Make that two weeks, and two state titles for Lafayette High.

LHS won the MHSAA bowling championship on Friday, giving the school its first bowling title with a sweep over Itawamba AHS 222-191, 143-137, 160-155 for the Class II boys title

The game was a best-of-five Baker Format roll-off and concluded the Class II boy’s tournament, which included teams in Class 4A and 5A.

Lafayette’s Jakob Robertson picked up a spare in the 10th frame, and then threw a strike that closed out the match and clinched the championship.

This comes just one week after the Commodores claimed the 5A girl’s state soccer title with a win over Long Beach.

The Baker Format has five bowlers from each team competing against each other in alternating frames.
