All 2012 Collinsville Cardinal football players & cheerleaders (1st-12th grade) were introduced to their "fans" Thursday night August 16, 2012 (also the first day of school). Individual team photos will appear on cvilleok in coming weeks. -- Ted Wright 8/16/2012 8:45pm

The CHS Varsity Volleyball team played Lincoln Christian (ranked #8 in 5a) tonight and lost 18-25, 12-25, and 17-25. -- Toni Slagle (8/16/2012)
I have intentionally under-emphasized the rehosted school web site ( from the cvilleok side recently (as it has been in such transition for the past month ... i.e. a mess). But with the first day of school and some significant progress in getting things cleaned up there, I will be relying more on the combination of cvilleok & the school site for the community. I'm still refining the plan, but the basics are: cvilleok remains an archival site (i.e. photos and text posted here remain and are archived monthly). The school site will have a lot of fixed information that remains, but other data (only some of which is duplicated on cvilleok) will be replaced periodically with fresher dynamic photos and text. As always, your comments and suggestions are appreciated. -- Ted Wright -- August 16, 2012 -- (email: or
