The Knights of Columbus Loretto Council No. 536 sent eight boys and girls to the District 54 Free-Throw Competition, which was held on Feb. 14 at St. Mary’s School Gym in Fishkill, and four of them came home winners.
Moving on to the regional competition on Saturday, March 15, at the St. Columba School Gym in Hopewell Junction will be Devyn Kelly, who shot 6 for 25 in the 9-year-old girls’ bracket; Madison Chiera, who took the 10-year-old girls’ bracket by shooting 15 for 25; Taylor Farrell, who shot 14 for 25 in the 12-year-old girls’ bracket; and Alex Kubik, who shot 16 for 25 in the 12-year-old boys’ bracket.
