NE athletes shoot for top honors in free-throw

By Ryan Mercer/sports editor

   NE students hooped it up last Friday in a free-throw shooting contest where 15 entered the event but only one could claim the title of school’s best shooter from the charity stripe.
   This year’s free-throw shooting contest brought NE’s best shooters to the line as they tried to become the school’s best free-throw shooter.
   The contest was open to everyone, and several women got in on the action.
   Of the first qualifiers to make it to the next round, no one shot better than Tiarra Heggs.
   Heggs made 19 of 20 free-throws, the most out of the field.
   However, Heggs would miss the chance at advancing to the final by one basket.
   Jared Doughney, Adam Ingram and Daniel Burton separated themselves from the rest of the field as they squared off in the final round.
   Burton would bow out missing a chance for first by one shot.
   Doughney and Ingram would tie after their first tries, so they shot again to see who would take first.
   Doughney shot first and put the pressure on Ingram by making all five of his shots.
   Ingram, needing to make all his shots to stay alive, fell short missing one shot to give Doughney the title.
   The free-throw competition is only one of several Friday afternoon events sponsored by the HPER department as part of its NEW Games program, which emphasizes sports for health.
