After a kill from Devree Youngblood at 15-13 the Bulldogs went on a seven-point streak with three kills from Keltner that the Sandites never recovered from. The visitors won four of the final six rallies, but couldn’t quite tie it and Smith attacked the 25-23 game-winner.

Sand Springs stormed back in the fourth set to tie the match. Raena Marrick was first on the board, but the visitors won the next six rallies, capped by back-to-back aces from Youngblood. The Sandites took their biggest lead at 16-7 before the Bulldogs tried to stage a comeback. Katie Gleason aced to cut it to 21-19, but the visitors won four of the final five rallies with an ace from Wyrick and a kill from Youngblood.

The home team jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the final game and never gave it up, finishing on a five-rally streak for the 15-6 victory.

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 Volleyball: Sandites sweep Bishop Kelley JV 2-0 in home tournament

Sand Springs is on a roll and back to a .500 record after picking up their fifth-straight win Saturday morning in the gold bracket of the Sandite Invitational. The Charles Page High School varsity volleyball team (6-6) won a 2-0 sweep against the Bishop Kelley Junior Varsity team with sets of 25-21 and 25-19 to remain undefeated on their home court.

Don’t let the JV tag fool you, the Bishop Kelley Red team is no slouch. The girls finished second in their pool on Friday and are the backups to a defending State Championship team.

Cloe Campfield led all scorers with six kills and three aces in the two-set match, followed by Vanessa Wyrick with five kills and two aces. Six Sandites combined for twelve aces in the match.

Sand Springs trailed only twice in the first set, riding a six-point run to a 9-4 lead and never looking back. Caroline Mosier broke up the streak with a kill and an ace, but Campfield responded with three-straight aces. The Sandites led by as much as 22-10 before putting in the second string, and the Comets quickly took advantage with an 11-3 run before a Mosier service error secured the Sandite win.

The home team trailed only twice in the second set as well, with Jessica Flusche scoring an ace for a 9-8 Comet advantage. Jacelyn Smith tied it up and Madison Blaylock aced in a five-point run that the visitors never recovered from.

Sand Springs will get a conference preview game in their next match when they take on Booker T. Washington (5-2) at 12:00 p.m. The Sandites beat Washington 3-1 (22-25, 25-19, 25-11, 25-22) when they met last year in conference action, but the Hornets are riding a four-game streak as the winners of Friday’s A Pool. The loser of that match will play at 1:00 p.m. and the winner will play at 2:00 p.m. in the Championship finals. An if-needed match will be played at 3:00 p.m.

CPHS Volleyball: Sand Springs hammers McLain 25-4 and 25-4 at Sandite Invitational

IMG_2013.jpg

The Charles Page High School varsity volleyball team (3-6) picked up its biggest win in years Friday morning, with a 2-0 sweep of Raymond S. McLain High School (0-2) in the first round of the Sandite Invitational.

The Lady Sandites rolled past the Titans 25-4 and 25-4 in a best-of-three series in their inaugural home tournament. Senior standout Madison Burris led all scorers with ten aces and two kills in the match.

In game one the Sandites got off to an 8-0 lead with four aces from Raylynn Mong before a pair of errors let the Titans on the board. They then won twelve-straight rallies to make it 24-3, and Sophie Singleton scored the game-winning kill.

In the second set they came very near to recording a shutout, which is practically unheard of in volleyball. The girls took a 23-0 lead with twelve aces, including all ten of Burris’s, before giving up a series of errors. That match ended with a McLain service error.

Cloe Campfield had a team-high four kills for the Sandites and Mong had a team-high four assists. Fifteen players saw action for Sand Springs and eleven scored points.

Sand Springs will return to action against Will Rogers High School (4-4) at 3:00 p.m. and against Tecumseh (4-3) at 5:00 p.m.

CPHS Volleyball: Sandites go 0-5 at brutally tough Union Tournament

IMG_1798.JPG

The Charles Page High School varsity volleyball team (1-6) went 0-for-5 at the Union Invitational Tournament this past weekend against a field that was so tough, the defending 6A State Champions could only finish fourth.

Victory Christian (6-1) won sets of 25-23, 25-13, and 25-8, scoring 37 kills, five blocks, and five aces. Sand Springs had the defending 4A State Champions on their heels for most of the first set, leading from 5-4 till 19-18, and tied it three times from there before the Conquerors finished with back-to-back kills.

Victory committed twelve errors in the first set, but cleaned it up from there and the Sandites had to lean entirely on their own abilities. The Conquerors took an early 5-1 lead in set two and Sand Springs never managed to catch up. In set three Victory went on a 15-1 run for a 21-5 advantage and their 6A foes were too far behind to recover.

Sand Springs played a more balanced match against a returning State Qualifier in Edmond North (5-1), falling 25-19, 25-18, and 25-11. The Huskies jumped out to a 6-3 lead in game one, but Devree Youngblood and Madison Burris pushed their team to a 7-6 advantage. The lead changed five more times from there. Burris served back-to-back aces for a 10-8 edge and Youngblood aced for a 13-11 lead, but Edmond won four straight rallies to secure the advantage for the remainder of the set.

After a 3-0 start in set two, the Sandites fell behind and never again got in front of Edmond, but hung close till a six-rally run from the Huskies at 23-13. Cloe Campfield scored two kills, Burris aced, and Sophie Singleton combined on a block with Jacelyn Smith to keep things competitive, but the Huskies eventually put it away.

Game three was a Husky railroad as they won the first nine rallies and never looked back. Senior Kamryn Bacus led all scorers with seventeen kills, one block, and four aces for the Huskies. Campfield led Sand Springs in kills with five, while Burris had four kills and three aces.

