Oxford sweeps WVHS, Saltillo to stay perfect

It was another doubleheader day for the Oxford High baseball team, and as they have been all season, the results were the same. The Chargers defeated Saltillo 13-3 in six innings to cap a sweep of the twinbill after beating Water Valley 8-0 at Edwin Moak Field on Monday.

The Chargers will go for the undefeated regular season tonight against West Point on Senior Night. (April 21, 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)

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

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)
