Elks Hoop Shoot West Central District Champion Drew Yarber, a seventh grader at Noblesville East Middle School, poses for a photo with Noblesville Elks Exalter Ruler Nicole Sigler. Yarber won Saturday's Elks Hoop Shoot West Central District competition in the McAnally Center at Greencastle High School. The seventh grader sank 23 out of 25 free throws to beat the competition in the 12-13-year-old division. He will now compete in the Hoop Shoot State Championship on February 23 at New Castle Chrysler Fieldhouse. The local Elks have had one national champion before. Back in 2010, current Purdue senior basketball player Ryan Cline won the competition.
