He was recruited out of high school by the University of North Carolina, then transferred to the University of Oklahoma. He took a medical redshirt at OU then spent at year at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M. He placed 8th at the NJCAA National Championships in his lone season at NEO.

Oklahoma Schoolboys place 2nd in Freestyle Nationals, 3rd in Greco-Roman, girls 7th

IMG_9832.jpg

A handful of wrestlers with Sand Springs ties competed on the Oklahoma Schoolboy Wrestling teams recently in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Oklahoma had enough quality athletes to send two full rosters to the USA Wrestling National Dual Tournament.

The Oklahoma Blue team made it to the Freestyle finals for the first time since 2006, falling 39-33 to Pennsylvania. Oklahoma Red placed 14th out of 39 teams from 29 states.

Oklahoma Red took third place in Greco-Roman action while Oklahoma Blue placed eighth, marking the first time both teams have qualified for the Gold/Silver Pool. 28 states sent 38 teams to the tournament.

Mason Harris went 7-1 in the heavyweight slot for the Oklahoma Blue Freestyle team with one pin, two technical falls, three decisions, and one forfeit. He defeated Minnesota State Champion Elias Ruiz 10-0, Washington State Champion Daniel Matagi 10-0, and Pennsylvania State Champion Dominick Curci 5-0. Harris was 2-5 for the Red Greco team, beating Wisconsin State Champion Griffin Empey 12-4.

Keystone Kids Grady Mittasch, Cameron White, and Abraham Flores competed on the Oklahoma Red Freestyle team and the Blue Greco team.

Mittasch went 4-1 at 87 pounds in Freestyle with three tech falls and a decision. He defeated Utah State Champion Brayden Robison 10-0, and Indiana State Champion Jake Hockaday 20-9. Mittasch was 2-3 in Greco. He pinned Hockaday and defeated Kansas State Champion Dillon Cooper 14-3.

White went 5-4 at 114 and 119 pounds in Freestyle with a pin, a tech fall, a decision, and a forfeit. He defeated Wisconsin State Champion Royce Nilo 8-6, Florida State Champion Kamdon Harrison 12-7, and pinned Virginia State Champion Elijah Blevins. White was 3-5 in Greco.

Pennsylvania has historically been a powerhouse at the Schoolboy level, but has dropped off in recent years. This was their first finals appearance in Freestyle since 2014 and in Greco since 2015. They won their fifth Freestyle title in nine finals appearances, and their sixth Greco title in nine appearances. This was their third time to sweep both styles in the same year.

Tulsa hosted the inaugural Schoolgirl Freestyle Duals and seven states competed. Wisconsin went 6-0 for the title. Oklahoma went 1-5 for 7th place in a tournament with lots of parity and circular losses. They tied Runner-Up Illinois 26-26 and only lost on criteria, then beat 5th Place finisher Minnesota 35-21.

Oklahoma Junior Dual Team wins Freestyle National Championship, Forbes goes 6-2

IMG_3163.jpg

One Sandite and one former Sandite recently competed on the Oklahoma Junior Dual teams in both Freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling. The Greco-Roman team placed fourth at the National Tournament, while the Freestyle Team won the National Title for the first time since 2015.

Christian Forbes will be a sophomore at Charles Page High School this coming year. Carter Young won State as a freshman at Sand Springs before transferring to Stillwater last season. Both are internationally-competitive athletes. In 2016 the two traveled to Medelin, Columbia to compete in the Pan-American Championship. Forbes took silver in both styles, while Young won gold in Freestyle and silver in Greco.

At this week’s Freestyle Dual tournament Forbes went 6-2 at 100 pounds, beating Arkansas State Champion Tristan Stafford 5-4, Ohio’s Zach Bellissimo 10-0, New Jersey’s John Hildebrandt 11-0, and Ohio State Champion Marlon Yarbrough 10-0. He also received two forfeits. His only losses were to Jore Volk and Daniel Sheen, who both went undefeated,

Young went undefeated 6-0 at 126 in Freestyle, beating two-time Arkansas State Champion Jacob Adams 12-0, New Jersey’s Nicholas Digiacomo 10-0, Ohio State Champion Jimmy Carmany 10-0, Minnesota State Champion Jake Svihel 14-3, and Illinois’s Brody Norman 10-0. He also received an injury forfeit from Ohio’s Camron Lacure.

Oklahoma made it to the Championship round for the first time since winning back-to-back titles in 2014 and 2015. It was their fourth finals appearance of the past ten years. Illinois made it to the finals for the eighth time in the past decade. The Land of Lincoln won four-straight titles at the start of the decade, but has come up short four times since then, twice to Oklahoma.

