Gary LeMaster Runner-up at Annual Free Throw Contest, December 1970

"Annual Free Throw Contest," Ball State Daily News, 15 December 1970; Ball State University Digital Archives ( : accessed 1 February 2015), Ball State University Student Newspapers.
The annual Freethrow conest was held in the Men's Gym Saturday morning.  Out of 46 contestants John Buckingham prevailed to win the competition, by dropping 90 of 100 freethrow attempts.  The contest was very close, runnerup Gary Lemaster lost by only one shot, hitting 89 of 100 attempts.

Found this tidbit in the Ball State Daily News mentioning my paternal second cousin.  Gary was one of the last players of the Madison Township (Jay County) High School Tomcats, and is the son of John and Helen (Pease) LeMaster.
