In Thursday night’s Class 3A North Half showdown between the Blue Devils of Water Valley and Booneville, it wasn’t a string of towering home runs, but a series of perfectly placed taps that made the difference.
Following back-to-back bunt singles that were perfectly placed on either side of the pitcher’s mound to load the bases in the bottom of the seventh, eighth grade catcher Andrew Lambert lofted a ball just out of the infield.
The flare scored Jeiron Jones before the ball had even landed in shallow right field, giving Booneville a 5-4 victory at Harold T. White Field. (May 14, 2010, Page 6A)

In the world of sports, more often than not success is measured in wins and losses, titles won and records set.
But in all honesty, there’s much more to sports than what goes in the scoreboard section of a newspaper and this season the Lafayette Commodores proved just that.
Sure, they didn’t make it out of the second round of the Class 4A MHSAA playoffs, but so what?
