Knights of Columbus Crown Free Throw Champions
Ten boys and girls from Prairie Elementary School, Prairie Middle School, and Summit Academy, ages 10 to 14, were named local and district champions of the 2004 Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship and have earned the right to compete at the state level. Knights of Columbus Council #1389 from Cottonwood, Ferdinand, Greencreek, and Keuterville sponsored the local competition at the three schools during Physical Education periods. The winners emerged from a pool of 126 students who participated in the free event. All youth ages 10 to 14 were eligible to participate.
Kendra Dinning was the 10-year old girls’ champion and Beau Schlader was the winner of the 10-year old boys’ division. In the 11-year olds’ bracket, Amber Holthaus was the girls’ champion and David Sigler was the boys’ champion. Twelve-year-old winners in the girls’ and boys’ division were Leora Laurino and Kyle Daly. The 13-year old girls’ division was won by Jennifer Enneking and the boys’ by Tyler Forsmann. Fourteen-year-old champions were Nataiva Klinkefus in the girls’ bracket and Kenneth Enneking in the boys’. Each contestant shot 15 three-throws in the contest. Ties were settled by successive rounds of five free throws per contestant until a winner shot their way to the top spot.
Each of these winners were recognized Saturday, February 28, 2004. Each of them received a KC Certificate recognizing their achievement and a district champion medal. In addition, the winning scores will be submitted to compete in the state competition later this winter with an eye toward advancing to the international level during the spring.
