Oxford’s goal of repeating as MHSAA Class 5A state champions in boys golf began with a promising start Monday at the Ole Miss Golf Course. The Chargers won the District 2-5A tournament with a final score of 326, 16 strokes better than Hernando’s 342. Center Hill was third in the meet with a 364. All three teams qualified to compete in next month’s 5A state tournament, which will be hosted at Ole Miss.
