On March 8, the Payson Lions softball team opened their season at home playing Riverton High School. Riverton coming into the game was ranked number one in the state in 5A. With a mostly young and inexperienced team, Payson put up a great fight in this non region game. Bailey Kay led the way offensively hitting a two run home run in the bottom of the 3rd inning. Kassidy Biggs, Shanece Reynolds, and Hailey Burr all had hits as well. Hailey Burr was the starting pitcher for the Lions, pitching all six innings. The final score ended up Riverton 12 and Payson 2. Payson next heads to St. George this weekend to continue their non region schedule.
