HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - Saturday was a pleasant contrast to the COVID-ridden spring of 2020. A day full of baseball as several Pine Belt area clubs punched their respective tickets to the South State championships.

Here’s a look at all the scores from around the area:

  • Oak Grove (6) Pearl (4)
  • Sumrall (4) North Pike (3) – 10 innings
  • Stone (7) Purvis (2)
  • Taylorsville (13) Mize (8)
  • Stringer (5) Richton (2)

*West Jones swept its third-round series on Friday and will face Pascagoula in the Class 5A South State championship.

Softball season in the books

Oak Grove’s terrific softball season came to a sobering halt on Saturday in the Class 6A State Title.

Hernando held the Lady Warriors to just two hits in a 4-0 victory to take the championship series 2-1.

Oak Grove finishes the 2021 campaign with a 23-7 record, region 5-6A championship and first state title appearance since 2013.
