Quitman girls place fourth at Castor Invitational

Quitman scored 84 points in the girls division at the Castor Invitational run on April, 3rd. Normally that would be a good score heading into district competition that will take place next Wednesday. The problem is that district 2B competitors Simsboro and Choudrant scored 107 and 91 points respectively to finish first and second in the meet while the Lady Wolverines ended up fourth. Host Castor came in third with 86 points. Hope for a top district finish is still abound though as seven season best times, distances and heights were registered in the meet.
