CPHS Softball: Sandites in a slump, lose five on the road


After starting the season on a ten game win streak, the Class 6A No. 10 ranked Charles Page High School slow pitch softball team (10-5) has fallen into a bit of a slump and lost their last five games.

4/8/19 CPHS 12 Tahlequah Sequoyah 11

The Lady Sandites edged out the fall fast-pitch State Champions from 5A No. 9 Tahlequah Sequoyah (13-10) by a single run Monday morning at the Jenks Festival. They took a 6-2 lead in the bottom of the first, but the Lady Indians scored four runs in the top of the sixth for the one-run lead.

Sand Springs outhit Sequoyah 19 to 16 with five extra-base hits. Sabrina Usher hit two home runs and a double and Raegan Rector tripled. Usher scored two runs and four RBI in the close win. Her first homer tied it at 2-2 in the bottom of the first and her second secured the walkoff victory.

4/8/19 Jenks 12 CPHS 1

Sand Springs suffered their first loss Monday afternoon against No. 16 Jenks (14-15), who they previously run-ruled 11-1 in the Haskell Tournament finals just three days prior.

Makenna Skaggs brought in Rector on a single in the top of the first, but the Trojans tallied six in the second inning to take the lead once and for all. The Sandites managed a season-low six hits, stranded six runners, and lost by run-rule after the top of the fifth. The Trojans intentionally walked leading-slugger Usher twice.

Next to avenge their prior loss was the Lady Indians from Sequoyah High School. Just like their prior day’s meeting, the game was decided by a single run Tuesday morning at the Broken Arrow festival.

Sand Springs scattered four singles for three runs in the top of the first, but stranded loaded bases in the second and the Trojans took the 5-3 lead with six hits in the bottom of the inning.

Skaggs reclaimed the advantage with a two-run triple in the fifth, then Sequoyah took it right back with an RBI single and an error for the final run of the game.

Madison Lee was a perfect three-for-three at the plate. Felicity Horn scored a team-high three runs, while Skaggs scored a team-high three RBI.

4/9/19 BAHS 7 CPHS 3

Perennial powerhouse No. 4 Broken Arrow (17-7) stumped the Sandites in three games over three days. On Tuesday morning they rallied from a 3-1 deficit with a four-run fourth inning. The Sandites actually outhit the Tigers eleven to ten but stranded eight.

The Tigers tallied four runs in the first inning, five in the second, and five in the third, dominating the game from the very beginning for a five-inning run-rule victory. They totaled fifteen hits to the Sandites’ eight, including seven home runs. Freshman standout Kyleigh Lamont went yard three times for the Tigers, including a grand slam.

Skaggs had a career day, going three-for-three at the plate with two doubles and a triple, scoring two runs and an RBI. She wasn’t done yet.

Skaggs’s hot streak continued into game two of the double-header, scoring a run and three RBI with a homer. It wasn’t enough, however. The Broken Arrow bats blasted five more out of the park and totaled sixteen hits, while Sand Springs only managed seven in the four-inning game. Rachael Jones also went yard for Sand Springs.

Elizabeth Luttrell pitched all six games this week and is 7-5 on the season.
