Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools, our houses of worship--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

On Jnuary 19, 2018, the Knights of Columbus held their annual free throw competition at Holy Name. They've been holding it for many, many years.  It's a great community building event, promotes good sportsmanship and much more.

Open to all 9 - 14 year olds, each contestant received three warm-up tosses followed by 15 consecutive free throw attempts from the appropriate age-designated foul line. In the event of a tie each contestant receives five free throws and no warm-ups.
