Another weekend of free throw shooting, another pair of championships for the Espinosa boys.
Fresh off their district championship on Jan. 7, Putnam residents and brothers TJ and Bryce Espinosa both claimed state titles this past weekend to advance to New England Regionals to be held in March.
Shooting at Manchester High School and representing Putnam Elks Lodge 574, TJ claimed the 12-13-year-old division by going sinking all 25 of his foul shots. Bryce, meanwhile, went 18-of-25 to take the title in the 10-11-year-old division.
This is the second straight state championship for TJ, who finished second at regionals last year, and first for Bryce. The regional championships will be held at the University of Southern Maine, in Portland. Should either take the top spot there, it would be on to the national championship, held in Chicago.
TJ won the local competition by going 24-of-25, then the district championship with a 22-of-25 showing. Bryce won the local crown by going 20-of-25 followed by 21-of-25 in the district competition.
