Arizona has enjoyed a slow, steady rise to track prominence nationwide. Much of that rise was aided by the Chandler girls program, which won two Nike Team National titles, and individuals like Billy Orman, Devon Allen and Bernie Montoya.
At this point in the season - the end of the postseason - it's both inevitable and undesirable the bigger-sized schools will meet each other for at least a second and often a third time.

Like a treasure hunter, Heather Ross, director of Knights at the Theatre (Arizona College Prep’s drama company), was on the hunt for a stand-out script, one that would surpass the usual high school plays — you know, “Grease,” “West Side Story,” “Footloose,” “Annie,” and the list goes on.

To compensate for a lack of change at the top of the boys basketball landscape as the 2012-2013 season begins, the girls basketball world might pick up the slack.
The chill of winter means basketball is already underway with a plethora of early-season games and tournaments, and yet the question remains:
2013 Chandler All-District Volleyball
Coming back re-loaded from its first state championship appearance in 2012 (a loss to Hamilton), the Mountain Pointe football season began at the Barry Sollenberger Classic in Las Vegas, a place where whatever happens there is supposed to stay there. Only it didn’t. What Mountain Pointe did to Nevada-powerhouse Bishop Gorman in the opening-week victory was televised nationally and became the appetizer and the impetus to finishing No. 6 in the final MaxPreps national poll. The Pride went 14-0 in convincing fashion with the closest margin of victory being 10 points as they fulfilled senior lineman Natrell Curtis’ preseason promise to earn a ring. The offense was multifaceted, the defense was as physical and fast as any this state has seen according to several opposing coaches, and the coaching staff made all the right decisions to give the Mountain Pointe its first state football title, which vaulted the Pride to No. 6 nationally, according to MaxPreps.com.
Here are the results and finals schedules for the Division I through Division V football playoffs:
As much as No. 4-seeded Desert Ridge is trying the “lie in the weeds” approach during these football playoffs – after all, everyone’s talking about No. 1 Mountain Pointe, No. 2 Chandler and No. 3 Hamilton – it might not last.

With football taking such a predominant portion of the stage, it’s worth noting the girls volleyball state tournament got underway on Tuesday night — not to mention cross country and swimming/diving state championships are coming up this weekend — and just because there’s been an unfortunate lack of ink, doesn’t mean the tournaments are going to lack talent, excitement or drama.
Well, that was interesting.
Adults rule the world, as they should. That, of course, means they have to act like adults, which means taking control and sometimes seeing a view of life and the world beyond the here-and-now. So when there’s a coaching change at a school, or your kid isn’t getting enough playing time, or friends from club and other places all open enrolled at the same school so they could play sports together, take the alternate route for a change. If your son/daughter is fortunate and works hard enough to have the chance at playing collegiately, open enrolling and transferring to the powerhouse program is easy and may be successful, but the neighborhood school has its own merits as well, some of which are lessons your child might need or learn to appreciate in 10 or 20 years. High school is about friendships, camaraderie, socialization skills and rapid change. It’s OK to push kids and say “no” sometimes. Not everyone wins all the time no matter how good you are. It’s OK to meet new people. College recruiters will find you whether it’s Skyline, Hamilton, Westwood, Tempe Prep, San Tan Foothills, Perry or Desert Vista. Moving around in pursuit of scholarships is sillier than ever these days. Don’t let wins, stats and buddies shield chances for real growth. We all learn the ropes one way or another, one time or another, and usually the hard way.
