Milbank contestants Jaxon Wiese and Shaylee Schuchard, took top places at the regional Knights of Columbus free throw contest in Watertown on Sunday, February 2. Each won their division, but now must wait to hear if they advance to the state contest. Their results will be compared with all the other regions in South Dakota. The top five shooters compete at the state event, which is slated for Sunday, March 1, in Chamberlain.
Schuchard topped the field in the girls’ 13-year-old division. Wiese was the winner of the boys’ 11-year-old division. Wiese was also one of the top two shooters in the entire contest. Both dropped in 23 of 25 free throws.
