TOWN OF LOCKPORT -- Twenty-five boys and girls participated in a basketball free throw challenge hosted by the Lockport Knights of Columbus Saturday at the newly refurbished DeSales Catholic School gymnasium.

All who took part went home with a certificate and a patch marking their participation. Seven were crowned champions and will compete in the district competition later this month. The champions -- all from DeSales -- received a K of C medallion.

DeSales alumnus CJ Masters from the Class of 2015 impressed the crowd, competing in the challenge with a broken left hand -- cast and all. That didn't stop him from sinking 14 out of his 15 free throws. Masters now attends Cardinal O'Hara and plays on their JV basketball team.

Other champs included Christopher Goyette, who sunk 13 free throws; Carson Ransom, who made 12; Cole Meller (11); Grant Harrer (10); Olivia Masters (10); and Henry Genewick (9).

The event was run by the Lockport Knights of Columbus and chaired by Marty Johnston and co-chaired by Grand Knight Bart Schuler, Past Grand Knight Todd Fragale, Mike Norris and Dan Rawlings.

With more than 1.9 million members, the Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic lay organization. It provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, the community, families, and young people. The Lockport Knights of Columbus was formed in 1898.
