The Sand Springs boys basketball team started the season outscoring Ponca City by seven points in both the first and second quarters. The Sandites were cruising en route to a 14-point lead at halftime, and they eventually recorded a 75-64 victory over the Wildcats. But Sand Springs’ performance left something to be desired, Sand Springs coach Eric Savage said. “Really disappointed in our team’s lack of focus and loss of composure in the fourth quarter,” Savage said. “We have a lot of work to do.”...

On tap for 2019-2020 The Charles Page High School boys will take the hardwood with three returning players this season. Davon Richardson, Josh Minney and Mario Fox return to the lineup after being in last season’s starting lineup. The Sandites figure to be major players in the Class 6A basketball landscape during the 2019-2020 campaign. “We’ve built some momentum the last several years,” Sand Springs coach Eric Savage said. “We are just taking baby steps from where we came from and just slowly build each year.” Quick look back The Sandites burst out of the gates last season, winning nine of their first 10 games. Sand Springs enjoyed wins over Broken Arrow (twice), Muskogee (twice), Northwest Classen and plenty others during regular season play. In two regular season tournaments, the Sandites finished third at the Veterans Arena tournament at Tulsa Memorial and second at the Duncan Invitational. In playoff action, Sand Springs bulldozed Enid and Southmoore to claim a regional championship — the team’s first since 1962. In area play, the Sandites came up short of the state tournament with back-to-back losses to Sapulpa and Putnam City North. Richardson, a 6-foot-4 senior guard, averaged 16 points per game last season. Minney (6-5 senior forward) and Fox (5-10 junior guard) combined to average 19 points per contest last season....

A penalty kick was the difference in Sand Springs’ first-round win in the state playoffs. Sophomore Fernando Saldana scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win over the Enid Plainsmen in the Class 6A state playoffs Wednesday, May 1 at Memorial Stadium. It had been 10 years since the Sand Springs soccer team made a state playoff appearance, and the Sandites did not disappoint. With 6:40 left in the first half, Saldana scored an unconventional penalty kick, giving the Sandites a 1-0 lead. Instead of lining up and taking the shot, Saldana danced his way to the ball and buried it in the back of the net. Less than four minutes later, the Sandites were back in the same spot. Sand Springs was awarded another penalty kick, but, this time, Luke Jeffus would take the kick. Jeffus took a more traditional approach, but the Enid goalkeeper was able to make a diving save. The Sandites (13-2) went into the locker room with a 1-0 lead. Things got rough in the second half, and the referees issued several yellow cards to Enid. With around 17:34 left in the game, Enid’s Miguel Garcia was issued his second yellow card of the game, earning him an ejection. The Plainsmen had several scoring chances in the second chance, but senior goal keeper Ethan Tippit came up big with some huge saves. He ended the game with a clean sheet. With only a few minutes to play, Saldana was fouled hard deep in Enid territory and was taken out of the game. He left the field on his own volition. He now has a team-high 14 goals on the season. The Sandites will play the winner of Jenks and Norman, and Norman beat Sand Springs in a shootout earlier in the season....
