The Lafayette basketball program had a difficult night on Friday against Center Hill.
While the Lady Commodores got caught up in a free-throw filled fourth quarter during their 52-46 loss, the Commodores were unable to match the Mustangs’ versatility in a 76-50 loss. (January 31, 2011, Page 7)

Reports of the Lafayette Lady Commodores’ demise may have been slightly premature.
On Thursday, Lafayette virtually checked its ticket to the playoffs with a convincing 3-1 (25-16, 21-25, 25-10, 25-16) win over Class I, Region 2 opponent Center Hill.
The emotional victory subsequently put the Mustangs and Lady Commodores in a tie for the second spot in Region 2, but according to the Mississippi High School Activities Association’s rule book, Lafayette will advance because it wins the third tie breaker. (September 24, 2010, Page 7A)
Two valuable lessons about being prepared at the start of a game and not underestimating an opposing team were the big things the Lafayette Commodores took away from their 42-24 win over Center Hill Friday night.
A slow start by the normally reliable LHS defense resulted in 17 first-half points for the Mustangs, while the overall execution of the Commodores, a group that usually has no trouble putting teams away early, was only enhanced for the future.
For coach Anthony Hart, the win, which improved the Commodores to 5-0 on the year overall and 1-0 in Region 2-4A play, turned out to be a good test for his team. (September 20, 2010, Page 4B)
It’s not often that the remaining part of a baseball season turns from mediocre to something outstanding, but for the Oxford Chargers, a negative event and one-run loss to Center Hill may turn out to be exactly what they needed. (March 17, 2010, Page 7A)
