|Cardinal Football -- JR. High Update 8/31/12|
The Collinsville Cardinals have been flying pretty high lately, but the Bartlesville Bruins swatted us down Thursday night in our home opener at Sallee Field. The 6A Bruins demonstrated a polished option attack on the ground and executed an effective aerial assault all night.
The 7th grade Cardinals battled the Bruins to a 6-6 overtime tie. Metro Lakes Conference rules in Jr. High permit one overtime period. Hopefully this rule will be modified in the near future. The 7th grade showed a tremendous amount of courage throughout the contest. No injuries were reported.
In the 8th grade contest, the Cardinal offense could not get any consistency throughout the hard-hitting battle. Our defense was kept off balance with the option game mixed in well with the passing attack of the Bruins. Bruins win 20-6. No injuries were reported.
The final contest of the night was a contest of big plays by both sides. Our 9th grade quickly fell behind 2 TDs . After the dust cleared, our 9th grade began to show we can move the ball and put it into the zone. The freshmen showed tremendous effort all night. It was a hard fought contest for both teams. Bruins win 48-19. No injuries were reported.
The Cardinals will take Labor Day off and then begin to prepare for our first Metro Lakes Conference opponent, the Claremore Zebras. We travel to Claremore Thursday. Games begin at 5:00. Hope to see everyone there.
The morning practices have been outstanding. With cooler temperatures, our players have been very attentive during practice. A GREAT BIG thank you to the parents for having your sons here on time. We know our parents are making a sacrifice. Stay in touch if you have any questions.

|Collinsville FFA Attend OSUs BIG THREE.|
(L-R): Michaela Branen, Corbin Bell, and Austin Roberts
Every summer Oklahoma
State University hosts one of the largest field days in the nation where
thousands of FFA and 4H members compete in livestock judging events.
Big Three Field Days consists of 3 days of judging camp. During these
three days students practice judging cattle, swine, sheep, and goats
for a chance to be the high scoring team. Other events are held in conjunction
with Big Three such as cattle fitting clinics, tours of
local agriculture based businesses, and a cattle grading contest.
This summer three FFA members from the Collinsville FFA Chapter were able to attend Big Three. FFA members attending were Michaela Branen, Austin Roberts, and Corbin Bell. Scores varied over the course of the camp however, Collinsville FFA placed 88th overall out of over 250 teams!
