LHS girls keep season alive, beat Greenwood 55-50

After nearly a week-long layoff the Lafayette High girls basketball team finally began their playoff run. Once the final buzzer sounded it was well worth the wait as the Lady Commodores knocked off the Greenwood Lady Bulldogs 55-50 to advance to the second round of the MHSAA Class 4A state playoffs inside the LHS gym Saturday afternoon. (March 1, 2015, Page 2B)

      BASEBALL PREVIEW: Depth, versatility lead ‘Dores into new campaign

      Twenty wins. A division championship. A deep postseason run.

      Those accomplishments made the Lafayette High baseball team’s 2014 season a success, but the Commodores’ ultimate goal of an MHSAA Class 4A state title was cut short when they were bounced from the playoffs by eventual champion West Lauderdale.

        SOFTBALL PREVIEW: ‘Dores looking to build on historic campaign

        Last season, the Lafayette High softball team was two games away from playing for a state championship until it ran into a Houston team that swept the Commodores in the North Half series. The Commodores want to get back there this year and get further, but that could be easier said than done as they lost a good portion of their lineup due to graduation, including ace pitcher Avery McCullough and her battery mate, Rae Drewery. (February 24, 2015, Page 6)

            LHS girls fall just short in division title game

            It wasn’t the prettiest game you’ve ever seen, but what it lacked in style points it more than made up for with back-and-forth, in-your-face basketball. In the end, it came down to — as so many close games do — the team that made the last play. Saturday night, it was Ripley which got a putback from Dayzsha Rogan 1:12 left to score the winning basket and then it was Rogan who scooted in for a runout layup with seconds to go after a missed free throw by Lafayette to give the regular-season Division 2-4A champion Lady Tigers a 32-29 victory over Lafayette in the 2-4A tournament championship game at the LHS gym. (February 22, 2015, Page 2B)

                  2-4A tourney loss caps winless season for ‘Dores

                  As forgettable a season as it’s been for the Lafayette High boys basketball team, the Commodores just needed one win to extend their season. But their Division 2-5A tournament opener ended just like all the others. Lafayette’s season came to an end Wednesday with a 57-50 loss to New Albany at the Lafayette High gym. It was the 14th time the Commodores (0-14) took the court, and it was the 14th time they came up on the short end of the scoreboard. (February 19, 2015, Page 6A)

                    International Bowl ‘awesome experience’ for Johnson

                    Eli Johnson almost passed up an opportunity to represent his country on the football field. Looking back, he’s glad he didn’t. The Lafayette High offensive lineman suited up for Team USA in the 18-and-under International Bowl played Jan. 30 in Arlington Texas at AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys. Canada was the opponent in a game that showcased more than 100 of North America’s top high school juniors. (February 11, 2015, Page 1B)
