Lafayette rallies past Warriors to stay atop division

Hunter Bishop only had one thought on his mind. “Run as fast as you can,” Bishop said afterward. “Just run.” Bishop scored the game-winning run in Lafayette’s 6-5 win over Senatobia in extra innings Friday at W.V. Brewer Field, capping a rally from five runs down and helping the Commodores stay ahead in the race for the Division 2-4A championship. (April 12, 2015, Page 3B)

There’s no shortage of targets for quarterbacks Ryan Buchanan, DeVante Kincade and Chad Kelly to throw to even with Laquon Treadwell out, but even the simplest passes aren’t always resulting in completions. (April 10, 2015, Page 6A)
