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)

Oxford earns home sweep of Clarksdale

Tara Ross proposed a deal her volleyball players couldn’t refuse: Win Thursday’s match against Clarksdale in three straight sets and there will be no practice on Friday.

The Lady Chargers responded to the wager. After cruising through the first two sets, Oxford had to rally to claim the third set and the match 3-0 (25-6, 25-7, 25-23). (September 23, 2011, Page 6A)

OHS cruises to 3-0 sweep over Amory

After a rather long stint away from the friendly confines of Oxford, the Lady Chargers volleyball team returned home victorious on Thursday, toppling the Amory Lady Panthers 3-0 (25-17, 25-6, 25-6). (September 16, 2011, Page 7A)

OHS rides fast starts to crosstown sweep

Quick starts in all three matches by Oxford, coupled with Lafayette’s inability to get into a groove until it was too late, led to the Lady Chargers claiming a 3-0 (25-14, 25-22, 25-23) victory in the Crosstown Classic’s volleyball edition at the OHS gym on Thursday.

The match marked the first time in three seasons that the Lady Chargers have come away with the crosstown victory.

In each of the three games Oxford was able to jump out to a 6-1 lead. (August 19, 2011, Page 9A)

Oxford volleyball goes 1-1 at Tupelo

The Oxford Lady Chargers rebounded from a loss to Class 6A Tupelo with a 2-1 win over Corinth on Friday night in the Tupelo Tri-County Tournament. OHS coach Tara Ross said she has seen her team improve since the start of the season and liked that they came back to defeat Corinth in the second game. The Lady Chargers (2-1) will return to action Tuesday in their home opener against Senatobia. JV action begins at 5:30 p.m. (August 15, 2011, Page 4B)

Prep volleyball set to get going

While the area football teams are braving the blistering heat, the prep volleyball squads are busting their tails in their respective gyms preparing for their season openers. While Oxford opens its season this weekend in Jackson at the Set It Off Challenge, Lafayette and Water Valley begin on Tuesday.

Water Valley will be led by first-year coach Casey Clouse, who admits it could be an interesting first season with the Lady Blue Devils. (August 5, 2011, Page 9A)
