Either way, Jim, who passed away late last week, will be missed by all who enjoyed the way he practiced his craft on the radio. (March 5, 2015, Page 4A)

                  SOFTBALL PREVIEW: ‘Dores looking to build on historic campaign

                  Last season, the Lafayette High softball team was two games away from playing for a state championship until it ran into a Houston team that swept the Commodores in the North Half series. The Commodores want to get back there this year and get further, but that could be easier said than done as they lost a good portion of their lineup due to graduation, including ace pitcher Avery McCullough and her battery mate, Rae Drewery. (February 24, 2015, Page 6)

                    LHS girls fall just short in division title game

                    It wasn’t the prettiest game you’ve ever seen, but what it lacked in style points it more than made up for with back-and-forth, in-your-face basketball. In the end, it came down to — as so many close games do — the team that made the last play. Saturday night, it was Ripley which got a putback from Dayzsha Rogan 1:12 left to score the winning basket and then it was Rogan who scooted in for a runout layup with seconds to go after a missed free throw by Lafayette to give the regular-season Division 2-4A champion Lady Tigers a 32-29 victory over Lafayette in the 2-4A tournament championship game at the LHS gym. (February 22, 2015, Page 2B)
