Knights ‘Free Throw’ Winner

The St. Pius X Knights of Columbus Council #16347 of Fairfield is pleased to announce that Braden Moore, pictured above, has won the 14 year old division of the Knights of Columbus State Free Throw Competition, held on April 8th at St. Paul’s High School in Bristol.

Braden, an 8th grade student at Tomlinson Middle School, was one of 6 winners at a local level competition held on January 19th in Fairfield. From there, Braden went on to the Southwestern Regional Competition held on March 11 in West Haven, where he won the 14 year old division against 5 other contestants. With this momentum, Braden moved on to represent St. Pius X Council #16347 at the state finals, where he competed against 3 other regional winners in his division, 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.
