‘Totally different’ Lady Chargers hope to repeat

Oxford’s Lady Chargers will begin their journey to defend their Class 5A state title Saturday against Senatobia in the North Panola Classic. For coach Shayne Linzy, talk about winning a second consecutive championship, and going undefeated in the process like last year’s team, was addressed before the season. (November 2, 2012, Page 7A)

Linzy’s move to Oxford pays dividends

Oxford girls basketball coach Shayne Linzy remembers the phone call he got from athletics director Johnny Hill in June 2009 informing him he had been selected to take over the Lady Chargers after former coach Shane Stone left for Potts Camp. It was a moment that Linzy would never forget because of what it meant to him personally and what it meant for his coaching career. (June 14, 2012, Page 6)

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)

Lady Chargers win Region 1-5A title

Dominant is what the Oxford Lady Chargers were Saturday in the Region 1-5A meet held at Oxford’s Bobby Holcomb Field. Oxford finished first in the meet with 212 points, almost 100 more than second-place finisher Center Hill (117). The Lady Chargers also finished with seven first-place finishes and a bevy of seconds to earn the title. First-place finishes garner 10 points, while second-place finishes garner eight.

Oxford teams roll to division titles

Rainy conditions at Bobby Holcomb Field on Tuesday were only able to slow, not stop, the Oxford Chargers and Lady Chargers in the annual Division 2-5A meet. Both teams won the respective team titles despite the weather that slowed the track for running events. (more…) (April 18, 2012, Page 8)

Sisk caps perfect senior year with POY award

Oxford’s Erika Sisk must have felt like she was in a whirlwind the past 30 days. It was exactly a month ago that the standout point guard led the Lady Chargers to their first Class 5A title in school history and the school’s first undefeated season at 33-0.

Moments after celebrating and holding up the coveted MHSAA gold ball with her teammates, Sisk found out she had been named to the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star game and a few days after that, she was tabbed to the All-State team. (more…) (April 4, 2012, Page 1B)
