Previewing Saturday’s baseball play
Enterprise vs. Wesson, 11 a.m.
Wesson will travel to Enterprise Saturday morning for an in-county rivalry non-district matchup.
Enterprise learned their fate on Friday night regarding the number one or two seed in the district — they’d be the one seed with a Loyd Star loss to West Lincoln, and they’d be the two seed if Loyd Star is able to sweep West Lincoln.
Enterprise will enter the contest with a 14-5 record, and winners of three of their last four contests.
Wesson comes into the contest struggling a little, as they have a 3-16 record on the season. Wesson, however, has clinched the four seed in their district, and will make the playoffs in 3A.
Wesson plays their last district game of the season on Monday when they take on Jefferson Davis County.
South Pike at West Lincoln, 1 p.m.
West Lincoln will finish off the regular season with two consecutive games against South Pike High School, the first of which will come Saturday afternoon at West Lincoln.
The Bears have struggled as of late, losing their last five district games, but they’ll have two opportunities against South Pike to get prepared for the playoffs, as they’re locked in the four seed in the 2A playoffs.
South Pike will enter today’s contest after an emotional doubleheader against McComb on Friday night. To reach the playoffs, South Pike will have had to sweep the double-header on the road, likely digging deep into their pitching depth.
Loyd Star vs. Terry, 1 p.m.
The district championship was on the line for Loyd Star on Friday night when West Lincoln came to town for the last regular season games of the year.
With a sweep of the Bears, Loyd Star would win the district championship again and garner the number one seed from the district.
Terry is a step up in classification, as they’re a 5A opponent. The Bulldogs are struggling on the year, coming into Friday with a 9-16 record, but they’ve won four out of their last six games.
Columbia Academy at
Brookhaven Academy, 2 p.m.
Brookhaven Academy has put themselves in prime position to make a playoff run over the next few weeks, but they’ll play their last non-district game of the season this afternoon as Columbia Academy comes to town.
Columbia is 12-13 on the season, and have lost three of their last four contests.
