CPHS Volleyball: Sandites win 3-1 thriller at Bixby to finish season 5th in FVC

The Class 6A No. 12 ranked Charles Page High School varsity volleyball team (18-13) traveled to Bixby Tuesday evening for their final match of the regular season. The Sandites won a 3-1 thriller to secure the No. 5 position in the Frontier Valley Conference.

Despite winning three sets to one, the Sandites only scored four more points than their host team overall, and two of the four sets went into extra rallies. Wichita State University-commit Sophie Childs was a perpetual pain in the Sandites’ side, scoring 24 kills with two aces and five blocks.

The Sandites took a 4-0 lead in set one with kills from McKenzie Harris and Madison Burris and an ace from Raylynn Mong. Childs scored back-to-back kills for the Spartans’ first lead at 13-12. The game tied eleven times with five lead changes. Mong took the Sandites’ second lead with an ace at 22-21, Bixby scored two, Devree Youngblood scored an ace at 24-23 and a kill at 26-25, but the final Sandite lead and the match point came on a pair of Spartan errors at 28-26.

Game two was another back and forth affair that saw fourteen tie scores and nine lead changes in the longest set of the season for either team. Thirteen total players scored in the 32-30 Sandite win. Youngblood led all of them with seven points, including the match-point kill, followed by Campfield and Jacelyn Smith with six apiece.

Game three went to the home team who won four-straight rallies to secure the 25-22 victory. Just like the prior two sets, neither team led for long and the set tied fourteen times. Abby Armstrong scored a kill to tie it at 22-22, Skyler Roth served an ace for the lead, and Childs scored back-to-back kills for the win.

The fourth and final set was a mostly Sand Springs-led foray and though the Spartans tied it four times, they didn’t take their first lead till three-straight Sandite errors made it 15-14. Burris took a 16-15 lead with a kill, Baylea Norris killed to make it 17-16, Campfield made it 18-17 with back-to-back kills, then Norris and Hallie Miller made kills for the 19-18 advantage.

It looked like the Spartans would take the match to five sets when they pushed their lead to 22-19, but they committed four consecutive errors to let the Sandites back in the game. Harris and Vanessa Wyrick combined on a block and Harris knocked down a kill for the 25-22 win.

Three Sandites recorded double-doubles and Burris had a triple-double with 10 kills, 14 assists, and 11 digs. Campfield had 14 kills and 10 digs, Mong had a team-high 18 assists and 11 digs, and Youngblood had a team-high 15 kills and a team-high 25 digs.

The Sandites finished the season with a 5-4 conference record for the second-straight year to place fifth out of ten teams. Bixby is currently sixth in the standing with one match left. If they don’t upset No. 8 Jenks on Thursday then they will finish seventh, a drop from fourth last season. Both teams will find out their Regional Playoff assignments Wednesday.

Also 5-2 is Owasso, who the Sandites defeated 5-4 last Tuesday for the tie-breaker win. Securing the district crown was the defending State Champions from Union (10-2, 7-0).

Sand Springs will host Enid (9-6) Tuesday, April 30th, at 7:00 p.m. The quarterfinals will be held Friday, May 3rd on the home field of the winner of Jenks vs. Norman. Semifinals are set for Tuesday, May 7th. The Championship round will be played either May 10th or 11th.

Sand Springs is having a historic season, winning their first nine matches and the Edison Green and White Tournament. They are 6-2 against 6A opponents, have won their last two matches, own four shutouts, and win by an average score of 3-1.

Enid is 7-4 against 6A foes and is coming off a win with an average score of 2-1. Neither team qualified for last year’s playoffs.

The Sandites previously beat the Plainsmen 2-1 in a non-district overtime shootout. Gustavo Saldana made a regulation penalty kick to tie the match and send it to overtime. Then Kaiden Cox, David Fancher, Fernando Saldana, and Gustavo Saldana all made PKs to win the shootout 4-3. Ethan Tippit got the win in the net with three saves.

Fernando Saldana, a sophomore, has been the bread and butter for the Sandite offense this season with fourteen goals. No Sandite but Saldana has scored a hat trick, and Saldana has two. He also has two braces and a four-point performance against Shawnee.

Sand Springs isn’t a one-hit wonder, however. Twelve players have scored and eleven have goals. Senior Gustavo Saldana and sophomore Jack Bratcher both have braces and are tied for second on the team in total scoring.

Cierra Scott signs letter of intent to play collegiate ball for Missouri college

SUBMITTED

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

Charles Page High School senior Cierra Scott signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Central Christian College of the Bible Wednesday morning, making her the thirteenth collegiate player to come from the Class of 2016. 

Sand Springs currently has four football players, four soccer players, one baseball player, and three softball players also headed to college teams this fall. 

