Two of Oxford High’s most decorated track athletes will be leading two of the most successful programs at OHS in the coming year. Chris Patton and Chris Bush were both approved by the school board Monday to lead the cross country and boys track programs respectively. Patton, who has been an assistant to former OHS coach Scott Kendricks since 2008, will assist Bush on the track and continue to work with sprinters and jumpers as he has in the past. Bush will assist Patton with the cross country teams.
