Lafayette High School

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)

      2-4A tourney loss caps winless season for ‘Dores

      As forgettable a season as it’s been for the Lafayette High boys basketball team, the Commodores just needed one win to extend their season. But their Division 2-5A tournament opener ended just like all the others. Lafayette’s season came to an end Wednesday with a 57-50 loss to New Albany at the Lafayette High gym. It was the 14th time the Commodores (0-14) took the court, and it was the 14th time they came up on the short end of the scoreboard. (February 19, 2015, Page 6A)

        International Bowl ‘awesome experience’ for Johnson

        Eli Johnson almost passed up an opportunity to represent his country on the football field. Looking back, he’s glad he didn’t. The Lafayette High offensive lineman suited up for Team USA in the 18-and-under International Bowl played Jan. 30 in Arlington Texas at AT&T Stadium, the home of the Dallas Cowboys. Canada was the opponent in a game that showcased more than 100 of North America’s top high school juniors. (February 11, 2015, Page 1B)

                    Lafayette’s girls soccer team isn’t all that familiar with its first playoff opponent, but head coach Melinda Scruggs has exhausted nearly every avenue to find out what she can to get her team prepared. Time to find out if it’s paid off. The Commodores will entertain Caledonia tonight at 5 at William L. Buford Stadium in the opening round of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs.
