Spring sports are beginning soon, and Garrett Junior High School is excited to announce the addition of volleyball to its spring sports program, along with soccer.
The addition of volleyball offers students an opportunity to be a part of our expanding athletics program and build their skills while learning the importance of teamwork.

The students are so excited to have the choice of soccer or volleyball as a spring sport, and this will give more students an opportunity to be involved and share their talents and skills with all of our Bobcat fans.
Coach Christa May shared her excitement as the coach of the inaugural team.

With her graduating, it’s time for me to take my mom hat off and put my coaching hat back on. It’s going to be amazing and exciting.”
Soccer season is also fast approaching and our athletes are gearing up for tryouts the last week of February.
Having two sports in the spring will be exciting. It will give our students who play and watch an opportunity to be a part of the Bobcat experience.
