The schedule of games in the 2023 fall season for local Junior High schools are beginning to wind down, especially in basketball where by the end of the week both Quitman and Weston will see their season come to a close.
Highlighting the remaining basketball games will be the final edition of the 2023 Parish Rivalry between Quitman and Weston Junior High Schools. That contest will be played on September 26th at Quitman, with Weston opening the weeks play by hosting Cedar Creek on Monday, Sept. 25th. Quitman will close out their season on Thursday, September 28th when they host Simsboro, while Weston will finish up by hosting Claiborne Christian on Thursday and traveling to Dodson for the season final on Friday, Sept. 29th
There are still several games left on the football season schedule at Jonesboro-Hodge Middle School but even that has reached the half-way point with only three or possibly four games left to be played. JHMS is slated to host Cedar Creek on Tuesday, Sept. 26th followed by another home game against D’Arbonne Woods on Oct. 3rd. A third straight home game will be played on Oct. 10 when Lincoln Prep comes to town setting up a possible rematch at L-Prep at a date and time to be determined.
