Freshmen, Sophomores Test Their Wings At Invitational Track Meet

Advertisement

Underclass members of the Payson High School track and field teams had the opportunity Saturday to show their wares against opposing athletes of similar age and experience.


At the Freshman/Sophomore Payson Rotary Invitational held Saturday in Longhorn Stadium, fledgling tracksters from 12 prep teams representing 2A, 3A and 4A schools went head-to-head against one another.


The meet is one of only a handful of freshman and sophomore competitions held in the state. Team scores were not kept but first-, second- and third-place finishers received medals from the meet sponsors, the Payson Rotary and Rim Country Rotary clubs, and the Mogollon Sporting Association.
