Will this trophy stay another year at Mountain Pointe High School?

Or will Desert Vista High claim the Ahwatukee Foothills News’ Tukee Bowl Trophy?

Those questions will be answered definitively tomorrow, Sept. 28, at Desert Vista Stadium, 16440 S. 32nd St., as the 21st annual Tukee Bowl begins at 7 p.m.

The Thunder and Pride are an even 10-10 in the crosstown rivalry, and both are 4-1 on the season.

Tempe Union High School District also has established special parking and student/drop off areas for the game.

For a look at the game, its importance to Ahwatukee and some of the players to watch, turn to p. 47.  You’ll find a complete preview of one of the community’s signature annual events.
