Sate Basketball Free throw 2019

2019 State Free Throw
The 2019 State Free Throw Contest was held April 6, 2019 at Redcliff Middle School in Valley, Colchester County.
There was a good turnout of 47 contestants, from 22 towns and cities in the province, ranging from the Halifax/Dartmouth area through to Antigonish. Unfortunately, we had no contestants from Cape Breton, the Valley, South Shore or Sou’west Nova. We’d love to see contestants from those area next year.   If any councils from that area would like information on putting on a contest, please contact me at len.limpert@eastlink.ca.   I’d be more than happy to provide whatever support I can. Contestants were treated to pop, pizza and water, and then started shooting.   Top shooters on the day were Aleigh Mumford and Jillian Jota for the girls, with 20 of 25 baskets for 80% accuracy, and Jaxon MacDonald for the boys, who hit 23 of 25 shots, for an 86% free throw percentage. We had over 20 volunteers from several different councils who put the contest on.   Also attached are random pictures of the contest.
