OXFORD — In one of the most dominating showings in recent memory, Oxford won 12 of 18 events Wednesday and ran away with the boys championship in the Calhoun County Track and Field Championships at the Choccolocco Park track.

The Yellow Jackets scored 244 points, more than double the output of their closest challenger (Ohatchee 96), in winning for the fourth year in a row.

The Alexandria girls were equally as impressive. The Lady Cubs won their championship — for the third year in a row — with 178 points.

Oxford’s Javon Glenn won three individual events (200, 400, 100 hurdles) and ran a leg on one of the Jackets’ two winning relay teams (4×100). Noah George won both distance races (1600, 3200) and ran the anchor leg on their other winning relay (4×800), and basketball high flyer Justin Moore (high jump and long jump) won two.

Jacksonville’s Emun Young also was a double winner, taking the shot and discus.

On the girls side, Alexandria and White Plains each won five events and Ohatchee won three.

Alexandria’s Karlee Walker won three individual events (100, 200, 400) and White Plains’ Anna Strickland (800, 1600) and Saks’ Sa’Nya Fleming (long jump, triple jump) each won two.

Oxford’s Noah George leads the pack in the 1,600. He won both distance races and anchored the Yellow Jackets’ winning 4×800 relay. When Oxford clinched its fourth straight track title, he became a county champion for the second time this week, adding to the soccer crown he helped the Jackets win Saturday. (Photo by Dana George)
