Chargers overcome cold to finish 3-0 in Amory

Chargers hold on to top North Pontotoc

Two postponed dates in the Pontotoc Tournament weren’t enough to deter the Oxford Chargers from earning their second win of the 2013 season Wednesday. The Chargers jumped out to a 3-0 lead on North Pontotoc in the first inning and then broke a 3-3 tie in the top of the seventh en route to a 5-4 win over the Vikings at Pontotoc High.

Baughman: OHS should be fine with new bats

Chargers learn from sweep of Amory

As Chris Baughman found out Monday, there’s nothing wrong with learning a thing or two on your birthday.

Due to poor weather over the weekend, a pair of four-inning jamboree games was rescheduled for Baughman’s birthday at Edwin Moak Field and the Chargers made the doubleheader a learning experience. (more…) (February 21, 2012, Page 8)

Tough loss doesn’t sour summer season

Oxford’s summer season came to a disappointing end on Wednesday.

Looking to make a run in the NEMCABB Tournament hosted at the New Albany Sportsplex, a young Oxford squad was upended by Alcorn Central 8-2.

The loss was a difficult one to swallow, but it won’t be what leaves a lasting impression on coach Chris Baughman. (more…) (June 30, 2011, Page 6)
