Eight boys and girls from Fayette, Lyons, Liberty Center, West Unity and Wauseon ages 9-14, were named local champions of the 2016 Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championships and have earned the right to compete at the district level. St. Caspar K of C #8829 in Wauseon sponsored the local competition at St. Caspar Parish Life Center.
All youngsters ages 9 to 14 were eligible to participate.
Each contestant was allowed 15 free throws attempts in the contest. Ties were settled by successive rounds of five free throws per contestant until a winner emerged. Each of these winners will now advance to the district competition in Defiance on February 14 and compete for the right to advance to regionals.
