(WQOW)- The high school state softball and baseball championships are upon us, and it's going to be a week that many western Wisconsin athletes will remember forever.

Several local teams will get their shot at glory in both sports. Many freshman are making their first run at it, while many seniors make their final trips. The kids want nothing more than to raise the trophy with their teams, but coaches say they just want them to soak it all in.

"The goal is a state championship," said Mason Kostka, Regis baseball utility player. "But we want to have fun doing it too."

"I just want them to enjoy the moment," said Andy Niese, Regis baseball head coach. "It just doesn't happen that often. It's really hard to get to Appleton, and to make it through this gauntlet of games that you have to survive."

Below is a breakdown of this week's tournament schedule including local teams:
