Results of 2017 Knights of Columbus Free Throw Contest

Three girls and six boys from New Rockford, ages 9 to 14, were named local champions of the 2017 Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship. Local Council #2477 in New Rockford sponsored the competition at the New Rockford High School Gymnasium on Sunday, January 22.

All youngsters ages 9 to 14 were eligible to participate. There were also 2nd and 3rd place winners awards given out.

Each contestant was allowed 15 free throw attempts in the contest. Ties were settled by successive rounds of five free throws per contestant until a winner emerged. All winners advanced to the District Shoot Off which was held in Carrington on Jan. 29th.

There were 19 participants in all. Thanks to everyone who participated.

A special Thank You to Kristy O'Connor, Ron Dockter and Brian Hopfauf for all their help. Also a BIG Thank You to the New Rockford School for the use of the gym.
