ANTWERP – Antwerp middle and high school students participated in the annual Hoops for Heart competition on Wednesday, March 20.
Students must donate at least $10 to the American Heart Association to participate in the day’s events, which included a middle and high school three-on-three, free throw, and three-point competitions.
The winners of the high school three-on-three were seniors Andy Coleman, Lydia Yenser and Braeden Hormann. The winning middle school team consisted of eighth graders Brandon Pendergrast, Hunter Noel and Mike Taylor.
Seventh grader Brandon Laney and freshman Jeff Coleman won the three-point contests, while seventh grader Dylan Peters and junior Derek Smalley won the free-throw contests.
The top money collectors for the day were senior Katie Bissell and seventh grader Cody Eblin.
Overall, Antwerp students raised over $3,700 this year for the American Heart Association, making the total over the last 16 years over $50,000.
The marketing director of the American Heart Association paid Antwerp Middle/High School a special visit on Wednesday because the school has raised so much money for the cause over the years.
