|CARDINAL FOOTBALL -- JR.HIGH UPDATE -- 9-20-13|
The Collinsville Cardinals Jr. High Football teams traveled to the home of the Bishop Kelley Comets Thursday night for a Metro Lakes Conference contest. A harvest moon beamed through the over cast skies down to the battle field of play as the Cardinals and the Comets slugged it out.
In the 7th grade contest, the Cardinals could never get anything going on offense or defense. The Comets had big backs that the Cardinals could just not bring down. Those big backs of the Comets were also linebackers on defense which were hard to block. The results, Comets win 30-0. No physical injuries were reported, just our pride. We will get better.
The 8th grade contest was one of the best performances our Cardinals have put together. The 8th grade team controlled the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball all night long. The O-Line created lanes for our backs to hit it up in there, and our backs ran with great toughness. On the defensive side of the ball, the Cardinals gang tackled the Comets running backs all night. The Comets had two big plays for the night that resulted in touchdowns. Comets win 16-14. No injuries were reported. We are getting better!
The ninth graders contest with a score of Cardinals 20 and Comets 2 does not represent a true picture of the contest. Our freshmen were short a couple of key players due to injuries and the entire team answered to the coaches challenge put towards them early in the week. The challenge was who will step forward. The Cardinal defense was outstanding, and still has not been scored upon this season. The engineering of the offense was exciting to watch as the Cardinals blew out the Comets tail. No injuries were reported.
Injury update: Barrett Matlock, 8th grader, had knee surgery from a practice collision. Chandler Cole, 9th grader, should return this week from an ankle injury received playing pick up basketball. Blake Burd, 9th grader, will miss at least another week due to a concussion. We wish these players a quick recovery
Our next action will be Thursday, September 26, against Metro Lakes Conference opponent the Tahlequah Tigers. Games are at Sallee Field beginning at 5pm
On Tuesday, October 8 we have an opportunity to make our schools a safer and better place for our kids. Please take a moment to watch this video. http://tinyurl.com/m2499ph

|Korean War Veteran To Visit Middle School Current Events Class|
On Wednesday, September
25th, George Banasky, Command Chief Master Sergeant ANG/USAF Retired,
who was with the 18th Fighter Wing in Korea from 1950 to 1953, will
be speaking to Mrs. Rowden's Current Events classes at Collinsville
Middle School. George, and 85 other Korean War veterans, recently received
the Ambassador for Peace medal from South Korean Ambassador Sukbum Park,
the consul-general for the Republic of Korea's Houston consulate, at
the Claremore Veterans' Center.
Thank you for coming and doing the presentation last week. The students enjoyed it very much and remembered much of it after the class. I appreciate your having taken two hours out of your week to do that. The students especially enjoyed the photos of themselves and I hope you and I made the point stick for them that the things they are doing at school and in Collinsville are truly a part of history! Thanks again! It was a great class!
|Ted Wright Note: I had the honor of presenting a Collinsville slideshow and speaking to Mrs. Rowden's classes last week. The topics ranged from Collinsville and newspaper history, to today's happenings (including their activities at Collinsville schools) which are current events today but tomorrow's history.|
