OBU SIGNS LACROSSE PAIR
Edmond Memorial's Chloe Webber and Edmond North's Hannah Dowell signed to play lacrosse at Oklahoma Baptist University.
Webber is an attacker, and Dowell is a midfielder.
“I am excited to add more girls to next year's roster who are local so that we can continue to grow the sport throughout Oklahoma,” Lady Bison coach Katy Mohr said in a release.
OBU is in its first season of women's lacrosse. The addition of the sport was announced in 2010 along with the additions of football and swimming.
Oklahoma Baptist is playing an independent schedule this year, going 1-4 through its first five games.
The Lady Bison host Missouri State on March 30.
They've also played Texas State, Texas Tech, Midland University and the University of Dallas.
Lacrosse is a club sport at both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
PIRATES, PANTHERS PLAY FOR CALDWELL CUP
The Putnam City and Putnam City North soccer teams played for the annual Caldwell Cup Thursday night.
The Caldwell Cup is a traveling trophy awarded to both the winning boys and girls' soccer teams in memory of John Caldwell, an All-State soccer player and 1997 graduate of Putnam City.
Caldwell, who played soccer at Southern Nazarene University, died in a car accident in 2003.
“John was a teammate of mine on my club team growing up,” said Putnam City North girls coach Jake Kurey.
In addition to the games, the soccer teams from both high schools meet for dinner the night before each year.
“You get a couple of stares across the table,” Kurey said. “It's a fun night.”
ANOTHER SHOOTOUT IN EDMOND
Edmond Santa Fe defeated Edmond Memorial, 1-0, in a shootout Tuesday night, but that's nothing unusual when the Wolves and Bulldogs meet in soccer.
Six of the last eight contests between the teams have been decided in a shootout, said Santa Fe coach Joe Peeler.
“Our goalie (Chris Morgensen) had a really big save to start it off,” Peeler said.
Austin Place then scored on the last kick of the game, getting the ball by his former Santa Fe teammate — Memorial goalkeeper Evan Helker — who many consider the best goal keeper in the state.
Helker has signed with Oklahoma Christian University to play soccer. Place has signed with the University of Buffalo.
Santa Fe is now 3-0 on the season as Morgensen has recorded two shutouts.
The only goal scored against Morgensen this season came with 40 seconds left against Bishop McGuinness when the Wolves had reserves on the field, Peeler said.
