Lady Longhorns are Coconino bound

The Lady Longhorn volleyball team will try to turn in its second impressive tournament performance of the early season when it travels tomorrow, Sept. 10, to Flagstaff to compete in the Coconino Invitational. The players make the visit fresh off a fourth-place finish in probably what was the most competitive field to ever enter the Payson Invitational Tournament. The field was also the largest ever — up to 21 teams from previous limit of 18 schools. The invitational was played Sept. 2 and 3 in three school district gymnasiums. Following the invitational, coach Arnold Stonebrink lauded his players’ efforts saying the entire roster stepped up to play well during a marathon-like two days in which the team competed first in pool play, then in cross-pool action and finally in the championship bracket.
