Chargers putting spring emphasis on defense

OHS’s latest powerlifiting title ‘a special thing’

Oxford’s lifters and coach had a good idea even before the final count was tallied. Six lifters helped the Chargers pile up 28 points in the morning session of Saturday’s MHSAA Class 5A powerlifting meet in Jackson. With four more lifters still to take their turn in the afternoon, it was going to be difficult for anybody to stop Oxford’s chase for another title (April 20, 2015, Page 6)

OHS boys powerlifting claim third straight state title

The Oxford High boys powerlifting team pulled off the three-peat. The Chargers made it back-to-back-to-back MHSAA Class 5A championships at the state meet Saturday in Jackson. Oxford finished with 44 total points as nine of the Chargers’ 10 lifters medaled in their respective weight classes. (April 19, 2015, Page 1B)

Oxford powerlifters aiming for three-peat at state meet

Oxford’s boys powerlifting team has some pieces missing from its recent state championship teams, but the Chargers are counting on their depth and experience to deliver yet another MHSAA Class 5A title. The Chargers will try to win their third straight state crown Saturday in Jackson and have the numbers to make them the favorite. Ten lifters qualified for the state meet at North Half last month, the most of any 5A team and the same number Oxford carried to Jackson last season. (April 17, 2015, Page 1B)

Oxford’s quest for first state championship falls short

STARKVILLE — Oxford didn’t finish the drill. A rallying cry that was born out of the championship disappointment of a season ago carried Oxford all year. The Chargers spent all of August, September, October and November earning its way back to the final day of the season in December to give themselves another shot at the MHSAA Class 5A state title. (December 7, 2014, Page 1B)

A year later, Oxford wants to ‘finish the drill’

CLINTON — Flanked by some of his coaching peers and staring out into a sea of officials, administrators and media members statewide, Oxford coach Johnny Hill let everyone in on what may be the worst kept secret in Mississippi high school football. Now that they’re back in the MHSAA Class 5A state championship game, the Chargers don’t want a repeat of what happened last year. (December 2, 2014, Page 6)
