Though it's still early in the season, the Oxford High School boys and girls cross country teams celebrated "senior night" Tuesday because it marked the second and final home meet of the season for both teams.
Coach Ed Lucas and underclassmen honored the seniors and their parents/guardians for their years of dedication to the Oxford program.
Congrats to seniors and best of luck!
