The winners of the San Manuel Elks Hoop Shoot free throwing contest were announced Tuesday at the San Manuel Elks Club. Around 45 kids participated in the contest which was held Saturday at the San Manuel High School Gym. It was the biggest participation the contest has held in years. The winners were presented with certificates by Elks Lodge members Sam Pyritz and Andy Salas. They will receive trophies later on. Andy spoke to the kids and parents about the Elks, their history and traditions and giving back to the community. He talked about how the membership is dwindling and the club is in need of younger men and women to step up and become the next generation of Elks.

The winners of the San Manuel Elks Hoop Shootout were Analicia Ahumada, Girls 10-11 Division; Alex Medina, Boys 12-13 Division; Jose Zazueta, Boys 10-11 Division; Ariza Castillo, Girls 8-9 Division; and Damien Foster, Boys 8-9 Division. These five local champions will travel to Sahuarita to compete in the district hoop shoot. Winners from the district will then go to Phoenix.
