Tulsa women's soccer inks 8 to 2013 squad

TULSA —  Tulsa Head Women's Soccer Coach Kyle Cussen announced the signing of eight players for the 2013 freshman class, including Katelyn Admire, Lana Bermel, Darienne Chapman, Marleigh Essler, Sierra Krenik, Claire Maris, Annette Sohmer and Olivia Viergutz.

"We lost four out of the five defensive players to graduation from a year ago, so this year's class was geared towards replacing our back line," Cussen said. "We brought in players who are use to competing and winning at a very high level, including four players who have played for a national championship, and players who have a very strong work ethic. This is a solid class that will help us build for the future."

A 5-6 defender from Tulsa, Okla., Chapman is a three-year letterwinner at Bishop Kelley High School, leading her team to three Oklahoma 5A State Championships, while Maris is a 5-7 defender, from Tulsa's Union High School. The duo play club soccer for the TSC Hurricane, winning six state championships, and finished as the 2011 ECNL National Runner-Up, won the 2011 Regional Championship and qualified for nationals in 2012.

A 5-7 defender from Huntington Beach, Calif., Krenik was a four-year letterwinner at Edison High School where she was a first-team all-league honoree three times, was named as the Defensive MVP of the Sunset League once and was a second-team all-county selection once. She also played club soccer for the Slammers FC U17, winning the 2012 ECNL National Championship, the 2011 Surf Cup and was a finalist for the 2011 Slammer Club and 2010 Nike Cup.

Bermel, a 5-3 midfielder also from Huntington Beach, Calif., was a four-year letterwinner at Huntington Beach High School and was a first-team all-league performer. She was also a member of the Slammers FC U18, which won the 2012 Slammers Cup and 2011 Summers Surf Cup, and finished as finalists in the 2009, 2011 and 2012 Surf College Cup, and 2009 Slammers Cup.

    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.
