Winners of YMCA’s second Punt, Pass & Kick contest announced

Three dozen boys and girls participated in the second annual Newton YMCA Punt, Pass and Kick Contest on Sept. 29.

Each child competed in all three phases and in a timed 40-yard dash for prizes in their grade division.

The overall winners for the competition were Jackson Nichols (K-1), Conner Maston (2-3) and Derek Lanser (4-6).

“It was a great morning and a lot of fun to have all the kids out on the field Saturday morning,” said Tom Vanderlaan, Executive Director of the Newton Y.

The cost for the event was $5 per child and all proceeds went directly to support youth sports programs at the Y.

“We are hoping to make it bigger and better each year,” Vanderlaan said.
