(Heart of Illinois ABC) - The 91st Illinois State Amateur concluded on Thursday in Wilmette and a pair of Central Illinois standouts finished in the top 3. Morton grad and University of Illinois star Tommy Kuhl finished second while Bloomington Central Catholic grad and Illinois State golfer Parker Wisdom finished tied for 3rd. University of Iowa golfer and Hinsdale native Mac McClear took home the title.

Pro softball made its way to Peoria on Thursday as the Women’s Professional Fastpitch League made a summer tour stop at Louisville Slugger. A sell-out crowd of 1,000 packed the stands to watch the USSSA Pride take on the Smash It Sports Vipers. Fans will get a chance to see the two teams matchup twice more on Friday and Saturday with college softball all-time home run leader and ESPY award winner Jocelyn Alo expected to play for the Vipers this weekend.

In high school sports, Normal West hosted another 7-on-7 event while volleyball teams played in the Illini Elite Summer League in Bloomington.

Plus, local basketball legends Shaun Livingston, Alec Peters and Carla McGhee reflect on just how much the sport has given them.
