‘Dores prepared for tough series with AHS

Lafayette’s opponent in the next round of the MHSAA’s Class 4A playoffs is not an unknown to the Commodores, especially older members of the team. (more…) (April 25, 2012, Page 6)

‘Dores earn sweep over NPHS Vikings

Lafayette punctuated the end of the regular season with an 8-6 victory over North Pontotoc under its belt. The win Wednesday afternoon at W.V.

Wins move ‘Dores closer to spot in 4A playoffs

The Lafayette High School baseball team moved one step closer to locking up a playoff spot with a pair of wins against Rosa Fort on Tuesday evening. The Commodores (10-10 overall, 5-3 Region 2-4A) knocked off the Lions 15-0 and 12-0 in two run-ruled shortened games at W.V. Brewer Field. (April 11, 2012, Page 9)

Eli Murphree throws Senatobia a curve

Lafayette’s Eli Murphree picked a great time to find his curveball. Murphree’s best outing on the mound of the year not only ended a three-game losing streak, but Monday night’s 3-1 win over Senatobia also gave the Commodores some much needed momentum heading into the stretch run of the Division 2-4A schedule.

Murphree went the distance on the mound for the Commodores (7-10 overall, 2-3 in 2-4A) and limited the Warriors to five hits thanks in large part to the way he threw his curveball compared to the other times he has pitched. (April 3, 2012, Page 8)

Lear hits, pitches Oxford past LHS

It seems like a safe bet that Oxford senior James Lear will remember the last two days of March 2012 when he reflects on his high school career in a few years. One night after earning a save in Oxford’s 5-4 win over Saltillo, Lear led the Chargers to a 10-8 win over cross-town rival Lafayette at W.V. Brewer Field on Saturday afternoon.

Patriots nip Lafayette in divisional pitching duel

Lafayette’s Division 2-4A game with Lewisburg literally came down to one play. Unfortunately for the Commodores, the play didn’t go in their favor.

Three nights after beating Lafayette by nine runs, Lewisburg snuck out of W.V. Brewer Field with a 2-1 win to earn a season sweep.

Friday night’s game was decided in the top of the sixth inning when Lewisburg broke a 1-1 tie on a play at the plate. (April 2, 2012, Page 9)

Murphree, Stanley ‘lift up’ LHS in win

It took 13 games for the Lafayette High School baseball team to record its first home run of the 2012 season, proving the old adage of good things come to those who wait.

John Murphree broke a 2-2 tie in the fourth inning when he belted an offering from New Albany pitcher Ben Foster over the left field fence for a two-run home run to put the ‘Dores ahead 4-2 in what would turn out to be a 7-2 win over the Division 2-4A rival Bulldogs at W.V. Brewer Field on Friday night. (more…) (March 26, 2012, Page 7)
