Both of my elementary boysâ€™ teams won their tournaments at Monroe last week. I want to give a shout out to Monroe Coach Casey Hemphill. He did a great job running the tournament and coaching all those kids. Casey played basketball at Poteau back when Clint and Candeeda were in school, and he was one heck of a good player. Keep up the good work, Casey!
