Area Basketball Teams Staying Busy Over Summer

By  | 

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK) - Eight area basketball teams gathered in Panther Gym at Quitman High School today for the Quitman Shootout, a weekly summer league basketball tournament held by a different host school each week.

"All of our local coaches, we get together and play these games, and it's cost efficient for us," Quitman head coach Chris Coleman said. "We've competed in 24 games already this summer, so this will be our last week."

Meridian, Wayne County, Oak Grove, Heidelberg, South Jones, Forest, and Bay Springs were the participating schools today. The shootout will continue every Wednesday throughout June at a different location.
