|Knights of Columbus free throw winners named|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Kids ages 10-14 participated in the Knights of Columbus free throw contest Sunday, Feb. 12 at HHS. This year’s contest drew 13 participants.
Contestants shot 15 free throws for the local competition and 25 for the district competition. Because Holyoke’s Knights of Columbus council is the only one in the district to hold a free throw contest, Holyoke’s local winners were also deemed the district winners.
Winners in Sunday’s contest who will advance to the state competition include Shianne Willmon, 10-year-old girl; Kaitlyn Shafer, 13-year-old girl; Gunnar Kroeger, 12-year-old boy; and Austin Herman, 13-year-old boy.
