Mavericks rally to end Oxford’s season

      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)

              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)

                    The Ole Miss women’s basketball team is off this weekend, and the Rebels deserve it. A seven-day stretch of back-to-back-to-back games against top-20 opponents ended Thursday night after a crushing 64-62 defeat at the hands of No. 18 Mississippi State. The Rebels (14-6, 4-3 Southeastern Conference) walked away with a 1-2 record after their gauntlet against Georgia, Texas A&M and the Bulldogs. (January 25, 2015, Page 1B)
