Sports360AZ All-Academic Cross Country Team (Divisions III & IV)

Arizona Sports News online

For eight years, Sport360AZ has been committed to acknowledging the best and brightest student athletes in Arizona. We are excited to introduce the Sports360AZ All-Academic Cross Country Teams brought to you by Venezia’s Pizzeria, IBEW 640 and Arrow Awards to recognize excellence of student-athletes not only on the field but in the classroom as well.

We were overwhelmed by the response from players, coaches, athletic directors and parents and their nominations. The Sports360AZ All-Academic Cross Country Teams helped contribute to our biggest response for fall sports in the award’s history.

Venezia’s NY Style Pizzeria has offered pizza & other great foods on their menu for over 20 years. We now have 5 locations that are located in Tempe, Gilbert, Mesa and North Phoenix. We offer great slice specials that allow you to mix and match with slices, salads and wings that include a drink for under $10! If you are looking to feed a large group you can order one of our famous Party Pizzas which feed 7-10 people. We also offer sandwiches, pasta, salads, desserts and many options for appetizers. Venezia’s has dine-in, takeout and delivery and we also cater to many companies in the East Valley due to our vast options on our catering menu. Order online at or download our App and start enjoying these great options soon!


IBEW Local 640 was chartered in 1925 to provide the best-qualified Electricians to our signatory Contractors and to provide livable wages, health and retirement benefits for our members. In Arizona, the IBEW is the only organization that certifies the skills and knowledge of a Journeyman Wireman, and then backs that certification with a guarantee to the employers who hire them. Our Contractors and Members have done extensive work at Arizona’s largest schools and universities, including large solar installations, and have been involved in most of the major sports stadiums/arenas in the Phoenix Metro area. As new green technologies are incorporated into the nation’s power grid, Local 640 leads the way in our ability to train and provide qualified manpower for solar and wind installations in the quantities that will be required to complete these projects. 

Arrow Awards is a family owned and operated business that has been a part of the Valley since 1986. Arrow Awards has decades of experience in the awards business and operate with the latest state of the art engraving equipment including laser engraving. Arrow Awards is proud to have pioneered the concept of free engraving (up to 150 characters per item purchased) influencing other trophy shops to adopt the concept in order to remain competitive in the industry. Their production is done entirely in house and rush orders can be accommodated.

Thank you so much for your nominations, and be sure to use #Sports360AZScholars when sharing these teams on social media.

Without further ado, we are thrilled to present the Sports360AZ All-Academic Cross Country Team (Divisions III & IV):
