Lafayette splits with CHS in divisional showdown

Lafayette wrapped up its home-and-home series on the pitch with Cleveland on Saturday, splitting with the visitors.

While the LHS girls cruised to a 6-0 victory on a gusty Saturday afternoon at William L. Buford Stadium, the Commodores were defeated 6-2.

In the girls’ showdown, Lafayette scored five goals in the first half and never let Cleveland gain any sort of confidence to get back in the game. (January 16, 2012, Page 8)

LHS soccer set to start season today

The Lafayette soccer teams will officially kick off their season today with road matches at Hernando.

Lady ‘Dores fall to defending 4A champs

The Lafayette Lady Commodores’ dream of making a deep run in the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs came to a premature end on Saturday.

Led by pitcher Brianna Gable, the defending Class 4A state champion Lady Vikings knocked off Lafayette on the road on Saturday 3-1. North Pontotoc won Game 1 of the best-of-three series at home, 4-3 in eight innings.

After taking a 3-0 lead in the first, Gable was able to consistently keep Lafayette’s batters off balance. (May 2, 2011, Page 2B)

Confident ‘Dores to face North Pontotoc

It’s been an interesting season for the Lafayette softball program to say the least.

While talking about her team’s upcoming Class 4A first round matchup against North Pontotoc on Thursday, head coach Melinda Scruggs agreed that the old adage “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” applies to her Lady Commodores. (April 29, 2011, Page 6A)
