,” said Anna Chaulk, Community Affairs Manager for APS.

Grants awarded can amount to as much as $2,500 according to APS officials. School officials say grants like these always come in handy.

“These grants always come in to support us and to allow us to deepen our educational opportunities for our kids in our community,” said Duane Sheppard, Associate Superintendent Yuma Elementary School District 1.

APS officials say this is a way for them to invest in the community and the future of thousands of kids throughout the state.

“We are growing our future workforce and when those kids come out of school on the other side of that we have a stronger workforce to choose from,” said Chaulk.

Schools interested in a chance at a STEM grant have until October 7th to submit their application.
