Salem Lady Cats junior Chloe Harness was among the four advancers in the Country Financial Three-Point Shot competition held at the Class 2a Carlyle Regional. Harness advanced in the initial competition when she connected on 9 of 15. Also advancing in the initial round were Breese Central’s Grace Boeschen and Austyn Jansen. Boeschen led all shooters with 12 and Jansen made 9. There were a group of 5 shooters for the final spot who made 5.
That group included Salem’s Delaney Kell and Carylle’s Amuarie Kilbert. Kell and Kilbert were eliminated during the first shoot-off as Kell made 3 of 10 corner shots and Kilberts made 2. Breese Central’s Mikayla Becker and Piasa Southewestern’s Hannah Nixon both hit 5 and needed a second shoot-off to determine the last position. This time Nixon came out on top when she hit 7 to Becker’s 5. The 4 advancers will next shoot Thursday at the Greenville Sectional.
