Great day for Oxford

Around the fine town of Oxford, there are probably few things better than beating border town rival Lake Orion in a sport.
Unless it's beating Lake Orion in a state playoff game in two different sports within minutes of each other.
That was the case on Tuesday, as the Wildcats baseball and softball teams recorded mild upsets of the Dragons in pre-district action at Rochester Adams.
Both came in dramatic fashion as well, making the wins even better. Billy Kammerer hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the seventh in the baseball game, while Kelly Cartner's RBI single in the seventh gave the softball team the win.
Starting in the Fall, Oxford will move from the Flint Metro conference to the Oakland Activities Association, meaning there should be even more battles with Lake Orion. Of course, the first football game in over two decades between the two schools in August will get a lot of the attention. Football and basketball will be the true barometer of whether Oxford can compete in the OAA in athletics.
But given what happened on Tuesday, it's clear the Wildcats can compete with Lake Orion and the rest of the OAA in other sports, especially baseball and softball.

They should PROBABLY relish in that day for a while, because they'll "PROBABLY" have a running clock on them come week 1 of football season. Just a hunch.
