Sophia Phillips wins Elks Hoop Shoot National Championship
A Cambridge area girl can now claim the title of National Champion. Cambridge Central School student Sophia Phillips won the girls' 12-13 age group in the Elks Hoop Shoot National Finals Saturday, April 22 in Chicago.
Sophia sank ten of ten from the chairty stripe in the first round. She then followed up making fourteen of fifteen in the second round, tying a girl from Idaho. In a shoot-out, Sophia made five for five to win the title.
Phillips will have her name permanently inscribed on the Hoop Shoot plaque in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. She has been invited to attend a recognition ceremony in September.
Sophia was the best female shooter of the day by calmly sinking 29 out of 30 attempts. As a result, she was the recipient of the coveted Getty Powell Award. This prestigious award was named after Gerald Powell who implemented the "Hoop Shoot" program on a national level. The Phillips' will be traveling to Reno, Nevada in July to accept the award. Sophia is the daughter of Bob and Edith Phillips of Greenwich, NY.
