Meghan Tait, class of 2008 and Kimberly Vaugan Stout, class of 1996 will be two of the six honored guests at the 13th annual Oxford Area High School Sports Wall of Fame Banquet on Monday, Oct. 14.

She was MVP in field hockey and was selected second team all Chesmont, awarded first team all Ches-Mont in basketball and again MVP at Oxford. After playing softball for three years she was again selected second team all Ches-Mont.
