“If you like high school basketball, then you will love this shootout!”



The second annual Route 66 Shootout Pulaski County USA will be held Dec. 20 and 21 at Waynesville High School with 19 teams playing 13 games in the shootout.

“If you like high school basketball, then you will love this shootout,” says WHS Athletic Director Josh Scott. “Fans who came last year saw more slam dunks, fast breaks and unique drives than they would during regular-season games, and this year will be even more exciting with more games and more teams competing. Word spread very quickly about this shootout.”

The Waynesville R-VI School District and the Pulaski County Tourism Bureau have partnered to produce this outstanding event. In addition to local teams, teams from Chicago, St. Louis and Kansas will participate in the unparalleled high school basketball hoops action.

On Friday, Dec. 20, games begin at 1 p.m. with the final game of the evening starting at 8:30 p.m. On Saturday, Dec. 21, the games begin at 11 a.m. and continue to the last game, which begins at 8 p.m.

“Some of the best teams in the Missouri have been paired to bring unbeatable competition,” Scott says. “These teams are accustomed to making playoffs and want the extra play time to hone their skills.”

College recruiters will find places in the stands to study their top recruits.

“We especially appreciate the Pulaski County Tourism Bureau for partnering with us as our major sponsor to make this tournament a reality,” Scott says. “We are also thankful for the area businesses who will help make this shootout a reality by helping to feed the teams and providing their support.”

The cost for admission to each day of the shootout is $7 for adults and $5 for students. Athletic passes will not be accepted for this special event. Game programs will be for sale for $2 each. They cover the teams, their rosters, records, coaches, records and more.
