Terry Johnson

Oxford’s Terry Johnson wins state lifting crown

A strong finish in deadlift helped Oxford’s Terry Johnson cap a successful powerlifting career with an individual state championship on Saturday in the MHSAA’s Class 5A meet. Johnson clearly out-distanced his competition at this year’s meet by totaling 1,525 pounds, 240 pounds more than the second-place finisher, Pearl’s Chris Burleson.

For Johnson, who competed in the 308-pound weight class, the accomplishment made all the hard work worth it. (April 19, 2011, Page 4B)

Wave crash Oxford’s 5A playoff hopes

One of the most successful seasons on the gridiron the past few seasons for the Oxford Chargers ended with a disappointing 27-12 loss to the West Point Green Wave in the second round of the Class 5A playoffs Friday night at Bobby Holcomb Field.

A good, physical gameplan helped lifted the Green Wave (11-1 overall) into the 5A North Half title game. (November 22, 2010, Page 6B)

OHS bounces back to trounce Wildcats

The Oxford Chargers got the bad taste of losing to New Hope out of their mouths Friday night with a 37-13 win over Clarksdale at Bobby Holcomb Field. The win improved the Chargers to 4-2 overall and an even more important 1-1 in Region 1-5A.

OHS coach Johnny Hill felt his Chargers played “pretty well” against the Wildcats (3-3, 1-1). (October 4, 2010, Page 4B)
