Iola High’s Blue and Gold scrimmages are Thursday

Iola High School will hold Blue and Gold scrimmages for volleyball and football Thursday evening.
The Fillies will take the volleyball court from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the IHS gym. The Mustang football team will scrimmage starting at 7 o’clock at the Riverside Park stadium.
Admission to the scrimmages is a bottle of sports drink or water. If you go to the volleyball scrimmage, you may get marked so you don’t have to “pay” to get into the football scrimmage un-less you want to donate more bottled drinks.
IHS athletic director Martin Bambick said as long as the weather permits, the football team will scrimmage on the football field.
“We don’t want to tear up our field before the first home game,” he said. We’ve battled with grass problems on the field this summer. The field is pretty soft out in the middle.”
Iola High will sell season passes for athletic events during the football scrimmage. Also the IHS Booster Club will be on hand to sell memberships and IHS wear and souvenirs.
