Mylee made 21 of 25 free throws and Kobi made 22 of 25 free throws last Saturday in Apache Junction to earn their state titles. Both will advance to the Western Region 7 competition scheduled Saturday, Feb. 21, in Las Vegas, Nev., where they will compete against state winners from Hawaii, California, Utah and Nevada. The national competition will be held in Springfield, Mass. Members of the Holbrook Elks Lodge are very proud of Kobi and Mylee, and wish them the best at the region competition.
