CPHS Football: Sandites fall 23-20 in OT at Shawnee, Mackey runs for 251

The Class 6A-II No. 8 ranked Charles Page High School football team (1-3, 0-1) took a 12-6 halftime lead into the locker room Friday night in Shawnee, but the No. 15 ranked Wolves (1-3, 1-0) took advantage of key Sand Springs turnovers to force overtime, winning 23-20 before a small crowd of dedicated fans in a relentless chilling drizzle.

Joel Mackey made a statement with an eighty-yard touchdown run on the first play of the game, and racked up a career-high 251 yards and one touchdown on thirty carries. Caden Pennington was held to a 5-11-79-1 passing performance due to the rain, but accumulated 78 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.

The Sandites forced a punt on Shawnee’s opening drive, but fumbled the ball away to Elijah Powis at their own 26. Four plays later and Tre’Juan Shaw punched it in from twenty yards out. Their PAT sailed wide and the teams were tied up at 6-6.

The Sandites gave up a turnover on downs at the Shawnee thirteen, but caught a break with a fumble recovery from freshman Kaden Glass. This time they hit pay dirt on a sixteen-yard run from Pennington, but once again the point-after attempt failed. They had one more chance to score before the half, but Demetress Beavers broke up a red zone pass attempt as time expired.

Shawnee tied it up on the opening drive of the third quarter with a 27-yard run from Shaw, but Jerret Haley stopped a two-point run attempt from Trenton Skinner. They took the lead soon after with a five-yard run from Shaw, who also punched in the two-point conversion.

The Sandites tied it on an eighty-yard march and one-yard keeper, with a Pennington two-point conversion as well. Justis Myers made a crucial sack on a fourth-down attempt in the Sandite red zone and the Sandites put together one last push.

Ten plays later the Sandites threatened at the Shawnee 22-yard line, but Kaiden Johnson caught Pennington’s first interception of the season to force overtime.

Both teams got four downs from the ten-yard line in overtime. Shawnee won the toss and elected to play defense first.

The ground game proved fruitless for Sand Springs and they tried a shotgun formation on fourth-and-six. Pennington scrambled out of a collapsed pocket and had a wide open lane to the left, but the weather struck once again as his feet slid out from under him on the soaking turf.

Shawnee made no gains on their first two carries and threw an incompletion, but Kossi Kodoe connected on a 27-yard field goal to secure the upset victory.

Sand Springs will return to action Friday at home with a district bout against No. 6 Muskogee (3-1, 1-0). The Wolves will host No. 16 Ponca City (0-4, 0-1). Muskogee defeated Ponca City 16-7 on Friday.

CPHS Football: Sandites up 12-6 at halftime, Mackey has 165 yards

The Class 6A-II No. 8 ranked Charles Page High School football team took a 12-6 halftime lead into the locker room Friday night in Shawnee, despite doubling the No. 15 ranked Wolves (0-3) in offensive yardage.

Joel Mackey made a statement with an eighty-yard touchdown run on the first play of the game, but Jaden Weiser’s point-after kick was low.

The Sandites forced a punt on Shawnee’s opening drive, but fumbled the ball away to Elijah Powis at their own 26. Four plays later and Tre’Juan Shaw punched it in from twenty yards out. Their PAT sailed wide and the teams were tied up at 6-6.

Senior quarterback Caden Pennington picked up sixteen yards for a first down on the first play of their next drive. Mackey carried the ball to the eighteen, Pennington snagged seven more, but an incomplete fourth-down pass turned the ball over.

Sand Springs got a big break on the second play of the second quarter when freshman standout Kaden Glass recovered a fumbled lateral and set up a four-play 56-yard drive capped by a sixteen-yard scoring run from Pennington. Once again the point-after failed, but the Sandites were back out front at 12-6.

Three punts later and the Sandites put together another solid drive, parking at the Shawnee nine-yard line. The clock was their enemy, however, and Demetress Beavers broke up a third-down endzone pass as time expired.

