TUCKAHOE – Contestants put it all on the line as they competed in the annual Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship on Saturday, Jan. 26 at the Upper Township Community Center in Tuckahoe.

 

Boys and girls ages 10-14 participated in the best of fifteen shot event.

The local contest has been sponsored by Msgr. James J. Zegers/Resurrection Council #9113 for more than 25 years. The Knights provide this free event as an opportunity for children to have fun and showcase their shooting skills.
