Girls For Another Excellent Effort and Great Season
There is considerable history for past CHS Girls Basketball (state)
teams but I plan to keep the hardworking 2013 basketball ladies
as the main story until their run at a 5A state title is complete
later this week. The 1984 Collinsville Lady Cardinals were 3A
State Champs. -- Ted Wright 3/4/2013 -- GOOD LUCK LADIES!!

Collinsville Lady Cards (making their first State Tournament trip in a generation)
fell behind by 10 by the end of the first quarter before outscoring Deer Creek
34-26 in the next 3 quarters. The rally fell just short after Collinsville finally
tied the score at 40-40 with less than 45 seconds left in the game. Deer Creek
scored again but Collinsville couldn't get a shot off in the final 7.4 seconds.
