The Lady Commodores left little doubt on their end who deserves to be in the upcoming MHSAA Class 4A playoffs.
After dropping their last two division games, the Lady Commodores pieced together a near perfect effort to up-end crosstown rival Oxford 9-1 on the road.

A split in middle school softball action between Lafayette and Oxford at the Charger Classic Friday evening was secondary to the valuable playing time and experience earned on the field for the two teams.
In the first action of the year for the two first-year programs, the goal of playing against somebody else and working out some kinks was gained in the two, one-hour contests. (more…) (February 27, 2012, Page 3B)
Talent and effort are two of the biggest things that help define how a team fares in high school athletics but there is also no substitute for experience and the understanding of a game as sophisticated as softball can be sometimes. (February 22, 2012, Page 7)
