WOODVILLE — The Wilkinson County Christian Academy Rams advanced to the semifinals of the MAIS Class 3A South State Playoffs after taking care of the Claiborne Academy Rams 10-5 last Friday afternoon in Game 2 of the best-of-three first-round series.

District 4 No. 1 seed WCCA scored four runs in the bottom of the second thanks to RBI singles by Tyler McKlemurry, winning pitcher Brayden Ready, Charles Grezaffi, and Jacob Sessions. The Rams added five runs in the bottom of the third inning Ready, Gavin Davis, and Jack Orgeron each drove in runs.

Ready went the distance on the mound for the Rams and allowed five runs on six hits, struck out seven batters and walked just one batter. He also had two baes hits.
