Alexi Goodnow, Josey King, Hannah Walker and Mattie Jo Duzik have been playing basketball together in one venue or another for several years, including the annual Hoop Shoot contest hosted by Elks Lodge No. 1577. Even though this was the last year all four of them will compete together, Goodnow said the latest competition provided exactly what it’s supposed to — a fun time. “It’s always a good experience,” she said.
