Norman Finishes 2nd At Elks Hoop Shoot Regional Championship


By WSIL Sports

BENTON -- Benton native Cy Norman recently competed in the eight and nine year old Elks Hoop Shoot competition.

Norman claimed victories in the local, district, and state competitions. He then finished in second place at the North Central Regional championship, where he sank 22-25 free throw attempts.

He plans on making his return to the competition next year.

"It was fun and I got to meet a lot of new friends," said Cy. "I like to get out there and shoot and have a little fun."

"It was something that he decided to do and he put the work in," said Cy's father Reggie Norman. "He wants to shoot and he likes to shoot."

"I am going to keep trying until I can get up to nationals," said Cy. "Every year I am going to try and beat what I did last year."




He was one of more than three million boys and girls between the ages of eight and 13 years-old, who participated in the contest of making free throws.
