Club Payson Volleyball 18s Black finished their season on a high note recently, placing third in the Arizona Region state tournament.
The team is coached by Shelli Creighton and McKenzie Oakley
It’s one of the best finishes a Payson team has turned in, according to Club Payson leaders.
“To my knowledge this is the first time a Club Payson team has placed third,” said Kamae Carnes, who coaches a Club Payson team for younger girls.
“It’s pretty exciting, especially for the five seniors that have played together for most of eight years.”
Team members include: Payson High seniors Kailey Carnes, Savanna White, Reagan Ashby, Lauren Hancock and Olivia Hobson (not pictured); juniors Sadie Hazelo, Emily Daniels and America Benitez; and sophomores Kylee Carnes and Alex Hagan.
