Roth’s gem, Bianco’s hit lead OHS past Trojans again

Oxford’s baseball team is right where it wants to be. The Chargers finished off a week-long sweep of New Hope with a 3-1 victory Friday at Ole Miss’ Oxford-University Stadium.

With three verbal commitments to the Southeastern Conference school in its backyard and a handful of junior college signees on the roster, it’s no secret Oxford will be one of the state’s top teams once again. (February 27, 2015, Page 7)
