Four Gaines Academy students participated in the recent Fort Pierce Elks Lodge #1520 Basketball Hoop Shoot free throw contest, all of whom “placed” and received a trophy!  Three of these students will have the opportunity to participate in the District Hoop Shoot Contest on January 7th in Lake Placid.  Scholarship money may be awarded to these students because of their participation.  Pictured, from left, are Mathieu Zamy first place boys 8-10, Karim Sulton, first place boys 11-13, Mickaela Kelly, first place girls 11-13, and Angel Zamy, second place boys 8-10.
