CPHS Volleyball: Sandites remain undefeated at home, beat Booker T. Washington 3-1

IMG_9656.JPG

The Class 6A No. 12 ranked Charles Page High School varsity volleyball team (13-8, 4-2) won its tenth home game of the season Tuesday evening against No. 17 Booker T. Washington (8-12, 1-5) to remain undefeated in the Ed Dubie Field House. Sand Springs won 3-1 in a Frontier Valley Conference match-up with sets of 25-23, 22-25, 27-25, and 25-14.

It looked like Sand Springs would run away with the first set on two different occasions, but both times the Hornets came buzzing back. Cloe Campfield and Jacelyn Smith scored kills and Campfield added an ace for a 4-1 lead that the visitors quickly negated. Then Campfield and Vanessa Wyrick scored kills in a five-point run and Wyrick combined on a block with McKenzie Harris to make it 12-7 before the Hornets rattled off five of their own to tie it again. The set tied ten times and the Hornets led by as much as 15-13, but their last advantage came at 18-17. Sand Springs held their visitors at bay in a close exchange for a 25-23 win, capped by Madison Burris’s first kill of the night. 

Game two was total Hornet domination right out of the gate, but ended in a valiant comeback attempt. Wyrick and Raylynn Mong combined on a block to start the set, then Wyrick and Campfield blocked to tie it at 3-3, but things quickly unraveled from there. Tia Gripado served three aces in a five-point run before Burris broke it up with a kill, then Ruby Vance added two more aces. Emma Pappas aced for a 16-7 lead, Burris recorded another kill, then Leia Turner and Senna Stephens hit kills for a ten-point lead. 

A Gripado kill made it 22-12 for the visitors, and most teams would have given up by that point. But Sand Springs won ten of the next thirteen rallies and only lost 25-22. Burris scored two kills, Mong scored one, and Campfield aced before Makenzie Johns killed to make it 24-17. The home team went on a five-point run from there with kills from Wyrick and Devree Youngblood and an ace from Madison Blaylock before Gripado secured the victory. 

Set three started the way of the second, with the visitors storming out to a 12-3 advantage with aces from Vance, Gripado, and Bridget Johnson. The Sandites had to play from the hole till Burris tied it at 18-18 after a 10-2 run by the home team. Burris gave her team their first lead at 20-19 with an ace, Taryn McIntosh put the visitors back up 23-21, then the two teams exchanged errors till a Campfield kill and a Hornet error ended the 27-25 Sandite victory.

Set four was a breeze for the Sandites, who jumped out to a 4-0 lead with kills from Wyrick and Youngblood and an ace from Mong. They went on a seven-point run for a 20-9 lead and led by as much as 23-10 before the Hornets won four of the final six against the Sandite second string.

Burris recorded her fourth double-double of the season with 11 kills and 13 assists, both team-highs. Youngblood and Campfield led the Sandites in digs with 21 apiece. Gripado was the top-scorer for the Hornets with 13 kills and four aces, while Vance had a match-high six aces.

Sand Springs will return to action Saturday at the Mustang Tournament against No. 6 Mustang (16-3), No. 16 Choctaw (8-5), and No. 20 Enid (7-9). The Hornets will host 5A No. 8 Bishop Kelley (10-7) Thursday at 7:00 p.m.

CPHS Volleyball: Sandites win inaugural tournament, 2-0 over Booker T. Washington

IMG_3487.JPG

The Charles Page High School varsity volleyball team (8-6) won its first tournament in nearly a decade Saturday afternoon, and they did it on their home court. The Inaugural Sandite Invitational marked the first time the Sandites have hosted their own tournament since 2014.

Sand Springs defeated McLain, Will Rogers, Tecumseh, Bishop Kelley Junior Varsity, and Booker T. Washington to secure the title.

In a preseason Q&A first-year Head Coach Derek Jackson said he wanted to see his girls defend the home court, and thus far on the season they are undefeated 8-0 in the Ed Dubie Field House.

The Sandites swept their first four opponents 2-0 but needed three sets to down Booker T. Washington (6-4) in the semifinals. The Hornets then defeated Tecumseh (7-5) in the loser’s bracket to earn a rematch for the title, and Sand Springs swatted the Hornets down with relative ease in their second meeting.

Oklahoma Baptist University-commit Devree Youngblood scored a team-high seven kills with three aces. Vanessa Wyrick and Raylynn Mong also scored three aces apiece, and Mong tied with Madison Burris for a team-high eight assists each.

The first set was fairly competitive early on, till Sand Springs went on a six-point run for a 15-6 lead that the Hornets never recovered from. Trailing 20-9, Washington tried to rally against the Sandite second string, but ultimately McKenzie Harris secured the 25-16 victory with a kill.

