    From the Middletown Journal: ‘Casey Popplewell will be the new coach of the Hornets, Monroe Athletic Director Dave Bauer said Tuesday, April 27. "He’s been there 12 years. He knows what he’s doing and he’s ready," Bauer said. "He’s paid his dues. Casey is very disciplined, very organized and he knows his basketball." "We are very pleased to have such a high quality candidate," Monroe Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Lolli said. "We look forward to him working with the Monroe basketball program." Popplewell has been a coach in the Mason system since 1998. He’s been a varsity assistant the last five years and also has served as a head coach at the eighth grade, freshman and junior varsity level. This will be his first stint as a varsity head coach. "It’s a great opportunity," said Popplewell, who will teach junior high English. "It was attractive to me because I live in the community. I’m excited about the upcoming summer and turning it around up there. Popplewell and his wife, Holly, his son, Chase, 8, and his daughter, Chandler, 5, reside in Monroe.’

Pulse-Journal Quotes:
    Coach Ullrey: "I’ve seen a lot of improvement this year. We were missing our middle hitters during the break, but ever since we’ve got the whole team together, we’ve really had some great chemistry. It’s pretty encouraging as we head into the second half of the season. We’ve had  some guys really come through, even though we are still looking for some leaders to step up."

    Coach Ullrey, regarding his brand new junior setter Pat McIntosh: "He’s really come through for us. That’s probably the hardest position on the floor."

    Ken Meibers: "I am writing this letter to announce that I am not re-applying for the head football coaching position at Monroe High School. After much thought and debate, I have made the decision to spend additional time with my family. The effectiveness of this decision is immediate."
