TAMPA—Alonso’s Quatasia Fantroy, who won a state title this year in the triple jump with a school-record leap of 38 feet, 9.75 inches, signed a track scholarship this week with Jackson State University in Mississippi.

Fantroy is expected to compete in the triple jump and help out in the sprinting events as well.

“She is easily the most decorated female athlete to come out of Alonso,” Alonso track coach Roger Mills said. “She has the potential to do more great things at the next level.”

This year Fantroy also contributed to the Ravens’ basketball team, averaging more than 20 points a game.
