Santa Fe claims another championship

JENKS — The Edmond Santa Fe volleyballers are ranked as the elite team in the state, and for good reason.

The Lady Wolfpack hitting machine just seems to put it in another gear every tournament. Saturday in Jenks, Santa Fe came away with yet another title, this time over Owasso with Jenks winding up third. The Wolves swept Owasso 25-20, 25-16 and 25-9 to haul off the top tournament brass.

“We played very well in our last regular season tournament,” Santa Fe skipper Will Ethridge said. “The girls stepped up and played with a high level of energy.”

The Lady Wolves did not lose a game and no one came closer than 25-20 as Santa Fe chalked up 18 successive wins beginning with Norman, Broken Arrow, Cascia Hall, Norman North, Jenks and then Owasso in the finals.

Santa Fe climbs to 24-1 as Jordan Spence was named the Most Valuable Player. She supplied 58 kills in the tournament, sported an attack percentage of .510 and led the Wolves in blocking with 14 along with Aeriel Jackson.

Teammate Taylor Horton, who was named to the All-Tournament Team along with fellow Lady Wolf Bailey Otto, served up 14 aces.

Santa Fe’s Kaleo Kanahele posted 90 set assists and Samantha Ethridge came away with 56 digs.

Santa Fe hosts Edmond Memorial tonight at 6:30.