Scott was the lone senior on the girls' basketball team this year, and will leave behind some big shoes to fill. The 5'7" guard has put up triple digits all four years of her high school career, and this year was her biggest. 

Averaging 5.67 points per game over her career and 6.23 her senior year, Scott was fifth on her team in scoring this season. She finished the season with a career total of 550 points and a career high of 18 points in a game against Bixby at the beginning of this season. She connected on more than 40% of field goal attempts this season and 54% of free throws. 

The Central Christian Saints belong to the National Christian College Athletic Association and compete in the Midwest Christian College Conference. The Saints finished last season with a 17-11 overall record, but finished the season before 20-8 with a conference championship and were NCCAA Division II National Runners-Up. 

Scott will be pursuing a Bachelor of Religious Studies degree from CCCB while also working on a degree in Business Administration from a partner college.

In Greco Roman Singleton was pinned in 0:42 by Clarke, but defeated Major with back-to-back decisions of 8-3 and 18-12.

In Novice Greco-Roman, Clayton Giddens took first place with a trio of wins over Ethan Peterson of Sapulpa. He pinned his opponent twice, once in 1:08 and once in 1:36, and scored a 4-0 decision for the victory. He also placed first in Freestyle with a pair of pins over Camden Wicson in 1:44 and 1:29.

Bryce Fisher placed first in Novice Freestyle with a pair of pins at 120 pounds. He defeated Jayce Hitt in 0:59 and Luke Burdette in 0:57.

 

Lady Sandite Softball scorches Spartans 18-7 in just three and a half innings

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

The No.14 ranked Charles Page High School slow pitch softball team (7-5) racked up their third-straight run-rule victory at the Haskell Tournament Friday evening, exploding for a 6-0 lead in the first inning against the No.19 Bixby Lady Spartans (5-13). 

Freshman Kimi Presnell scored Kennedy "Goose" Salyers on a home run. Jessica Collins singled to score Sydney Pennington, Stella Millican walked in Kellie Johnson, and Rachel Blair batted in Collins and Madelyn Blair before a single batter was put out.

East Central University signee Sierra Skaggs got the Lady Spartans on the board with a home run, then Lillie Lavendusky doubled in Karlee Doak. Skylor Holmes hit a single to score Cassie Pantalia to cut the gap to 6-3, but Teri Pogue flied out to leave the two runners stranded.

In the top of the second, Northeastern State University signee Jessica Schuler smacked a 3RBI home run to score Salyers and Presnell to make it 9-3.

Sierra Kreiling reached on an error and scored on yet another homer by Skaggs, then Lavendusky singled in two more runners to narrow the deficit to a close 9-7.

Sand Springs opened the floodgates in the third inning as freshman Jacie Taber hit a 3RBI homer, followed by a home run from Salyers, an RBI double by Pennington, and a 2RBI homer from Schuler. 

Mid American Christian University signee Stella Millican (3-3) walked one and gave up two singles in the bottom of the third, but a double play saved the inning to hold the Spartans scoreless. Jacie Taber hit her second home run not just of the game, but of the season, for the 18-7 run-rule victory. 

Sand Springs returns to action Tuesday at 5:00 pm in a home double-header against Barnsdall.

Pennington and Schuler hit home runs in 14-9 loss to No.4 Morris Lady Eagles

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

The No.17 ranked Charles Page High School slow pitch softball team (7-5) dropped the Haskell Tournament opener to 5A No.4 Morris (23-4) in a close 14-9, but swept the rest of the competition aside with ease, needing just twelve innings to defeat three opponents by a combined score of 46-12. 

Morris took the lead right off the bat, outscoring Sand Springs 3-1 in the first inning on runs from Justice Frazier, Kyzia Whisenhunt, and Desirae Tecumseh. Freshman Kimi Presnell drew a walk for the Lady Sandites and scored on a single by Jessica Collins.

In the second inning was more balanced with Frazier hitting a homer for the Eagles and Kellie Johnson scoring a run for Sand Springs. The Lady Sandites tied it up in the third inning on runs from Presnell and Sydney Pennington but Morris scored Maddie James and Lyric Ward for the edge in the fourth.

The Lady Eagles further pushed the advantage with eight runs in the fifth. Sand Springs made a good run at it with Pennington and Schuler hitting back-to-back homers scoring themselves and Presnell. Cameron Clemons scored Collins and Jacie Taber scored Rachel Blair, but they were unable to equalize it and the sixty-minute time limit expired with Sand Springs trailing 14-9. Northeastern State University-signee Jessica Schuler (3-2) got the loss on the mound.

Sandites take second at Wooden Bat Tournament

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

The Charles Page High School varsity baseball team (19-7) made their way to the finals of the Sand Springs/Broken Arrow Wooden Bat Tournament with wins over Sapulpa and Muskogee, and drew first blood against Broken Arrow, but the Tigers (19-8) racked up a 6-1 lead by the bottom of the fourth and held on for the win. 

