Mountain View has a 13-2 record over Marana dating back to 1988 and this will be the first match between the two teams since 2014. 

Bob Honea, a former University of Arizona basketball player who graduated from Marana High School in 1947, created the “Boot.” When this new event kicked off, the schools had a boot bronzed and the winning school adds a metal tag denoting the school’s team. 

Tickets can be purchased at the gate. We hope to see you there!
