Janice Davis led Natchez to a 22 point win over Brandon High School. Davis won the 100,200,and 400 Meter Dashes in fine fashion.
Davis holds the state record in the 100 Meter Dash, and she is looking to set the 200 and 400 meter records this year.
If anyone believes in Davis, its Meridian head coach Barbara Brown.
The Quitman Panthers surrendered a 56-38 lead, after the field events, to fall to NE Jones 105-104.
