LHS wins another NEMCABB title

NEW ALBANY — A betting man would have been a fool to gamble on anyone other than D.K. Buford to hit an inside-the-park home run.

Said gambler would have been wrong, too, Wednesday.

Already leading Pontotoc by three runs, Lafayette shortstop Josh Keel hit a hard shot past the third baseman. The rising senior hustled around the bases and beat the relay throw home on a bang-bang play, highlighting an error-filled 9-2 victory.

The Commodores’ 3-0 run through the single-elimination portion of the NEMCABB Tournament secured their second consecutive championship.

Assistant coach Josh Reagan joked that he gave Keel a hard time for showing up Buford, the resident speedster on the team.

Keel admitted he even surprised himself.
