A routine trip to the mailbox Monday night produced some exciting news for Oxford girls basketball coach Shayne Linzy. While Linzy didn’t become an instant millionaire through a sweepstakes contest, he did receive a prize nonetheless.
Linzy’s Lady Chargers have won several individual awards this year due to a perfect 33-0 season that earned the school its first MHSAA Class 5A state title in the sport.
Linzy became the latest award winner when he was named the Girls Basketball Coach of the Year by the Mississippi Association of Coaches. A banquet to honor all coaches in each sport will be held June 22 in Jackson. (April 24, 2012, Page 8)
