Linsey Curtis Captures SAC Conference
Player of the Week Award
I hadn't had a chance to check the RSU Sports info (below) before hearing from Linsey Curtis' Mom & Dad to inform me she did break the RSU home run record this weekend and provided this link from the NAIA SAC conference with similar info to the RSU story below. -- Ted Wright 3/15/2010
Curtis Captures Conference Player of the Week Award
Rogers State freshman Linsey Curtis has been named the Sooner Athletic Conference Softball Player of the Week for March 8-14.
The Collinsville, Okla., product hit .409 with four home runs and 12 RBI while leading the Hillcats to a 5-1 record last week. Curtis has already rewritten the RSU record books just 24 games into her first collegiate season. She has amassed a record 15 home runs and is hitting .447 on the season with 50 RBI.
Curtis had a 1.000 slugging percentage last week with four dingers, a double and six runs scored. She needs just seven more RBI to break the school single-season record. Curtis shattered Jenny Johnsons mark for homers with two long balls against No. 21 William Penn Friday afternoon in Springfield, Mo. She currently ranks second in the NAIA in home runs behind Lubbock Christians Kim Frazier with 20.
Rogers State (19-5) returns to action next week with home dates on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Hillcats will play Northwestern Oklahoma State Tuesday at 2 p.m. and Lubbock Christian Wednesday at 5 p.m.

City Jail Plans Approved
|Plans for adding a new jail extention to the Collinsville Police Station at 11th and Center were approved by the City Commission Monday March 15, 2010. Architect Jim Graber presented the plans to the commission and said documents should be ready to go out for bids soon for this city improvement funded by the city sales tax increase that began in July 31, 2009. The city has been without a jail since the Dec. 1, 2001 City Hall fire with Owasso housing Collinsville prisoners on a fee agreement since then.|
ODOT Walkthrough - Streetscape Phase II
|Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT), City & LandPlan officials walked the two blocks of Main Street between 13th to 12th & 10th to 9th comparing plans to actuals. Those two block will soon be upgraded (new sidewalks, trees, center turn lane, flowers and irrigation, etc...) to match the phase I work done between 12th & 10th completed in May 2009. The recent city sales tax increase helped seed the process of receiving federal TEA-21 funds to make the improvements.|
|I ran a photo a few days of "signs" of businesses closing but as always in Collinsville change also includes new businesses arriving. Two new doctors have opened offices in the Family Pharmacy & Clinic building at 12th & Main. The sign says Dr. Crain and Dr. Ingram are accepting new patients.|

Park Softball Field Improvements Approved
|Work will begin soon in the City Park to improve long-time drainage and lighting problems at the softball field there. The City Commission accepted bids Monday March 15, 2010 for those two improvements. It is hoped the improvements can be in place to allow use by the Collinsville Girls Softball teams for league and tournament play starting in April.|
