Rallying cry catches on, keeps OHS focused ’til end

When Grae Kessinger fielded Cameron Schultz’s grounder and threw across for the final out, the mission was accomplished. Oxford’s 9-0 pasting of George County on Thursday earned the Chargers the MHSAA Class 5A state championship and finally extinguished the flames of disappointment that had been blazing for a year. Ever since New Hope prevented this from possibly happening for the Chargers last season in the North Half finals, Oxford’s had one job. Now it’s complete. (May 24, 2015, Page 2B)

Roth baffles Rebs, puts OHS on brink of title

PEARL — Houston Roth missed his spot with his final pitch in Game 2 of the North Half finals last week against New Hope. All Oxford’s right-hander was missing Tuesday was George County’s bats. Roth fired a one-hitter in the opening game of the MHSAA Class 5A championship series, leading the Chargers to a 4-0 win to put them a win away from their first state title in a decade. Game 2 of the best-of-three series is Thursday night at 7. (May 20, 2015, Page 5A)

Last loss fuels OHS ahead of North Half rematch

It’s a play that’s embedded in the minds of two different sets of players for vastly different reasons. (May 11, 2015, Page 6)

Barber pitches, hits Oxford past Germantown

MADISON — Oxford coach Chris Baughman is running out of superlatives to describe what he sees from his ace on a weekly basis. So are his players. Jason Barber did what he normally does on the mound and what he occasionally does at the plate to lead Oxford to its latest win. The Chargers stayed perfect at 30-0 with a 5-0 victory over Germantown in the first game of the teams’ MHSAA Class 5A quarterfinal series at the GHS baseball field Tuesday night. (May 6, 2015, Page 1B)

OHS sweeps Mustangs, advances in 5A playoffs

OLIVE BRANCH — Though he’s just a teenager, Grae Kessinger has already made a lot of memories on the baseball field. He might’ve topped them all Thursday night. Oxford’s junior shortstop returned to the place he called home for the first couple of years of his high school career and finished a triple shy of the cycle to help the Chargers finish off a sweep of Center Hill and advance to the quarterfinals of the MHSAA Class 5A playoffs with a 7-1 win at the CHHS baseball field. (May 1, 2015, Page 1B)

Oxford shifts focus from record to ‘ultimate goal’

Oxford’s baseball team won all 27 of its regular-season games. But the Chargers want that number to grow to 35 before it’s all said and done. Sure, last week’s throttling of West Point in the regular-season finale was a big deal. It marked the first time in school history the Chargers (27-0) were able to run the table before the postseason started. (April 27, 2015, Page 7)

Oxford routs West Point to cap spotless regular season

 Never has a season for Oxford’s baseball team been so perfect. The Chargers overwhelmed yet another opponent Tuesday night at Edwin Moak Field to put a bow on the first undefeated regular season in school history with a 16-0 win over West Point. It was the 27th shot an opponent had at Oxford, but it ended in a 27th victory for the Chargers. (April 22, 2015, Page 1B)