Game two wasn’t even close. After a rocky start and 4-1 deficit, the home team pulled together an eight-point run with three aces from Wyrick and three kills from Youngblood. Washington got as close as 10-8, then Sand Springs won nine more rallies in a row and ended the day on a five point run at 25-11.

The Sandites won twelve of thirteen sets in the tournament and outscored their opponents 313-184.

Sand Springs will return to action Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in Bartlesville (0-4) in Frontier Valley Conference play. The Hornets will play a home conference match against Sapulpa (4-3) at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday. The Hornets and Sandites will get a rematch September 17th in their conference battle.

CPHS Volleyball: Sandites headed to tournament finals with 2-1 win over Booker T. Washington

IMG_3374.JPG

The Charles Page High School varsity volleyball team (7-6) earned their first winning record of the season and punched their ticket to the Sandite Invitational finals with a 2-1 victory over Booker T. Washington (5-3) Saturday afternoon at the Ed Dubie Field House.

Sand Springs won the first and third sets 26-24 and 15-7. They are on a six-match winning streak, and won twelve-straight sets before falling 25-22 to the Hornets in game two.

Oklahoma Baptist University-commit Devree Youngblood led all scorers with ten kills in the best-of-three match. Raylynn Mong had a team-high sixteen assists and three aces.

Washington went on a six point run for an early 9-5 lead thanks to powerful hitting from Andrea Hernandez and Makenzie Johns. Sand Springs played from the hole for the majority of the set, but tied it at 11-11 with a block from Youngblood and Vanessa Wyrick, and at 22-22 on an error. 

Mong recorded nine assists in the game, with four going to Madison Burris and four to Youngblood. Burris paced the team, but Youngblood came up clutch at the end of the set, scoring three of her kills in the final six rallies. Youngblood gave her team the 23-22 lead, Lexa Turner tied it, Youngblood responded, Tia Gripado tied it, then Youngblood scored once again. Finally, Wyrick served an ace to secure the victory..

The second set went much the same as the first, with Washington taking an early lead and Sand Springs staging a late rally. This time, however, the Hornets held strong. A four-point run with a kill and an ace from Sydney Thompson gave Washington the lead from 11-8 till 20-20 when the Sandites went on a five-point run with three kills from Youngblood. The visitors won five of the final seven rallies and Gripado hit the game winner. 

Game three was a whole different story, with Sand Springs taking a commanding 5-0 lead right out of the gate thanks to three-straight aces from Mong. Emma Pappas aced to cap a three-point run for Washington, then the Sandites rattled off four more. Gripado and Hernandez tried to keep their team alive, but a 6-1 run sealed their fate after back-to-back kills from Jacelyn Smith. 

The Sandites will play the winner of Booker T. Washington vs. Tecumseh (7-4) for the tournament title at approximately 3:00 p.m. They previously beat Tecumseh 2-0 (25-22, 25-15) in pool play. If the winner of the loser’s bracket beats the undefeated Sandites, a tie-breaker round will be played.

CPHS Boys' Soccer falls 2-1 to Booker T. Washington in PK shootout

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

The Charles Page High School Boys' Soccer Team (3-4 overall, 0-1 district) traveled to Booker T. Washington High School (4-1, 1-0) for their first district match of the season Tuesday night and played their longest game of the year thus far. The battle went into double-overtime with a lightning delay and eventually ended in a shootout.

The first half saw heavy defense with each team only getting off four shots apiece. All four of the Hornets' shots went wide or high, but Ignacio Garcia was just a tad off, connecting with the top post. Logan Jeffus scored the lone goal of the half with six minutes remaining.

The second half was an offensive melee by the home team, out-shooting the Sandites ten to one. Fortunately for Sand Springs, only four were on goal and only one went in. Grant King tied the game in the 59th minute of regulation. 

The Sandites didn't get off a single shot in either overtime period, but they played outstanding defense, giving up only two shots to King that were well off goal. Following a thirty-minute lightning delay, the second overtime period went the way of the first. Damola Olaniran took the lone shot from forty yards deep, but goalie Edgar Soberano handily pulled in the save.

With the score still tied, the game went to penalty kicks. Dax Hayes, Max Pettit, King, and Alan Velasquez made their shots for the Hornets, but Jaden Weiser, Garcia, Logan Jeffus, and Gustavo Saldana made four for the Sandites to force a sudden-victory shootout.

Olaniran, Henry Allen, and Tim James made the first three goals for Washington, while Alex Hernandez and Kristian Fairchild sank the first two for Sand Springs. Gabe Jeffus's shot was saved, however, and the Hornets notched their first district win.

The Sandites will return to action Friday night in Enid (1-4) for a non-district match at 8:00 p.m.