Sand Springs attempted only five passes in the first half, while Shawnee attempted zero due to the rainy conditions. Mackey ended up with fifteen carries for 165 yards, including 134 in the first quarter. Pennington had an even fifty yards on two passes, including a fourteen-yard shovel pass to Jacob Snodgrass, and a impressive 36-yard deep ball to Colton Roberts.

CPHS Volleyball: Sandites drop matches to Owasso and Cascia Hall

The Charles Page High School varsity volleyball team (5-15) dropped a 3-1 match to 5A No. 4 Cascia Hall (22-8) Thursday evening, giving the eight-time State Championship-winning program a run for their money on their home court.

Cascia needed only six kills to steal the first set from Sand Springs, who committed thirteen errors. The Sandites actually led in kills with seven, including three from Madison Burris, and both teams had three aces. After doubling down 12-6 on Sand Springs, the Commandos gave up six-straight for a tie score. Devree Youngblood scored all three Sandite aces during that run. The home team quickly adjusted, however, and rattled off a six-straight streak of their own en route to a 25-16 win.

The Sandites brought their A game in Set Two, however, winning a 27-25 thriller. Youngblood and Campfield scored three kills apiece and Campfield hit two aces, but the difference-maker was the Commandos’ twelve errors. Cascia only led for four rallies, but the game tied eleven times.

Cascia found another gear in the third game, rallying from a 7-4 deficit to a 20-10 lead. Sand Springs found kills from Campfield, Burris, and Cheyenne Henry to try and battle back, but the Commandos won four in a row to close the deal at 25-15. The Sandites out-killed the Commandos 12-11, led by Henry with five, but committed ten errors to Cascia’s three.

Sand Springs led for the entirety of the fourth set before blowing a 19-11 lead. Cascia won five rallies straight, Rachel Hines scored one for the Sandites, then Cascia won four more to tie it at 20-20. Two Commando errors and a Campfield ace made it 23-20 and it looked like Campfield would serve another ace. Instead, a dogpile of Commandos managed to miraculously dig the ball out and caught the Sandites in a campfire. Two kills tied it, Youngblood made it 24-23, then Cascia rattled off three more points for the 26-24 win.

On Tuesday the Sandites traveled to No. 8 Owasso (17-6) and fell 3-0.

The Lady Sandites fell into an 11-2 hole in the first set before Raylynn Mong scored their first kill on a tipped ball. They began to battle back from there and closed the deficit to 16-11 with kills from Madison Burris, Cheyenne Henry, Devree Youngblood, Vanessa Wyrick and Cloe Campfield, but the Rams turned up the heat and rocketed forward to a 25-13 win with ten kills, two blocks, and four aces. Madison Blaylock had five digs in the set.

The second set was only a one-point improvement as the Rams won 25-14 with twelve kills and a dozen Sand Springs errors. Owasso won the third set 25-15 with a dozen kills and eleven Sandite errors.

Sand Springs will return to action Tuesday at 6:15 p.m. with a home match against Bixby.

CPHS Softball: Sandites run-rule Stillwater 13-3, Usher and Presnell hit home runs

After suffering their first district loss of the season last week, the Lady Sandites could easily have fallen into a slump. Instead, they rallied to their best offensive performance of the season for a 13-3 run-rule victory over Stillwater High School (15-6, 5-3) Tuesday evening on their home field.

Stillwater is the number-three team in the district, even after the loss, but the Sandites beat them as easily as everyone else who crosses their path. The Charles Page High School softball team (17-5, 7-1) batted .483 with fourteen hits, their best percentage in the past 25 games.

Rogers State University-committed senior Kimi Presnell hit a triple and a home run, while junior Sabrina Usher hit a double and her fifth home-run of the season. Missouri State commit Jacie Taber (2-0, 31-10) got the win on the mound, giving up no runs, two hits, and one walk with three strikeouts in three innings.

