An athletic milestone takes place at the end of August when Metro Tech competes in its first Arizona Interscholastic Athletics (AIA) events. Girls Volleyball opens play at Scottsdale Saguaro on August 30, the Boys Golf team plays on the same day, and Boys and Girls Cross Country will run August 31. Girls Golf starts September 7. For many years, Metro Tech did not have athletic teams, and recently, they were part of the Canyon Athletic Association, competing mostly against charter schools. This is the Knights’ first year in AIA, competing in these fall sports, basketball and soccer in the winter, and baseball, softball and tennis in the spring.
