The Lady Chargers won the 5A North Half title over Pearl, a year after defeating the Lady Pirates in the state championship, by scoring 147 points compared to 141 for the Lady Pirates. It was the third straight team title for the Lady Chargers, who qualified 14 athletes for Friday’s 5A state meet.
Oxford’s boys had an outstanding Saturday as the team turned in several strong performances, including a pole vault record of 17 feet set by Sam Kendricks, but it wasn’t enough to claim the title as Pearl edged OHS 161.5 to 157.
