Trio will next compete on March 6

The Knights of Columbus Loretto Council No. 536 sent seven boys and girls to the District 54 Free-Throw Competition held Feb. 12 in Hopewell Junction and three advanced to the regional competition.

Finola Kiter made 10 of 25 shots in the 9-year-old girls bracket; Isabela Monteleone won the 13-year-old girls’ bracket by sinking 11 of 25 and Gaetano Cervone hit 19 for 25 in the 13-year-old boy’s bracket. Each winner in the district competition was presented a medal by District Deputy Bill Hunt.

The three winners will next compete in the regional competition on Saturday, March 6, at Our Lady of Lourdes High School in Poughkeepsie. The winners there will continue on to the downstate regional tournament later in March.
