The winner of the age bracket 6 and under was Chase Scekinger. Finishing second was Valentina Vaccarino and placing third was Anne Palumbo. All players in this age bracket were also awarded a trophy.
In the 7-9 year old age bracket Santo Plamenco and Mason Ughetta matched baskets in the first round and Santo ran the table in the shoot out round by making 10 baskets on 10 attempts. Mason nearly matched him again by going 9 for 10. Truly amazing performances by these young players. Finishing third was Killian Todd.
In the age bracket 10 -12 twenty three participated and Owen Scekinger. the older brother of Chase, also took first place honors. In another shootout for second and third place Thomas Baxter prevailed over Cooper Pleyn.
The Senior Division saw more sharpshooters on display. The winner was Elliot Meyer who dropped in 6 baskets in round one. There were four ties for the second and third place positions. The first shooter in the shoot out was Colin Meyer who was perfect, 10 for 10. Both the Meyer boys put on quite a show to the delight of the crowd. Finishing third was Ryan Owens.
The 60 players were wonderful examples of good sportsrmanship. To have two shootouts, each won by making 10 consecutive shots is truly a remarkable feat.. Many thanks to sponsors of the event, Island Golf and Scoop City and to the volunteers. The events could not be held without the volunteers.
