Trinity Christian School's Shoot-Out Raises Money for the School

MORGANTOWN -

Trinity Christian School in Morgantown put a fun touch on fundraising Friday when it held its annual shoot-out fundraiser.

Student got eight minutes to sink as many free-throws as they could for a good cause.

"Everyone's real excited to be here, just because we all do have so much fun being here and it goes towards a good cause," said Peyton Konchesky, a junior at Trinity Christian School. "It gives us a great experience to all be able to come out here have fun and raise money doing it."

Students raised money through pledges and donations. For some shooters the amount of many raised was tied to their total basket count.

"I did fairly well, pretty well," said 6th Grader Daniel Woods, "I made 91," and Konchesky sunk 127. Both were well above what West Virginia Illustrated's Scott Grayson hit.

Grayson competed up against members of the school's staff and former Trinity and WVU athletes as part of the celebrity shoot-out portion.

"Hopefully all the kids will get into it, we'll have fun with it and it'll be a good time," said Grayson who made 80 baskets.

Last year the shoot-out raised $30,000 for the school. This year organizers hoped to do better.

"It helps support the mission of the school and offset tuition for Trinity Christian School's students," said event co-chair Jason Sheffstall.
