It still hurts. Losing in the fashion the Tempe High boy’s basketball team did in the Division II semifinals last week will never be forgotten.

PRESCOTT VALLEY - Divisions III and IV wrestling state championships are taking place in Prescott Valley this weekend as the sport grapples with the aftermath of a skin infection outbreak that sidelined more than fifteen wrestlers in the past few weeks.
The decision to handle the smaller division wrestling postseason differently than the bigger division when it resumes this weekend came down to the strain on travel.
EV wrestlers must be ready for state even as everyone waits for contingency plans following sectional meet postponements
There's never a shortage of head-scratching and even jaw-dropping when it comes to logistics around Arizona high school sports these days, most recently in soccer.
The chill of winter means basketball is already underway with a plethora of early-season games and tournaments, and yet the question remains:
This gets tricky, because paying for security, staffing and especially facilities (especially the big football, basketball and baseball venues) are expensive and not necessarily set up by the AIA. And, of course, costs for everything escalate but people’s income doesn’t (or worse). Still, where can a middle ground be found, because it’s admirable the AIA wants to give kids a once-in-a-lifetime experience playing at University of Phoenix Stadium, Arizona State, University of Arizona, Jobing.com Arena or the spring training stadiums, but its pricing families out of the buildings. Even the Division I and II championship games don’t fill one-third of college and pro venues. It’d be a bitter pill to swallow in places, but perhaps more intimate stadium/arena settings would not only boost the atmosphere, but cost a few dollars less for both Arizona’s high school governing body and the people (directly and indirectly) it serves.