The Okies beat Illinois 32-31, marking the second straight year that the finals have been decided by a single point. Oklahoma beat the defending Champions from Ohio and the returning Runners-Up from Minnesota en route to the Championship round.

Illinois had more fortune in Greco-Roman, where they won their third-straight title and eighth title since 2009. The dynastic program has only failed to make the finals once in the past eleven years in Greco-Roman. Oklahoma settled for fourth place after coming in Runner-Up last year.

Forbes went 4-0 in the 100-pound slot with one forfeit. He scored an 11-6 decision over Missouri’s Cael Keck and teched Yarbrough 10-0. His most notable win was a 5-2 decision over Iowa’s Brandon O’Brien, a 2016 Cadet Pan-American Champion.

Young went 1-1 in the 126-pound slot, which he shared with TJ Long. He defeated Nebraska’s Dyson Kunz 10-1, but fell 8-4 to Missouri’s Eli Rocha.

Daton Fix punches ticket to Kazakhstan with Senior World Team

IMG_3346.jpg

Oklahoma State University redshirt sophomore and Charles Page High School alumnus Daton Fix is no stranger to international competition, and in September he’ll get to add one more country to his resume.

The four-time undefeated high school State Champion is coming off an impressive freshman campaign in which he won the Big 12 Championship and came in runner-up at the NCAA Tournament.

Last week he won a best-of-three series with Thomas Gilman to secure his spot on the Senior Freestyle World Team for the first time. Gilman is a Big Ten Champion from the University of Iowa and the defending World Team member with a 2017 Silver medal under his belt. He bested Fix 6-3 and 2-1 at the 2018 Final X.

Fix beat Gilman 8-4 at the U.S. Open in April to qualify for Final X. Gilman won the World Team Trials Challenge Tournament in May to earn a Final X rematch.

The first match was a landslide for Fix as he majored Gilman 9-1, but the Hawkeye came back with a 3-2 win in the second round. Fix scored a takedown with 24 seconds left in match three for a 6-3 win.

The Senior World Championship will be held September 14-22 in Nur-Sultan, the capital city of Kazakhstan.

IMG_9178.jpg

Charles Page High School Class of 2019 graduate Aden Baughman recently competed at the 44th Annual Great Southwest Track and Field Classic in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Air Force Academy-bound Sandite took second place in the 800-meter run with a time of 1:57.76.

Baughman was a two-time State Champion for Sand Springs with twenty first-place finishes in his high school track and field career and an 800-meter personal best of 1:53.16.

At the Southwest Classic Baughman took second place behind fellow Oklahoman Jack Vincent, a Claremore High School junior and fellow State Champion, who only won by 0.3 seconds.

The Oklahoma men took eighth place out of 15 states with a score of 44 points. Missouri won the event with 187.5 points and Texas was runner-up at 131.

Sand Springs wrestling club places second at OKUSA State Championship

Every great high school wrestling team depends on a solid feeder program to recruit kids, teach them the fundamentals, and keep them practiced and prepared for the day they’re old enough to try and crack the varsity lineup.

There are approximately ninety clubs registered with Oklahoma USA Wrestling. These clubs not only serve as the backbone for the 151 high school teams in the state, but they also develop the All-Americans, World Team members, and Olympians of the future.

For four months a year students participate in Folkstyle, the purely American style that high schools and colleges compete in. The rest of the year is dedicated to Freestyle and Greco-Roman, the two Olympic styles that the international community wrestles.

Sand Springs has had raging success in recent years with their Team Big wrestling club. The Sandites have crowned State, National, Pan-American, and World Champions in multiple age groups. They are frequently among the top-scoring teams in Oklahoma competitions.

In 2019 Team Big decided to rebrand under its original name from the 1980s – the Keystone Kids. The club features two former NCAA All-American coaches in Jarrod Patterson and TeDon Fleischman, as well as Chris Forbes, Kyle Waag, and a large community of volunteers with extensive wrestling experience.

The Keystone Kids placed second overall at the OKUSA Freestyle/Greco State Tournament last month with 348.5 team points, right behind Broken Arrow’s J4 Wrestling Club with 356. They placed first in Bantam Greco-Roman.

Christian Forbes, Grady Mittasch, Mason Harris, and Carter Young won Freestyle State titles, while Elijah Pagonis, Matthew Moore, and Abraham Flores won Greco-Roman titles. Gavin Wallace was the only Keystone Kid to win State in both styles, outscoring his opponents 58-0.

