Three of the eight players sent by Loretto Council No. 536 to the district competition for the Knights of Columbus annual free-throw competition have advanced to the regionals.
At the districts, which took place Feb. 16 in Fishkill, Marisa Peters shot 11 for 25 in the 9-year-old girls’ bracket; William Bradley hit 19 of 25 in the 12-year-old boys’ bracket; and Marisa Scanga made 19 of 25 to win the 13-year-old girls’ bracket.
The three sharpshooters will next compete on March 4 in the regional tournament at Our Lady of Lourdes High School in Poughkeepsie.Did you find this article useful or informative?
