The Oxford High School spring sports teams were introduced at Meet the Teams on Tuesday, March 22.
Held at the Ian Smith Gymnasium, each of the 18 teams and nearly 300 athletes taking part in nine sports this spring introduced themselves to the Oxford community. The event had addresses from Oxford Community Schools Superintendent Ken Weaver and OHS Athletic Director Tony DeMare, the OHS choir singing the national anthem and an impromptu standing ovation for Nov. 30 survivor and OHS tennis player Kylie Ossege.

One response to “Spring sports Meet the Teams’”

  1. Has the Oxford High School stadium been renamed after Tate Myre yet? Tate may be gone but he will never be forgotten. He was a HERO just like Justin Shilling was ANGEL for Keegan Gregory? I am a grandfather from Ashburn, VA in Northern VA and have a 15+ year old grandson in Heritage High School in Leesburg. OHS was traumatized forever and I pray for Oxford’s recovery.
