CPHS Girls Basketball: Mid-Season Review with Stats

IMG_7209.JPG

The Class 6A No. 8 ranked Charles Page High School girls’ basketball team (8-2, 5-0) has had ups and downs this season, but kicked off the new year with a pair of solid wins, reminding everyone that they are an indisputable State contender.

The Lady Sandites entered the season ranked first in Class 6A with four returning starters and a new Head Coach in Tobey Nightingale. Nightingale brought only a year of head coaching experience into Sand Springs, but brought an uptempo offensive and full court press that has paid dividends for the Sandites.

The top ranking jinxed the ladies, who suffered a 74-62 upset by No. 17 Ponca City in the season opener. They bounced back hard with their biggest win in years, 109-39 against Muskogee. They dominated Broken Arrow 89-56 and Memorial 75-34 before suffering a 57-43 loss to No. 3 Shawnee in the second round of the Bishop Kelley Invitational. The rough performance continued into their next game when they needed overtime to beat No. 20 Jenks.

A high point for the team was a 66-48 win over No. 11 Bartlesville, snapping a seventeen-straight conference win streak by the defending Frontier Valley Champions. In the next game, however, they only managed a 55-39 win over Muskogee and only led 35-30 to start the fourth quarter.

The Sandites are only two games into the new year, but thus far they have executed excellently in both. Against No. 18 Bixby they held a double-digit lead at the half and were 44-19 before sending in the backups. They finished that game with their highest field goal percentage of the season at 58% and highest free throw percentage at 88%.

In the payback win over Ponca City they showed their ability to overcome adversity by surging back from a double-digit deficit for a seventeen-point win.

The team boasts one of the best starting lineups in school history with four seniors, each of whom is committed to continue their athletic careers at the college level.

Holly Kersgieter, a University of Kansas commit, leads all starters with a 36% three-point percentage and 77% free throw percentage, 3.6 offensive rebounds, 5.3 defensive rebounds, and an incredible 22.6 points per game. She has recorded three double-doubles, led her team on eight occasions, and posted a career-high 38 points against Jenks.

Destiny Johnson is a University of Tulsa commit and the team’s number-two scorer with 13.9 points per outing. She leads the team in assists (1.5), and steals (3.5) with one double-double, three team-highs, and a season-best performance of 22 points against Broken Arrow. Her career-high of 31 points came in the 2017 season opener against Ponca.

Isabella Regalado will be taking her talents to Northeastern State University next season. She leads the team in blocks (0.7) and averages 9.2 points per game. She scored a season-high eighteen against Broken Arrow and a career-high 23 points last season against Jenks.

Jacie Taber has the highest field goal percentage among the starting unit at 65% and is 67% in two-point range. She recorded her career high of fifteen points against Bartlesville, just two games after a career-high twelve point, twelve-rebound performance against Shawnee. Primarily a pitcher, Taber will be playing softball for Missouri State University next season.

Madison Burris (3.4 ppg) is the only regular starter who will be returning next season.

The Lady Sandites will return to action Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. on the road against No. 19 Sapulpa (5-3, 2-1).
