One of the main goals for the Lafayette Commodores heading into Week 2 is to cut down on the mistakes made in the season opener at Tupelo. In the 36-21 loss, LHS coach Eric Robertson saw his young team do things that past teams haven’t but the good news he knows they are fixable. (August 29, 2013, Page 8)

It’s hard to imagine Lafayette could have opened its Division 2-4A schedule any better than it did Tuesday night at W.V. Brewer Field.
Lafayette’s boys basketball program continued to show improvement and a turnaround under second-year coach Nacoma James on Tuesday night in the elimination round of the Division 2-4A Tournament. Playing the host North Pontotoc Vikings, the Commodores were able to make enough plays, both on offense and defense, late to pull out a 65-63 win and advance to play No. 1 seed Tunica-Rosa Fort on Thursday evening. Tuesday’s win also advanced the ‘Dores to the MHSAA’s Class 4A playoffs for the first time in seven years. (February 13, 2013, Page 7)
