win State KC Hoop Shoot championships
During the State of Idaho Knights of Columbus convention held in Boise in April, winners were announced and trophies were awarded for the 2011 Idaho KC State Hoopshoot Champions. Grand Knight Joe Didier returned from the convention carrying trophies for our local KC State of Idaho Hoopshoot champs. Our Cottonwood council/district winners captured two out of ten state wide spots. Our winners’ scores were submitted to compete at the international level with the results expected sometime this summer.
The 2011 Knights of Columbus Idaho State champions are: Hunter Chaffee – 10 year old boys and Hailey Danly, Prairie Middle School -12 year old girls. This is Hailey’s third state win in a row of winning her age category. Trophies were awarded to the winners during an end of school assembly held at Prairie Middle School. We hope to see these winners participating again next year along with their classmates and hopefully we can bring home some more state trophies.
Cottonwood Council 1389 had a total of 165 boys and girls from Prairie Elementary School, Prairie Middle School, and Summit Academy participate in the local KC free throw contest in January. From that pool of contestants, five girl and five boy winners ages 10 to 14 earned local and district championships of the 2011 Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship in February. Their scores were submitted for competition at the state level in early March.
Congratulations to the state winners and we hope that these winners will inspire more local boys and girls ages 10 to 14, to include home schoolers, to participate in the 2012 KC local hoopshoot. Thank you to the Prairie and Summit Schools for their cooperation and participation in the hoopshoot.
