Local 3rd Grader Competes In National Free Throw Competition

Last week we told you about Maggie Smith, the 3rd grader from Connell who is making a name for herself with her basketball skills.

This weekend Maggie participated in the national free throw shooting competition in Springfield Massachusetts.

She came in 4th place, making 18 out of 25 free throws.

Maggie's personal best is 23 out of 25 free throws which is what she shot at regionals to earn her a spot at nationals.

Maggie's mom said she got off to a rocky start at national but finished strong and couldn't be more proud.
