Meet the Sandites: Zach Sims & Lane Lettich

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

There's 12 days left till the Charles Page varsity wrestling team kicks off the season with a big win over Owasso. This season Sand Springs took runner-up in the Fast Pitch softball State Championship, and is soon to beat the snot out of Bixby for a State Championship in football. Once the hubbub surrounding the gridiron quiets down, it'll be all eyes on the mat as Sand Springs returns one of the greatest squads in school history. Our Minutemen are currently ranked #25 in the nation by flowrestling. 

For the next 12 days, we'll be counting down to the first dual and taking a look at our crowded roster of major talent. 

Zach Sims

  • Senior
  • Weight: 220
  • 2013 Joe Zamora Junior High Champion

With only 1 other wrestler listed at 220 on the current roster, Sims doesn't have a whole lot of competition for the 220 spot, but when that one other wrestler is Delvin Jordan, he'll have to leave it all on the mat every week. 

Lane Lettich

  • Senior
  • Weight: 160
  • 2011 Southern Plains Schoolboy Freestyle Regional Runner-Up
  • 2011 Ark City Invitational 14&Under Runner-Up
  • 2011 Tom Faust Memorial 14&Under Runner-Up
  • 2012 Midwest City Showdown 14&Under Champion
  • 2012 Thunderbird Wrestling Club 14&Under Champion
  • 2012 Southern Plains Cadet Freestyle Regional Runner-Up
  • 2013 USAOK Junior High Folkstyle Champion
  • 2013 Southern Plains Cadet Greco Regional Runner-Up
  • 2013 Southern Plains Cadet Freestyle Regional Runner-Up
  • 2013 Southern Plains Cadet Folkstyle Regional Champion
  • 2013 Titan Games Wrestling High School Folkstyle Champion
  • 2014 Perry Tournament Champion

Lettich is not only our best running back with over 1000 yards this season, he's also one of our best wrestlers. Last year he went 29-13 and qualified for state with a 3rd place finish at Regionals. Last season he bounced back and forth between 160 and 170, though he could go up this season.
