Removing the 'thorn': South Callaway girls enjoying historic season

MOKANE --- The South Callaway Lady Bulldogs won the school's first conference basketball championship in 1990.

There's a banner in the gym to honor the accomplishment, and rightly so.

You're probably wondering ... So? Good question.

Well, it's not much of an accomplishment, anymore. It's just the opposite.

Because it hadn't happened since.

"That banner on our wall from 1990," Darren Humphrey said, "has been a thorn in our side forever."

Forever is finally over.

It wasn't quite the drought the Chicago Cubs or Philadelphia Eagles endured, but the 28-year wait has come to an end --- the Lady Bulldogs completed a perfect roll through the Show-Me Conference on Tuesday night with a 84-33 rout of Linn in Mokane.

Time for another banner.

That, however, is just the latest chapter in this book of South Callaway's historic, amazing season. This team hasn't been good, it's been perfect --- 23-0 and counting.

Simply fabulous. How?
