Oxford’s Hill to retire at end of 2015 season

The 2015 season will be the last for one of the most recognizable faces in Oxford High sports. Johnny Hill is stepping down as the Chargers’ football coach in December, he said Wednesday. Hill, who has spent 22 of his near four decades of coaching at Oxford over two different stints, will be with the school system for the fall semester of the 2015-16 school year before officially retiring at Christmas. (January 29, 2015, Page 6A)

        Mavericks rally to end Oxford’s season

        MADISON – For the second straight year, Oxford’s postseason stay was a short one.

            Lady ‘Dores draw Caledonia to begin Playoffs

            Lafayette’s girls soccer team isn’t all that familiar with its first playoff opponent, but head coach Melinda Scruggs has exhausted nearly every avenue to find out what she can to get her team prepared. Time to find out if it’s paid off. The Commodores will entertain Caledonia tonight at 5 at William L. Buford Stadium in the opening round of the MHSAA Class 4A playoffs. Lafayette went unscathed through Division 3-4A play to earn the division’s top postseason seed while the Confederates finished runner-up in Division 2-4A. (January 27, 2015, Page 6)

                Recruiting Notebook: OL commit Richmond doesn’t rule out post-NSD decisoin

                Offensive lineman Drew Richmond had what he called a “good trip” to Oxford over the weekend for his official visit, but the Ole Miss commitment’s recruitment isn’t over. In fact, it could go past National Signing Day. The elite offensive tackle from Memphis University School verbally committed to the Rebels back in September over the likes of Tennessee, Alabama and Ohio State and made the short drive back to campus to join other commits and top targets for Ole Miss’ big recruiting weekend before leaving Sunday. (January 26, 2015, Page 6, 7)

                  Oxford aiming for deeper 5A postseason run

                  The Oxford boys’ soccer team has been itching to get back to this point. Now the goal for the Chargers is to hang around a little while. Oxford is back in the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs after sharing the Division 2-5A regular-season championship with Saltillo. The Chargers lost the coin clip to determine which team would be the division’s top seed, meaning Oxford will open the postseason on the road against Germantown on Tuesday at 7 p.m. (January 26, 2015, Page 6)

                    Lady Chargers playing well at right time

                    Oxford’s girls soccer team will start the postseason on the road. With the way the Chargers have been playing as of late, that’s perfectly fine with head coach Laura Flint. The Chargers will try to avoid going one-and-done in the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs Tuesday when they travel to Madison to take on Division 3-5A champion Germantown. The match will begin at 5:30 p.m. (January 26, 2015, Page 6, 7)
