Free Throw Competition Draws Dozens of Contestants
Published on Monday, 09 January 2012 16:20
The Knights of Columbus national free-throw competition attracts thousands of contestants every year. Saturday, the first local contestants participated in the event at the Donahue Academy gym, with eight of them moving on to the next step -- the district-level competition.
Event organizer Don Stuller said more than 25 contestants from Ave maria, Immokalee and Golden Gate Estates participated. The contest was open to all boys and girls ages 10-14.
Each contestant had to shoot 15 free throws and the first-place winners received a plaque as well as the chance to compete at the district level.
"This was our first free throw contest, the kids had a good time and I know we will have more contestants every year," Mr. Stuller said.
The winners were:
Girls 10 years: Teresa Guerra Girls 12 years: Monet Burkett Girls 14 years: Ann Guernsey
Boys 10 years: Daniel Ledesma Boys 11 years: Jonathen Ortegon Boys 12 years: Roger Mendez Boys 13 years: Mitchell Watts Boys 14 years: Victor Velesquez