Josh Cordell (2-2) picked up the loss on the mound, giving up six hits and two walks for six runs and two earned runs. Conner Dennis (1-0) and Brock Youngblood (3-0) each took turns on the mound for one inning each and didn't give up any hits or runs, but were unable to sway the tide of the game in the Sandites' favor. 

Keaton Stamp pitched a no-hitter in the first inning for the Tigers. Brady Bean singled and survived four pickoff attempts before finally being caught stealing by Joey Montgomery to end the inning.

Malachi Walton scored on a Hunter Greathouse sacrifice in the top of the second, but Treyce and Trevor Tolbert both flied out to center field to end the inning with Tyler McCallie stranded on third after a double. 

The bottom of the second is what did the Sandites in. Devon Johnson singled and the bases were loaded as Cordell walked Mack Chambers and Drew Lowe. Kade Goines reached third on an error by McCallie, allowing all three runners to score. Austin Hulet sacrificed to score Goines and the Tigers took a 4-1 lead.

Josh Taber reached on an error in the top of the third but was caught stealing. Bean scored for Broken Arrow in the bottom on a steal of home. The Tigers pitched a no hitter in the top of the fourth, then added to their lead on a Goines sacrifice that scored Chambers. 

Neither team managed a hit in the fifth, through Broken Arrow did strand a walker. Finally, the Sandites began to rally in the top of the sixth with singles from Taber and Rhett Rutledge. Jake Ward was hit by pitch to load the bases and Montgomery scored two on a double. Treyce Tolbert batted in Ward on a fielder's choice that outed Montgomery at third, and McCallie was outed at first on a dropped third strike to end the inning 6-4.

Youngblood pitched a no-hitter in the bottom of the sixth, but Jon Gilton retaliated with a no-hitter in the top of the seventh to secure the victory and the tournament championship. 

Sand Springs will return to action Monday at 6:00 pm at Union (11-9), whom they've already defeated once this season in a close 7-6 thriller at the Bixby Tournament. 

Bixby comes from behind for 8-3 victory over Sandite Baseball

The Charles Page High School varsity baseball team (13-4) met with the Bixby Spartans (13-3) for the fourth time in a week and this time their rival got the win, splitting the series 2-2. During the Bixby Tournament pool play the Spartans won 4-1, but the Sandites spoiled things for the hosts with a 10-6 championship victory the next evening. Monday night the Spartans traveled to Sand Springs for a district game that the home team won 8-7, but when the Sandites traveled to Bixby Tuesday the Spartans exploded in the sixth inning for a come-from-behind 8-3 victory.

Junior University of Oklahoma-commit Jake Terry (4-1) got his first loss on the mound of the season, giving up seven hits, eight walks, and six earned runs with two unearned runs and eight strikeouts. Fellow junior University of Oklahoma-commit Cade Cavalli got the win for the Spartans. As their record indicates, both teams are very close in talent with the Spartans leading the series scoring 25 runs to 22.

Both teams landed a single hit in the first inning and both runners were put out in double plays. Sand Springs did the same in the top of the second, but Bixby got in a run as Cavalli walked and came in on a Matthew Henderson single to strike first blood.

The Sandites weren’t content to play from behind, however, and scored two in the top of the third. Tyler McCallie and Mack Thompson were walked and McCallie scored on a fielding error off a Treyce Tolbert single. Sandite of the Week Rhett Rutledge sacrificed a grounder to short to score Thompson for the 2-1 lead.

Bixby stranded two walks in the bottom of the third but got another go at bat after Cavalli struck out the side in order to top the fourth. This time they landed a single by Jeremy Goodwin and Cole Parker was hit by pitch. Pinch runner Levi Harper scored on an error by Joey Montgomery to tie things up, but Terry struck out the next two batters to end the inning.

McCallie led off with a double to left field for the top of the fifth and scored on a Thompson bunt and error by Goodwin at third. Bixby stranded two in the fifth, pitched a no hitter in the top of the sixth, and finally reclaimed the lead in the bottom of the sixth.

Goodwin singled to right field and was replaced by courtesy runner Kyler Herron. Parker reached on error but was caught stealing second. Braden Hackler reached on a fielder’s choice that failed to put out Herron and instead scored him. Gavin Staton singled to score Hackler, Breydon Daniel walked, then Staton scored on a Tanner Griffin single. Cavalli hit another double to score Daniel and the Sandites sent Josh Cordell (0-1) to the mound. Nic Swanson singled to score Griffin and Cavalli but the next two batters were put out. By the time the frenzy was over the Sandites were in an 8-3 hole.

Griffin went to the mound for the Spartans and pitched a no-hitter to secure the win in the top of the seventh.

The Sandites will return to action Friday at 4:00pm in a home game against Highway 97 rival Sapulpa (1-9), whom they already defeated 7-2 in the second game of the season.

 

Sandites come from behind for 8-7 victory over Spartans, McCallie and Mongtomery hit homers

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

The Sandites (15-3) and Spartans (12-3) went head to head for the third time in under a week in a district match up at Sand Springs Tuesday night. The Charles Page High School baseball team trailed for most of the game, frequently tying it up, but didn't take the lead till the final pitch of the game. 

In the Bixby Tournament Friday night the Spartans defeated the Sandites 4-1 but Sand Springs retaliated with a 10-6 victory for the tournament championship Saturday night to end the Spartans' ten-game win streak. 

In Monday night's home game the Sandites gave up a 2-0 lead to the Spartans in the first and had to fight from bottom for the duration of the game. Jake Ward got the start on the mound and hit the first two batters with the pitch to walk them. Tanner Griffin sacrificed to bring home Gavin Staton and Cade Cavalli sacrificed to score Breydon Daniel before the Sandites fielded a third out.

The Sandites returned the favor in the bottom of the inning as Sandite of the Week Rhett Rutledge reached on a fielder's choice and Hunter Greathouse singled to bring him home. Then, Greathouse came home on a passed ball to even the score.

The second inning was a no-hitter for both teams, but Bixby reclaimed their lead in the third as Staton doubled on an error and came home on a Daniel single. Once more the Sandites weren't content to leave an inning in the hole and Rutledge doubled before coming in on a wild pitch. 

In the top of the fourth AJ Parker and Braden Hackler both singled and Staton walked to load the bases. Daniel struck out but Griffin singled to score Parker for the 4-3 lead. Ward struck out Cavalli and Nic Swanson as well. 

Tyler McCallie hit his first home-run of the season in the bottom of the fourth to tie the game back up but once more the Spartans reclaimed the lead as Jeremy Goodwin stole home in the next inning. This time the Sandites would fail to land a hit and remained in the hole going into the sixth.

Daniel lined out to Rutledge at short to start the sixth and Griffin grounded out to Rutledge. Then, Cade Cavalli went to bat and drew a walk. He survived three pickoff attempts before coming in on a double by Swanson, who in turn came in on a single by Matthew Henderson for a 7-4 lead.

The Sandites had their most impressive inning yet in the bottom of the sixth and Trevor Tolbert singled and came in on a Joey Montgomery home run. Mack Thompson singled and took second on a passed ball. Rutledge and Ward were both hit by pitch to load the bases. Thompson came home on a balk with Greathouse at bat to tie things up 7-7 but Greathouse flied out to right field to strand the runners. 

Brock Youngblood relieved Ward on the mound and pitched a no-hitter and it came down to the bottom of the seventh. Taber was walked, Trevor Tolbert flied out, Montgomery singled, McCallie grounded out, and Thompson walked to load the bases with two outs. Treyce Tolbert came to bat and was walked to score Taber for the win.

The Sandites return to action tomorrow evening, once more at Bixby. 

Sandite of the Week: Rhett Rutledge

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

This week Sandite Pride recognizes Charles Page High School senior Rhett Rutledge as Sandite of the Week for his outstanding performance at the Bixby Tournament this past weekend.

The Sandites (12-3) won their fifth straight in the tournament opener 8-5 against Hilldale (6-9). Rutledge landed the first hit of the game with a triple and came in on the next play with a sacrifice fly from Jake Ward for the first run. He was walked on his next plate appearance and scored once more on a Hunter Greathouse double. He reached first on an error in the bottom of the sixth and scored his third run of the game on a Greathouse single. 

Their sixth straight victory was a come-from-behind extra-inning win over Union. Rutledge landed one hit in the top of the fifth and stole second on a passed ball, but was left stranded. The Sandites won that one 7-6 in eight innings. 

He failed to land a hit in the next two games (a 4-1 loss to Bixby and an 8-0 run-rule shut out of Life Prep Academy), but batted .667 in the finale and won the game on the mound. He struck out one in the first and gave up an unearned double. He grounded out on a sacrifice to score Jake Terry for a 4-0 lead in the top of the second. 

He scooped a grounder to put out a batter at first in the bottom of the second and struck out another for a no-hitter. He sacrificed again to score Treyce Tolbert in the top of the third, but gave up a run in the bottom of the inning. 

He pitched a no-hitter in the fifth, striking out one and putting out another at first on a grounder. He hit a leadoff line drive single in the top of the sixth and was batted in by Josh Taber. By the bottom of the sixth the Spartans were pushing hard for a rally and loaded the bases. Rutledge gave up one single, two runs, one earned run, and two walks before being relieved by Brock Youngblood. The Sandites went on to win the game 10-6 for the tournament championship.
