Volleyball season opener between Oxford-Lafayette postponed

Published 3:12 pm Monday, August 6, 2018

The volleyball season was set to begin Monday night for a pair of rivals, but a wardrobe malfunction halted things.

Oxford’s match at Lafayette has been postponed. There is no makeup date set, but sometime this month is the target.

Lafayette ordered replacement jerseys but did not receive them as of Monday afternoon. Without enough old jerseys to dress out a full team the Commodores had to postpone Monday night’s season opener.
