Winter Sports Campaigns Under Way


The Longhorn boys preseason basketball scrimmage slated for tonight against Blue Ridge was played yesterday in Pinetop-Lakeside (results not available at press time).

The date was shifted because the Yellow Jacket football team is involved in the Class 3A football playoffs. BR school officials wanted to allow all students to attend a state semifinal game at 8 p.m. Nov. 19 against Round Valley at Mesa Community College.

The Lady Longhorns scrimmage against Phoenix Christian will be played as scheduled at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 19 in Wilson Dome.