In the third Friday match the girls took on the defending 5A State Champions from Bishop Kelley (4-2) and went down 25-18, 25-18, and 25-16. The Comets recorded 29 kills to the Sandites’ 19, led by Abby Medico with ten and Audrey Buford with eight.

Sand Springs led twice in the first set, four times in the second, and only once in the third, but were competitive in all three. Campfield had a team-high five kills, followed by Wyrick and Youngblood with four apiece. Burris had six assists and Mong had five assists and three digs.

Saturday went much the way of Friday, with a pair of 3-0 losses to Union (2-6) and Stillwater (3-5). Stillwater won 25-18, 25-21, and 25-16, then Union won 25-16, 25-22, and 25-20 in the 7th place match.

Sand Springs hosts All-State wrestling, West wins both duals

Charles Page High School in Sand Springs hosted the Oklahoma Coaches Association All-State Duals Wednesday night at the Ed Dubie Field House, and the Western squads defeated the East in both Large and Small classifications.

Sand Springs had one senior wrestler receive an All State commendation, but he was unable to compete due to a shoulder injury. Baker University-commit Scott Patton won thirty straight matches his senior year, finishing with a 31-2 record and 2nd Place medal at the State Tournament. Broken Arrow’s Diego Maturino filled in for Patton in the 160 pounds spot.

Overall, western athletes won fifteen matches, the east won nine, and two matches resulted in ties. The Large West squad coached by Duncan’s Bobby Cook won its dual 36-21 over the Eastern unit coached by Durant’s Jim Taylor.

The dual started with a 2-2 tie after a scoreless overtime period between David Boucher and Dominic Derr. Cameron Picklo got a payback win at 138 pounds with a 4-2 decision over State Champion Spencer Schickram, who he was pinned by at the State Tournament. Two-time State Champion Kobi Gomez won a 4-2 overtime decision against three-time State Finalist Gage Hight to tie the dual at 12-12.

The West won seven straight matches and Carson Savage clinched the dual with a fall at 195. The East evened things up a little bit with a decision at 220 and an upset at heavyweight. 6A State Runner-Up Caleb Orr pinned two-time 5A State Champion Josh Heindselman to wrap the night up.

The Small West company coached by Anadarko’s Craig Pruitt rolled to a 30-9 advantage before the East began to battle back. Wagoner coach Micco Charboneau rallied his boys to win their final four matches for a close 30-27 defeat.

The Small West won their first two matches and never trailed in the dual. Thaddeus Long and Logan Farrell battled to a 4-4 tie in a rematch of 4A State Finals. Wesley Scott picked up a fall for the East, then viewers were treated to yet another Finals rematch. Kobe Kizarr repeated his State Championship win with a 3-0 decision against Price Perrier to kick off a five-match win streak.

Alec McDoulett won 11-4 in a battle of State Runners-Up against Abel Perez and 3A State Runner-Up Tyler Lavey knocked off State Champion Luke Ahrberg 6-4. Nathan Ulmer kicked off the Eastern rally attempt by pinning Denver Dahlenburg. Teaguen Wilson had the chance to tie the dual with a pin in the final match, but had to settle for a 4-1 decision.

Prior to the dual, awards were presented to the coaches and wrestlers of the year in each classification.

Christian Forbes goes undefeated with Cadet Dual Team

IMG_3114.jpg

Charles Page High School sophomore Christian Forbes recently competed with the Oklahoma Cadet Dual team in Spokane, Washington. The Sandite went undefeated at 100 pounds, helping his state to a 15th place finish in Greco-Roman and an eighth-place finish in Freestyle.

In Freestyle Forbes defeated Montana State Champion Teegan Vasquez 9-4, Southern Plains Champion Sam Ewing 10-0, Iowa State Champion Ryder Block 20-17, and California State Champion Tyler Riley 10-0.

In Greco he defeated Texas State Champion Alec Robeson 13-2, and Utah State Champion Kaden Ercanbrack 12-2.

23 states sent 27 teams to the Freestyle tournament while 22 states sent 26 teams to compete in Greco. The top two were the same in both styles. Minnesota defeated Illinois 40-34 in Freestyle and 40-33 in Greco.

The Gopher State has made the finals three years running in Freestyle, but this was their first crown since 2010. They’ve won three out of the last four Greco tournaments. Oklahoma’s last Cadet Freestyle title came in 2008. They have yet to win in Greco Roman.

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.

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.

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.

Not only is the Charles Page High School boys’ soccer team headed to the playoffs for the first time in recent memory, they also get to host their first round game after finishing as the District 6A-4 Runners-Up.

The Sandites (12-2) concluded the regular season last week with a 4-2 road win against Capitol Hill, putting them at a 5-2 district record. 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.

Two Sand Springs disc golfers won their divisions at the Inaugural J. Beast Fall Classic in Springdale, Arkansas recently.

The Springdale Parks and Recreation department hosted the tournament at J.B. Hunt Park. Springdale mayor Doug Sprouse was on hand to kick the park's first event off with a ceremonial first throw. Charles Page librarian Richard Why and Sandite Pride Staff Writer Virgil Noah traveled to the event and both came home with victories in their respective divisions.

Why shot back-to-back rounds of six under par to win by a stroke in the Men's Professional Open division. Why defeated a field of seven other professional disc golfers and it is the eleventh professional win of his career. He is sponsored by FOSSA Disc Golf and WhyDry Chalk Bags. 

Noah and Tyler Thomason, both 2012 graduates of Charles Page High School, competed in the Men's Recreational division. Noah shot the low score in Rec during Round One with a one-under-par and had a three-stroke lead going into the final round. Thomason shot three over and was in a tie for third. Noah and Thomason shot four over and ten over respectively in the second round to finish First and Fifth in a field of eighteen. The victory was the third amateur win in Noah's career.
