Grae Kessinger

Rallying cry catches on, keeps OHS focused ’til end

When Grae Kessinger fielded Cameron Schultz’s grounder and threw across for the final out, the mission was accomplished. Oxford’s 9-0 pasting of George County on Thursday earned the Chargers the MHSAA Class 5A state championship and finally extinguished the flames of disappointment that had been blazing for a year. Ever since New Hope prevented this from possibly happening for the Chargers last season in the North Half finals, Oxford’s had one job. Now it’s complete. (May 24, 2015, Page 2B)

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)

Fans soak in Oxford baseball’s ‘crazy ride’

It bothered Jason Barber to some extent that Oxford wasn’t able to celebrate in New Hope. After watching the Trojans dog pile on Oxford’s baseball field a year ago after winning the MHSAA Class 5A North Half title, Barber wanted to return the favor at their place. But as the Chargers’ right-handed ace looked around Edwin Moak Field Saturday night after Oxford’s series-clinching win in this year’s rematch and saw hordes of fans sticking around to share the moment, none of that mattered. (May 18, 2015, Page 6)

Oxford pounds New Hope for 5A North Half title

Oxford has its revenge. Now the Chargers want it all. The pair of losses in last year’s MHSAA Class 5A North Half finals simmered in the belly of Oxford players and coaches for nearly 365 days. The division rivals played all season to get back to the same point, but it’ll be the Chargers playing for a state championship this time. Oxford finished off the Trojans with a 10-3 win Saturday at Edwin Moak Field. (May 17, 2015, Page 1B)

Barber pitches, hits Oxford past Germantown

MADISON — Oxford coach Chris Baughman is running out of superlatives to describe what he sees from his ace on a weekly basis. So are his players. Jason Barber did what he normally does on the mound and what he occasionally does at the plate to lead Oxford to its latest win. The Chargers stayed perfect at 30-0 with a 5-0 victory over Germantown in the first game of the teams’ MHSAA Class 5A quarterfinal series at the GHS baseball field Tuesday night. (May 6, 2015, Page 1B)
