Hoop Shoot winners

The local phase of the  Elks’ National Hoop Shoot Contest held Saturday at Fairfield Ludlowe High School produced the six top free-throw shooters in their age groups, who will now advance to the next level of the nationwide event which has three million youngsters competing for a shot at a national championship.
The local contest produced an interesting outcome with a brother and sister both taking the trophy in their bracket.
Clare Edminster garnered the girls 8-9 prize, while brother Owen copped the 10-11 title.
In the boys 8-9, Matthew McMurray was victorious, along with 10-11 girl winner Tricia Carey.
In the senior 12-13 division, both Christiana Cottrell and Will Lucas will repeat their victory, having both made state finals in the previous contests.
Both were highest scorers for the day with Cottrell making 17-of-25 free throws and Lucas, overall high scorer, with 19-of-25.
All six will now compete against their counterparts from the towns in the district, which comprises all coastal towns from Stamford to Branford, as well as Danbury and Derby.
The district contest will again be hosted by the Fairfield Elks Lodge and will be held on Sunday, Jan. 13 at Fairfield Warde High School, starting at 9:30 a.m.
Winners in that contest advance to state finals to decide who will represent Connecticut in the New England Regional Contest to be held in March in Portland, Maine to select national finalists to compete in April in Springfield, Massachusetts.
