 WHAT:    Legacy Sports USA, Legacy Cares and USA Volleyball (Arizona Region) are partnering to host a memorial volleyball tournament at Legacy Park in honor of Alexa Cruz.  The tournament will feature close to 100 teams from across the country ages 10U – 18U. 


 WHY:     Alexa was killed in a car accident on Feb. 3, 2022, while driving to an upcoming volleyball tournament in Austin, Texas (Lone Star National Qualifier).  Severe weather cancelled flights so Alexa, her parents and two other families rented an SUV to make the drive to Austin.  The car hit black ice and lost control, crashing into a truck.  Alexa died at the scene, while her Venom Volleyball teammates Vanessa Ramirez and Gabby Romero were injured and taken to the hospital, along with Alexa’s mom.

A member of the Venom Red 18s, Alexa was a 17-year-old junior at Cesar Chavez High School.
