Raymond V. Hennessy Knights of Columbus Council #6145

Basketball free Throw 2014

Nick Ferrante's Regional Trophy
Olivia Scotti's Regional Trophy

Our kids did it again! On February 22, 2014 all of our ten contenders made the trip from Bucks County to compete in the Eastern Regional Competition. Our very own Olivia Scotti competing in the 12 year old girls category, and Nick Ferrante competing in a field of eighteen 10 year old boys won. But Nick did it the hard way. With a three way tie for first place, Nick had to compete in a "sudden-death" shootout. Nick was the only boy of the three to make five for five baskets. Winning the Regional for 10 year old boys. Both Olivia Scotti and Nick Ferrante are headed to the Pennsylvania State Championship! We are proud of our kids!!!
