Basketball teams see plenty of home court advantage; wrestlers at home only once

Competing in the division-section configuration is old hat for the Longhorn wrestling team, but for the boys and girls basketball squads, it will be a first time experience. When the Arizona Interscholastic Association mandated the change, the switch last school year was only for all individual sports, such as wrestling. For team sports, such as basketball, the switch takes place this year, which means the basketball teams will no longer play in the 3A East, but rather in Division III, Section III. Just what the change will mean to Payson High School teams won’t be known until season’s end.