The next competition opportunity for the Keystone Kids is the Southern Plains Regional tournament coming up this weekend in Mulvane, Kansas.

MHaynesSBC.png

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Small College Basketball announced its 2019 National Hall of Fame Class in Kansas City, Mo. this past weekend. Naismith Hall of Famer and Langston University Alumni Marques Haynes was selected for inclusion in this year's class.

Haynes attended the now-defunct Booker T. Washington High School in Sand Springs, helping his team to Oklahoma Black High School Class B State Championships in 1940 and 1941, and a Negro League National Championship in 1941. The section of Highway 97 that runs through Sand Springs is named in his honor.

With an initial $25-church scholarship Marques Haynes enrolled at Langston University. He was an athlete-student there from 1942-46. During that time the team went 112-3, including a 59-game winning streak. He was named the Langston MVP and a Southwestern Athletic All-Conference member all four years , leading the team to Historic Black Colleges & University (HBCU) National Championships in 1944 and 1946.

In 1946 his Langston team upset the Harlem Globetrotters. Haynes would gain international acclaim as a member of the Globetrotters and as an ambassador of the game. Considered to have been among the game's greatest ball handlers, he was inducted into the NAIA Hall of Fame in 1985, the Sand Springs Education Foundation Hall of Fame in 1990, the Jim Thorpe Hall of Fame in 1993, the Langston University Hall of Fame in 1995, the Naismith Hall of Fame in 1998, and the Oklahoma Hall of Fame in 2011. Observers claimed that Haynes was able to dribble a ball three times in a second and control the ball just an inch or two off the floor.

"We are very excited to welcome the Class of 2019 into our Small College Basketball National Hall of Fame," said SCB founder John McCarthy. "This is a tremendously accomplished and impressive class, and I am very thankful to our Hall of Fame Committee, as they have spent a great deal of time researching and analyzing many, many potential candidates for this prestigious induction. Congratulations to every member of this special class."

CPHS Soccer: Season ends in 2-0 quarterfinal loss to nationally-ranked No. 2 Jenks

IMG_8141.JPG

The Charles Page High School Boys Soccer Team (13-3) fell short in their quarterfinal playoff match at nationally-ranked No. 2 Jenks High School (17-0) Friday night by a final score of 2-0.

Jenks got on the board five minutes in when University of Tulsa-commit Will Edwards collected a loose ball and got a shot off that skipped past Sandite keeper Ethan Tippit and rolled just inside the far post.

Jenks dominated possession for the majority of the first half and started to piece things together with about eight minutes left in the half. A shot from Luke Jeffus nearly resulted in a goal as the Jenks goalie struggled to handle it, and a Kaiden Cox free kick was tipped just enough to send it off the crossbar.

The second half featured more of the same with Sand Springs dominating possession to start and earning a multitude of corner kicks, but they were unable to find pay dirt.

The Trojans put the game out of reach at the 10:39 mark when Tippit found himself off his line and was forced to bat a ball away outside the box, resulting in a yellow card. Backup goalkeeper Xander Quiroga was able to stop the shot from the impending free kick, but the ricochet fell to the feet of Edwards who laid it off to Eric Quiroz for the final goal.

Jenks went on to notch a 1-0 victory against Westmoore (11-7) in the semifinals and will play the defending State Champions from No. 12 Union (13-2) Saturday at 7:00 p.m. at the University of Tulsa. Both teams are in pursuit of their sixth State title, and the Trojans are looking for their first since 2006.

The Sandites wrapped up a historic season, starting the year on a ten-game win streak with an Edison Green and White Tournament title. They went 5-2 in district action to earn a home playoff game, and beat Enid 1-0 in the first round.

Sand Springs will graduate eleven seniors Saturday, including Santiago Martines, Tippit, Josh Pardue, Cox, Aaron McKnight, Dawson Quinton, Gustavo Saldana, Weslee Calhoun, Kaleb Brooks, Gustavo Franco, and Braden Hart. The Class of 2019 accounted for 18% of the team’s scoring power this season.

Saldana ended his varsity career with seven goals and four penalty kicks. Cox scored two goals and a PK. McKnight and Calhoun had two goals apiece while Quinton, Brooks, and Franco had one goal each.

Sophomore standout Fernando Saldana was the leading scorer on the team this season with fourteen goals and four PKs, including two hat tricks. Next up was Gustavo Saldana with five goals and two PKs, and Jack Bratcher with seven goals.

CPHS Baseball: Sandites end season with 22-11 record, six headed to college programs

IMG_8595.JPG

The Charles Page High School baseball team finished their season Thursday afternoon in Owasso as the host Rams (34-5) won their eleventh shutout of the season and fifth-straight Regional Championship.

