St. Joseph’s Council hosts north championship
By CLAUDE VINSON
The North Half Championship of the annual Knights of Columbus Free Throw Tournament was held at the Holy Family School gym on April 14.
Andre DeBerry, mayor of Holly Springs, was on hand to welcome the participants and attendees. Mayor DeBerry also stayed around to witness some of the contestants taking their best shots.
There were three shooters qualifying for national/international competition. Their scores will be sent to the Supreme Council in New Haven, Connecticut, for comparison with other scores around the entire jurisdiction.
Jakolby Bailey, the 11-year-old son of Karee B. Heath of Holly Springs, qualified with a score of 19 out of 25. The other two qualifiers were Diego Longoria, 13, and Jonathan Gann, 14, of Corinth.
Raymond Ball, the district deputy of the first district in the Mississippi Jurisdiction, draped the winners with their medallions.
All the shooters and attendees were treated to a great lunch of hamburgers, hot dogs and barbecue.
The local council would like to thank Holy Family School (and John Wesley) for providing the venue. James Rayford, chancellor of Council 8760 and former head varsity basketball coach of the Rust College Lady Bearcats, was the tournament director. Assistant director was Ruby Pinson, former collegiate All American basketball player.
