The Sapulpa Chieftains (23-10-1) upset the host team from Owasso High School (26-8) in the first round of the tournament, but followed the 6-5 victory with a loss to the Sandites.

Sapulpa jumped out to an early lead with a 2RBI home run from Gage Williams and held a 2-0 advantage till the bottom of the fifth. 

Sand Springs loaded the bases with singles from Cal Watkins and Riley Rutledge, and a walk from Braden Askew. Watkins and courtesy runner Garrett McCallie came in on a single from Tyler Ash to tie the game.

Ty Steelman (3-0) took over for Braden Askew (4-3) in the top of the sixth as the Chieftains reclaimed the lead with two hits, a walk, and a pair of sacrifice flies. Cody Rossman and Bennett Henderson batted in Ethan Williams and Kyle Alcorn, respectively, for a 4-2 lead.

The Sandites put the game away in the bottom of the inning with eight hits and six runs to make it 8-4. Cale Savage doubled in Jacob Snodgrass, Watkins singled to score Kameron Adcock, and Rutledge doubled in Steelman for their first lead of the day. Ash batted in Watkins and Rutledge and scored on a single from Kyler Copeland for their final runs of the game.

Evan Casey walked and Gage Williams singled in the top of the seventh and both scored on a double from Ethan Williams, but Savage sent a ground ball to first base to secure the win.

Askew pitched seven hits, two strikeouts, and one walk in the first five innings. Steelman got the win with three hits and two walks in the final two innings. 

Sand Springs will return to action right away with a game against Owasso. The double-elimination tournament will continue Thursday with a rematch of Sand Springs vs Sapulpa.

CPHS Baseball: Sandites throttle Muskogee 15-0 and 7-2 in double-header

Riley Rutledge set the single-game season record for Sand Springs with eleven strikeouts.

Riley Rutledge set the single-game season record for Sand Springs with eleven strikeouts.

After dropping two district games to Jenks earlier this week, the Charles Page High School varsity baseball team (20-8, 6-4) bounced back with a pair of dominant wins against Muskogee High School (3-25, 1-11) Wednesday evening.

The Sandites previously took a 14-0 lead against the Roughers before being rained out in the bottom of the third inning three weeks earlier. They picked up where they left off Wednesday.

Sand Springs loaded the bases right away with two walks and an error. Ty Steelman batted in Riley Rutledge for a 15-0 lead. The rest of the game was uneventful and the Sandites secured the run-rule victory in the fifth inning. 

Braden Askew (4-3, 7-5) got the win on the mound, pitching a no hitter with no walks and six strikeouts in the three innings played in March. Cale Savage (0-0, 1-1) pitched the Wednesday continuation and threw two strikeouts and two walks. 

Game two went the distance and wasn't as much of a blowout as their first meeting, but was still a handy Sand Springs victory at 7-2.

Tyler Ash kicked things off with a first inning double and scored the opening run on a groundout from Cal Watkins. Pryce Jackson tied it up in the top of the fourth with a double to score Devonte Gandy.

The Sandites jumped back out front soon after when Watkins scored on an error and Askew brought in Garrett McCallie on a single.

Sand Springs loaded the bases with a trio of walks in the fifth. Ash singled in Kameron Adcock, Braden Millican scored on a ground ball from Watkins, and McCallie and Ty Steelman scored on errors to make it 7-1.

Max Rosson reached on an error in the top of the seventh and came in on a double from Kaunor Ashley, but Rutledge caught a line drive on the next play to secure the win. 

Rutledge (1-0) pitched the first five innings and threw eleven strikeouts, four hits, and two walks for his first career win. Tyler Ash (2-1) tossed one hit and two strikeouts in relief. 

Sand Springs Baseball will return to action Friday at 7:00 p.m. in a non-district rivalry bout with Sapulpa (18-7). Youth players in uniform will receive free admission to Youth Night and will get to join the varsity squad on the field for the National Anthem.

CPHS Baseball: 14 game win streak comes to an end against Jenks

The Charles Page High School varsity baseball team (18-8, 4-4) won fourteen games in a row before their incredible streak came to a close this week.

Both teams stranded a pair of runners each in the first inning of Monday's game, but the Trojans took the lead in the second as Jack Harding scored Josh Baker on a single. Torre Alavanja and Bryce Osmond scored in the second inning for a 3-0 lead before the Sandites made their way onto the board. 

