The Collinsville varsity boys pulled away from the Tahlequah boys for a 58-47 victory. The homecoming coronation was during half-time of the boys game.
2017 CHS Basketball Queen Darci Chester & King Tanner Curtis
Young Cooper Chronister decided he would rather hang out with Mom & Dad than be the crown bearer with the big kids and all those crazy people with cameras. Maybe next year?
Young flower girl Henley Olazagasti was just as reluctant as Cooper was during the rehersals but came through like a champion for the formal coronation festivities.

The 5A #6 ranked Tahlequah girls then went on a 8-0 run and had the Collinsville girls on their heals the rest of the evening. Skiatook, Claremore & Coweta remain on the regular season schedule.
