For the first time since 2001, the Meridian Yellowjackets have opened the season with four consecutive victories. But none have been more important than the last one. Opening District 10-2A, Division II competition at Jacket Stadium last Friday night, Meridian made a statement with an impressive 40-8 victory over Wortham to remain undefeated. Senior running back Dion Estrada rushed for 143 yards and three touchdowns while senior running back Jaime Reynoso ran for two more as the Jackets (1-0 in district, 4-0 overall) methodically dismantled Wortham (0-1, 2-3).
