Four first place winners at Sunday’s Super Shooters basketball contest are moving on to the state competition.
Tristan Jablonski, Easton Fries, Mallie McNair and Taylor Jablonski all won their age divisions at the contest hosted by the Imperial Jaycees in the Longhorn gym.
In the contest, youths shoot from various spots on the floor, scoring points when making the basket. Each participant gets two one-minute runs with their best score used in the rankings. Boys and girls compete together in the same age divisions.
First, second and third place trophies were awarded by the Jaycees, which will also pay the entry fees for the first place winners at state. If the first place winner cannot attend, second place will be eligible to represent Imperial.
Here are the placings by age group and the contestant scores.
Age 6-7—1st Tristan Jablonski 35, 2nd Jaret Peterson 32, 3rd Thomas Reeves 29.
Age 8-9—1st Easton Fries 38, 2nd Morgan Peterson 34, 3rd Bryn McNair 33.
Age 10-11—1st Mallie McNair 68, 2nd Trevor Peterson 57, 3rd Bennett Bauerle 36. McNair and Peterson initially tied with 37 points each. The scores above include points from a second run used to break the tie.
Age 12-13—1st Taylor Jablonski 39, 2nd Maci Sorge 22, 3rd Parker Dillan 21.
There were 29 youths who competed in Sunday’s local contest.
Date and location for the state contest will be announced later.
