March 26, 2018

2018 is the 10th year that The Knights of Columbus have held a Free Throw Challenge. The number of kids participating in this free event has grown from 21 to 52 this year.

Boys and girls aged 9 to 13 compete for highest percentage of free throws sunk. This year eleven winners were eligible to compete in the District Challenge, then the Regionals and finally the State challenge.

Don Marden, above, runs the event for the Knights. Don played basketball in high school and college and has been active as a referee in many sports for years.

Awards were made before friends, family and members of the Knights of Columbus. Don announced that the district and regionals have been completed and Eva Bergloff (14) and Tyler Mottor (10) qualified for the state challenge scheduled for April 14, 2018 at Anna Marie College in Paxton, Mass.

Seven champions were able to attend the awards ceremony, including Kiera Lucas, age 9 above,

Alessio Pinci, also age 9.

Tyler Mottor, age 10, won his age group here and in the Districts and Regional competitions.

Erin Kampersal is our champion in the 11 year old bracket.

Makayla McHugh was high scorer among the 11 year old girls.

The 12 year old boys group was won this year by Joseph Gentile.

T.J. Kiley, age 13, earned his trophy in the 13 year old boys group.

Congratulations to all the participants in the 2018 Saint Mary's Knights of Columbus Free Throw Challenge.

The Much-anticipated Mudville Traffic Study is Here!

by Chris Cain

When I studied science in school (in addition to reading, writing, and 'rithmetic of course), the professor would say, "In God We Trust, All Others Bring Data." Holliston's Board of Selectmen must have gone to the same school because they wanted data before considering any traffic volume and speed mitigation strategies in Mudville. The McMahon group recently delivered their 104 page report to the Selectmen (and to the public via the town's website). https://www.townofholliston.us/sites/hollistonma/files/uploads/mcmahon_mudville_traffic_pattern_analysis_memo_2018-11-07.pdf Rather than having everyone read the entire report, below are some of the data presented in a 'did you know' format. Did you know the current speed limit on all streets in Mudville is exactly the same as on Route 16 in downtown Holliston - 30 mph. Looking at the compilation photo above, what might strike you - besides that there are no speed limit signs anywhere in Mudville?
