Lafayette holds off Oxford to win in 5

Oxford didn’t make it easy, but Lafayette notched another win over the Lady Chargers Thursday night.
Lafayette won the first two games only to watch Oxford fight back to take the next two before using a fast start in the fifth and final game to claim a 3-2 (25-21, 26-24, 17-25, 14-25, 15-9) victory at the LHS gymnasium to sweep the season series from the Lady Chargers. (October 11, 2013, Page 6A)

LHS overcomes 2-0 deficit to top OHS

Lafayette’s varsity volleyball team showed Thursday night why it will be a strong contender for the Class I, District 2 title this season. (September 6, 2013, Page 6A)

Pearson makes all the plays and more for OHS

Jessica Pearson always had a knack of turning nothing into something.

As the setter on Oxford’s volleyball team, it wasn’t uncommon to see Pearson not only set up a teammate for the kill when the Lady Chargers’ passing was on point, but also go sprawling out of bounds in an attempt to keep the play alive. (more…) (October 25, 2012, Page 1B)

Oxford ends season on high note

The 2012 season didn’t go the way Oxford had hoped, but Thursday night’s season finale provided at least a little solace for the home team.

Looking to end the season on a high note, the Lady Chargers earned a convincing 3-0 (25-19, 25-19, 25-18) victory over Corinth at the OHS gym. (September 28, 2012, Page 7A)

LHS wins hard-fought Crosstown match

Nothing says Crosstown volleyball match like having to claw and scratch for every point.

That’s exactly what happened Tuesday at the Oxford High gym as the visiting Lady Commodores claimed a 3-1 (22-25, 25-17, 25-23, 25-17) victory over the host school. (September 12, 2012, Page 7)

OHS unable to find rally magic again

The Oxford High volleyball team staged one of the program’s more impressive comebacks in recent years Tuesday, rallying from an early deficit to defeat Hernando in five sets.

The Lady Chargers were unable to replicate that magic Thursday against Lewisburg. (more…) (August 24, 2012, Page 7A)

Lady Warriors no match for Oxford

The Lady Chargers finally put away an opponent convincingly on Thursday.

All it took was a little tinkering. (more…) (August 10, 2012, Page 6A)

Lady Chargers claim home opener

The Lady Chargers volleyball squad got Oxford’s 2012-13 school year off to a good start Tuesday by sweeping the visiting Ripley Lady Tigers 3-0 (25-20, 25-19, 25-14) at the OHS gym.

The performance was far from perfect, but for an OHS squad that returns just four members from the 2011 varsity squad, a win is a win. (August 8, 2012, Page 7)

Versatile Smith took her game to another level

Heading into this season Lafayette volleyball coach Rachel Wenzel was faced with a rather large problem: How could the Lady Commodores replace the production and leadership that left along with the graduated senior class?

She knew it would be no easy task, but senior middle blocker Ashley Smith went to Wenzel and requested that her coach trust her enough to allow her to play all the way around, rather than be substituted in the back row. (more…) (October 26, 2011, Page 1B)

OHS ends season with win over LHS

It wasn’t pretty, but the Oxford Chargers volleyball squad was able to conclude their season on Thursday with a 2-0 (26-24, 25-18) defeat of crosstown rival Lafayette at the LHS gym.

After Oxford jumped out to an 8-0 lead in the first set, Lafayette chipped away at the lead and eventually tied the set at 17-17 and again at 19-19. (more…) (September 30, 2011, Page 7A)