Owasso went 3-0 in the playoff, outscoring their opponents 19-0 for their 33rd Regional title. They scored runs in each of the first four innings and held on for a 7-0 victory. Sand Springs was held to a season-low two hits, and committed a season-high seven errors.

Jaxon Skaggs (3-2) got the start and the loss on the mound, throwing seven hits, three strikeouts, and three walks in four innings. Sebastian Cassity (4-3) threw one strikeout, no walks, and no hits in one inning of relief. Kiefer Massey (1-0) finished the game with one strikeout, no walks, and no hits in two innings.

The Sandites ended the season with an identical win-percentage to last year, going 22-11 overall, and improved from 7-5 to 8-4 in district action. Second-year Head Coach James Garrison is now 46-23 at Sand Springs and 60-42 in his career.

Offensively they averaged 5.88 runs per game, a slight dip from last season, but only allowed 3.39 runs per game, their lowest since 2012. Their 2.49 average margin of victory is also their best since 2012.

The 8-4 district record and 8-2 home record were the team’s best since 2015. They notched six shutout wins for the third-straight year, and suffered only two shutouts for the second straight year. Their longest win streak was six-straight, and they never lost more than two games in a row. Every team the Sandites lost to ended the season with a winning record.

Seminole State College-signee Cal Watkins led the Sandite offense in most statistical categories, including: batting average (.400), slugging average (.514), runs (27), hits (42), singles (30), doubles (11), RBI (29), and stolen bases (26). He also went 1-1 on the mound and recorded two saves.

Jacob Snodgrass led the team with two triples, and was one of only two players to hit a home run. Cale Savage hit a team-high two homers and was in on 23 double plays. Ethan Sartin had the best on-base percentage on the team at .469.

The Sandite bullpen was thirteen-deep this year, but only seven players logged ten innings or more. Ben Banker was the workhorse, throwing nearly fifty innings for a 6-2 record, 1.87 ERA, 1.56 WHIP, and a team-high 39 strikeouts.

John Miller (2-1) was right behind Banker with 32 strikeouts in only 26 innings. He also recorded two saves on the season. Massey had the team-best ERA at 0.70 and WHIP at 1.30, but only threw ten innings this year. Seth Villines (4-0) had the best overall record, and the best ERA (1.69) and WHIP (1.31) among pitchers who threw more than ten innings.

Six Sandites have signed letters of intent to continue their careers at the collegiate level. Tyler Ash, John Miller, and Banker are headed to Eastern Oklahoma State College. Kyler Copeland will play for College of the Ozarks, and Cale Savage will play at Northern Oklahoma College at Enid.

CPHS Baseball: Sandites beat Union 4-2 in extra innings at Regional Tournament

Ben Banker (8).jpg

The Charles Page High School varsity baseball team (22-10) defeated Union 4-2 in a ten-inning Regional playoff game Wednesday afternoon in Owasso, but suffered their first shutout of the season at the hands of the host team. The Rams (33-5) beat the Sandites 5-0, but Sand Springs can still advance to the State Tournament if they can upset Owasso twice on Thursday.

The defending State Champions from Union (11-23) were eliminated after falling 7-0 to the Rams, who improved to ten shutouts on the season with their fourteenth-straight win.

Owasso can clench their fifth straight Regional title and 33rd overall with a win on Thursday. They are ranked 42nd in the nation by PerfectGame and won their 13th State Championship in 2015.

The Sandites will have to beat Owasso in back-to-back games Thursday if they want to make it to the State Tournament for the first time since 2011. The uphill battle will kick off at 3:00 p.m. If they win the first game, they’ll play again at 5:00.

CPHS 4 Union 2

The Sandites led for four innings against Union after taking a 2-0 lead in the top of the second. Northern Oklahoma College-commit Cale Savage hit his second home run of the season to kick off the inning, then Keaton Campbell brought in Malachi Burks on an RBI single.

Seth Villines (4-0, 5-0) got the start on the mound and threw two hits, four strikeouts, and four walks in five innings. After giving up a homer to Trent Desmet in the bottom of the sixth, he was replaced by Cal Watkins (1-1). Watkins threw two hits and a walk, giving up the game-tying RBI double to JD Geneva, and was replaced by John Miller (2-1, 7-2).

Miller hit a single in the seventh but was stranded, then struck out two to send the game into extra innings. Miller ended the game with four strikeouts, no walks, and only one hit, and was relieved by Preston Berg (0-1) late in the eighth. Berg tossed four balls and was replaced by Brycen Peterman (1-1). Peterman finished out the night and earned his first career win with two hits, two strikeouts, and one walk.

