Not Your Average Ole Miss Baseball Fans


By: Alexa Bafalis and Mary Houston Matthews

Usually the Ole Miss students section at Swayze Field dominates the Ole Miss fan base. Today the fans were a little different. Oxford elementary, middle and other surrounding county schools took over the responsibility as committed Rebel fans.

The young students took a day off from their school work to enjoy the sunshine and Ole Miss baseball taking on Southeastern Louisiana.

School officials used the game as an incentive for students.

“Its a reward for the students to get out of class for a day and get to do something fun,” says Oxford Middle School Choir Director Jordan Caviezel.

Not only was the field trip fun for the students but also a learning experience.

“We’ve brought out the kindergartners from Lafayette and we’ve been talking about shapes, so we’re going to incorporate some of the things we’ve seen out here at the baseball game with our shapes,” says Connie McCluskey, Lafayette Elementary kindergarten teacher.

The youngsters were not shy about showing their spirit for the Rebels — their Hotty Toddy cheer may pose some competition for fellow Ole Miss student fans.

Ole Miss won 6-2.
