Then there were six.

More than 4,600 kids participated in the 2012-13 Coeur d'Alene Elks Hoop Shoot at the school level. From there, more than 90 arrived at The Arena at Post Falls High School on Jan. 13 to determine who would be the six age-group representatives to the district competition.

The end result was a combination of the old and the new.

For the fifth consecutive year, Zach Mackimmie of Canfield Middle School participated in the Lodge competition. For the fourth time, Mackimmie will be advancing to the district competition in Kellogg on Saturday.

Mackimmie put together two good rounds to net 21 baskets in the boys 12-13 year old age division. Last year, in the 10-11 year old category, Mackimmie earned a trip to the national championship Hoop Shoot, only the third athlete from the Coeur d'Alene area to ever make it that far since the Hoop Shoot began in the 1970s.

There was a logjam behind Mackimmie with Logan Erny of Timberlake Junior High, Sheldon Kistler of Twin Lakes Elementary and Tanner McCliment-Call of River City Middle School tying for second with 15 made baskets out of 25.

In the tiebreaker shootoff, Erny hit all five of his shots in the first round to take second place. Kistler and McCliment-Call made three shots each and went another two rounds before third place was decided. In that round, Kistler was perfect from the line while McCliment-Call missed one.

On the girls' side of the competition, it was a duel between Ali Rollins of Canfield Middle School and Lilly Kelley of Timberlake Junior High. When Rollins ended her second round with a score of 20 out of 25, Kelley had her work cut out for her.

The 12-year-old responded, making 12 of her final 15 shots to knot the score. In the tiebreaker, Rollins was a perfect five for five. Kelley started out hitting her first three shots before missing, putting Rollins at the top of the podium.

Athol Elementary's McKeely Tonkin was third with 16 out of 25.

Tiebreakers were the order of the day in all the boys' and girls' competitions.

In the boys' 10-11 age division, Colby Gennett of Prairie View Elementary used a strong second round to eke out a one-point win over Canfield's Dylan Bengtson and Ramsey Elementary's Brayden Sundstrom. Gennett made 16 baskets.

In the tiebreaker for the runner-up spot, Bengtson found his stroke and hit all five of his shots while Sundstrom made three of five. Two years ago, Bengtson represented the Coeur d'Alene Lodge at the national championships in Massachusetts.

For the girls, Tyler McCliment-Call easily outdistanced her competition, making 14 of her shots. After a rough start, Twin Lakes' Kenzie Dean hit seven of her final 15 shots to earn second place with nine points. Halle Kane of Canfield and Bryan Elementary's Kyla Currie both made eight shots and needed two rounds of tiebreakers before Currie came out on top for third place.

The boys' 8-9 year old division was dominated by the Post Falls schools. Tyson Pottenger from Seltice Elementary won the competition with a score of 16. Close on his heels was Richie Thomas of John Brown Elementary at 14. There was a tie for third between Prairie View's Zachery Endreson and Westridge's Nick Bailey with 13 points each. Endreson started the tiebreaker, making three of his five shots. Bailey came up big in the clutch, making his first four shots to earn third place.

Atlas' Taylor Dietz won the girls' 8-9 year old age group, making 11 of 25 shots. Maya Kowatsch of Ponderosa Elementary School and Breanna Widener of Winton Elementary tied for second with eight points each. Kowatsch was one better in the tiebreaker to claim the runner-up position.

For the seventh year, the Lodge also presented the Waide Hamner "Top Gun" trophy for the best boy and girl free throw shooter, regardless of age group. For the second straight year, MacKimmie won the boys award. Rollins was tops among the girls.


The North Idaho Storm fourth-grade boys AAU basketball team posted a 4-0 record to win the Snake River Shootout last weekend in Lewiston.

The Storm beat the Moscow Lightning 30-12, Pullman Thunder 39-19 and Moscow Sharks 31-0 in pool play. In the championship game the Storm beat the Lewiston Fury 41-22.

Four-game totals: Cole Rutherford 37 points, 15 rebounds, 35 steals, 12 assists; Tommy Hauser 17 points, 12 rebounds, 21 steals, 14 assists; Kaden Cripps 16 points, 12 rebounds, 22 steals, 4 assists; Cooper Green 14 points, 6 rebounds; Nick Bailey 12 points, 4 rebounds, 6 steals; Dylan Behrens 12 points, 4 steals; Dylan Brown 9 points, 9 rebounds, 13 steals; Tyler Arnone 8 points, 6 rebounds, 9 steals, 3 assists; Marcus Butler 9 points, 8 rebounds, 9 steals; and Tyson Rutherford 7 points, 4 rebounds, 4 steals.
