NATCHEZ —The Natchez Rams are headed to the United States Specialty Sports Association’s 13-and 14-year-old World Series in Lake Charles, La.

“We qualified earlier this year in Tupelo,” coach Gene Banks said. “We came out this year wanting to prove we can play with the best, now we get that chance.”

The Rams will start play Monday at noon against the Knights in one of two pool games to decide their seeding in the nine-team double-elimination tournament.
