    Located in central Arizona, just south east of Phoenix, lies the charming town of Chandler and more importantly, the home of Basha High School. Opened in 2002, Basha High School was named after Eddie Basha, Jr., a dedicated community member who called Chandler home until his death in 2013.

    Basha High was the third high school built by the Chandler Unified School District and currently has over 2,500 students enrolled. In addition to a high standard of academic accomplishment, the school is home to the Basha Bears, an athletics program that has consistently gained notoriety in the state of Arizona. Early on in the school’s history, their softball team was crowned state champions in 2008 and 2009, volleyball state champions in 2019 and boy’s basketball state champions in 2017. In addition to those accomplishments, their cheerleading team is a five-time winner of Arizona’s co-ed Cheer State Champions.

    When most of us think of the sounds that accompany professional soccer matches, we are likely to first imagine the spirited shouts and cheers of a stadium full of fans blowing their air horns and clapping their noisemakers. And who could forget the the usual chorus of the longtime favorite football anthem, Olé, Olé, Olé. But the World Cup comes but once every four years, and special musical arrangements are being made accordingly.

    In addition to the usual sounds of excitement that surround the pitch during a soccer game, the World Cup also gets its own world class soundtrack, including an official World Cup song.

    Are Athletes Unions The Future Of College Sports?

    Posted by Jeff Hurrle

    Apr 3, 2014 6:00:00 AM


    College football teams forming an employee union? Now I’ve seen everything. It sounds farfetched, but unionize they shall. After a shocking ruling by the National Labor Review Board (NLRB), football players at Northwestern University have been granted employee status, meaning they have every right to form a union. The life of a college athlete can’t be so bad that they need to seek union representation, so what gives?

    Their reasoning:

    First of all, Northwestern University football players, like many other student athletes, dedicate upwards of 40-50 hours per week to their sport, meaning these guys are already working overtime before you even start counting their credit hours.

    For generations, women have been striving for an equal playing field with men - first in the voting booths, then in the workplace, and now literally on the playing field. When it comes to competitive and professional sports, women often have their own corresponding leagues to match the men’s, but there is an ongoing question as to the equality between the separate leagues.

    The fact that women and men are physically different is not up for debate; in many cases, like with hockey, it would be unsafe for men and women to compete when physical contact is such a big part of the game.
