KAHOKA, Mo. (WGEM) -- Sunday night marks the 10th annual Senior Softball Salute, where Illinois and Missouri will meet in a battle of the best high school softball players in our area.
Even though the Show Me State leads the all-time series, they feel like they have something to prove.
With Missouri being on the losing end of every area all-star game this year across all-sports, Adam Rung's team says they want to change that on Sunday.
Keep in mind, Missouri plays it's softball throughout the fall season, while Illinois just wrapped it up on the diamond in the spring.
However, you won't find any excuses from this Missouri squad.
"We've got good athletes that'll pick it up, and good softball players that enjoy game and they're competitive," said Rung.
"I think they're going to want to go out and give their best performance. "
"I don't think it's going to hurt us too bad," Van Nostrand added.
"It's kind of like riding a bike, you get back on and you know how to do it."
"We'll be fine," said Brianne Caldwell.
"I mean once you play softball, you're a softball player for life."
Sunday's game will be played at Harry Phillips Field in Quincy, with the first game of the doubleheader starting at 5:00 PM.
Tickets at $3 dollars for adults, and $1 dollar for children.
