Volga’s Carly Granum holds the trophy she was awarded as the 2012 Knights of Columbus International Free Throw champion for the age-11 division. Granum was honored on Tuesday prior to Sioux Valley’s basketball doubleheader against Castlewood at the Cossack Center in Volga. Granum won the state competition on March 4 in Oacoma, making 23-of-25 free throws. Her score from the state level was sent to the international level, where she was again crowned champion. On her way to state, Granum won the local contest by making 14-of-15 shots; and then was victorious at the district competition by sinking 21-of-25 shots. Granum was the second consecutive shooter from Volga to win an international title, as Tayt Vincent won the boys’ age-12 division in 2011. The Knights of Columbus has sponsored free-throw contests for boys and girls between the ages of 10-14 since 1972.