Sand Springs finally got back out front in the tenth inning, spurred by a lead-off double from Villines. Burks and Kaegan Murray were hit by pitch to load the bases. Villines was walked in and Burks scored on a passed ball for the final score of 4-2.

Owasso 5 CPHS 0

Eastern Oklahoma State College-signee David Sandlin (5-0) threw eleven strikeouts against the Sandites, the most of any pitcher this season. He gave up only four hits and one walk, giving Sand Springs their first shutout in the past 35 games.

Ben Banker (6-2, 7-2) got the start and the loss on the mound, throwing five hits, four strikeouts, and four walks. Jaxon Skaggs (3-1) pitched the final third of the fifth inning, then Michael Miller took over for the remainder of the night. Miller threw two hits, two strikeouts, and two walks in two innings.

Sand Springs stranded two runners in the first and Owasso stranded two in the second. The Rams got on the board with an RBI double from Jack Hammond in the third and Sandlin struck out the side that inning.

Brody Green singled and scored on an error in the fourth. Connor Beichler walked in the fifth, then Cameron Thompson and Nathan Ackenhausen hit back-to-back doubles to make it 3-0. The Sandites stranded two more hits in the fifth. Hammond hit an RBI single and Ackenhausen brought him in on a double in the seventh.

CPHS Soccer: Sandites edge Enid 1-0 in playoffs

IMG_8213.JPG

The Charles Page High School boys’ soccer team (13-2) won their first-round playoff game against Enid (9-7) Wednesday night at Veterans Memorial Stadium. The match was their third-straight win and fifth shut out of the season.

A rematch of a non-district 2-1 Sandite overtime win from mid-March, the game was chippy from the very beginning with the Plainsmen earning four yellow cards over the course of the night. Marcos Arambula and David Garcia received one yellow card apiece, and Miguel Garcia received his second in the 62nd minute, leaving his team one man short.

Gustavo Saldana split the uprights 27 minutes in and Fernando Saldana had a shot saved in the 30th. With eight minutes left in the half Angel Esparza took a corner kick and the Plainsmen were called for a handball in the box. Fernando Saldana sank the penalty kick for the only point of the night.

Luke Jeffus took a penalty kick with two minutes left in the half, but Angel Neri made the save. Kaleb Brooks got off a pair of shots in the final two minutes, sending one just over the top of the goal, and one into Neri’s arms.

Jack Bratcher made a pair of quick drives downfield early in the second half, but was beat to the kick by Neri the first time, and was fouled by David Garcia the second time. Gustavo Saldana took a direct free kick from the 18-yard line but split the uprights.

Sandite goalie Ethan Tippit had several impressive saves in the second half. Neri also stopped shots from Gustavo Saldana and Kaiden Cox.

In the final thirty seconds Ivan Delgadillo sent a shot a hair wide, Brayan Rodriguez sent a corner kick to Fernando Marrufo, and Marrufo’s header missed right as time expired.

The Sandites will return to action Friday at 8:00 p.m. when they travel to nationally-ranked No. 3 Jenks (15-0-1). The Trojans recorded their tenth shutout of the season and fifth-straight shutout with an overtime golden goal penalty kick, 1-0 against Norman (11-4).

CPHS Track: Mitchell Mefford places second at John Jacobs Invitational

The Charles Page High School track and field teams recently competed at the University of Oklahoma’s John Jacobs Invitational. A loaded field with more than thirty schools caused the team scores to suffer, but several Sandites set personal records.

The boys placed 22nd out of 35 teams while the girls tied for last. Only top-six finishers earn team points, and only Mitchell Mefford accomplished the feat. Mefford placed second in discus with a personal-best distance of 150’05”.

Riley Magee set a personal record distance of 39’07” in shot put. Caleb James ran PRs of 11:15.49 in the 3200 and 5:21.67 in the 1600. Danny Murray also PRed in the 1600 in 4:59.50. Dalton Wilcox and Sam Smith ran PRs of 2:23.55 and 2:23.84, respectively, in the 800.

Daren Hawkins and Justis Meyers PRed in the 200 with times of 25.90 and 27.97. All three 100-meter runners set PRs. Morgan Lockhart finished in 11.73, Meyers in 12.74, and Hawkins in 12.78.

Joselyn Shinnerer and Kristen Fields set PRs in the 100-meter dash with times of 15.39 and 15.75, respectively. Erika Baker and Chezney Kelley set PRs in the 1600 run with times of 6:23.78 and 6:52.94, respectively.
