Westwood’s football team is in the middle of a resurgence. In 2011 and 2012 in Division I, the Warriors suffered back-to-back 1-9 seasons, but now things are different.

Producing over 500 yards of offense on most Friday nights usually gets the job done for Desert Ridge. Not on this night, however, and not against a Brophy team hungry for a little payback after a bitter state playoff defeat last year at the hands of the Jaguars.

Who is afraid of the big, bad wolf? Certainly not East Valley Tribune readers, who voted Chandler High School’s wolf as the best school mascot for the second consecutive year.
Having Wolves as a mascot is hardly unique. According to the website highschoolnicknames.homestead.com, Wolves are the 29th-most common selection among high schools nationally. Even two other high schools in Arizona — Desert Mountain High School in Scottsdale and Estrella Foothills High School in Goodyear — share the nickname of Canis lupus.
But Chandler High School can claim something its state brethren lack: longevity. Established in 1914, Chandler High has existed in some form for an entire century.
Chandler High’s student body has done its part to uphold the proud Wolves name. According to the school’s website, Chandler High has produced 50 National Merit Scholarship semifinalists in the past six years and the school recently received an “A” grade from the Arizona Department of Education.
In sports, the Wolves football team, led by Bryce Perkins and Chase Lucas, is one of the best Division I squads in Arizona and is expected to contend for a state championship this season.
So perhaps the only people who should fear the big, bad wolf — affectionately named “Scruffy” at Chandler High — is anyone who doubts the students, faculty, staff and alumni of the Chandler High School Wolves.

The annual Northwest Christian-Tempe Prep contest is perhaps the most physically intense rivalry in Division V football, and probably still carries more emotion from the Knights perspective — as that program worked its way up to the level of the two-time state champs.
Two hours before kickoff on Friday, the homecoming festivities were in full swing. Pop up games, music, and refreshments lined the Mountain Pointe parking lot. Students, dressed in the theme of the night, USA, milled around waiting for the gates to open.

Streets across Ahwatukee experienced massive flooding Monday morning, while some schools in the area closed for the day or saw delays due to adverse weather.
Expectations for an Arizona team have never been higher than they are for the Desert Vista girls squad. The Thunder ended Xavier’s six-year run of state championships last year and lose just one runner who ran at the state championships. Barring an epic string of bad luck, the Thunder should win their second straight state championship, with Xavier and Highland battling it out for second. But Desert Vista has its sights set on becoming the first Arizona team to earn a trip to the Nike Cross Nationals in Portland in December.
In Division I, the boys team race is wide open, which favors the traditional power teams that have a large number of athletes in the program. That means look for Desert Vista, Highland, Mountain View and Corona del Sol to occupy spots in the top 5 this year. Individually, Corona del Sol’s Marcus Wheeler is the top returner. It’ll be interesting to see how Wheeler adjusts to running solo after a year of running with (or just behind) teammates Nathan Rodriguez and Ryan Normand. The trio finished 1, 2, 3 at the state meet a year ago, and Wheeler gained a lot from training and competing with his older teammates. Can he match that this year as he takes over the helm of the favorite? That’s the biggest question going into the season.
Last year, Corona del Sol dominated at the Division I boys cross country state championships, claiming the top three spots and having all five runners finishing in the top 25. However, this year the Aztecs lost several key pieces as they look to defend their state title. The East Valley Tribune spoke with coach Pat Smith about replacing key pieces, their returning stars and their hopes at a repeat state title.
