Sandlin led the Ram pitching staff with a 1.18 ERA in 47 1/3 innings of work. The Eastern Oklahoma State College signee posted a 5-0 record.

Towers, Foster and Inouye chosen for golf squads
Taylor Towers and Madison Foster were honored among golf’s elite high school seniors last week.
Towers and Foster were each named to the All-State East roster by the Oklahoma Coaches Association, which was recently anounced.
Towers concluded her career at Rejoice Christian as a four-time top-three finisher at state. The Missouri State signee was a state champion in 2017.
Foster led Owasso throughout the spring and earned All-State honors after finishing in a tie for ninth at the Class 6A state meet earlier this month. Foster was part of the Rams back-to-back state champion teams in 2016 and 2017.
On the boys side, Rejoice Christian’s Cole Inouye was named to the East squad.
The boys and girls All-State matches will be played July 22 at Cherokee Hills in Catoosa.
