CHAMPIONS honors incredible year for local high school sports in Oxford and Lafayette County

What a year it was.

Never before has Lafayette and Oxford dominated in competition in Mississippi like the 2016-2017 school year.

From state championships in football (Lafayette) to tennis (Oxford), our local high schools dominated the state from fall to spring and everything in between.

To commemorate the exemplary performances and to capture the remarkable year that was, The Oxford Eagle is publishing a special CHAMPIONS magazine on Thursday, July 6, 2017.

Celebrating the 2016-2017 champions from Lafayette and Oxford high schools, the special, full-color publication will be presented in The EAGLE and distributed around town to advertising partners. We will also have copies available at the newspaper office at 4 Private Road 2050 (next to Stout’s Carpets and Northeast Electric) beginning Thursday afternoon.

CHAMPIONS recognizes all of our state winners, preserving the year and seasons to be remembered from Lafayette High School and Oxford High School.
