On Saturday, Jan. 6, the Kearny Elks were represented at the East District Hoop Shoot Contest with the six first place winners from the local Hoop Shoot Contest. The Elks are proud to announce two first place winners and two second place winners.
Two shooters brought home the first place trophy, in the 8 and 9 girls, Ariana Arbizo, and in the 12 and 13 girls, Mia Barragan. These two girls will compete in the State Hoop Shoot contest in Apache Junction on Feb. 17. If they win there, they will go on the Regional Shoot in Las Vegas, Nevada.
