Last summer, potential Lady Longhorn softball players prepped for the 2000 campaign by participating in an Arizona State University-sponsored camp held in Flagstaff.
Coach Will Dunman has apparently decided this summer to shift allegiances from the Sun Devils to the Wildcats.
The coach, who just completed his first year at the helm of the softball program, is asking his charges to participate in a University of Arizona camp June 11-16 or June 18-23.
Dunman said he would personally escort the girls to the June 18-23 camp but couldn't attend the earlier session due to previous commitments.
The camps will be held on the campus of Emery Riddle college in Prescott.
The cost is $395 which includes all fees, room and board.
Call Dunman at 472-2266 for more information.
PHS boys basketball coach Randy Wilcox and the Town of Payson will host basketball camp June 19 to 23 in the old gym at PHS. Camp times are 1 to 3 p.m. daily. Boys entering grades seven, eight and nine are eligible to participate in the camp. The fee is $25 per player.
Wilcox urges all prospective players to sign up early. Registration began May 10 and continues until May 31. Sign-up is at the Payson Parks and Recreation Department located in Green Valley Park.
Call 474-5242, ext 7 for more information.
