It was already believed that Quitman High School would have a good softball season this spring. Judging by the way the Quitman Junior High team played this fall, the Lady Wolverines are going to be good for years to come. Really good!
This is evidenced by the Junior Girls going undefeated over their ten game fall schedule and really being challenged only once. That was in the final game of the year that took place Saturday against Claiborne Christian that ended in a 7-7 tie. Just a few hours before the Lady Wolverines lambasted Logansport by an 8-2 margin.
On Thursday, Maggie Guyotte combined with Brenna Lamkin and Hallie Kate Pullig to no-hit Montgomery Jr. High and Claiborne Christian in 6-0 and 6-1 victories. The pair of shared no-no’s were the fourth and fifth no-hotters that Guyotte had thrown in the very successful season that saw her give up only one earned run and seven hits, while striking out an incredible 47 batters in 21 innings stretching over 9 games. Brenna Lamkin also never gave up an earned run this season in five games where she struck out 16 in 7.2 innings pitched.
Leading the way offensively for the year was Hallie Kate Pullig who garnered 10 hits in 14 official at bats for a robust .714 batting average that included 2 doubles, 2 triples, six runs scored and 10 RBI. Guyotte was second on the team with a .625 average and led Quitman with 4 triples, 2 homeruns and 11 RBI. Zoee Williams hit .615 and led the team with 3 doubles, while also socking a round tripper and knocking in 7. Avery Watson scored nine runs and hit .571 with Kinsley Ponder scoring five and knocking in five after getting four hits in seven at bats.

Breanna Lamkin hit .364 with 6 RBI and 5 runs scored and Addison Fenn hit .357 with 6 RBI and 4 runs scored.Allie Robertson scored 8 runs and Emma Walker got three hits including a triple.
