Greenville Elks #1139 Soccer Shoot Results

On May 14, the Greenville Elks #1139 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks held their annual Soccer shoot at North Park in Greenville. The Soccer Shoot is an annual event that the Elks sponsor to promote sportsmanship, shooting accuracy and friendly competition in the game of soccer. This competition challenges the youth to focus and refine their shooting skills to move on to the next level. The younger 2 divisions have 3 levels: local, and district state whereas the older divisions have the same divisions but this year add a fourth – regional (after state). Each competitor comes out and receives 15 shots on the goals. In the younger division, goals are setup that range from 48” (worth 1 point) to 17” (worth 5 points). The older group shoots at a regulation size goal broken down into a 3x3 grid with higher point values at the top of the grid and lower point values on the lower side of the grid.

This year was another record breaking year for the competition as we had 105 competitors compared to 88 last year. The competition was very, very close this year, in some cases ending up in many ties or only 1 point separating positions. The Elks would like to thank all of the competitors that participated in the event this year. It was a pleasure to watch them compete and enjoy the morning with us.

On June 2, the Elks sponsored a free awards banquet dinner providing a spaghetti dinner to all of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners along with their immediate family. We had several tie breakers performed that evening to settle some 2nd and 3rd place finishes. Each of these competitors kept us on our feet to the very end. Also at the event, we recognized Brayden Skinner for his amazing accomplishments last year, not only winning the state competition, but winning the award for best boys combined score (district and state). An enjoyable evening was had by all. The district competition will be held on June 26 at which point we hope to send many if not all of our competitors to the state competition held in Coshocton, OH on July 30.

The winners of the local competition are:
