CHS Football -vs- East Central
Collinsville Wins 4th In A Row With District Win
55-34 Over East Central
5 McElroy & 3 Haymaker TDs
TV Channel 6 broadcast from Collinsville High School early Friday morning and presented their spirit stick to Collinsville (which had last been decorated by Sperry).
I haven't counted them all yet but the seniors and their families stretched nearly the length of Sallee Field at the Senior Night pre-game ceremony. I have individual photos which will appear on their cvilleok senior pages in May 2014. -- Ted

Zane McElroy (#4) had good blocking on this play in Collinsville's second possession.
The 2013 CHS Softball Lady Cardinals were recognized at the end of the first quarter.
