-- Jr. High Update (Skiatook) -- 10-18-17
Cardinals Jr. High football teams traveled west on Highway 20 for the
Highway 20 Bowl and a Metro Lakes Conference contest. Our freshman team
and our 8th grade team were playing for a conference title and undefeated
season. The night was full of hard hitting, smash mouth football. Each
contest was a special event. The 7th grade game was a hard hitting contest
also with ups and downs.
The Metro Lakes Conference teams are: Collinsville, Coweta, Claremore,
Glenpool, Grove, Pryor, Tahlequah, and Skiatook. Many coaches considered
this 5A conference to be the most competitive 5A conference in Oklahoma.
Collinsville 7th grade lose a tough one 30-8. No injuries were reported.
The 7th grade finish the season with a 5-3 record.
Collinsville 8th grade are Metro Lakes Conference Champion with an 8-6
win. The 8th grade finish 8-0. Cannon Howard left the game with a hip
injury. We wish him a speedy recovery.
Collinsville 9th lose a tough one 14-0. The 9th grade finish 7-1. No
injuries were reported.
I would like to congratulate the Skiatook 9th grade team on their Metro
Lakes Conference Title.
With the close of our season I want to say thank you to so many, the
coaches and their families for their sacrifices while coaching these
young athletes, the parents for having to arrange transportation each
morning at 7am for practice, and having trust in our coaches to coach
your son, our Quarterback Club, Mrs. Jeannie Smalygo and our M.S. Cheerleaders
for their support each week, our student assistants for having water
and first aid for our players, our chain crews, press box workers, administrators,
our great teachers, and the Cardinal Family for all the great support.
