CentralIllinoisKnights.1lr The Central Illinois Knights have started the season in championship form, winning two consecutive tournaments.

KELSO, Mo. – The 2015 Kelso Klassic, featuring 14 of the top men’s fastpitch softball teams from Illinois, Missiouri and Kansas runs from June 12-14 and opens Friday night at 7:30 with hometown Kelso Fastpitch taking on Sibley Fastpitch, followed with the Central Illinois Knights battling Bowen Fastpitch.

The tournament continues through Saturday with the championship game scheduled for Sunday at 3 p.m. If a second game is needed in the double knockout format to determine a winner, it is slated to begin at 4:30.

The 2014 defending champion Bloomington, Ill. Stix return and figure to be in the running for back-to-back titles. But the road to the title won’t be easy as the Central Illinois Knights figure to be a strong contender after starting the season strong with championships in the Teutopolis Memorial Day and Terry Deering Memorial tournaments.

Other challengers include the Topeka Toros, currently ranked No. 18 in the world by the International Softball Congress, and the 2014 NAFA World Series A Division champion Bowen Fastpitch.
