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)

Chargers move to 20-0 with rout of West Point

At this point, Oxford baseball coach Chris Baughman is trying make sure his team isn’t getting bored. Oxford cruised to another win Tuesday at Edwin Moak Field, routing West Point 10-0 in five innings to improve to 5-0 in Division 2-5A play and clinch a playoff berth. The victory also kept the Chargers’ perfect season intact at 20-0. (April 8, 2015, Page 1B, 3B)

Chargers sweep twinbill, remain undefeated

The Oxford High baseball team put its undefeated record on the line in a pair of games against out-of-state competition Monday. The Chargers came away unscathed as they defeated Reavis High School (Illinois) and Collierville High School (Tennessee) at Edwin Moak Field. (April 7, 2015, Page 6)

Stinnett, offense keep Oxford perfect with win over Tupelo

Oxford pounded out 10 hits and got a complete game from Carson Stinnett to improve to 17-0 with an 8-1 win over Tupelo on Saturday at Edwin Moak Field. (April 5, 2015, Page 1B)

Barber hurls another no-hitter in OHS’s lastest win

Jason Barber wasn’t perfect, but he was close enough. Oxford’s junior right-hander overwhelmed Saltillo’s lineup from the start, hurling a no-hitter and helping the Chargers (15-0, 3-0 Division 2-5A) keep their perfect record intact with a 10-0 victory in five innings at Edwin Moak Field on Monday. (March 31, 2015, Page 6)

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)

Oxford begins play in its annual Spring Break Tournament today against South Panola and Lake Cormorant. The Chargers enter coming off two impressive wins Saturday. (March 10, 2014, Page 7)

OHS Chargers changing on the fly

Chris Baughman was thrown a looping curveball recently when senior Parker Adamson announced his decision to skip baseball season to focus on his future as a Southern Miss quarterback.

Adamson really came on as a junior and the Chargers had hoped to pencil the 2012 Oxford EAGLE Football Player of the Year into the middle of the lineup. (more…) (February 21, 2013, Page 10)
