Three Glendive kids are State Elks Hoop Shoot champions. Pictured above (L to R) Ethan Rivas, Maverick Murphy and Venice Torres earned titles in their respective age groups at the State Hoop Shoot in Livingston on Saturday. The three had previously won the local and district titles to earn the opportunity to compete at state.

Ethan won the 10-11 year old boys group, sinking 23 out of 25 free throws.

Maverick won the 8-9 year old age group. After missing his very first shot, Maverick refocused and made every basket after that to finish 24/25.

Venice won the 10-11 year old girls group. She shot 4/5 in a four-way tie for first place to earn the title.

The three sharp shooters will represent Montana at the Regional Hoop Shoot in Rapid City March 13-14.
