Lafayette and Sayre win district championships

LEXINGTON, Ky (WTVQ) – This week the playoffs have arrived for the Kentucky high school baseball and softball teams. A welcome sight since their entire season was canceled last season due to the pandemic.

Here in Lexington, several tournaments take place across the city. The 43rd District softball tournament kicked off Monday between LCA and Dunbar.

While softball tournaments are just beginning, baseball tournaments are coming to an end. Sayre faced Frederick Douglass for the 42nd District Championship earlier in the day. Then Lafayette faced LCA for the 43rd district championship in a nightcap.
