Roth’s gem, Bianco’s hit lead OHS past Trojans again

BASEBALL PREVIEW: Talent makes Chargers an easy target

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)
