JFK and RCK Student-Athletes Compete in Town Hoops Contest

  • Fourth- and fifth-grade students from JFK and RCK competed recently in the 37th annual Town of Islip Sharp Shooter Basketball Contest. Taking the basketball skills learned in physical education classes to the next level, the Sharp Shooter “Just Say No to Drugs” program challenges local students to score as many baskets as possible in one minute. The Islip Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs has sponsored the Sharp Shooter program since 1993.

    JFK’s in-school winners were Tyler Doherty, Sean Gomez, Madelyn Kilfoil, Kaylee Zummo; while RCK’s were Juliana Blume, Brayden Domini, Tessa Fitch and Kona Jablonski. All eight East Islip winners moved on to participate in the townwide competition, held on March 5 at East Islip High School.
