Host families needed for GJ Rockies
Season tickets are $299 for all 38 home games, with the season beginning in mid-June and running through early September.
The main requirement to host a player is to provide safe living conditions and transportation to and from home games. A host family may provide meals but that is not a requirement. Players will be 18 to 22 years old.
Fruita, Central, Junction all place one player on All-SWL first team
Fruita Monument senior libero Michelle Midgely, Grand Junction senior outside hitter Kricket Adelman and Central outside hitter Kimber Baker were selected to the Southwestern League all-conference first team.

Lovett is the SWL’s player of the year. Her coach, Robin Oliger, is the league’s coach of the year.
Fruita Monument senior middle hitter Teddi Larsen and sophomore outside hitter Joelle LeFevre made the second team. Natalie Bulen, Kennedy Clark and McKenna Franzen of Durango and Abby Engel of Montezuma-Cortez made the second team.
