The high school baseball playoffs may be more than a month away from starting, but you wouldn’t have known that was the case from the atmosphere displayed Thursday night at Edwin Moak Field. (more…) (March 18, 2011, Page 6A)
Oxford coach Chris Baughman had a big smile on his face following his team’s game with Senatobia at Edwin Moak Field on Thursday afternoon.
Sure he was glad that he and his staff were that much closer to concluding the four-day Spring Break Tournament, but the main reason was because of the success the Chargers had at the plate in an 11-1 win over the Warriors and the continued success of the team as they headed into the start of division play, which begins Tuesday at New Hope.

Spring break has never been about beach trips and time off for the Oxford High baseball team and coaching staff.
Despite a seven-run fourth inning, the Oxford High baseball team was unable to overcome a fast start by Olive Branch in a 15-10 loss Tuesday night. The Chargers (1-2) got to within a run of the Conquistadors at 3-2 in the top of the third, but they fell behind by 10 runs after Olive Branch scored nine in the bottom half of the frame. OHS was within 12-10 heading into the bottom of the fifth, but was unable to score the rest of the way as Olive Branch tacked on three more runs. (more…) (March 2, 2011, Page 7)
Oxford’s baseball team rebounded from a 13-1 loss to Northwest Rankin Saturday to post a come-from-behind win over Ridgeland. The Chargers’ 5-4 win was aided by several players, including Hunt Halford, who earned the win on the mound in relief of starter Zac Barber. Henry Webb had two hits and an RBI, while William Elliott also had two hits, including a double in the victory. (more…) (February 28, 2011, Page 8)
Oxford’s baseball season may not have gone as hoped, but the Chargers made the most of their divisional finale, routing West Point 14-2 in five innings on Thursday. (April 23, 2010, Page 6A)
There were a few moments after Oxford scored five runs in the bottom of the second inning in Tuesday’s District 2-5A home game with New Hope that Chargers’ coach Bradley Roberson said he felt good about his team’s chances the rest of the way.
“I knew that these guys were going to come out and compete tonight. When we were up 5-3, I had a good feeling about the game to be honest,” Roberson said. “But again, I knew even though it was 5-3, (New Hope) had barreled up some balls early themselves. I knew we needed to try and get some more (runs) if we were going to win the ballgame.”
Unfortunately for Roberson and his team, his intuition proved to be right as the Trojans exploded offensively, scoring four runs in three different innings after the third en route to an eventual 16-5 win. (April 14, 2010, Page 3B)
Oxford coach Bradley Roberson reached a significant milestone Thursday night with the Chargers’ 17-4 win over Independence. Roberson’s 100th win as OHS coach came in a game that also put the Chargers back above .500 (10-9 overall) and gave them another dose of confidence going into tonight’s Division 2-5A game with West Point at Edwin Moak Field.
