Rewinding the Arizona HS sports year

Read Time:7 Minute, 0 Second


The 2021-22 school year is over and all that’s left are memories. Some good, some bad, some thrilling, some tragic, some magic.

And mostly triumphant. It goes fast.

Soon, it will be back to the grind of trying to win championships for high school sports teams. Or does that grind ever stop for coaches and kids? 

Let’s look back at these storylines that defined Arizona high school sports over the last nine months.

12/11/2021 Tempe, Arizona, Chandler versus Saguaro Open Divison AIA Champioship football, Thomas C dechesaro celebrates a Open Division Championship.

Scottsdale Saguaro’s rise to the top of the Arizona high school football world showed what a school with a 4A-size enrollment can do. The Sabercats rode the slogan, “Burn the Boats,” all the way to their first Open Division state championship, beating the two biggest heavyweights — Chandler Hamilton and Chandler— on the way to the gold ball.

Saguaro has become a magnet for talent and it doesn’t matter the size of the enrollment. The program has been attracting some of the best talent in the Valley and coach Jason Mohns knows how to mold them into winners. 

“We just took down the blue bloods of Arizona in back-to-back weeks, and I’m pretty damn proud,” Mohns said in Sun Devil Stadium after his Sabercats ended Chandler’s five-year championship reign with a 20-15 win that December night.
