Cool Under Pressure

Madison Chiera of Cold Spring defeated five other 12-year-olds to win her age group at the Hudson Valley Knights of Columbus Regional Free Throw Competition on March 12 at Lourdes High School in Poughkeepsie. She made 16 of 25 shots in the first round and then hit four of five to win a tiebreaker.

She will now head to the Downstate Championship on Saturday, March 18, in Cortlandt Manor. The winners there become eligible for the state finals to be held at West Point next month.
