Santa Fe: Gunnar Nixon, Conor Costello makin' noise...
By Robert Przybylo
Edmond Santa Fe track star Gunnar Nixon finished sixth in the high jump at the first Youth Olympic Games in Singapore on Saturday morning.
Nixon was able to clear 6 feet 11 inches. Nixon said on his Facebook the two weeks have been a great experience for him.
The senior also earned another honor this week as he was named the top multi-event high school competitor by DyeStat for the last year.
Nixon made his mark at the Arcadia Invitational in April by posted the second-highest high school decathlon score ever.
The Edmond Santa Fe baseball team could possibly have at least five players move on to Division I schools, and coach Lonny Cobble got another one last week.
Senior Conor Costello committed to Arkansas last week, joining pitcher Clayton Blackburn who committed to Oklahoma earlier this summer.
Costello had an arm injury early in the spring, but he played a solid third base down the stretch for the Wolves and opened a lot of teams’ eyes with his play this summer.
Costello was also receiving interest from TCU, OU and Stanford but was happy with the offer from the Razorbacks. He will join Deer Creek stars Michael Fulmer and Brian Anderson as commits to the Hogs.
