Kendricks stepping down as OHS track coach

One of the most successful coaches at Oxford High School throughout the past 13 years is stepping away from one of his roles.
Scott Kendricks, who has led the Chargers to five state championships in track, and most recently helped guide the Chargers to a cross-country title in 2011, has resigned from his post as head boy’s track coach, effective immediately. (June 1, 2012, Page 7A)

Balance, strong finish key Oxford’s latest victory

PEARL — Oxford senior Mollie Beth Ott had an idea that her first-place finish in the pole vault was very important to how the Lady Chargers closed out Friday’s MHSAA Class 5A state track meet at Pearl High School when some extra teammates came over to watch her last few attempts.

With Oxford ahead of Pearl by only three points (72-69) with two events left to be scored, Ott’s finish — as well as how teammate Sally Rychlak fared — in the pole vault was critical to deciding a third straight state championship for the Lady Chargers.

Ott knew that Kristen Dickerson had fallen in the 300 meter hurdles and did not record a point. She was vaulting when members of the 4×100 relay team collided and finished eighth, which meant only one point for a team that should have finished fourth. Ott also knew that 3,200 runner Audrey Dayan was held out of Friday’s meet due to an injury, meaning no additional points in an event she was seeded third in. (May 14, 2012, Page 1B)

OHS Lady Chargers have big aspirations

Today’s MHSAA Class 5A state track meet at Pearl High School will be decided between Oxford’s incredible depth in field events and long-distance running events against Pearl’s overall depth. The Lady Chargers are the two-time defending state champions and looking to win yet again. In order for that to happen, Oxford will have to continue to perform at a high level like they have the past three weeks in the division, region and North Half meets. (May 11, 2012, Page 7A)

Oxford set to host EAGLE Invitational

Jackets swarm Chargers in second round

Motivated by what Starkville head coach Brian Bennett described as a less than desired performance in their regular-season matchup with Oxford, the visiting Jackets played an aggressive breed of soccer that netted them a 4-2 road victory and a trip to the third round of the Class 5A playoffs.

The loss eliminates the Chargers (13-3-3 overall) from the playoffs. (January 30, 2012, Page 2B)

Pressure leads Oxford to second round

Heading into Tuesday night’s annual postseason showdown with Callaway, the Oxford Chargers coaches knew a couple of things: The visiting Chargers were going to be athletic, fast, and able to capitalize on any chances they were provided.

So what did Oxford do against its Class 5A first-round opponent?

The home Chargers attacked, kept pressure on Callaway and continued to attack even in the dwindling minutes of their 3-1 victory at Bobby Holcomb Field. (January 25, 2012, Page 6)
