GPHS Football Preseason
It is nearly August and every gridiron fan is asking, “Are you ready for some football!?” Well, here in good ole’ Galena Park, the answer is yes!
The Yellowjackets are ready and are poised for a breakout season as they plan on improving on last year’s season. The Yellowjackets will return starters on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball. Anchoring the defense will be senior linebacker Raphael Corrigeaux who will be aided by the young dynamic play of junior safety Jose Davila and sophomore defensive tackle Ray Ybarra. Leading the offense will be senior wide receiver David Solis, looking to energize the offensive arsenal will be junior wide receiver Bryan Gutierrez and anchoring the offensive line will be senior tackle Richard Conyer.
After a successful 7 on 7 campaign and solid participation in the summer strength and speed program, the Yellowjacket coaching staff and players will begin the 2015 season with high expectations and a plan for Galena Park success. The foundation will be laid for this success with the first practice scheduled for August 3rd at 7:00 am at Dement Field. It will be hot, it will be hard work, but the camaraderie and experiences cannot be rivaled. The first scrimmage will be August 14, 2015 versus Jasper at the Beaumont ISD stadium, 9th/JV will start at 6:00 pm and the varsity will start at 7:15 pm. The Yellowjackets will be on the field for a second scrimmage August 21, 2015 against Sam Rayburn at Dement Field. The 9th grade will start at 8:00 am, the JV will play at 9:00am and the varsity will kick off at 10:00 am. Then it will be time to dust off your foam fingers, cow bells, and pom-poms as the 2015 season begins against Houston Scarborough on the 28th of Augusta at GPISD Stadium.
GPHS Volleyball Preseason
The Galena Park Lady Yellowjackets are on a quest for play-offs and that quest begins August 3rd. The 2015 Volleyball Season will showcase the return of 7 varsity players, all with starting experience and significant time on the floor. Spurring the competition will be several juniors and sophomores from the sub-varsity teams looking for an opportunity to make an impact. In a tough 21-5A district the Lady Jackets are looking to change the perception of Galena Park volleyball. This transformation will be led by junior outside hitter, Alana Perez who earned 1st team all-district honors last season for her outstanding overall play. Alana will definitely be one of the many go to hitters for the now healthy junior setter, MacKenzie Swanson. Also returning with 2 full years of varsity experience and a competitive drive that never stops is senior, Taylor Dearing. Senior, Anne Bamba is another face to watch as the coaching staff expects big things from this powerful bundle of springy athleticism. Junior, Christina Herrera will also be starting her 3rd year as varsity middle and her power and speed will be exciting to watch. Complementing the aforementioned offensive juggernauts will be senior setters, Katera Johnson and Stephanie Sarmiento as they bring experience and solid play to the floor.
The 2015 season begins with try-outs for all three teams on Monday, August 3rd at 8:00 am. After a harried four days of practice the Lady Jackets will test their skills in the Sam Rayburn scrimmage on August 7th and again at the Pasadena scrimmage on August 8th. The season opener will be Tuesday, August 11th versus Sam Rayburn. The Texans will be looking for revenge as GP beat them in their brand new gym last year, but we will have none of that! The freshman will play at 4:30 pm with the JV and the varsity games following. Come and help us remind the Texans that a Yellowjacket sting can KILL!