Tyler Ash was hit by pitch in the bottom of the third, reached third base on an error, and scored on a sacrifice fly from Riley Rutledge, then Braden Askew singled to score Cal Watkins to keep the game close.

The Trojans made a statement in the fourth inning with two doubles and a single for a 5-2 lead, then Baker hit a single to bring in Alavanja and Osmond in the top of the sixth. 

Ty Steelman drew a walk in the seventh inning, took second on an error, and scored on a single from Watkins for the final run of the game. With two runners on base, Chris Spry took over on the mound and pitched three-straight strikeouts to secure the victory.

Tuesday's matchup was far closer and went into extra innings before the Trojans got the walkoff. 

Sand Springs took the initial lead as Rutledge drew a walk in the top of the first, stole second, and scored on a single from Askew. 

Jenks responded in the bottom of the first as Alavanja reached on an error, advanced on a single from Osmond, and scored on a single from Geo Blackshaw. 

The game was mostly uneventful from there till the bottom of the seventh when Jenks loaded the bases with two walks and a single. Watkins made a double play to Kyler Copeland to force extra innings. 

Jenks put it away in the bottom of the eighth with an error, a double, and a walk to load the bases. A strikeout and a force at home gave Sand Springs two outs, but Josh King drew four balls for the victory. 

Osmond, an Oklahoma State University-commit, pitched all eight innings for Jenks, giving up only three hits and one walk, while pitching ten strikeouts. Conner Dennis (3-1, 4-1) took the first loss of his career, throwing four hits, three walks, and four strikeouts. 

Sand Springs will host a doubleheader Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. when they resume a 14-0 third-inning lead in a rain-delayed district game against Muskogee (3-23, 1-9), followed by a full game. Jenks will play Southmoore (7-18, 2-6) Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.

CPHS Baseball: Lucas Adcock Grand Slam wins Sandites 10th straight

Photo Apr 10, 7 23 28 PM.jpg

Sand Springs Baseball is looking hot this season, riding a ten-game win streak under first-year Head Coach James Garrison. 

Lucas Adcock put the exclamation mark on the double-digit streak with a grand slam for a 4-3 district victory in Ponca City (4-18, 1-7). The Charles Page High School varsity squad improved to 14-6 overall and 4-2 in district action. 

The hit came in the first inning and the Sandites rode that lead to the end, fending off a seventh-inning rally attempt by the Wildcats. Cal Watkins and Riley Rutledge hit singles and Cale Savage reached on an error. With two balls, two strikes, and two outs on the board, Adcock went swinging with a trio of foul balls before finally hitting pay dirt over the left field fence.

Eli Wohl singled in Hunter Freeman in the bottom of the third, and the Wildcats threatened with loaded bases before Casey Anderson sent a ground ball to Conner Dennis, who found Kyler Copeland for the out at home to save the inning. 

Ponca loaded the bases again in the bottom of the seventh and nearly pulled off the comeback. Tanner Denton and Po Seals singled in runs for a 4-3 deficit, but Ty Steelman struck out Aaron Hosack to seal the victory. 

Dennis (3-0) got the start and the win on the mound and pitched seven hits, four walks, and two strikeouts before being relieved by Steelman (2-0) at the end of the seventh. Steelman gave up one hit before recording a save with the game-winning strikeout. 

The Sandites will return to action Thursday at 1:00 p.m. in the first round of the Spartan/Tiger Turf War when they take on Muskogee (3-15) at Bixby High School.

Brock Youngblood (2-3, 8-11) pitched six strikeouts against only two hits and one walk in four innings on the mound. 

The Sandites got on the board right away as Tyler Ash scored on a wild pitch and Riley Rutledge scored on an error in the first inning. Kameron Adcock scored on a balk and Ty Steelman stole home in the second inning and Cale Savage brought in Rutledge with a double in the third. 

It looked like the Hornets would finally get on the board in the top of the fourth, but after an error and a pair of singles, Youngblood stranded loaded bases with a pair of strikeouts and the Sandites continued the melee.

Steelman's rabid base running continued in the fourth inning. After hitting a single he stole second, made third on a wild pitch, and scored on an error. Ash reached on an error, Watkins singled, and Malachi Burks walked to load the bases. Ash walked in, Watkins scored on an error, John Miller singled in Burks, Rutledge walked in, then Ash doubled to score Savage and Miller for the final runs of the game.

