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,
