  • How a trip to Africa changed the Mustang cross country coach's life

    BY JENNI CARLSON | Published: Wed, Sep 16, 2015

    BETHANY — Mike McGarry wonders occasionally about what the little boy would have been like. If he would've been tall or short. If he would've liked to play outside or stay indoors. If he would've been shy or outgoing. If only McGarry could've saved him. Five years have passed since the Mustang High cross country coach went on a mission trip to Swaziland. Memories of an infant boy in a faraway African land remain today. McGarry knew the baby wouldn't survive, but in that moment, he knew he couldn't do anything to help either. Saturday is a chance to change that. McGarry is one of the organizers of the Swazi 5K, an event hosted by Bethany First Church of the Nazarene and Southern Nazarene.

  • Prep football: Mustang quarterback Chandler Garrett's path is no passing fancy

    BY JENNI CARLSON | Published: Thu, Sep 3, 2015

    CHANDLER GARRETT — No one embodies prep passing quite like Chandler Garrett. He plays for the program that has thrown the ball as much as any over the last two decades. He is one of the best players in the state, already committing to Wyoming. He is the face. Look at him now, though, and you would never guess what he has seen.

    In addition to Piedmont's Kassidy Scott, here are 10 softball players around the Oklahoma City area to watch this season:   Emily Cerny, Newcastle: Last year's Little All-City Player of the Year, Cerny is back following a season in which she struck out 337 batters to lead Newcastle to the Class 4A title. Kylie Dodson, Mustang: Tasked with the unenviable duty of following OU pitcher Jayden Chestnut, Dodson is a talented pitcher who got a lot of experience last year in preparation for this season. Kelsey Eropkin, Bethel: A speedster committed to Tulsa, Eropkin has been a big reason for Bethel's recent run of success. Last season, she stole 32 bases and scored 51 runs.

  • 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.”
