        Gatorade POY caps Houghton’s banner year

        Alley Houghton was in for a surprise Tuesday morning. Lafayette High’s rising senior soccer player joined the rest of her teammates for a meeting called by coach Melinda Scruggs. Something else could’ve come up, Houghton thought, but she figured the Commodores’ state championship rings had arrived and that Scruggs wanted to hand them out. That wasn’t it. Scruggs instead played a video. By the time it was over, Houghton learned she had been selected as the Mississippi Gatorade Player of the Year. Gatorade is in its third decade of selecting players of the year in each state in partnership with USA Today High School Sports, and Houghton is the first player in school history to receive the prestigious honor in girls’ soccer. (May 25, 2015, Page 6)

            When Grae Kessinger fielded Cameron Schultz’s grounder and threw across for the final out, the mission was accomplished. Oxford’s 9-0 pasting of George County on Thursday earned the Chargers the MHSAA Class 5A state championship and finally extinguished the flames of disappointment that had been blazing for a year. Ever since New Hope prevented this from possibly happening for the Chargers last season in the North Half finals, Oxford’s had one job. Now it’s complete. (May 24, 2015, Page 2B)

              Christian Trent and Brady Bramlett will be well rested by the time they are needed to pitch in the NCAA regionals.
