Sand Springs Homecoming Parade is Success

By: Scott Emigh, Editor-in-Chief

The 2015 Sand Springs Homecoming Parade was a success as thousands of Sandites showed up in downtown to cheer on our young people. 

The Homecoming Parade is a longstanding tradition in Sand Springs, but only in recent years has it been moved to Thursday evenings instead of Friday before the game.

The Homecoming football game will be Charles Page's opportunity to get their first win on the books. The Sandites lost their last game at Bartlesville and the game against Guthrie was cancelled due to lightening. The first two games against Hale and Enid were wins on the field but were forfeited Thursday due to an ineligible player.

Friday night the #4 Sandites will take on #9 Claremore in a week five district match-up. Sand Springs (0-3, 0-1) has a 29-8 record against Claremore (2-2, 0-1).
