The Kings Youth Basketball Organization’s second annual free throw contest, held Sat., Nov.2 at the Salvation Army Center in Sarasota, was a big success.
Approximately 50 youngsters from ages 7 into high school participated. Shooting 50 shots each, the overall winner was Anthony, an elementary student, scoring 42 for 50. There was a tie for 2nd at 40/50 between Audra, and Troy.
Proceeds benefit the Kings upcoming travel season.
