There were plenty of good shooters at Wamogo Regional High School on Sunday for the local version of the Connecticut Recreation and Parks Association Hot Shot Contest.
Twenty-five boys and girls ages 9-15 participated in the contest that was sponsored by the Goshen Recreation Department, the Warren Parks and Recreation Department and the Morris Beach and Recreation Department. Department directors Colleen Kinkade (Goshen), Kristen Davila (Morris) and Don Murphy (Warren) were on hand to ensure a smooth operation and were assisted by several volunteers, including players from the Wamogo boys and girls teams.
Participants shot from several locations on the court during three one-minute rounds that tested not only their shooting ability, but also their dribbling, rebounding and speed.
There were three age divisions for boys and girls. Winners of the boys’ divisions were Walter Brodhead of Warren (9-10); Anthony Turtoro of Goshen (11-12); and Brady Collins of Morris (13-15).
For the girls, winners were Olivia Ensign of Sharon (9-10); Sarah Krayeske of Watertown (11-12); and Katrina Nordland of Goshen (13-15). The winners move on to the state Hot Shot Contest in Old Saybrook March 28.
