The photogenic Quitman player (above) said it all when she put up two fingers. After That is the number of wins the Lady Wolverines now have in district 2B play after the 9-0 crushing of Choudrant to put them just one win away from a second straight undefeated district championship.

Mmmmm good! The M’s stand for Maddie Kaye Brymer, Maggie Guyotte, Madeline Vail, Madison Chaplin and Marley Bell who accounted for 6 hits, 8 runs and 9 RBI against Mamou and 7 hits, 5 runs, 3 RBI against Choudrant.
They aren’t alone in helping Quitman to a Jackson Parish leading,10th victory in 13 contests. Averie Williams and Karley Huckaby both hit doubles and scored against Choudrant with Skylar Hall adding two hits. Against Mamou, Cali Deal hit a pair of doubles and a triple to knock in two runs while 7th grader Anna Leach scored three runs and stole a base.
Deal was also impressive on the mound. The lanky lefthanded freshman won both games in impressive fashion. She pitched five shutout innings against Mamou and then followed with a complete game, goose egging of Choudrant, where she struck out a season best 17 batters, including the entire batting order before allowing her first hit.

Quitman 13 Mamou 3: Maggie Guyotte got the offensive onslaught going when she blasted a full count offering over the right field fence for her second “dinger” in as many days. The Lady Wolverines added another run in the top of the second when Skylar Hall hit a rope to right field and scampered all the way home after the fielder misplayed the ball.
Quitman opened it up in the third when Madeline Vail singled, stole second and scored on a Guyotte grounder between first and second. Cali Deal, who had tripled in the first inning but was stranded followed with another single to right. Anna Leach came in as a courtesy runner for Deal and promptly stole second before, along with Vail, trotted home in front of Maddie Kaye “Big Bopper” Brymer, who blasted a three run shot to left for her team leading third round tripper of the year.
The Lady Wolverines got a break in the top of the fourth and took advantage for three more runs. With two outs, Vail hit a grounder to third but reached on an error. Guyotte followed with a walk setting up a Deal double that scored Vail. Once again Leach subbed for Deal and followed Guyotte home when Brymer singled for two more RBI’s upping the lead to 9-0 after 3 ½ innings of play.
Meanwhile Deal was piling up K’s and 0’s on the mound. The K’s stood for the 8 strikeouts of Mamou batters and the 0’s stood for the number of runs allowed over the first five innings.
The “M Gang” went back to work in the top of the sixth. Madeline (Vail) got hit with a pitch to start the inning. Maggie (Guyotte) then coaxed a walk but not before Vail stole second, her 7th stolen base in two games. Deal then capped a perfect 4/4 day another double, her third extra base hit of the day to score Vail and move A. J. Gray, who ran for Guyotte, to third.
Maddie Kaye (Brymer) followed with a groundout that scored Gray, giving her a season best 6 RBI on the day. Leach, once again running for Deal, then scored her third run of the day when Madison (Chaplin) singled and then scored herself on a hit by Averie Williams.
