Verdigris’ Hanslovan highlights All-Tulsa World Girls Soccer Team

Risenhoover named Coach of the Year

VERDIGRIS — Since taking over the Verdigris girls soccer program, head coach Stacy Risenhoover has built a state champion powerhouse.

For the fourth-straight year, Risenhoover guided the Lady Cardinals to the Class 4A state title. On Tuesday, Risenhoover was honored with the All-Tulsa World Girls Soccer Coach of the Year.

Under Risenhoover, the Lady Cardinals won their final 14 games in a row by a 68-6 margin.

Two key senior leaders — Caitlyn Hanslovan and Aubrey Lindsey — played an integral role over the last four years in continuing the winning tradition in Verdigris.

Hanslovan, a four-year starting forward, and Lindsey, a four-year starting sweeper, received first-team All-Tulsa World recognition.

Both Hanslovan and Lindsey also were named to the Class 4A All-State team this past season. Hanslovan led Verdigris with 21 goals and 18 assists, while Lindsey anchored a defense that posted 10 shutouts.

Hanslovan will continue her soccer career at Oral Roberts University, while Lindsey will compete for Missouri Southern State University.

Claremore’s Katelin Teter also earned first-team All-Tulsa World honors after leading the Lady Zebras to the Class 5A state semifinals. The Northeastern State signee was a two-year captain and scored 12 goals with 12 assists this season.

Other first-team All-Tulsa World recipients were: Anna Beffer (midfielder, Tulsa Union); Kaja Cremin (midfielder, Tulsa Edison); Kylie Dellis (midfielder, Glenpool); Jensen Hecht (defender, Catoosa); Madison Stuckey (forward, Skiatook); Hannah Warner (goalkeeper, Owasso) and Kristin Woldtvedt (defender, Broken Arrow).

Claremore forward Taylor Williams and Oologah defender Addy Pritchard represented Rogers County on the All-Tulsa World second team.

Honorable mention All-Tulsa World honors went to the following players: Carlie Cook (midfielder, Cascia Hall); Tana Dake (forward, Claremore Sequoyah); Taylor Beck (forward, Verdigris); Jade Graves (goalkeeper, Verdigris); Summer Witt (forward, Verdigris) and Kaytlan Zabonik (defender, Verdigris).

Summit Christian’s Jordan Langebartels netted 48 goals in 15 games to earn All-Tulsa World Player of the Year.

    When Claremore’s Matt Whatley takes his place behind the plate tonight in the Oklahoma Coaches Association Large School East-West All-State baseball game, the former Zebra catcher will be right at home.
    Whatley, who started four years as the catcher for the Zebras, finds his final high school baseball game taking place in his future college ballpark.
    Last November, Whatley and his long-time friend, Bryce Howe, signed NCAA Division I baseball scholarships to play for the Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles.
    Tonight, those dreams come true for Whatley and Jenks outfielder Cadon Owens, who will be joining his former Bearcats teammate on the East squad. Also, Verdigris' Ryan Skalnik will start at third base for the Large East All-State team.
