Quitman Jr. High continues hot start to season

You can’t ask for a better start. First both your teams win three straight in convincing fashion to win the season opening tournament then you follow that up by both winning the home opener – even more convincingly!

The orchestrator of the perfect start to the 2022 basketball season is the Quitman Junior High boys and girls basketball teams who ran their record to a perfect 4-0 by crushing Choudrant 37-4 in the girls game and 48-14 in the boys contest. Even more remarkable is that the two squads have trailed only once at the end of the combined 32 quarters that they have played and that was by one point. 

Not only is each squad winning impressively but they have already established an undeniable identity. The girls are winning through a suffocating defense that now has not allowed a team to score more than five points in a single quarter for an incredible 16 straight frames. The boys play good defense as well but it is an unstoppable offensive attack that ihas scored at least 38 points in every game and came within a basket of reaching 50 for the second time in four games that has grabbed the headlines.

Quitman 48 Choudrant 18:  The game was on ice early as Quitman raced to a 26-8 halftime lead. Brayden Martin scored 14 to lead a balanced attack that saw eight Wolverines tally. Taden Thomas chipped in with nine for the third time in four games followed by Shane Reed who added seven. Joining the “four with four” club was Jack Thomas, Kobie Williams, Hayden Seymore and Caden Jackson  with Mathew Odom rounding out the scoring with a basket.
