The Lafayette Lady Commodores had a lot on their mind during Thursday’s match at Lewisburg. Having fallen to the Lady Patriots twice during the regular season, and with a second-straight trip to Jackson for the state tournament on the line, the Lady ‘Dores played an emotional first game.
Eventually, however, the momentum swung in Lewisburg’s favor and the Lady Commodores were never able to recover, dropping the match 3-1 (15-25, 25-19, 25-15, 25-16). (October 8, 2010, Page 7A)
While the gridiron Commodores remain a heavy favorite Friday when they host Senatobia at 7 p.m., coach Anthony Hart has been preparing his team this week for a battle at William L. Buford Stadium.
The Warriors enter the Region 2-4A matchup with a 4-2 record and are fresh off of lopsided victories over Byhalia and North Panola. Senatobia should also be fresh coming off of a bye week. (October 7, 2010, Page 6)
Lafayette’s eighth-grade football team remained perfect on the season Tuesday night with its second win over Oxford, while the seventh-grade Chargers used early miscues by the Commodores to help post a 22-8 win at William L. Buford Stadium.
The seventh-grade Chargers improved to 3-1-1 on the year with the win over the Commodores (2-3-1). (October 6, 2010, Page 8)
While Lafayette still defeated Ackerman 3-0 (25-20, 25-17, 25-16) at home to advance to the third round of the Class 1 playoffs, Tuesday’s victory was not one of those matches. (October 6, 2010, Page 9)

All season the Lafayette volleyball team has battled sluggish starts.
Saturday’s Class 1 first-round playoff matchup at Caledonia was no different, but luckily for the Lady Commodores, they were able to overcome slow starts in all three games to claim a 3-0 (25-20, 25-16, 25-14) victory. (more…) (October 4, 2010, Page 4B)
Lafayette’s march towards a second-straight Region 2-4A title continued with another dominating performance on both sides of the ball Friday night. The No. 1 Commodores had their way from the start with the North Panola Cougars in a game that eventually turned into a one-sided 49-0 win.
LHS (7-0 overall, 3-0 Region 2-4A) has only been challenged for a half in its three region games so far this season, a fact that means the Commodores are actually playing more against themselves than the opponent on the field each week. (October 4, 2010, Page 5B)

For a young Oxford squad, the tournament meant the end to what has been a difficult season with only one senior.
For Lafayette, the tournament — in which the Lady ‘Dores topped Oxford 2-0 (25-16, 25-11) and Tupelo 2-0 (25-20, 25-20) — was a good warmup for their first-round playoff match on Saturday at Caledonia. (October 1, 2010, Page 6A)
