Eleven boys and girls from the area, ages 9 to 14, were named local champions of the 2015 Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship held Saturday, January 24, and have earned the right to compete at the district level. The St. Francis of Assisi Council 5218 in Verdigre sponsored the local competition at Verdigre School gymnasium. All youngsters ages 9 to 14 were eligible to participate. Deacon Keith Pavlik was happy to report that there was a record number of 21 contestants.

Nine-year-old champion for the girls was Ava Chohon. There were no boys signed up to compete in that bracket. Alexis Bartling was the 10-year-old girls’ champion and Walker Kotrous won for the boys. In the 11-year-old bracket, Chaney Konopasek won for the girls and Rane Vesely for the boys. Twelve-year-old winners were Abby Frank and Max Hollmann. Rachel Pavelka and Hunter Kotrous took the honors for the 13-year-olds. Ashlyn Hamilton and Anthony Vakoc won the 14-year-old competition.

The Knights of Columbus is most grateful to Verdigre Public School for the use and preparation of the gym and basketball equipment.
