Kent youths prove to be basketball 'Hotshots'
Three Kent youngsters earned age division titles this winter in the annual local Hotshot basketball contest.
The three boys were the top scorers in their respective age divisions in the Kent contest, hosted March 2 by Kent Park and Recreation at Kent Center School.
The competition, sponsored by the Connecticut Recreation and Parks Association, matches participants' basketball skills against the clock.
Boys and girls aged 9 to 15 had three one-minute rounds in which to attempt baskets from five "hotspots" on the court.
Eleven youngsters participated in the local event, reported Park and Recreation director Lesly Ferris, and each received a participation ribbon.
The top scorers each also received a basketball trophy.
