Team Oxford 2004
Team Oxford has been on the scene for a great many years. Headed by long time coach of 14 years Jennifer Lewis and sponsored by Oxford Parks and Recreation the kids travel throughout the summer to various track and field meets. The ages of the athletes vary from the youngest being three years old to the oldest being 16 years old. The kids have alot of fun learning the sport of track and field as well as the opportunity to meet new friends. The older kids that have been with the program throughout the years give back what they have learned by assisting Jennifer in coaching the younger ones.
Coach Rivers says this about Oxford,"It is always a pleasure for the Cheetahs traveling to Oxford every year.The Cheetahs have been traveling to Oxford since 1997 and has always been a fun day for everyone involved. We give each other alot of competition and over the years the kids know each other and look forward to meeting them the next year in competition. The meets are always well ran and organized and I like the fact that no kid leaves the track at the end of the day without something in their hand. Ribbons are awarded to all of the kids and I think that is great!"
