It takes a young team time to learn and Oxford Prep Athletic Director John Hammett hopes the school volleyball team’s challenging schedule to open the season will do exactly that. Oxford Prep opened with two losses against Wake Prep and East Wake. Both schools field strong volleyball programs. Those losses were followed by two close wins against Kerr Vance Academy.
Conference play opened with a loss against Roxboro community this week. “We hope the schedule will pay dividends later,” Hammett said of his young team on Thursday’s SportsTalk. “We just have to play through it,” Hammett continued.
On the soccer field Oxford Prep won against Kerr Vance Academy last week but lost to Granville Central. Hammett is also optimistic about the soccer program. “Our numbers are up,” Hammett stated. “We are taking small steps building our program,” Hammett added.
