Oxford advanced to a sixth straight state championship in tennis by defeating Starkville 6-1 Friday afternoon. Rain forced the match to be played indoors at the Gillom Sports Center. OHS won mixed doubles, No. 1 boys doubles and No. 1 girls doubles first before capturing the match at No. 2 boys doubles.
OHS coach Louis Nash was very thankful to Ole Miss men’s tennis coach Billy Chadwick and the rest of the Ole Miss athletic officials for their help in securing Gillom.
