The Rockwall Knights of Columbus organization is sponsoring a free basketball free-throw contest for boys and girls, ages 10-14 (as of Jan. 1).

The “2011 Free-Throw Challenge” will be held Feb. 13, at Noon, at the Rockwall County YMCA, 1210 N Goliad St, in Rockwall.

According to organizer Joe Blanco, boys and girls will compete against others in their age groups by shooting a series of 15 free-throws, with the top scorer in each group advancing to the District level round, to be held immediately following the local contest.

Tie breakers will be decided with extra rounds of five free throws until ties are broken.
