The Lady Lions’ soccer team ended a great season this month with the opportunity to go to the first-round of state in St. George to play Dixie High School.  The girls played very well and their hard work throughout the season got them there.

During the game Payson and Dixie stayed neck and neck the first half of the game at 0-0 then, in the second half, Dixie pulled away and won 4-0.

“When the chips are down, we rise to the challenge,” said Coach Rockwood.

This one simple statement effectively sums up Payson High’s own Cross Country team. Victorious in regions, the team came back with the first place cup. Nick Hindes, Jordan Bailey, and Dakota Lange made it into the top 10 runners. Coming in close at 11th was Dallin Lowe. Ariane Keele represented the girls well, with 5th place. The regions meet was held October 9th at Spanish Fork.

“It's not how you win, but how you  conquer it.” said Allysse Thomas.

            PHS volleyball most certainly has conquered! Even though the regular season for Volleyball ended on October 16, that's not stopping the PHS Varsity Volleyball team from going to state on October 26.

            “It's exciting - they've done a great job, and they really deserve it!” said their coach, Mr. Neilson.
