The Knights of Columbus held the Regional Free Throw Championships on Saturday, Feb. 22 in Springfield. Three Licking youth, Allie Hock, Daniella Young and Jerry Hoffstetter, were winners in the competition and are now headed for the Free Throw State Championships.
Expectations are high, after scores from this competition, that our local representatives will do well at the state competition. Congratulations to all!
