This week Sandite Pride would like to recognize CPHS junior Sydney Pennington as Sandite of the Week for her outstanding sportsmanship and incredible performance at this past weekend's tournament.

Pennington has led all scorers for the last two seasons, has led her team in four games this season, and averages just under thirteen points per game this season.

She scored 10 last Tuesday against Bishop Kelley, then scored 36 over three games at Coffeyville's Interstate Classic tournament, including a season-high 22 in the championship win over Life Prep Academy. 

Pennington was named to the All Tournament Team along with Gloria Mutiri, and was voted the tournament's Most Inspirational Player.

In addition to being one of the best ballers in recent memory, Pennington was also one of the top sluggers on the school's State Runner-Up fast pitch softball team and is an Oklahoma State University softball commit.
