300: Rise of an Empire is both a prequel and a sequel to the 2007 film, 300, one of the most stylized action films ever made. The new movie has the same gritty and dark HD tonal quality of the first movie, as well as the sporadic ultra-slow-motion effects that capture the exaggerated battles and blood-spilling in extreme detail; but it’s missing some of the heart from often copied original.
The Queen Creek High School baseball team will look to the experience of its upperclassmen as it starts the 2014 season.
Most teams are in trouble when the captain and four-year starter at point guard goes down with a season-ending knee injury to begin the second game of the season. Not Gilbert Christian. The Knights plugged in a freshman, played defense, rediscovered their footing a few times along the way, and staged a couple bigtime comebacks in the state tournament to win the Div. IV state championship and second title in four years. Freshman Lauryn Satterwhite became the team’s point guard after Colleen Young suffered torn ligaments during the Queen Creek tournament to begin the season, and Meg van Rijn, Alyssa Elias and Cassidy Curtner rallied the girls. All five of the team’s losses came against teams in higher divisions, and the Knights used a 13-2 run to end the game and erase a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat St. David, 32-30, and win the championship.

BROOKLINE, Mass. — The spirited sport known as parkour that treats the world as one big obstacle course is gaining traction outside of the urban enthusiasts whose YouTube-worthy acrobatics spread its popularity.
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.
When kids know that we sincerely not only care for them but we sincerely care about things that are important to them motivation skyrockets! How can we show our sincere care about the things kids care about if we do not sincerely care about those things such as Dora the Explorer, Princesses, Spiderman, or fossils? Beginning with the end in mind just may be the key we need to unlock the door to this sincerity because our kids somehow know if and when we are sincere or not and insincerity does not motivate anyone. For example if we want our children to be motivated to behave well at a restaurant we may need to have a tea party with all their favorite characters the week before and model the desired behavior we want at the restaurant making the connection to how the characters behaved and how pleased we were with them. This seemingly silly or senseless time spend with our kids gives us a greater glimpse into their world and how they see the greater world we live in. This understanding and relationship building builds invites us into their world and gets us out of our world. When these two worlds unite the partnership is magical and children will be motivated to do many things that we may have thought were impossible for them. With this in mind if you have not done so already please take the time to Read the Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman . It is a life changing read that will help you keep your kids motivated. If you cannot commit to another book to read consider incorporating these five challenges into your kids life and get ready for greater parenting joy with a motivated child in tow…
An elite team from the season’s tipoff, Desert Vista’s girls completed a remarkable transformation in the past 15 months. A program saddled with unhappiness made a coaching change in the middle of the 2012-2013 season, and despite an upswing to end last season, J’ontar Coleman again interviewed and pleaded for one year to show what the Thunder could do. That worked well. A top team from start to finish this season behind the returning core of Kristine Anigwe, Jahnae Martin, Emily Wolph and Mountain View-transfer Sabrina Haines, the Thunder lost twice all season, and shook off a miserable start to the Div. I championship game against Westview to steamroll the Knights and the 53-35 victory gave the program its first state championship in school history.
The 1989 Corona del Sol team was honored Saturday on the 25-year anniversary of its state championship. The 2014 team likely will enjoy similar recognition in 25 years.
No East Valley school enjoyed more success in hoops than Chandler’s Division III school. A half-dozen seniors entered the boys program with much fanfare and expectations, but the Trojans kept knocking on the door without being let in. This time, however, Greg Haagsma’s team busted through. A year in which the local standard for the sweater vest is now the 11th basketball coach in Arizona to surpass 500 career wins (all at Valley Christian) was capped with the school’s first state title since 2007 thanks to Cory Kasperson’s career night of 24 points, along with Zach Wolf, TJ Widner and the younger Haagsma (Brandon). It helped smooth out what was a frustrating end to an otherwise brilliant, previously-undefeated season by Scott Timmer’s girls team. The Trojans won in blowout and close fashion, against better competition, with offense and defense to the tune of 33-0, but the formulas which worked for three consecutive months randomly disappeared on the girls against Fountain Hills in the championship game in the only loss this season.
Call Cory Kasperson clutch. Everyone at Valley Christian is now.
Impressively, last year’s championship matchup between these two schools was trumped by this year’s. Overtime. Controversy. Star players showing why they are stars. Unsung Heroes. This one had it all. Seeking payback from last year’s nailbiting loss, Pinnacle led by six points midway through the fourth quarter, but Casey Benson again brought the Aztecs back, and Pinnacle’s putback at the buzzer which would have won the game was waved off because of a Corona foul before the shot. After much deliberation and review, Pinnacle was awarded two free throws with .3 seconds left, and Ben Wahlberg hit 1 of 2 to force OT. Benson (16 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and overtime) and Dorian Pickens (41 points) were tremendous, and the Aztecs got some key plays late from Cassius Peat and Alex Barcello. Benson’s scoop shot with 30 seconds left in overtime gave Corona the lead and a final defensive stand in which Pinnacle missed its final three shots, which made Corona the third big-sized school in Arizona (Mountain View and Phoenix Union) to win three consecutive titles.
Winning doesn't get old, which is a good thing with Karen Self entrenched at Seton Catholic.

Long after Wells Fargo Arena emptied, a dozen teenagers wearing blue uniforms and reddened faces slowly meandered across the floor a final time this season. One held a video camera while the others talked, looked around at the backdrop in which their season came to an end, and embraced.