Sand Springs Baseball will return to action Monday at 5:00 p.m. when the Sandites host Ponca City (4-16, 1-5) in district action. Hilldale will host Salina (9-7) next Thursday at 5:00 p.m.

CPHS Baseball: Sandites run rule Tulsa Memorial 10-1 in five innings

In their best offensive showing of the season thus far, the Charles Page High School varsity baseball team (3-3) rolled to a 10-1 victory over the Tulsa Memorial Chargers (1-4) Saturday afternoon, securing the win via run rule after five innings.

The Sandites recorded eight hits, three sacrifices, and six stolen bases with only one strikeout, while picking up seven walks from the pitching-challenged Chargers, who went through four players on the mound. Conner Dennis (1-0, 2-0) handled the pitching for Sand Springs, throwing five strikeouts while only surrendering one hit.

The visitors wasted no time in taking the lead as Tyler Ash doubled and scored on a sacrifice fly from Cale Savage, who made his season-debut after a State Tournament basketball appearance just two days prior. Cal Watkins drew a walk, then scored on a wild pitch for a 2-0 first inning lead.

The host team scored their only run in the bottom of the first as Trent Wilkerson reached on a fielder's choice, took second on an error, then scored on a single from Zane Carter.

Sand Springs loaded the bases in the top of the third with walks from Savage and Lucas Adcock and a double from Braden Askew. Senior pitcher Matthew Erz walked in Savage for a free run, then Kameron Adcock hit a sacrifice fly to score Askew for the 4-1 lead.

Most of the damage came in the top of the fifth as Askew, Lucas Adcock, Malachi Burks, Watkins, and Savage all hit singles. Errors, wild pitches, and a sacrifice fly from Seth Villines contributed to the melee, and the Chargers had one last shot to make a comeback. 

Erz drew a walk, but Eli Harp flied out and Noah Tow grounded into a double play as Villines made a pass to Watkins at second who found John Miller at first to bring the game to a close.

The Sandites will return to action Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. when they host the Bixby Spartans (4-1). Memorial will take on Skiatook (1-4) in a district home game Monday at 4:30 p.m.

The Charles Page High School varsity baseball team dropped its season-opener Thursday evening, falling 7-5 in a non-district game at Coweta. The Tigers jumped out to an early lead with three runs in the first inning and were 7-1 after four innings before the Sandites made a comeback.

Coweta scored two on the first hit of the game as Seth Marrujo homered in Logan Vaughan. JD Geneva singled and courtesy runner Cash Singleton scored on an error soon after.

Sand Springs got their feet wet in the second inning with doubles from Riley Rutledge and Tyler Ash, the latter scoring the former. 

The home team jumped further out front in the third thanks to a pair of walks, four singles, and an error. Ty Decker, Reed Gaddy, and Jesse McDermott all singled on loaded bases for the 6-1 advantage. Reid Stockman scored the Tigers' final run in the fourth on a sacrifice fly from Geneva.

Ty Steelman got the Sandites back on track in the fifth, singling in Malachi Burks, then scored on a sacrifice by Rutledge. Cal Watkins and Steelman drew walks to start the sixth. Braden Askew doubled in Watkins and Steelman scored on a single from Rutledge for the final runs of the game.

Officer Riley Rutledge got the first hit for the boys and took second on a ground out from the Hulk. Cal Watkins, professional skater, hit a single and a poop emoji hit a 2RBI triple for the lead. The poop scored on a banana single and the inning came to a close as Minnie Mouse put out Guy Fawkes at first.

Adrian Sarasua reached second on an error and made third on a ground out from Felicity Horn in the third inning. An error from the third base lumberjack gave the girls their first run of the evening and Coach Brooke Smart sneaked into the batting order for a game-tying homer over the centerfield fence. A throwing error from the short stop gave the Ladies the one-run lead.

The Sandites brought out the major leagues in former Minnesota Twin Scott Watkins for a home run, followed by yet another homer from a small baby. The softballers made an error on what should have been an easy tag on a slow T-Rex, allowing a sumo wrestler to take the 6-4 lead.

Madison "Bambi" Lee got the girls back on the scoreboard. Aliyah "Netflix" Taff had no chill, reaching first on a fielder's choice, but was left stranded as the girls trailed 6-5 to start the seventh.

After a seventh-inning stretch and Adams-Family performance from the middle school cheerleaders, the baseball team came out to try and further their lead. Godzilla hit a quick pop fly but Napoleon Dynamite got on base with a bunt single and was joined by a sumo wrestler soon after. Both were left stranded, however.

