Young student athletes from Hanes Hosiery recently dominated the Winston-Salem Recreation Department’s annual Two-Ball Championship.

During the competition that featured representatives from recreation centers from across the city, boys and girls made their own teams of two to see which team could sink the most shots from various marked spots on the basketball court. The total combined scores of the competition are added together for a team score.

This year the event included a new twist. A three-point and free throw contest were added to round out the team competition and scoring.

While a number of dead-eye shooters showed their abilities during the contest, kids from Hanes Hosiery really put on a great show. Not only did they take home the city-wide championship, they also picked up victories in the 9-11 boys and girls divisions.

The duo of Darren “DJ” Pegues, and Evan Dunlap took home the championship for the boys, while Carlissa Potter and Jayla Summers took home the title in the girls’ division.

The boys 12-14 age group champions were Chance Carter and Elan Muniz from Sprague Street Recreation Center. Charlotte Craver teamed up with Eva Koivisto to win the girls’ division trophy for Old Town Recreation Center.

Longtime supervisor at Hanes Hosiery Art Blevins said the students put on a great shooting exhibition. He also said he was proud to see the kids’ hard work pay off.

“We had a lot of great young shooters participating in our event this year,” he said. “I am very proud.”
