The Missouri state Special Olympics kicks off Saturday.
Because of scheduling conflicts, the Special Olympics state area basketball tournament had to be moved from the Baldwin area to Neosho schools. Ten schools traveled all across the state to compete in individual and team skills, along with 3 on 3 and full court games.
Coordinators of the tournament were thrilled to bring this tournament to the area.
"We love to have the town people. We love to have everyone come see us, and show what we have and give the community the chance to see what we're doing" says Keith Patterson.
Winners of today's tournament will head to the Special Olympics regional tournament in Joplin next week.
