• Yukon standout Makayla Foy moves to Edmond Santa Fe

    Jacob Unruh | Updated: 4 hr ago

    Edmond Santa Fe girls basketball coach Paul Bass told The Oklahoman on Wednesday that sophomore Makayla Foy has moved away from Yukon and enrolled at Santa Fe. “It’s huge,” he said. “When I watched her play at Yukon she was a scoring fool. She knows the game real well. She’s not just a scorer, she’s a great defender. That’s two things that can make a player great. She’s going to help us tremendously.” Foy averaged 15.7 points per game last season at point guard for Yukon. She won’t be Edmond Santa Fe’s point guard with junior Jo’Nah Johnson returning, but she will take some pressure away from Johnson to score.

  • All-State baseball notebook: Norman North's Thomas Hughes has huge night for West

    BY JACOB UNRUH | Published: Tue, Jul 28, 2015

    TULSA — Norman North shortstop Thomas Hughes completed his high school career with just three home runs. That made the result of the first pitch he saw Tuesday that more surprising. Hughes hit a two-run home run in the first inning and finished the night by reaching base four out of five times to lead West to an 8-1 win over East in the annual large-school All-State baseball game at J.L. Johnson Stadium. “It was surreal, honestly,” Hughes said. “That (home run) was the last thing I expected. It was so much fun, especially with these guys.” Hughes, the son of Oklahoma coach Pete Hughes, finished 1-for-2 with three RBIs and three walks. For not having taken a live at-bat in two weeks, he was shocked at how well

  • Super 30: How Edmond Santa Fe's Calvin Bundage transformed into state's top recruit

    BY JACOB UNRUH | Published: Sat, Jul 25, 2015

    EDMOND — On a hot summer day two years ago, Cayman Bundage had his little brother broken and in tears, not in typical big brother fashion but as a mentor and workout partner. Bundage was back from his first season as an offensive lineman at Arizona. He was running two miles, but also dragging along Calvin Bundage, who was then about to enter his sophomore year as a short, pudgy baseball player who was turning away from football. “He’s crying,” Cayman Bundage said. “He said, ‘Man, I’m done. I ain’t running this,’ and then he ran inside.” It was that breaking point that led Calvin Bundage down a new path to prove people he could make it.

  • After running from basketball, former Oklahoma State standout Obi Muonelo hopes to give back through the sport

    BY JENNI CARLSON | Updated: Thu, Jul 16, 2015

    EDMOND — Obi Muonelo kicked his left leg out from under the table and proudly showed the scar that changed his life. "You wanna check it out?" he said. It starts just above his outside ankle and runs five or six inches straight up his leg, the aftermath of a complete fibula fracture and resulting surgery during his freshman season at Oklahoma State. Up until that point, he had his career mapped out. Spend a couple years in Stillwater. Jump to the league. Make millions. But after the injury, he knew basketball wasn't his future. These last couple years, Muonelo not only built up a thriving business that helps people market and brand themselves better but also pushed away from the sport he long loved.

  • How a former Edmond Santa Fe star boosted TCU into the College World Series

    Published: Fri, Jun 12, 2015

    Garrett Crain lists his hometown as Mustang, played high school baseball at Edmond Santa Fe and spent time at Rose State. Tomorrow he'll be in Omaha with his TCU, which opens College World Series play Sunday against LSU. And the Horned Frogs got their with a big assist from Crain. The senior infielder scored the winning run in TCU's 5-4, 16-inning victory over Texas A&M early Tuesday morning in the Super Regional finale. Here's how Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News reported it: "After seeing so many chances squandered and so many runners left on base, TCU senior Garrett Crain was focused on just one thing ...." Series berth “I knew we had to score somehow so I kept going,” Crain said of his dash from second base to score the game-winner. Catcher Evan Skoug hit the ball hard down the line. A&M third baseman Ronnie Gideon knocked it down behind the bag and bobbled it while Crain kept coming, running through a stop sign by third base coach Bill Mosiello. Gideon’s throw skipped past catcher Michael Barash as Crain scored, arms raised. “I was just thinking one thing,” said Crain, who walked to lead off the inning on a 10-pitch at bat. “In the 16th inning, I have to force something.”
