The Emmetsburg Parks and Recreation Department sponsored its annual Spot Shot competition on Sunday, March 15, at the Smith Wellness Center.

A total of 14 boys and girls took part in the event, which is comprised of shooting a basketball from eight marked locations in 60 seconds. The contestant with the best score after two rounds of competition is the winner.

The first and second place finishers all qualify to advance to the State Spot Shot Competition in Marshalltown next month.
