‘Dores hold off ‘Cats to earn first win

Lafayette’s most complete basketball game of the season ended up leading to the Commodores’ first win of the year Wednesday night in the “O” Town Showdown. Led by the hot shooting of Brandon Mack early and some late stops on defense, the Commodores (1-4 overall) topped Calhoun City 57-53. (December 29, 2011, Page 7)

LHS showing improvement despite losses

MYRTLE — Taking steps and making improvements each game has been the goal of Lafayette boy’s basketball coach Nacoma James since the season started Dec. 9. Lafayette was unable to earn any wins in this weekend’s Myrtle Christmas Clash, but the Commodores appear to be heading in the right direction. (December 19, 2011, Page 7)

Lady Commodores nip Bruce

A fast start and a good display of toughness late in the game proved to be the winning formula for the Lafayette Lady Commodores Tuesday night in the LHS gym.

LHS won its first game of the season with a 57-55 triumph over Bruce, a game that coach Amy Sutton said helped her team find their identity. (November 30, 2011, Page 9)

Sutton pleased with her new lineup so far

Lafayette head coach Amy Sutton got a glimpse of what life will be like without the super senior trio of Nikki McChristian, Brianna Fisher and Shaq Isom this past weekend when the Lady Commodores participated in Hickory Flat’s jamboree.

In defeating Alcorn Central 30-29 and Holly Springs 28-16 in two two-quarter contests, Sutton saw a lot of promise. (November 3, 2011, Page 8)

Oxford teams capture EAGLE titles

Rain over the weekend could only postpone, not prevent, the Oxford Chargers and Lady Chargers from winning the 10th annual EAGLE Invitational on Monday at Bobby Holcomb Field.

While the meet was scheduled for Saturday and pushed back two days, the delay didn’t matter as the Chargers totaled 229 points to capture the title, while the Lady Chargers finished with 143.5 points. (more…) (March 29, 2011, Page 8)

Lady ‘Dores keep rolling in 4A playoffs

A team-first approach made a huge difference for the Lafayette Lady Commodores in their first week of postseason play in the region tournament and again this past Monday in the first round of the Class 4A playoffs.

Lafayette defeated Itawamba AHS Monday to advance to the North Half tournament so it wasn’t shocking to see LHS continue that approach Thursday in a matchup with Kosciusko at Pontotoc High. Five Lady Commodores scored in double figures for coach Amy Sutton’s team and the end result was a 84-53 thrashing and a rematch of last year’s 4A North Half title game against New Albany tonight. (February 18, 2011, Page 6A)
