The Greater Johnstown School District hosted its annual elementary foul-shooting contest March 7 at Warren Street Elementary School.

As a part of physical education classes at Warren Street and Glebe Street, students participated in a basketball unit which focused on the fundamental skills of basketball. In addition, students participated in a foul-shooting contest in their class. The first and second place winners from each class contest were then invited to compete in the district-wide contest at Warren Street.

Several students competed in the district-wide contest this year with the winners making anywhere between three and eight out of 10 foul shots.

This year’s winners were Ryan Fallis and Elizabeth Chest (third grade), Clayton Ronek and Ashley Klena (fourth grade), Peyton Anderson and Ayden Smith (fifth grade) and Tara Derusha and Braeden Fennessey (sixth grade).

Helping out with the contest were Cynthia Cromer, Melissa Blanchard and Olivia Cromer, with assistance from several Johnstown boys and girls basketball players.
