Congratulations to the Thunder Speech Theater and Debate Company, who competed at the 5A AIA state tournament. The tournament hosted 15 of the largest schools in Arizona to compete for the spot as the No. 1 school in the state. Desert Vista won first place sweepstakes with a 92 point lead, winning state for the eighth year in a row. Instead of a single representative, they sent seniors who represent various groups and events on the team. Their service is an inspiration for years to come and they truly have become the next generation of giants.
