Toughest Competition of the Year



A fierce competition occurred after school as students and staff played in one of Payson Junior’s toughest, most popular events: a badminton tournament.

On September 20, 2013, 70 students competed in Payson Junior High’s first badminton tournament of the year.  Eric Archer, teacher at Payson who organized the event, explained, “There were a lot of close games and it was a 'smashing' good time.”  

Tanner Killpack & Luis Garcia took 1st Place, Jose Sandoval & Jr. Castrellon placed 2nd, and 3rd Place went to Bryce Mecham & Josh Steele.

Congratulations to all the winners.  There are several tournaments throughout the year so keep playing and getting ready for the next one!
