Local youth take district honors in free throw competition

Five boys and girls from this area, ages 10 to 14, were named district champions of the Knights of Columbus free throw contest.

The district competition took place Jan. 27 in Puyallup and featured winners from local contests; in Enumclaw, the local contest was on Jan. 19 at Southwood Elementary School.

District winners from this area were Ty Albrecht, 10; Danika Seabrands, 11; Jessica Cerne, 13; Drew Seabrands, 14; and Sydney Anderson, 14.

The district winners now set their sights on the regional contest, planned for March 2 in Burien. Regional winners will then compete at the state level March 23 in Yakima.

Anderson was a state champion a year ago, competing in the 13-year-old division.

The free-throw contest is sponsored annually by the Knights of Columbus, who last year saw 179,000 kids participate in more than 3,000 local events.
