CPHS Softball: Sandites win Choctaw Tournament, beat State Champs 5-1

Photo courtesy Of Becky Tanner.

The Charles Page High School fast pitch softball team (13-7) went undefeated at the Choctaw/Carl Albert tournament this weekend, beating four quality teams to win the tournament title. The Sandites topped Tuttle 5-1, Stillwater 12-2, Choctaw 6-5, and Chickasha 7-3.

The pool play style tournament featured twelve teams playing four or five games apiece with no bracket. In the event of two undefeated teams, the Champion would be decided by run differential, but that tie-breaker wasn’t needed as Sand Springs was the only squad with a perfect weekend.

In the first game of the tournament Sand Springs defeated the defending 4A State Champions from Tuttle (18-2), snapping a sixteen-game win streak by the Tigers. Mackenzie Bechtold (3-1, 7-1) got the win in the circle with two strikeouts, five hits, and no walks. Madi Hicks took the loss with nine hits, two walks, and two strikeouts.

Tuttle was first on the board after Madi Surber hit a single, took third on an error, and came home on a sacrifice fly. That would be their only run of the game, however. The Sandites took the lead in the bottom of the third with two walks and three hits. Aliyah Taff batted in Madison Lee with a single and Jolee McNally scored on an error. McNally brought in Rachel Jones on a sacrifice fly in the fourth and on a single in the sixth, and Jones singled in Avery Tanner.

The Sandites’ next game only lasted four innings as they run-ruled Stillwater (5-10) with eleven hits and seven Pioneer errors. Aliyah Taff (5-4, 9-10) only gave up two hits and one walk with four strikeouts.

Lee, Sabrina Usher, Taff, Horn, and Jones had two runs apiece, and Bechtold and Tanner scored one each. Lee led the offense with three hits and two RBI. Sand Springs took a 7-0 lead in the first inning, added a run in both the second and third, then drove in three more in the fourth for the 12-0 lead before letting the Pioneers on the board.

On Saturday the girls edged out Choctaw (10-6) in a game that saw almost identical performances from the two teams. Both had three errors and two walks, but Choctaw actually outhit the Sandites 7 to 5. The two teams have had a heated rivalry in recent years since the Yellowjackets beat the Sandites 4-3 in the 2015 State Championship game.

Both teams put up three runs apiece in the second inning. Horn and Jones scored on RBI singles from Hawkins and Tanner, and Hawkins scored on an error. The Yellowjackets tied it immediately with three hits, a walk, and an error.

Bechtold got the start at pitcher and threw through the tie before being relieved by Taff in the third inning. Choctaw took the lead on an error but Usher secured the victory with a three-run homer in the fourth.

Taff got the win with two hits and one walk in three innings. Bechtold tossed five hits, one walk, and one strikeout in two innings. Emma Jackson took the loss with five hits, three walks, and three strikeouts.

In the final game of the tournament the Sandites took an early lead and never trailed against Chickasha (13-5) despite committing two errors and giving up five walks.

Usher batted in McNally in the first inning, Lee brought in Tanner in the second, then Usher hit a three-run homer to score Lee and Jaden Jordan. Lee batted in Tanner again in the fourth, then stole home for the final Sandite run.

The Fighting Chicks got on the board in the top of the fifth after a wild pitch sailed into the dugout, giving Analise Eaton time to steal three bases and score. Allyson Arthur scored on a catcher’s error and Alli Bordwine came in on a single from Valerie Ingraham for the final run of the game.

Freshman Nataley Crawford (3-2) got the win with two hits and four walks in four innings. Raegan Rector (0-0, 0-1) made her season debut midway through the fifth with one hit, one walk, and one strikeout.

Sand Springs softball will return to action Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. with a district home game against Ponca City (6-14, 1-6). The Sandites are 5-1 in district action, tied for second place.

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.

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.

NCAA Softball: Sydney Pennington hits home run, father catches it over the fence

Pennington scores in the Regional Championship game her senior season.

Pennington scores in the Regional Championship game her senior season.

You could practice it a thousand times and it would never happen on purpose. But in game one of Oklahoma State softball’s series against the University of Kansas, sophomore standout Sydney Pennington hit a three-run homer over the left field fence, directly into the ungloved hand of her father.

Pennington is a 2017 graduate of Charles Page High School in Sand Springs, Oklahoma. She is seventh on her team in batting average at .292 and second in home runs. She has cleared the stadium nine times this season and sixteen times in her career.

Cowgirl softball fans often park their trucks in the grass just outside the left field fence to watch from their tailgates. In an 8-1 Friday victory, Pennington went yard and the ball found Brett Pennington ready and waiting.

The entire play was caught on camera and can be viewed below.

Brett is no stranger to division one athletics. A two-time undefeated high school wrestling State Champion, he was offered a full ride to wrestle for the Oklahoma Sooners before retiring from the mat due to asthma. He then went to Connor’s State for baseball before finally ending up in the Crimson and Cream from 1995-1996. Now he has added softball outfield experience to his collegiate resume.

The Pokes are 29-11 this season with a 7-2 conference record. They are ranked 16th in the nation and are second in the Big 12. Their only league losses are to No. 10 Texas and Baylor. They will return to action with a three-game series against Iowa State (22-15, 1-5) Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Ames.

Sydney Pennington is one of only five Cowgirls to play all forty games this season. She has 35 hits, 24 runs, 29 RBI, and a .938 fielding average. She was a Big 12 All-Freshman last season, playing left field and shortstop. She has been playing third base this season.
