The Mesquite Elks Lodge #2811 congratulates: Josslin Law (8-9 year old girls), Allie Law (10-11 year old girls), Tate Halverson (8-9 year old boys), Stratton Waite (10-11 year old boys), and Daxon Toone (12-13 year old boys) for their participation in the Elks District Hoop Shoot challenge in Boulder City on January 10, 2015.

Daxon Toone won in his age group and moved on to the State Hoop Shoot held on February 7, 2015 in Hawthorne, NV. After making the three and a half hour drive, Daxon made a valiant effort to win and move on to the regional competition, but fell a couple of free throws short of the winner.

All of these young boys and girls represented Mesquite and the Elks Lodge with enthusiasm and displayed exceptional basketball skills. The community and each member of the Elks lodge are proud of their accomplishments in this annual event and we applaud them for competing with great pride and dedication.
