Oak Hill coach leaving position after three years

November 2, 2010

Four years ago, Leroy Gregg was asked to take over the reigns as head coach of the Oak Hill Academy Raiders. For the last three seasons, the 35-year veteran coach has been at the helm of the Raider program, but after Friday night’s season-ending loss to Winston, Gregg announced that he will not return for a fourth season.
“The first week in October, I went to the doctor so I could get some medicine refilled,” Gregg said. “I found out that I’ve sort of let my health slip a little bit. I had some disturbing blood pressure and cholesterol numbers.”

The West Point Green Wave (9-1; 6-0) football team can smell repeat. If they win on the road, at Hernando, this Friday night, they will have repeated one more aspect from the 2009 season.
Last Friday night’s victory over the Clarksdale Wildcats gave the Green Wave the Region I crown. A win at Hernando will give the Green Wave the exact same regular season record as last year.
West Point will be facing a very good Tigers team, which comes into the game with an overall 7-4 record and a 4-2 district mark.

The Oak Hill Academy Lady Raiders (1-0) got to shake off the rust on Monday night, playing the first in a series of three games at the Indianola Tournament.
Surviving some first game jitters in the opening half, the Lady Raiders rallied past Marvel Academy 35-25.
“We were too hyped up early,” said Oak Hill head coach Stan Hughey. “We got to missing shots and lost a little confidence.”
The Lady Raiders were shutout completely in the first quarter, leaving the opening period down 4-0 to Marvel.
