Both Mott/Regent and New England sent students ages eight to 13 to the district free-throw shooting contest.

The contest starts locally at each school and the winners of each of the three divisions for both boys and girls move on to the district competition. The district competition was held at Dickinson Trinity on Jan. 10.

The three divisions are 8-9 year olds, 10-11 year olds and 12-13 year olds, with each having a boy and a girl representative.

From Mott/Regent boys Layne Kovar (8-9 years), Timothy Gaab (10-11 years) and Jayden Hauch (12-13) competed. Girls from Mott/Regent were Samantha Greff (8-9 years), Madison Rafferty (10-11 years) and Haley Kemp (12-13).

Rafferty took second in her age division making 10 shots out of 25, however the contestant who took first  is unable to make it to the state competition on Jan. 17 in Jamestown, so Rafferty will take her place.

Kemp took third place in her age division making 16 shots out of 25.

For New England Teddy Kirshemann (8-9 years), Matthew Bock (10-11 years) and Gabe Sorenson (12-13 years) competed for the boys. Bailey Urlacher (8-9 years), Maddie Rayhorn (10-11 years) and Elli Rettinger (12-13 years) competed for the girls.

Gabe Sorenson took first in his age division and will be moving on to the state competition.

Matthew Bock, who is the reigning state champ in his division, took second. However, the first place winner is not able to make the state competition so Bock will take his place and compete in Jamestown.
