About the Thunder

We are DVCC. We are the Thunder. We are the Desert Vista Thunder Boys Cross Country program of Desert Vista High School in Phoenix, Arizona.


Desert Vista High School was established in 1996. It is located in the Ahwatukee Foothills area of Phoenix and is a part of the Tempe Union High School District. It is a member of the Arizona Interscholastic Association (AIA) and has always competed at the highest level of the AIA classification system for Arizona High School sports.

The Desert Vista Thunder Boys Cross Country program has been providing quality long distance training since 1996.

It is our mission each year to produce individuals who not only compete well on the athletic field, but also establish themselves as stellar students and human beings.

The athletic and academic achievements of these athletes are numerous; it is a direct result of their dedication and discipline to the sport and their studies.

The coaches, staff, parents, and families of the Desert Vista Cross Country community could not be more proud of our Thunder Runners!
