Coach’s comments: “Our team is young and rebuilding. Last year, the team had only five players in total. This year we have more than doubled that and are in the process of building a positive and dynamic culture that truly represents who we are at Cholla High School. We are excited for our future and understand it is a process, and we embrace the struggle to greatness. We also recognize that it is not the wins and losses column that dictate our ultimate success in life, but rather how we are able to positively contribute to society beyond graduation.”