A chicken-suited Jensen Arnold caught a line drive from Rutledge to bring in the Lady Sandites in the bottom of the ninth for one last hurrah. Despite having 34 men on the field, the Sandites still gave up a single. A dropped catch on a hit from Coach Smart tied things up. With the bases loaded and Kimi Presnell at bat, the unicorn hit a line drive to James P. Sullivan on third to force extra innings.

The Hulk hit a two-run homer early in the tenth for the 8-6 lead and the girls got another try to save the game. Bambi hit a sacrifice to score Sarasua and the girls needed just one more run, but they came up short after a fly out from Jacie Taber.

The boys won the Golden Pumpkin for the first time, tying the series 1-1.

CPHS senior pitcher Hunter Greathouse pitched 10 strikeouts in a 5-0 playoff shutout of Jenks. 

The Charles Page High School varsity baseball team (19-20) lost the first game of their Regional Tournament 7-5 to the host team from Jenks (22-13), but battled their way back through the consolation bracket to avenge themselves with a 5-0 shutout behind the pitching of Cowley County Community College-signed senior Hunter Greathouse (4-6). In the third and final game of the series, they were unable to repeat and fell 11-4 to end the season.

CPHS 5 Jenks 0

(Hits: CPHS 8, Jenks 5. Errors: Jenks 2, CPHS 0. LOB: CPHS 6, Jenks 5.)

Jenks came out swinging with a double, but the runner was put out on a double-play as Regan LaPlant bunted to Greathouse, who found Cal Watkins at second. Greathouse struck out the next batter to bring his team in to bat.

Josh Taber got things off to a good start with a single, then took second on a sacrifice by Mack Thompson, and third and home on back-to-back errors.

The Sandites had a big inning in the bottom of the third with a leadoff double by Kyler Copeland, joined on base by Taber who was hit by pitch. Tyler Ash ran courtesy for Copeland and scored on a single from Treyce Tolbert, who scored alongside Taber on a double form Greathouse. 

Greathouse struck out the side in the top of the fourth and the Sandites added one more run in the bottom of the sixth as Garrett McCallie scored on another double from Copeland. 

Greathouse pitched his third 10-strikeout game of the year, and gave up five hits and two walks in the shutout performance. 

Jenks 11 CPHS 4

(Hits: Jenks 12, CPHS 8. Errors: CPHS 2, Jenks 1. LOB: Jenks 8, CPHS 7.)

Following their Friday night victory, the Sandites came out Saturday afternoon in good spirits, but were unable to replicate the prior day's success. 

Brock Youngblood (2-6) got the start and the loss on the mound, giving up a two-run homer to Brett Standlee early in the first inning. Princeton-commit Sy Snedeker hit a single, Tanner Lawrence walked, then courtesy runner Darwin Ornelas scored on a single from Ian Corwin. 

Braden Millican (2-0) took over pitching and gave up a single to Geo Blackshaw that scored courtesy runner Torre Alavanja. Corwin stole home for the 5-0 advantage before the Sandites came in to bat. Tolbert and Greathouse both singled, but were left stranded.

The Trojans loaded the bases in the second inning with two singles and a walk. LaPlant scored on a passed ball, but the Sandites salvaged the rest of the inning with a double play as Snedeker flied out to Taber who made a long pass to Copeland at the plate.

Jenks added their next run in the fifth with a single from Brock Nowlin to bring in Alavanja. The Sandites battled back in the bottom of the inning with a double from Tolbert to score McCallie, a single from Greathouse to score Tolbert, and a home run from Cale Savage to cut the deficit to 7-4. 

Those would be their only runs of the game.

The home team added a run in the sixth, then took advantage of two walks and an error in the seventh to make it 11-4. Trojan pitcher Noah Winkle struck out two in the bottom of the inning to secure the victory.

Four Sandite pitchers saw action in the battle. Youngblood gave up five earned runs, four hits, and one walk. Millican gave up one unearned run, three hits, and one walk in an inning on the mound. Riley Rutledge (0-0) spent the majority of the game on the mound, giving up three earned runs, five hits, and five walks with three strikeouts. Ty Steelman (0-1) finished out the game. 

The Sandites finished the season 19-20 overall, 4-10 in their district, and 3-2 in the playoffs.
