Hunter Roth

Chargers wrap up second place in 2-5A

Oxford’s 4-3 loss to West Point on Wednesday evening would have cost them them the No. 2 seed in the Class 5A playoffs, however Saltillo’s loss to New Hope on Wednesday allowed the Chargers to secure the No. 2 seed due to two wins over the Tigers during the Division 2-5A season.

The Chargers finished the year 4-5 in the division and enter the playoffs with a 15-10 mark overall. Oxford used four pitchers in the loss to the Green Wave but coach Chris Baughman has Steven Whitfield and Hunter Roth available to start the team’s best-of-three series against Yazoo City. (April 19, 2012, Page 6)

OHS earns division win over West Point

Oxford sophomore pitcher Hunter Roth didn’t realize just how important Friday night’s 5-1 win over West Point really was until after the game.

Sure, Roth knew it improved the Chargers’ record within Division 2-5A play, but the significance didn’t really hit him, or the other members of the team, until after OHS coach Chris Baughman got through talking with them. (April 9, 2012, Page 8)

Lear hits, pitches Oxford past LHS

It seems like a safe bet that Oxford senior James Lear will remember the last two days of March 2012 when he reflects on his high school career in a few years. One night after earning a save in Oxford’s 5-4 win over Saltillo, Lear led the Chargers to a 10-8 win over cross-town rival Lafayette at W.V. Brewer Field on Saturday afternoon.

Chargers rally to defeat Wildcats

Oxford concluded its annual Spring Break Tournament at Edwin Moak Field on Thursday with a 3-2 win over Independence that showed the Chargers’ ability to pitch, defend and score runs in an efficient manner.

Even though the Chargers (7-5 overall) fell behind the Wildcats 2-0, there was never any panic, never any despair shown in the dugout that a comeback wasn’t going to be made. (March 16, 2012, Page 6A)

Eagles outlast Oxford in tourney opener

Oxford’s first game of its annual Spring Break Tournament at Edwin Moak field came down to a couple swings of the bat Monday. Unfortunately for the Chargers, it was Jackson (Tenn.) Christian that ended up getting the best swings as the Eagles topped OHS 5-3.

Jackson Christian’s Matt Poteete hit a two-run home run in the top of the seventh inning to break the 3-3 tie and catapult the Eagles to a win in the tournament that continues through Thursday.

Potette’s home run was one of three in the game for the Eagles, who also had success in going deep in the game leading up to their meeting with the Chargers. Brad Sills, Jackson’s designated hitter and No. 7 hitter in the lineup, also had two solo home runs in the contest. His first came in the fourth inning and put the first run on the scoreboard, while his solo shot in the sixth gave the Eagles a 3-1 lead. (March 13, 2012, Page 6)

Whitfield nearly whitewashes OBHS

The final fly ball had barely completed its arc and began descending back to earth before Steven Whitfield began jumping up and down. (more…) (February 28, 2012, Page 9)

Baughman: OHS should be fine with new bats

The way Oxford head coach Chris Baughman looks at it, this may have been the perfect year for high school teams to implement the new BBCOR bats that college players swung last year.

The bats high schools used last year allowed for more pop when ball met bat. (more…) (February 23, 2012, Page 7)

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)
