The Lady Warriors of Hoopa High School’s volleyball team are getting ready for the first game of the season, against Hayfork, scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Vicki Kurtz coached volleyball for over 12 years, and came out of retirement to coach the varsity team. Earline Mattz is coaching the junior varsity team.

Five senior players are returning this season: Lillian Jarnaghan, Maggie Joe Jarnaghan, Ruby Bibancos, Priscilla Masten, and Lona Nelson.

“We’re just getting started,” Kurtz said, “but they’re really jazzed about their season and looking forward to putting on a good show.”
