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)
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.

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)
