"This event is held each year at the Show Me Center in Cape Girardeau, Missouri
on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University. This year was our fourth
and as you can see, we incorporated that into the design of our patch.
We had 99 teams play 165 full hour games in 2.5 days. We have five separate
courts running concurrently every hour. Saint Francis' Medical Center's Sports
Medicine program sponsors the event and also conducts free testing for the
National Athletic Training Program (NATP). Players and coaches who desire a
national comparison score for their age group in flexibility, explosive power,
lower body power, upper body strength, and body fat content can get tested
at the tournament and the results mailed to the coach afterwards."
Patch #659, added on March 7, 1998.
