Sand Springs has two softball players, two cross-country runners, two baseball players, one basketball player, three football players, one volleyball player, and two soccer players all headed to the next level.

Zicker was the second-highest scoring player on the 2016 Lady Sandite team with 12 goals and two braces. She was an Offensive MVP and was named to the All-District team. The Lady Sandites went 9-6 last season.
