Payson High School cross country team members (left to right)
Carlan Pontious, Lance Chebot, David Cluff and Jonny Malloy train
for an upcoming meet. The PHS cross country team is one of the
squads that will probably benefit if the AIA allows the Longhorns
to return to the 3A conference. The 4A Grand Canyon region in which
PHS is now a member, is widely considered the toughest region in
the state regardless of school size.
