Jackets eliminated from state playoffs
BROCK – After fighting in the second half of district to claim its first playoff berth in three years, the Meridian Yellowjackets battled their way into the District 12-1A, Division I’s second place spot with a hard-fought tiebreaker victory over San Saba. But after grabbing the playoff berth and securing a winning record, the Jackets just did not have enough left in the tank to keep it going, falling 54- 46 to Chico in a bi-district playoff game last Friday
night in Brock. Freshman Jarett Carpenter led Meridian in scoring with 14 points, followed by senior Chase Bowman with 10.
