Each year, the Elks Club hosts a Hoop Shoot Contest. On January 19th, our local Raceway Elks Lodge #2852 sponsored six Local Hoop Shoot Winners from our district to compete in the Elks “District Hoop Shoot” Free Throw Contest at Vulture Peak Middle School Gymnasium in Wickenburg, AZ. There were a total of 34 competitors of both Boys and Girls in age categories 8-9, 10-11, 12-13 representing seven West District Elks Lodges. Each competitor was given 25 free throws. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place tropies are awarded in each age group for girls and boys. The 1st place winners in each category will compete in the State Elks Hoop Shoot in Apache Junction, AZ on February 16, 2019.
Congratulations to all LESD student participants! They walked away from this Contest with three 1st place finishes, two 2nd place finishes, and one 3rd place finish. We are grateful to the Raceway Elks for supporting our district every year in this fun competition.
Best wishes to Briana from L Thomas Heck, Aiden from Western Sky, and Madison from L Thomas Heck as they go on to compete in the state Elks Hoop Shoot in Apache Junction on february 16th!
