Jays fly past Poplar Bluff, share conference crown

Sunday, February 22, 2009

CHARLESTON -- After failing to reach the SEMO Conference tournament's final day for the first time in three years earlier this season, expectations for a Charleston conference championship later in the season were not in the Bluejays favor.

Good thing Charleston didn't live up to expectations.

They pummeled the visiting Poplar Bluff Mules on Friday night 72-56 to take part in sharing the SEMO Conference title with the Sikeston Bulldogs.

"We started out in the SEMO Conference tournament and we didn't even place," Charleston had coach Danny Farmer said. "We didn't even make it to the final night."
