Knights announce free throw champ

FAIRFIELD—The St. Pius X Knights Of Columbus Council #16347 in Fairfield is pleased to announce that Braden Moore has won the 14-Year-Old division of the Knights of Columbus State Free Throw Competition, held at St. Paul’s High School in Bristol. Braden, an 8th grade student at Tomlinson Middle School, was one of six winners at a local level competition held in January in Fairfield. From there, Braden went on to the Southwestern Regional Competition held in March in West Haven, where he won the 14-Year-Old division. With this momentum, Braden moved on to represent St. Pius X Council at the state finals, where he competed against other regional winners and emerged victorious as state champion.

“It was such a fun experience for Braden, and for my husband Kevin and I” said Michelle Moore, Braden’s mother. “We were all so excited to be part of this event. Thank you to the Knights of Columbus, who made it possible.”

The Knights of Columbus Council #16347 extends its congratulations to Braden on his win, and extends special thanks to James Maloney, the council’s director of youth activities for all of his work in making this a success.
