On Aug. 8 the Forks Elks Lodge held a Soccer Shoot at the soccer fields in Forks.
There were 40 kids who participated in the contest. The kids who scored the highest points won, and were eligible to advance to the state contest. There were eight divisions to compete in, and the winners were U8 girls Payton Johnson, U8 boys DeAnthony Davila, UlO girls Lily Fili, U10 boys Colton Duncan, U12 girls Veronica Gomez-Bos, U12 boys Seth Johnson, U14 boys Adam Barnhart.
