The Petal Panthers and Oak Grove Warriors make up 20 percent of the teams left in the 6A South. While the Warriors are starting their playoff journey this week, the Panthers had to earn the trip to the second round by sweeping D’Iberville in two high scoring games.
Oak Grove Warriors
On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, we focus solely on this weekend’s first round of the high school baseball playoffs.
We discuss Petal-D’Iberville (8:40), Pass High-Sumrall (15:15), Purvis-St. Stanislaus (19:05), Mt. Olive-Lumberton (22:55) and Sacred Heart-Sebastopol (25:10) throughout the episode.
Oak Grove native Hayes Maples is participating in something he’s never done before. Yes, he’s been playing football for a while now, but he’s never gone through spring practice at Southern Miss nor at Oak Grove.
On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, Camal and Andrew open with quirky traditions at The Masters (2:40) before jumping into more local discussions.
HATTIESBURG – The Oak Grove Warriors put themselves in the driver’s seat Tuesday night.
On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, Camal and Andrew discuss the Petal-Oak Grove game Tuesday, each of our area team’s playoff picture and some Southern Miss baseball as it prepares for a weekend series against Marshall.
PETAL – Oak Grove took care of business against rival Petal 10-5 on Tuesday. The Warriors’ win keeps them one district game behind George Country for the first-place spot in Region 5-6A and sets the two teams up for a collision course next Tuesday.
HATTIESBURG – It didn’t take long for the Oak Grove Lady Warriors to erase the painful memory of last week’s walk-off loss to Petal.

On this week’s episode of The PineBeltSPORTS Podcast, we take a deep dive into Sumrall’s win over Purvis and PCS’ conference-opening win over MRA.
After discussing other prep teams last week, we made sure to include Purvis and PCS this week. After that, we close with a Southern Miss baseball discussion.
HATTIESBURG – In the first game of a two-game series between two of the state’s top-ranked teams, it was visiting George County that drew first blood over Oak Grove.
