Arizona high school coaches and teachers support #RedForEd movement, their teams

Grand Canyon High School track and field athletes will travel more than four hours next  weekend for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Seven boys and seven girls will get on a bus with dreams of winning a medal at state in Mesa.
If the teachers’ walkout continues, the school is committed to getting the Phantoms there.
“With all this success, the athletes deserve the opportunity to compete,” Grand Canyon High track coach Elna Perkins said. “The administration at Grand Canyon High School has said they will support the team, including running buses to pick kids up for practice when there is not school and busing the team to the state meet
