"I'm very proud of the way the boys competed setting two new school records, qualifying for the state meet in 3 events, swimming 8 season-best times, and 10 season-best relay splits. This Thursday, Oxford hosts Farmington, one of the best teams in the State of Michigan, in their last home dual meet. We will also be honoring our seniors after the diving event." - Head Coach Jackie Rank