Stillwater threatened early, loading the bases with two walks and an error, but Taber’s first strikeout of the night left them wanting and the Sandites came in to start the slugfest.

Makenna Skaggs bounced a double off the center field wall and was joined on base by Usher with a walk and Jenson Arnold with a single. Taber brought in Skaggs on a sacrifice and Cameron Clemons cleaned up with a 2RBI single into right field.

The Lady Sandites brought a 3-0 lead into the bottom of the second and Presnell smashed a solo home run over the center field wall.

Taber stranded two hits with a strikeout in the top of the third, and Elizabeth Luttrell singled in Jolee McNally to make it 5-0.

Presnell kicked off the fourth with a triple and came in on a single from Skaggs, who in turn scored on Usher’s home run.

Julia Cottrill got the Pioneers on the board with a two-run homer in the top of the fifth and Sidney McLaughlin singled in Gracie Ore, but the Sandites surged ahead for the run-rule in the bottom of the inning.

Madison Lee scored on a wild pitch, Usher doubled in Presnell, Arnold doubled in Usher, and Clemons singled in Drew Hawkins. Taber scored on a wild pitch to secure the victory.

Madelyn Blair (7-1, 26-6) pitched the last two innings, throwing four hits, one strikeout, and one walk.

Sand Springs will return to action Thursday at Broken Arrow (27-3, 8-0), a must-have win if they hope to remain in contention for the District Title. The Tigers defeated the Sandites 2-5 in a come-from-behind seventh inning rally last Thursday.

CPHS Cross Country: Sandites host first-ever 5K, Boys place 4th, Girls 5th

Sand Springs hosted its first-ever cross country meet Saturday at Case Community Park. The Case Cross Country Invitational combined high school and junior high running with the Eighth Annual Conner’s Classic 5K.

The Conner’s Classic is an annual Sand Springs Public Schools Cross Country fundraiser, named for a former special needs student who is unable to run on his own. Elementary Coach Chris Corbin pushes Conner Williamson in an adult racing stroller each year so that the Sandite can participate.

The Conner’s Classic was previously held at Ray Brown Park next to Charles Page High School. This year it was held at Case as the opener before the school races began. Danyel Swafford (43) won the women’s run in 23:55 with a remarkable 2:14 lead on the runner-up, Gina Myers (36). Both ladies are from Sand Springs. Lydon Swafford (13) won the men’s run in 22:21 followed by Michael Randolph (41) in 23:49, both from Sand Springs.

Deer Creek High School from Edmond won all four high school categories, both men and women’s varsity and men and women’s junior varsity. Bartlesville Junior High won the girls’ race and Jenks Junior High won the boys’.

Sand Springs placed fifth of eight teams in the girls’ varsity race. The varsity boys placed fourth of eleven and the JV boys placed sixth of nine. The Lady Sandites did not field a full team for junior varsity.

Deer Creek sophomore Aubrey Byers won varsity girls in 20:34 followed by Grove sophomore Rory Geer in 21:43. Junior Erika Baker led the Lady Sandites with a nineteenth place finish in 24:19.

Deer Creek dominated the boys’ competition, winning the first four places and six of the top eight. Senior Steven Clark won in 17:05 closely followed by junior teammate Jack Reed in 17:08. Sandite senior Jacob Smith cracked the top ten in 18:34 with a narrow lead on teammate Nelson Yazzie in 18:41.

Deer Creek won the top eight places in JV girls and thirteen of the top fourteen, led by Zenaida Burgos in 23:01. Haylee Alford was the lone Lady Sandite in JV and finished 24th place in 29:07.

Freshman Landon Harrod led the Deer Creek JV boys in 18:22. The Antlers won six of the top seven spots. Kaegan Murray placed 28th for the Sandites in 21:11.

The Sandites will return to action October 4th, 2018 at the Owasso Invitational in Mohawk Park.

