  Practice, concentration, goals and success. 

  These traits were obvious in all the young basketball enthusiasts who competed at the Hayden High School Gym on Saturday, Dec. 15, in the Elks Hoop Shoot Free Throw competition sponsored by the Kearny Elks Lodge. 

  Three age groups of both boys and girls from the school districts of Hayden, Ray and Superior competed for top honors. 

  Winning first place girls are Savannah Magallanes (age 8-9), Ariana Arbizo (age 10-11) and Felicity Boltarez (age 12-13).  First place boys are Ryan Garner (age 8-9), Tyler Garner (age 10-11) and Ysidro Medina (age 12-13).

  First place winners representing the Kearny Lodge will move on to compete at the Arizona Elks East District Free Throw competition on Jan. 12, 2019 at the Chandler Boys and Girls Clubs.  Winners of the District level move on to the Arizona Elks State competition with those winners advancing to Regional and National competitions. Regional finalists compete for a national title at the National Finals in Chicago.

  Second Place Winners for girls are Nevaen Ramirez (age 8-9), Alyna Cruz (age 10-11) and Alexis Gallegos (age 12-13). Second place boys are Richard Nunez (age 8-9), Rylan Duarte (age 10-11) and Morales Cruz (age 12-13).
