  • Track & field: SCHS boys win, Collins 3rd at KCD Invitational

    "When she asked me to write a letter for her, I could've written five pages about her," Buchert said. "I felt very fortunate and blessed this year to have Kassie on my team."

    Next season, though, Bruner will play for Union College. She signed with the school Monday afternoon in Collins’ library.

    That's the historical context Collins teacher Phil Bell was trying to stress to his AP Government class on Monday.

    Bell, who often works current events into his lesson plans, spent the entire period on bin Laden and the news Monday.