The Class 6A-II No. 8 ranked Charles Page High School football team (1-2) will kick off district action at 7:30 p.m. Friday night in Shawnee against the No. 15 Wolves (0-3). The last time the two teams met, none of the current players were born yet. While the Sandites are hoping to get back to an even record in their third-straight road game, their hosts are simply hoping to snap a four-game losing streak.

They have been in Class 6A-II since its inception in 2014. The Sandites hold one gold ball, winning the 2A State title in 1966.

Shawnee is coming off a 7-4 season at the 5A level. Head Coach Billy Brown is in his fifteenth season with a 90-71 record and back-to-back playoff appearances. The Wolves won the 5A State title in 2003 and the 3A title in 1973.

CPHS Football: Sandites fall 49-13 to defending Arkansas State Champs

 Senior QB Caden Pennington racked up career yardage on the ground Friday night in Greenwood, Arkansas.

Senior QB Caden Pennington racked up career yardage on the ground Friday night in Greenwood, Arkansas.

The Charles Page High School varsity football team (1-2) bit off more than they could chew Friday night in Greenwood, Arkansas, falling to the defending Class 6A State Champions (2-1), a team that has only lost three games in the past four seasons.

Senior quarterback Caden Pennington was held to a season low 45 passing yards after averaging over 180 in the first two games. He made up for it on the ground, however, running up a career-high of 95 yards with his second career touchdown. Joel Mackey contributed 82 yards and a score on the ground, while Trey Wilkerson had fifty.

The Bulldogs scored on the first offensive play of the game with senior quarterback Peyton Holt running it fourteen yards after Max Vickery recovered a fumbled kickoff return.

Greenwood’s special teams continued to shine with Luke Leonard returning a punt for a 57 yard touchdown after the Sandites were held to a quick three-and-out. Less than three minutes into the game and they led 14-0 with two extra points from kicker Grant Ennis.

The Sandite offense managed a slow and steady eleven-play sixty-yard march to the Bulldog redzone. After taking a six yard sack, Pennington tried to make up for it with a double-reverse endzone pass that was dropped by the receiver. A false start and two pass breakups later and the Bulldogs got the ball back for a score.

Greenwood catapulted 67 yards in three plays, highlighted by a 54-yard keeper. Marc Jones took a handoff from two yards out and Ennis made it 21-0. They scored again on the opening play of the second quarter with an eighteen yard pass from Holt to Leonard.

Holt found Treyton Dawson from 31 yards out and Dawson broke two tackles for the 35-0 lead. Sand Springs marched 65 yards in thirteen plays, including a fourth down conversion, but turned the ball over with an incomplete pass at the Greenwood fifteen.

The Bulldogs scored on the opening possession of the second half when Holt made the most of a broken play and ran it in from ten. With a 42-0 lead, the Dogs finally sent in the second string.

The Sandites scored on an eighty-yard drive with a twenty-yard run from Mackey. Jaden Weiser’s kick missed, but the Sandites had averted the shutout.

Second-string quarterback Jace Presley led the Bulldogs in a 66-yard scoring march capped by an eighteen yard Aydin Chatfield touchdown run and Jackson Stewart kicked the extra point shortly before the end of the third quarter.

Sand Springs struck again to start the fourth quarter off. They traveled seventy yards in twelve plays before Pennington scrambled in from ten yards out after the pass play fell apart. This time Weiser’s PAT rang true for the final point of the game.

Timothy Earnhardt took over at quarterback and brought his team to the Sandites’ six before taking a knee to end the game.

Sand Springs will travel to Shawnee (0-3) next Friday at 7:00 p.m. to kick off district action.

CPHS Softball: Luttrell hits home run in 5-2 loss to Broken Arrow

The Sand Springs and Broken Arrow high school softball teams came into Tuesday evening’s matchup with undefeated district records, and the battle lived up to the hype. The Tigers came from behind for a 5-2 seventh-inning victory, scoring five runs on three errors.