By now just about everyone has heard of "The Play 2pt.0." The famous two-point conversion scramble utilized by Hunter Greathouse and Josh Taber to win a 26-25 upset at the Indian Bowl over previously undefeated No. 1 Muskogee. The ESPN SportsCenter Number One Play of the Day has seen national attention and received more than 13,000 views on the Sandite Pride Facebook page.

The play was very similar to a touchdown score by the Sandites in last year's State Championship loss to Bixby. That year Taber's big brother Jacob picked off a Tanner Griffin pass and pitched a lateral to Cruz Desjarlais for the score. This year it was Greathouse who received his own pass after it was batted fifteen feet up into the air. The QB scrambled and dropped back to his right to look for an option, then made the pitch to Taber as he was closed in on by a trio of Rougher defenders. Taber broke a pair of tackles and dove for the endzone like an arctic fox for the win.

While the end play received the headlines, the whole game, and the fourth quarter in particular, were marked by incredible Sandite athleticism and numerous outstanding plays. 

Greathouse was 16 of 32 for 221 yards and 3 touchdowns with only 1 interception, marking the first time this season the Sandites have relied on the pass game for more than 60% of their total offense. That's not to say the infamous Sandite run game wasn't still prevalent as junior Payton Scott finished his seventh straight game with 100+ yards. 

While the offense was salty as always and ultimately won the game with their quick thinking and adaptive play-making, it was made possible due to what was possibly the most exceptional performance of the season by the defense. The Sandites were coming off a high from the previous week when the defense scored the first two Sandite touchdowns of the game against Ponca City, both on forced fumbles and recoveries for big returns. They also had two interceptions.

The Sand Springs defense has been notorious on the ground for some time, but struggled both last season and this year when it comes to aerial assaults. Last year they were able to shut down the run game from both Bixby and Booker T, but were dominated by Bartlesville's air raid. That struggle carried over into this year as they gave up an upset to Choctaw and allowed Ponca to rack up more yardage and points than the Wildcats have managed all season. 

When the Sandites lost co-defensive coordinator Robert Borgstadt to Sapulpa and graduated the majority of their State Runner-Up starters, the future of the Sand Springs defense was in question. It didn't take long for the team to prove they still had what it takes, however. The unit has been steadily improving all season and made a huge statement against Muskogee.

Booker T. also graduated a lot of players from last year's team that split with the Sandites. Starting QB Dakaria Willis graduated, but newcomer Philip Wheatley has been an improvement in the air, throwing 122-202-1222-3 with eight touchdowns this season. The Hornet aerial game will be a huge obstacle for the Sandites as Wheatley has already completed as many passes this season as Willis even attempted. 

The Hornets are a whole different beast from last season when they ran 44% of their offense through now-Oklahoma State freshman running back Justice Hill. Last season a mere 27% of Booker T's yards came through the air, as opposed to 52% this season. Wheatley isn't quite the double threat that Willis was, but he still is third in his team on the ground with 26 carries for 129 yards and a touchdown. Rylan McQuarters and Tyler Holmes split the bulk of the running with over 700 yards between them and five touchdowns each. Six running backs have scored this season as well as six receivers, meaning the Sandites won't be able to focus their coverage on any single player.

Booker T's defense is equally stout, bringing in seven interceptions for two touchdowns this season, plus six fumble recoveries. They've also racked up 29 sacks this season. 

Here's how the two teams matched up against their three mutual opponents.

The pick from Sandite Pride is Sand Springs 29-24. The Hornets will likely get a few interceptions, but the Sandites haven't given up a pick-six this season and I don't expect that to change. I would be surprised if the lead doesn't get exchanged a few times. Booker T. will likely find most of their offense in the air, and if they don't limit their turnovers they'll be hard pressed to overcome Sand Springs's phenomenal defense.

On paper, the Sandites have the better offense and the Hornets have the better defense, but in actual application we'll likely see it go the other way. The Hornets aren't as disciplined as the Sandites and will likely give up a lot of penalties and turnovers that the Sand Springs defense will more than capitalize on.

While Booker T. and Muskogee were nearly perfectly matched offensively, the Roughers had the decisive win thanks to turnovers. If both Sand Springs and Booker T. play the same way against each other that they did against Muskogee, Sand Springs will win. There is a lot of parity between the two, however, and when it comes down to the field anything can happen. If stats on a page won games, then Muskogee would have dominated the Sandites. Sand Springs has always had a fourth quarter magic, however. Sand Springs has the home field advantage, but the number one ranking often puts a monkey on your back. 

No matter who wins, it's likely to be every bit as exciting as last week's game against Muskogee, and it should be a packed house, especially with it being Senior Night. The Church That Matters tailgate crew will be hosting their weekly fundraiser for the athletics department before the game and will be selling hot dogs, burgers, and chicken sandwiches with chips and a drink, so come early and come hungry!
