Lafayette centerfielder Tyrus Williams and pitcher Noah Robinson were named to the Mississippi Association of Coaches Class 5A All-State team this week after leading the Commodores to the 2022 Region 2-5A title.

Williams earned First Team honors after the Washington State commit posted a .425 batting average to lead the Commodores to their third consecutive district title.

He led the team in nearly every batting category this season, compiling a 1.287 OPS in just under 100 plate appearances.

Robinson put together a tremendous season on the mound to earn Second Team honors, posting an astounding 1.05 ERA in nine appearances.

The junior righty mowed through opposing lineups all season, holding opponents to a .172 batting average en route to an impressive 7-1 record.

The Commodores saw their season come to a premature ending as they were swept by rival Saltillo in the second round of the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs. The loss marked their second consecutive postseason defeat at the hands of the Tigers after they fell to Saltillo in the North Half championship series last season.
