SKIATOOK — Edmond Santa Fe coach Paul Bass wanted to make sure his team was focused for Thursday’s first-round state tournament game against Putnam City North.

“On the bus coming up here, the team had to take a three-page test on our offenses,” Bass said. “So they were focused and ready to go when we got here.”

The proof is in the final score, a 57-31 win for second-ranked Santa Fe (24-1), which will face No. 8 Muskogee in the Class 6A semifinals at 10:30 a.m. Friday at Oral Roberts’ Mabee Center in Tulsa.

“It was all about focusing,” said Wolves senior Tamara Lee, who scored 11 of her game-high 17 points in the first half. “For the seniors, we knew this weekend would be our last time playing, so we want to go out and show everybody who’s best.”

Santa Fe sophomore Aahliyah Jackson added 13 points as the Wolves had 11 players score in the win.

Most importantly, Santa Fe was able to extend its lead to nearly 20 points late in the third quarter, allowing Bass to rest his starters a considerable amount.

“We’ve got a good five coming off the bench, and it kept us resting,” Bass said. “It was a huge advantage. When you’re playing back-to-back-to-back, you’ve got to find somewhere to rest, and that was good for us.”

PC North (18-10) took an early 8-6 lead, but Santa Fe scored the final eight points of the first quarter to take control. By halftime, the Wolves’ lead had extended to 28-14.

Sophomore London Archer led PC North with 10 points, while Sidney Carolina added eight in her final high school game.
