Super Shooters!

On Saturday, January 10 several Balls Creek students competed in the Elks Hoop Shoot Contest at Lenoir Rhyne University.  The following students represented Balls Creek:

Several students placed during the competition after competing against 12-15 other kids
in their age group from schools around our county.

Congratulations to Jenna H (3rd place), Mitchell W (2nd place),
Terick B (2nd place) and Courtney H (1st place).

Courtney will move on to the district competition in Morganton, NC on January 24th.
