The Oxford Academy baseball team captured the CIF-SS Division 7 Championship with a 5-4 win over South El Monte High on Friday at Lake Elsinore Diamond, home of the Lake Elsinore Storm minor league baseball team. Oxford Academy was the No. 2 team out of the 605 League and was not among the top 10 teams in the final division rankings at the end of the regular season. But the Patriots made the most of their opportunity, knocking off several ranked teams along the way. They opened the playoffs with a 7-1 win over No. 2 Western Christian. They rolled over No. 7 Jurupa Valley, 13-1 in the quarterfinals and Desert Christian, 15-5 in the semifinals.
