There will be plenty of returning champs and many more aiming to become champs Friday and Saturday at the 71st Annual Chandler Rotary Track and Field Meet at Chandler HS Austin Field.
Twelve defending champs covering 14 events return to the Rotary, according to meet director Dave Shapiro. A total of 107 schools will be represented.
Xavier coach Barb Chura is not bashful when it comes to talking about freshman forward Nikki Walts -- and for good reason.
Walts scored two goals in the final 13 minutes Wednesday to help the Gators skip past Desert Vista, 3-1, in a 5A-I girls soccer semifinal at Campo Verde High School.
