Philomene Kirk  Wins SE Regional Championship in Elks Hoop Shootout

Philomene Kirk represented the state of Mississippi in the Elks Hoop Shootout Southeastern Regional Championship held in Valdosta, GA. She competed against the best free throw shooters from Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina, and won the title. She will now move on to the National Championships in Chicago.

It’s worth noting that no shooter from the Coast has ever made it to Nationals before, and she is the first. Philomene has been practicing free throws at the MAC and has likely shot over 3,000 practice free throws since its opening.  Congratulations Philomene!
