The hearing for Wright City's case against the Oklahoma Secondary School Activities Association is 10 a.m. Friday in McCurtain County, Wright City assistant coach Joel Dickerson said.

The Lumberjax were forced to forfeit their Class A state baseball tournament quarterfinal game against Sterling on Tuesday after it was discovered they exceeded the limit of games they could play during the regular season.

Wright City, though, received a temporary restraining order Wednesday in hope of regaining its position in the tournament, which was scheduled to begin Thursday morning at Dolese Park but was postponed until Friday because of inclement weather.

OSSAA executive director Ed Sheakley said Wednesday that the hope was to get the injunction lifted or the hearing date moved up from its originally scheduled date of May 13.

Sheakley also said that if both of those options failed, the tournament would not start as originally planned with seven teams until a resolution is reached.
