Knights Of Columbus Honor State Free Throw Winners

The Sacred Heart Chapter 3137 of the Knights of Columbus held a ceremony Wednesday in the Knights of Columbus Hall on DP Road in Los Alamos to recognize the state winners of the free throw contest sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. Los Alamos sent three district winners to the state contest in Bernalillo earlier this year and all three won first place. This was the best showing ever for Los Alamos.
