QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - The showdown is now set. The time has been confirmed. The two teams now just have to show up and play in Columbia, Illinois with the winner punching their first-class ticket to the Class 1A State Soccer Tournament That’s the scenario in from of both Quincy Notre Dame and Belleville-Althoff as the two squads collide on the turf this evening in a IHSA Super-Sectional showcase that will be well worth the price of admission at Columbia High School. We’ll check in with the “Blue and Gold” camp and get their thoughts on facing the defending state champs in the biggest game of the season for both respected soccer programs.

Their was certainly a buzz in the air surrounding Keokuk High School earlier today in Lee County, Iowa and it wasn’t due to all the construction going on outside the school’s doorways. The buzz was created thanks to two members of the KHS Class of 2022 signing National Letters Of Intent with Iowa Wesleyan University in Mount Pleasant, Iowa. That’s where Chiefs golf standout Nick Profeta is headed in the fall after signing his NLI just after 11:00 a.m. Profeta started playing golf as an 8-th grader in Keokuk and simply fell in love with the sport, and now he’s headed to the NAIA ranks to continue his career on the collegiate fairways.

Also signing with the Tigers of IWU this morning at Keokuk High was baseball standout Josh Wills. Wills is excited about heading to the college ranks where he hopes to help the Tiger program wherever he can. It could be on the mound, the infield, or the outfield because Josh certainly has that type of versatility and talent on the diamond. Wills also has a team first attitude which will be on display tonight at KHS as the Chiefs play host to Centerville with the future Tiger getting the starting nod on the mound. We’ll check in with both Profeta and Wills about just why they both decided to join the “IWU Family” next season.
