Name: Payton Sorenson
School: Mesa Mountain View
Got Game: After last year’s stunning performance, it’s safe to assume Sorenson has the 50-year state record in his sights. His winning time of 20.44 seconds at the Division I state meet was an auto-All-American qualifier and put him just 0.22 seconds from the D-I record of 20.22 seconds (the All-Arizona record is a little further away, at 19.84 seconds). Sorenson’s pursuit of the record should help his team improve on last year’s third-place result.
