Westervelt, who is a two-time Arizona state champion in the Hoop Shoot, made 22 out of 25 free throws in the district competition, but had to forgo the state competition on Saturday, Feb. 9, because the Arizona Small Schools Girls Basketball Championships Final was on the same day.After winning the first competition at West Sedona School, seventh-grader Liza Westervelt and sixth-grader Chase Sacalzski both won the Northern Arizona Elks Hoop Shoot in Cottonwood on Jan. 26, and advanced to the state competition in Apache Junction on Saturday, Feb. 9.

Both Westervelt and Sacalzski shot 22 out of 25 free throws, making them two of the 24 shooters out of an initial pool of 16,000 to make it to the Arizona state finals. It’s also one of the few times two shooters from the same school were represented in the championships.
