Roth baffles Rebs, puts OHS on brink of title

PEARL — Houston Roth missed his spot with his final pitch in Game 2 of the North Half finals last week against New Hope. All Oxford’s right-hander was missing Tuesday was George County’s bats. Roth fired a one-hitter in the opening game of the MHSAA Class 5A championship series, leading the Chargers to a 4-0 win to put them a win away from their first state title in a decade. Game 2 of the best-of-three series is Thursday night at 7. (May 20, 2015, Page 5A)

Timely plays, hit help Oxford nip Center Hill

Oxford got one of its stiffest tests of the season Tuesday night. The Chargers did just enough to pass. Oxford’s offense broke through late after squandering some early chances to back another clean outing from Jason Barber, and the Chargers escaped in their MHSAA Class 5A playoff opener with a 2-0 win over Center Hill at Edwin Moak Field. (April 29, 2015, Page 1B)

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. The win kept Oxford (14-0, 2-0 Division 2-5A) undefeated and gave the Chargers an early leg up in their quest to defend their division championship. (March 29, 2015, Page 2B)

BASEBALL PREVIEW: Talent makes Chargers an easy target

Oxford spent last season hunting the best team in its division. In an ironic twist, the Chargers may very well be the hunted in 2015. There’s an entire outfield to replace as well as some pieces in the infield off a team that went 26-10 and made a run to the Class 5A North Half championship series a season ago, but Oxford isn’t lacking for talent. 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)
