A local fifth grade student knows a thing or two about making free throws.

Trey Peters, 11, the son of Brenda and Shawn Peters, averaged 93 percent from the free throw line throughout the Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship for boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 14.

Trey represented the Batesville Knights of Columbus throughout the competition that began at the local level. He first competed at St. Louis School in Batesville, advanced to the next round in Lawrenceburg and continued to the state regional round in Scottsburg.

After winning regionals, Trey advanced to the state level at Theodore Guerin Catholic High School in Noblesville on Sunday. He was the last of six contestants to shoot, and had to make more than 22 of 25 free throws to win the state competition.

“Trey made his first five, missed his sixth one, and I thought he has a few more misses he will be alright,” said his father Shawn. “From seven on, he hit them all! I was a proud dad yesterday!”

Trey made 24 of 25 free throws earning him the top spot at the state level. The Batesville student will now compete at the national level. Knights of Columbus officials will tally all of the free throws he made throughout the entire competition and average that against other top 11-year-olds across the nation. The results will be released later this month.

Trey made a total of 84 of 90 free throws beginning at St. Louis through Sunday’s state championship.

Congratulations Trey!
