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.

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.
