Rayce Mathews and Colton Justice knew they were going to the state golf tournament. Both qualified as individuals.

They didn’t know if their Payson High team would finish as one of the 15 teams to qualify for the state tournament to be played Tuesday and Wednesday at Omni Tucson National Golf Club.

“We found out that the team held onto the 15th and final (team) spot,” said coach Randy Mathews.

Emme Sopeland, Katie Sexton and Zane Bartlett will join Mathews and Justice in the tournament for the Longhorns.
