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.
Lewisburg’s fast start to Tuesday’s Division 2-4A contest with Lafayette ended up becoming an even bigger factor late. Just as Lafayette’s offense seemed to pick up, three errors in the fifth inning allowed the Lady Patriots to garner three more runs and take an even bigger lead on LHS.
The end result was an 8-3 victory for Lewisburg, which was able to get back into the division race with its first win. (March 27, 2013, Page 8)
It took the Lady Commodores a little while to get warmed up Tuesday night. Once Lafayette’s bats got going, however, there was no turning back as the Lady ‘Dores run-ruled New Albany 14-4 to open their division schedule.
Friday night’s Crosstown Classic softball game with Oxford came down to the pitching of Lafayette’s Brooke Whitten. While the Lady Commodores got a couple of key insurance runs late in the 6-0 win, Whitten really didn’t need much help based on the effort she gave in the pitching circle.

Trailing by four runs, the Lady ‘Dores plated two runs in the last frame to get within striking distance before the Lady Patriots were able to close the game out and earn the 6-4 victory. (April 19, 2012, Page 8)
A successful approach at the plate for Lafayette paid off for the Lady Commodores on Monday night in their 13-1 win over Oxford. After falling behind 1-0 to the Lady Chargers in the first inning, LHS answered with nine runs in the second and four more in the third thanks to some successful bunting early coupled with some blasts from players such as Corey Hollis, Katrina Wilson, Kendall Glass and Rae Drewery.
