A salute to a great streak at Oxford

When Kosmo heard a couple of years ago that Oxford was moving from the Flint Metro to the Oakland Activities Association, he was downright thrilled because of all the benefits the move would have for the athletic programs.
It would mean less travel, a chance to establish rivalries with nearby towns and an opportunity to better themselves against better competition.
All that should still prove to be the case, but as Kosmo feared, an unfortunate short-term byproduct of all that became official on Friday night.
Oxford entered this season with a streak of 28 straight winning seasons, second-longest in the state, but that string is over following a 38-14 loss to Rochester Adams that moved the Wildcats to 1-5 on the season.
Oxford still plays hard and is well-coached as usual by Bud Rowley, but there are simply better athletes and better teams in the OAA. Look for the better quality of opponents to make Oxford better soon, but it's just sad a nice streak had to end.
Great job Coach Rowley and everyone else for such a long streak and establishing a tradition of winning not often seen in the county or state.
