Julia Golub, a 14-year-old Danville girl, went to the California State Free Throw championship in Fresno on March 21 and captured third place in a shootout in the girls 14 division. She had successfully competed at the local, district and regional competitions and represented the East Bay team, the Oakland Diocese.
She is an eighth-grader at Los Cerros Middle School and has enjoyed playing CYO basketball for St. Isidore's during the past six years with a remarkable shooting eye and ability to make free throws. She practices four times a week, shooting approximately 200 free throws a day. Although she was nervous about competing, she said she was confident and focused on giving her best efforts.
