Twelve youth participated in the annual Knights of Columbus Free Throw competition on February 23rd that was held in the Acorn gym. Both the Local and District competitions were completed. Each contestant at the Local level fired off 15 shots at basket and at the District level, 25 shots on goal.
In addition, all of our winners have been invited to attend the State Competition to be held in Morrilton on March 29th, 2020.
This competition is held every winter. It gives the youth of the surrounding communities the opportunity to learn healthy competition and the benefits of exercise. It is provided at no cost to participants and prizes are awarded in addition to bragging rights!
Thank you for all who participated!
