Varsity Softball Win Over Grove

4-0 Win To Start 2016 Season
Check back for 7th grade volleyball photos from Tuesday New teachers reported Friday (August 12)
FYI -- I'm seeing "road closed" signs being staged near the ends of the block of 19th Street between Broadway and Oak for some road repair / asphalting soon? (And perhaps other locations?) Also seeing some survey work for Center Street near the Post Office but expect that road closure is much further down the schedule. -- Ted -- 8/10/2016 -- {I had seen the county asphalt machinery on 156th St. N. near Memorial Monday evening}

If/when I get better organized you should be able to get quicker live sports updates on Twitter (for example: Collinsville Softball 4-0 win over Grove to open the 2016 season. Volleyball girls beat Skiatook 3 games to 1 (8/9/2016). I'll have to take a failing grade on my first live test as the "School's Twitter Guy" as I left the softball game without posting the results and went back to volleyball and it was nearly over before I remembered I should have been tweeting. Then discovered my phone was locked up. So it was 8pm (back at my desktop computer) before I had anything posted anywhere. I'll get better. -- Ted 8:15pm -- by the way the 7th grade girls also beat Skiatook but our freshman lost. I have no results for 8th or JV volleyball. -- August 9, 2016 -- [Kathy Trost reports the JV won also]
