The Red Rock Invitational offered Payson High track team members the opportunity to test their skills against many of the very same opponents they will meet in the Division III state tournament when it is held May 11 and 12 at Mesa College. Which means the local athletes returned to PHS from the March 31 meet knowing exactly what they must do in order to earn a state medal. Jaymi Carlen is among those who showed at Red Rock she could contend for state honors in several events. In the triple jump, Carlen went 31 feet, 11 inches to finish second behind Sedona’s Nyomi Mosley who jumped 33 feet. Carlen was also third in the long jump with a leap of 14 feet, 6 inches. The event winner, Nyomi Mosley of Sedona soared 15 feet, 7 1/2 inches.
