Chargers rout West Point for share of 2-5A title

Not even Oxford’s most productive night of offense could separate the top two teams in Division 2-5A boys soccer standings. The Chargers wrapped up division play with little resistance Friday, finding the back of the net early and often in a 14-0 rout of West Point on Senior Night at Bobby Holcomb Field to secure a share of the division title with Saltillo. (January 18, 2015, Page 1B, 4B)

        ALL-AREA FOOTBALL: Phillips hits stride to run up record season for Chargers

        Oxford coach Johnny Hill isn’t all that surprised by what his running back was able to do on the football field this season. Not after seeing what he did when he wasn’t necessarily the go-to guy. No tailback in school history has run for more yards than Kenzie Phillips did this fall. In just his second season as a full-time starter, the junior set a record with 1,737 yards. His 29 rushing touchdowns are also a new single-season record, breaking his own mark of 24 set just last season. His performance makes him this year’s EAGLE Player of the Year. Phillips is the third straight Charger to earn the distinction. (December 23, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

          Oxford boys win pair on final day

          The Oxford boys soccer team’s patience was tested Saturday. The Chargers were less than 24 hours removed from a 2-2 draw against Olive Branch in their opening match of the Oxford Showcase and found themselves in a scoreless deadlock deep into the second half despite numerous scoring chances against New Hope at FNC Park. But Oxford finally broke through on Tristan Orman’s penalty kick for the match’s only goal, giving the Chargers their first win of the tournament. The Lady Chargers went 1-1-1 over the weekend. (December 21, 2014, Page 4B)

            Oxford moves to 11-0 with rout of ‘Dores

            Once Oxford’s boys basketball team stopped thinking and started playing, there wasn’t much Lafayette could do to slow the Chargers down. Oxford turned an early seesaw affair into a rout by turning smothering defense into instant offense in an 80-42 victory over the rival Commodores at the Oxford High gym on Friday night that kept the Chargers unbeaten. Their 11-0 record matches the best start to a season in coach Drew Tyler’s 18-year tenure. Lafayette High’s girls team beat the Lady Chargers 50-47 (December 21, 2014, Page 1B, 2B)

              Hill: OHS wants to fill coaching vacancy ‘as soon as possible’

              Johnny Hill hasn’t gotten far in his search to find his son’s replacement, but his patience is already wearing thin. Oxford’s football coach is looking for a new defensive backs coach and co-defensive coordinator after Jake Hill was hired to be the head coach at New Albany last week following the resignation of Ron Price.

                    ALL-AREA VOLLEYBALL: Family, all-around game help serve up POY honor for ‘Dores’ Robinson

                    The holiday season is a time to be thankful. For Lafayette High’s Emily Robinson, it is a time for her to be thankful for family because if it was not for a particular family member showing her the sport of volleyball, she probably would not be this year’s EAGLE Player of the Year. (December 17, 2014, Page 1B)
