“Payton is a team captain who has a quiet, humble personality but is constantly working hard to be a great teammate,” Patriot coach Monica Sergent said. “She is a role model who leads by example on and off the court. Besides displaying a strong work ethic, Payton extends friendliness, kindness and commitment to those around her; teammates, fellow students, coaches, school staff and community members.”

Mudgett played No. 3 singles for the Patriots who won the Mid-State Conference and finished the season 18-7 overall.
