Nine area hoopsters advance

Nine boys and girls from Truckee ages 10-14 were named local champions of the Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship last week and have earned the right to compete at the district level.

Truckee-Tahoe City Council #7583 in Truckee sponsored the competition at the Tahoe-Truckee High School gym.

Scott Welsh was the winner in the 10-year-old boys’ division.

In the age 11 bracket, Kelly Tierney was the girls’ champion and Cory Dorsey won for the boys.

Twelve-year-old winners were Amber Harder and Eric Welsh.

The 13-year-old girls’ division was won by Jamie Froelich and the boys’ by Zach Sharp.

Jennifer Rummens won the girls’ 14-year-old bracket; Kevin Schlessinger won the boys’.

Each contestant was allowed 15 free throw attempts and ties were settled by successive rounds of five free throws each until a winner emerged.

Each of the local winners will compete in the district competition with an eye toward moving on to the state, national and international levels.
