The last time the Oak Hill Academy Raiders won in their opening week was in 2006, a 19-0 win over Lamar.
Six years and a number of head coaches later, and the Raiders 1-0 once again.
More important to the Raiders, Friday night’s 13-6 non-conference win over Newton County Academy put them back in the win column for the first time since 2010. The Raiders did not win a game in 2011.
For head coach Daniel Merchant, this makes him 1-0 as a skipper.

“This team deserves it,” Merchant said. “They have worked hard everyday in practice.”

It seems that over the last 12 months or so, at least four new businesses have opened up along East Main Street, making the demand for parking on Main Street much higher than it was two or three years ago.
With more businesses downtown comes more customers, and with limited parking on Main Street, where are customers to go?
