The bracket is set, and we're now looking to see who will be voted as the face of Springfield area sports.
Thirty-two of the greatest athletes in the history of the area have been selected and will face off in a weeklong tournament that will ultimately determine who Springfield thinks is the face of athletics in the area.
We received much more than 32 nominees. All were considered by a panel within the News-Leader staff. Selected nominees were put into four different regions and put in a "randomizer" to generate first-round matchups.
Votes will only be accepted online at News-Leader.
