Lady Mules quarterfinal previewPosted Saturday, March 6, 2010, at 8:30 AM
Here's some info for fans headed up to St. Louis today to see the Poplar Bluff Lady Mules play Incarnate Word Academy in the MSHSAA Class 5 quarterfinal.
The game will be held at the UMSL Mark Twain Athletic & Fitness Center. You can find it here and get directions.
Doors open at 5 p.m. and tickets are $6.
If you don't go, you can listen to the game online here.
I may try to provide updates throughout the game, however, I've got to borrow a PC laptop since mine is an iBook from 1995 and I'm not sure about internet access. I may be able to talk my wife giving updates on her phone, so we could have a guest bloger.
Here's the rosters for both teams and some game notes:
INCARNATE WORD RED KNIGHTS
Record: 27-1. Coach: Dan Rolfes.
POPLAR BLUFF MULES
Record: 19-8. Coach: Kirk Chronister.
Notes: This is Poplar Bluff's first quarterfinal appearance since 2005 when the Lady Mules lost to Nerinx Hall, 44-36. Poplar Bluff has lost its last two quarterfinal games, last reaching the final four in 2002. ... Poplar Bluff is 1-2 against IWA, winning in 2002 and losing in 2005 and last season, 59-48. ... IWA has won two state titles, 2006 and 1995, and finished second in 2008. Last season, the Red Knights lost to St. Joseph's Academy in the district final, their last loss to a Missouri team. ...
