Crossfit Milford’s very own Ava Storz a National Competitor

This 8 year old, pint sized cutie, is one of the nation’s best free throw shooters in the nation! On April 22, Ava Storz of Orange, CT, finished top 10 in the country with an 8th place overall finish at the national hoop shoot competition for the Elks Hoop shoot Finals in Chicago for her age group.

Last fall, Ava joined millions of 8 to 13 year olds across the country who competed in the 2017 Elks National Hoop Shoot Free Throw Contest. Ava advanced through the local, district and state levels of competition, sinking the most of 25 free throws in her division at each contest. With a score of 21 out of 25 at the New England Regional Semi-Finals, Ava secured her chance to shoot on the foul line at the National Finals.

Ava is proud to have finished 8th in the nation but like all champions she is already training, both on and off the court, for a repeat showing beginning this November.  Her father, Michael Storz, says, “The coaching and training she receives at Crossfit Milford has provided her with the confidence and athletic mindset that money simply cannot buy.  We are so proud of her and so lucky to be part of this amazing community that Jason has created.”
