The state’s best high school basketball shooters gathered at Starland Sports Complex in Hanover on Saturday to compete in the A Shot For Life Challenge. The event, a two-hour shooting marathon with both a boys and girls division to benefit brain cancer research, has featured star local basketball players in the past, such as Needham’s Thomas Shaughnessy (Brown) and Walpole’s Kelly Fogarty (Maine).

On Saturday, it was Will Dorion and Kiki McIntyre’s turn to represent Needham at Shot For Life, while Sydney Scales represented Walpole. From Wellesley, rising senior and Colby College-committed guard Brooke Guiffre shot 85.7 percent to win the girls division.

McIntyre and Guiffre were both named Globe/Herald All-Scholastic for the efforts last winter. Scales, McIntyre, and Guiffre were all named Bay State Conference All-Stars, with Guiffre also earning Bay State Conference MVP honors. Meanwhile on the boys end, Dorion was named a Bay State Conference All-Star and the league MVP.

“I was super excited because I’d heard about this program for so long,” said a humbled Guiffre. “There have been so many great players in it. I was really honored to be a part of it.”
