Chargers move to 20-0 with rout of West Point

At this point, Oxford baseball coach Chris Baughman is trying make sure his team isn’t getting bored.

The victory also kept the Chargers’ perfect season intact at 20-0. (April 8, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)

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)
