2016 Indiana Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship - State Finals
The Free Throw Championship is the largest Knights of Columbus Youth event in the State, and the contestants had to advance through the Council, District, and Regional competitions to make it to the State Championship. The contest was held on Sunday, March 6, 2016 at St. Theodore Guerin Catholic High School in Noblesville.
Attached is the list of results for the 2016 Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship for the State of Indiana. I have also attached a couple of group photos. The first place winners all received a trophy, runners-up received a 2nd place plaque, and all contestants received a certificate of participation. The 1st and 2nd place winners are also listed at the very bottom of this e-mail.
Please contact your councils to let them know the results if you had a participant entered from your district. There were a few councils that didn't place the council number on the entry forms, so we had to do some work to find the participants council number. Please make sure to have your council number on all forms submitted next year, since the contestants usually don't know the council number.
Thank You to the chairmen of the Council, District, and Regional level contests and to everyone who volunteered, participated, organized, donated, or helped out a contest in any way throughout the state, for each of those contests.
