The Standard, a men’s conference geared toward making men more in touch with Jesus Christ, returns to Oxford and the Ole Miss community Friday and Saturday. The two-day conference, which features challenging talks and presentations from the likes of Ole Miss football coach Houston Nutt and men’s basketball coach Andy Kennedy, will be held at C.M. “Tad” Smith Coliseum.

There were a few moments after Oxford scored five runs in the bottom of the second inning in Tuesday’s District 2-5A home game with New Hope that Chargers’ coach Bradley Roberson said he felt good about his team’s chances the rest of the way.
“I knew that these guys were going to come out and compete tonight. When we were up 5-3, I had a good feeling about the game to be honest,” Roberson said. “But again, I knew even though it was 5-3, (New Hope) had barreled up some balls early themselves. I knew we needed to try and get some more (runs) if we were going to win the ballgame.”
Unfortunately for Roberson and his team, his intuition proved to be right as the Trojans exploded offensively, scoring four runs in three different innings after the third en route to an eventual 16-5 win. (April 14, 2010, Page 3B)

There was a game early on in the season where the light turned on for Lafayette’s Shaquilla Isom and things got a whole lot easier on the court. It’s not that Isom hadn’t shown flashes of her all-around ability as a sophomore, but there was a marked difference in the way she handled herself on the court compared to any point during the 2008-09 campaign.

The majority of Ole Miss’ spring football practices can be summed up in two words — dominant defense.
Lately, however, the offense has been fighting back.
If the offensive line is going to continue to progress, it’s going to need junior left guard Alex “Tank” Washington to fill in for some of the departed veterans.
More specifically, though, it’s going to need Washington, who currently tips the scale at 350 pounds, to shed some weight. (April 13, 2010, Page 2B)
