Pearl River Elks Hoop Shoot at Highview (VIDEO)

26 kids participated in the Pearl River Elks' 4th Annual Hoop Shoot, which is free of charge and run by volunteers. Every participant received a T-Shirt and there were kids from all over the county.

The Pearl River Elks annual “HOOP SHOOT” free throw shooting contest was at Highview Elementary School last Friday. There were three age groups competing for trophies.

Each contestant has 25 attempts to make a basket from the free throw line. The boy and girl in each age group with the best score advances to compete in the South District contest in January.

"There were kids from all over the county, Nanuet, Pearl River, Blauvelt, West Nyack, Congers, it's a mix," said Vinny Pacella, event organizer. "12 Girls and 14 Boys participated for a total of 26."
