Oxford QB Abraham verbally commits to Tulane

It was a reward for the school as much as it was for himself. Oxford quarterback Jack Abraham has thrown for 7,000 yards and 72 touchdowns the last two seasons in the second-largest classification of Mississippi high school football. But the rising senior’s small stature at 5-foot-11 doesn’t have power conference schools believing he can play the position effectively at the next level. (April 26, 2015, Page 1B)

    LHS cruises to playoff sweep of Yazoo City

    Lafayette’s offense was slow to get going. It didn’t matter much the way Eli Murphree and Mack Bishop were throwing. The Commodores’ top two pitchers dealt from the start as the offense worked to find its rhythm late, and Lafayette swept Yazoo City out of the Class 4A playoffs Tuesday at W.V. Brewer Field. Lafayette won the first game of a doubleheader, 11-1, in five innings before taking the nightcap, 8-1. (April 24, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)

         Never has a season for Oxford’s baseball team been so perfect.

            OHS’s latest powerlifiting title ‘a special thing’

            Oxford’s lifters and coach had a good idea even before the final count was tallied. Six lifters helped the Chargers pile up 28 points in the morning session of Saturday’s MHSAA Class 5A powerlifting meet in Jackson. With four more lifters still to take their turn in the afternoon, it was going to be difficult for anybody to stop Oxford’s chase for another title (April 20, 2015, Page 6)

                Oxford’s Barber putting up season full of zeros

                How good has Jason Barber been this season? Oxford’s junior right-hander struck out six and fired a two-hitter in a five-inning win against West Point on April 7, and it was what Chargers coach Chris Baughman called Barber’s worst outing of the season. “He’s been phenomenal all year long,” Baughman said. Oxford’s ace has also been nearly unhittable. (April 19, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)

                    Oxford powerlifters aiming for three-peat at state meet

                    Oxford’s boys powerlifting team has some pieces missing from its recent state championship teams, but the Chargers are counting on their depth and experience to deliver yet another MHSAA Class 5A title. The Chargers will try to win their third straight state crown Saturday in Jackson and have the numbers to make them the favorite. Ten lifters qualified for the state meet at North Half last month, the most of any 5A team and the same number Oxford carried to Jackson last season. (April 17, 2015, Page 1B)
