Lafayette High baseball headed to the FHSAA finals

Mayo —

The Lafayette High boys baseball team defeated Trenton High in the Region 3-1A championship game on Tuesday, May 13, in Mayo.

Trenton, the defending state champions, were the heavy favorites to return to the FHSAA Finals in Ft. Myers next week.  After spotting the visiting Tigers three runs in the first inning, the Hornets battled back and kept it close behind the outstanding pitching of sophomore Micah Byrd and a stingy defense.  Lafayette entered their half of the sixth inning down 5-4 and their bats came alive and with two out, the Hornets generated five runs to take a 9-5 lead that would hold-up through the top of the seventh. 

Lafayette will now travel to JetBlue Park in Ft. Myers for the semifinal game on Monday, May 19, against Chipley High and the winner of that game will play fro the FHSAA Class 1A state championship on Tuesday.
