Armed with a bevy of returning letter winners expected to lift the Lady Longhorn softball team to new heights this season, Payson High departs Thursday, March 1, to Buckeye for the Hawk Invitational. From last year’s team, Taylor Petersen, Kaitlyn Wessel, Natalie Black, Devann Runzo, Megan Wessel and Karessa Armstrong return to provide leadership, defense and hopefully a red-hot offensive attack. Petersen, a catcher, set the school’s home run record as a freshman and hones her skills in the off-season playing club ball in the Valley. Kaitlyn Wessel and her sister, Megan, are two of the finest all-around athletes at the school and their talents play a major part in buoying the softball cause. Kaitlyn plays first baseball and Meagan can hold down spots in either the outfield or infield.
