Jaycees continue Super Shooters despite no advancement
Even though there is no longer a Super Shooters contest on the state level, the Imperial Jaycees are continuing its local sponsorship of one.
It was held Sunday at the school, with 25 youths age six to 13 competing in eight age groups.
While boys and girls competing together in the same age groups when a state contest was still held, this year’s local contest separated them. That doubled the chances for placing first, second or third.
Age groups were 6-7, 8-9, 10-11 and 12-13. Each youth had two chances in the 60-second timed contest to shoot baskets from several spots on the floor, with the best scored used. Extra points were awarded when the basket was good.
Jaycee Michal Swanson noted that trophies for the 15 first, second and third place finishers will be presented to youths at an upcoming home basketball game.
Youths were awarded T-shirts and movie passes on Sunday.
Here is the list of winners:
