Devils, ‘Dores see positives from jamboree

WATER VALLEY — High school baseball returned to the area Monday in the form of two dress rehearsals for the Water Valley Blue Devils and Lafayette Commodores. Both teams played two four-inning contests at Blue Devil Field, including a matchup against each other in the nightcap of the day-long jamboree.
