Longhorns Take Two In Lakeside


Both Payson High School varsity basketball teams returned to the Rim country late Tuesday evening clutching victories over the Blue Ridge Yellow Jackets.

In Lakeside, the Lady Longhorns shrugged off a tenacious Jacket full court press to win 55-49.

"Our press breaking ability is really improving," coach Stacy Anderson said.

The Longhorn boys overcame foul trouble in a penalty-marred game to win 65-54.

"There were so many fouls called the game was almost boring," coach Kenny Hayes said. With the triumph, the Horns assured themselves of winning the East region regular season championship.
