    ALL-AREA FOOTBALL: Phillips hits stride to run up record season for Chargers

    Oxford coach Johnny Hill isn’t all that surprised by what his running back was able to do on the football field this season. Not after seeing what he did when he wasn’t necessarily the go-to guy. No tailback in school history has run for more yards than Kenzie Phillips did this fall. In just his second season as a full-time starter, the junior set a record with 1,737 yards. His 29 rushing touchdowns are also a new single-season record, breaking his own mark of 24 set just last season. His performance makes him this year’s EAGLE Player of the Year. Phillips is the third straight Charger to earn the distinction. (December 23, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

        Oxford moves to 11-0 with rout of ‘Dores

        Once Oxford’s boys basketball team stopped thinking and started playing, there wasn’t much Lafayette could do to slow the Chargers down. Oxford turned an early seesaw affair into a rout by turning smothering defense into instant offense in an 80-42 victory over the rival Commodores at the Oxford High gym on Friday night that kept the Chargers unbeaten. Their 11-0 record matches the best start to a season in coach Drew Tyler’s 18-year tenure. Lafayette High’s girls team beat the Lady Chargers 50-47 (December 21, 2014, Page 1B, 2B)

            ALL-AREA VOLLEYBALL: Family, all-around game help serve up POY honor for ‘Dores’ Robinson

            The holiday season is a time to be thankful. For Lafayette High’s Emily Robinson, it is a time for her to be thankful for family because if it was not for a particular family member showing her the sport of volleyball, she probably would not be this year’s EAGLE Player of the Year. (December 17, 2014, Page 1B)

                Oxford routs MA for 10-0 start

                The Oxford boys basketball team used a familiar formula to run its win total to double digits Saturday night. The Chargers turned their pressurized defense into runouts and knocked down shots inside and out in their half-court offense to improve to 10-0 with a 69-40 rout of Marshall Academy in the final game of the “O” Town Showdown at the Oxford High gym. Lafayette lost both of its game in the “O” Town Showdown. (December 14, 2014, Page 4B)

                  Oxford’s girls basketball team had a little easier go of it in its final game of the “O” Town Showdown. After holding off Madison-Ridgeland Academy for a 39-34 win Friday, the Chargers took control early against Marshall Academy and cruised to a 61-33 victory Saturday night at the Oxford High gym. The Lafayette Lady Commodores split their two games in the tournament. (December 14, 2014, Page 4B)

                    Lafayette uses PKs, defense to sweep Oxford

                    Oxford and Lafayette met at Bobby Holcomb on Field Tuesday night, but it was not for a football rematch. This installment of the cross-town rivalry happened on the pitch between the high school boys and girls soccer teams.  In the boys game, it looked as if Oxford would coast to an easy win over Lafayette, leading 3-0 with less than 10 minutes remaining. But Lafayette didn’t fade into the cold night quietly and fired off three quick goals of its own to knot the game at 3, sending it to an overtime shootout. After two rounds of penalty kicks, the Commodores emerged with a 4-3 victory. (December 10, 2014, Page 1B)
