Ravens' Quatasia Fantroy signs with Jackson State

Alonso senior Quatasia Fantroy, who overcame gusts, gray skies and a steady drizzle to win the Class 4A girls state triple jump title earlier this month, has signed with Jackson (Miss.) State University.

According to Ravens coach Roger Mills, she is the first Alonso female to sign a track scholarship.

Winner of three state medals in her career, Fantroy notched a personal-best triple jump (38 feet, 9.75 inches) in wretched conditions at the University of North Florida to win the 4A title on May 4. As a junior, she medaled in the triple and long jumps.

Jackson State, a historically black university, competes in the Division I Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC).
