I didn't make the trip to Claremore Friday night but watched (on CollinsvilleCardinalTV) the Basketball Lady Cards come out strong in the second half and turn a 5 point half time deficit into an 18 point advantage at the final buzzer (58-40). And as usual, a great job by Cody & Hunter and the rest of the CardinalTV crew. -- Ted 8pm 2/8/2013
The CHS Basketball Boys also won (44-38) over Claremore. -- Ted 9:40pm
Unofficial report that CHS Girls beat Oologah and Boys lost Feb. 9th while I was at Dual State -- Ted
