Elks Hoop Shoot 2018

NORTH PLATTE, Neb. Young talent in the area competed in a free throw contest at Adams Middle School on Sunday for the chance to advance to the district competition in Ogallala in January.

The contest is split into three age groups. The 8-9 year olds, the 10-11 year olds and the 12-13 year olds. The kids get 25 free throws. Whoever sinks the most shots takes home the trophy.

The Elks host the competition every year. They sponsor the winner through the local and district levels. If the shooters maintain the hot seat, the state will take over for regionals in Denver and nationals in Chicago.
