PALMYRA, Mo. (WGEM) -- In today's world of technology there are plenty of distractions for high school athletes to be drawn to over the summer months.
It can be easy to log more hours playing NBA 2K13 on X-Box or Playstation than hours spent in the real gym.
Summer basketball across the Tri-States continues to stay on the up-swing and area coaches in attendance at Wednesday's 'Elite Shootout' in Palmyra are loving the dedication.
Starting on Thursday Palmyra will host the 'Big River Shootout' where there will be nearly 50 total games played by area teams through the weekend.