Cowley County Community College-committed senior Elizabeth Luttrell hit her second home run of the season and eighth of her career in the bottom of the fifth inning. Jacie Taber reached on an error in the sixth and scored on a single from Aliyah Taff for the 2-0 Sandite lead.

The seventh inning spelled disaster for the Sandites, who gave up three straight singles to load the bases. Three errors and five runs later and Raegan Edwards grounded into a 4-6-3 double play to bring the Sandites in to bat.

The Sandites picked up a pair of walks, but the Tigers had a double-play of their own in store to bring the game to a close.

Madelyn Blair (7-1, 26-6) pitched the first four innings, throwing four hits and one walk. Taff (4-3, 4-5) got the loss with four hits, three strikeouts, and no walks in three innings.

Sand Springs Softball (16-5, 6-1) will return to action Tuesday with a district home game against Stillwater (14-5, 4-2) at 5:00 p.m. They will get a rematch with Broken Arrow (25-3, 6-0) Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

CPHS Softball: Sandites shut out Putnam City North 10-0, twice

Strong performances from a youthful bullpen propelled the Sandites to a pair of 10-0 run-rule victories over Putnam City North High School (4-17, 0-4) Monday evening in Sand Springs. Junior Mackenzie Bechtold pitched a five-inning no-hitter in game one and sophomore Aliyah Taff threw a one-hitter in game two, which only lasted three innings.

Charles Page (15-4, 5-0) currently leads the district, but has to get past Broken Arrow (23-3, 5-0) on Thursday to take full control of the standings. They will also host Ponca City (17-8, 2-4) for Senior Night Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. They defeated the Wildcats 11-0 last week.

Jacie Taber scored Kimi Presnell and Makenna Skaggs on a hard ground ball in the bottom of the first, then Presnell doubled in Madelyn Blair in the second inning. Skaggs sacrificed to score Elizabeth Luttrell and Presnell scored on a wild pitch for a 5-0 lead.

Presnell hit her third home run of the season to score Luttrell in the fourth, Skaggs scored on a passed ball, and Taber stole home to make it 9-0. Drew Hawkins scored on a double from Luttrell to secure the victory.

Bechtold (3-0) had a career-best performance with six strikeouts and no walks. Taff (4-2, 4-4) threw one hit, three strikeouts, and one walk in game two.

Skaggs scored Presnell on a single and came in on a single from Felicity Horn, then Reagan Rector walked in on loaded bases for a 3-0 first inning lead. Jenson Arnold and Taber scored Luttrell and Skaggs on singles in the second.

An error and two walks loaded the bases in the third. Skaggs doubled in Cameron Clemons and Luttrell, then Sabrina Usher tripled to score Presnell and Skaggs. Arnold scored Usher on a single for the 10-0 lead. Taff struck out two in the final inning to secure the win.

CPHS Softball: Sandites win fourth-straight, remain undefeated in district

 Kimi Presnell hit home runs in two different games last week.

Kimi Presnell hit home runs in two different games last week.

The Charles Page High School varsity softball team (13-4, 3-0) is riding a four-game win-streak after notching a district victory over Ponca City (17-7, 2-3) and winning two games at Bixby.

The Lady Sandites hammered the Wildcats 11-0 on Wednesday with their fifth-best offensive showing of the season and their best defensive performance. Madelyn Blair, Kimi Presnell, and Elizabeth Luttrell each hit home runs and Makenna Skaggs drilled two triples. Sabrina Usher hit one double and Cameron Clemons hit two for a team-high three RBI.

All three of the Sandites’ home runs came back-to-back-to-back in the top of the second. They recorded seven hits and eight runs in the remarkable inning.

Madelyn Blair (6-1, 25-6) got the start on the mound, throwing two strikeouts and two walks in two innings without giving up any hits. Mackenzie Bechtold (2-0) recorded the win with one hit and one walk in three innings. The Lady Cats batted only .063.

On Friday the Sandites took on Cushing (18-8) and needed an international tie breaker to settle things. The Tigers took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second from three hits and an error. Presnell doubled in Luttrell in the third and Usher hit a home run in the fourth to tie it up.

