It can be said that Olive Branch has one of the toughest schedules in the state of Mississippi and possibly in the nation.

After Olive Branch (13-5) grinded out a win over Chicago Simeon Friday night, the ‘Quistors were battled tested again, this time against Bartlett (16-2), which took Olive Branch to the final buzzer, but senior forward D.J.