Presnell was placed on second to start the sixth inning but was tagged out at home in a double play and things didn’t look good for the Sandites. However, Skaggs hit a single and Usher and Jacie Taber were walked to load the bases.

Felicity Horn hit a 3BI triple for the 5-2 lead, and that was all they would need. The Tigers scored one run on two singles, but the Sandites had a double-play of their own to secure the victory.

Aliyah Taff (3-2, 3-4) went the distance on the mound, tossing eight hits, no walks, and one strikeout.

Blair tossed a four-hit, four-strikeout, four-walk victory over Fort Gibson (15-6) Saturday as the Lady Sandites won their seventh shutout of the season, 3-0.

Presnell scored the opening run on a sacrifice fly from Taber in the bottom of the first, then brought in Luttrell with a home run in the fifth.

Sand Springs Softball will return to action Monday afternoon at home with a 3:30 p.m. district double-header against Putnam City North (4-15, 0-2).

After securing their first victories of the 2018 season, Sand Springs and Greenwood, Arkansas will both be looking to improve to a winning record Friday night at Smith Robinson Stadium.

The first-ever meeting between the two teams will be played on the home turf of the defending Arkansas 6A State Champions. A daunting foe, but not something the Sandites aren't used to. Sand Springs took on the Arkansas 5A State Champions from Pulaski Academy the past two years. Both were brutal losses, but helped prepare the Sandites for some of the tough district battles to come. 

Greenwood went undefeated in three-straight regular seasons before losing their opener this year. They made it to the State finals three years in a row before finally wining their eighth gold ball last season.

CPHS Football: No. 8 Sandites pummel No. 9 Putnam City 45-24


Warr Acres - Class 6A-II No. 8 ranked Charles Page High School (1-1) rolled into Putnam City Stadium looking for their first win of the season. They got it, and then some. The Sandites dominated No. 9 Putnam City High School 45-24 and led by as much as 35 points before sending in the backups.

Senior quarterback Caden Pennington had another impressive game with 9 completions for 169 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions. He threw passes to six different receivers, led by Braden Foster with two catches for 49 yards and Daren Hawkins with three catches for 43 yards and two touchdowns.

The visitors wasted no time in getting on the board, marching eighty yards in seven plays and scoring on a six-yard pass from Pennington to Hawkins. Jaden Weiser's point-after kick was blocked, but Pennington made up for it with a two-point run after a 62-yard touchdown run by Mackey. 

The Pirates’ first possession was a quick three-and-out and the second ended in a fumble at the Sandite 38. Pennington found Justin Roe for 30 yards and Garrett McCallie ran for 28 more to land at the Pirate two-yard line. A holding call and a pair of incomplete passes later and Weiser got to kick his first field goal of the season from 26 yards.

Sand Springs took a 17-0 lead into the second quarter, but the Pirates finally hit pay dirt on a 27-yard field goal from Sam De La Pena.

Putnam forced the Sandites to punt and marched back down to  the Sandite 29 before once again fumbling the ball away to Peterman. Eleven plays later and Pennington hit Colten Roberts from seventeen yards out. Ty Rutledge recovered a fumble on the corresponding kick return and Pennington turned to Hawkins for a 25-yard score on the next play. Weiser's point-after kicks both sailed true and the Sandites took a 31-3 lead into the locker room.

The Pirates found their mojo on the opening drive of the second half, scoring on the sixth play with a 45-yard run from Keylhan Henderson. Julian DeLoera made the extra point to put it back at a three-score game. 

Sand Springs was equally ready for action, pummeling their way down to the two yard line where Wilkerson made his first score of the night. He scored again on their next drive ,this time from 42 yards out for the final Sand Springs points of the night.

Tyrece Romesburg scored a fourteen-yard keeper on the opening play of the fourth quarter, then threw a five-yard pass to Seth Wisby with seventeen seconds to play.
