Tyler Kangas, a student at Finlandia University, won the North Wind Books Sharpshooter Challenge on Nov. 11. The challenge was at the men’s hockey game against Trine.
For the challenge, there was a board covering the net with a slot at the bottom in the middle. Kangas put his shot from the red line through the slot to win a $250 book voucher from North Wind Books. The North Wind Books challenge will be at all men’s and women’s varsity hockey home games.
There is also a Coca-Cola Sharpshooter Challenge which will be at all varsity men’s hockey home games. If you put your shot in from the blue line you get free Coca-Cola for a year.
There will also be a North Wind Books Half-Court Shot contest at all men’s and women’s basketball home games. If you hit a shot from mid-court, you win a $250 book voucher from Northwind Books.
To enter the contest, just go to the ticket table and fill out the entry form. The Coca-Cola Challenge is open to anyone. The Northwind Books Challenge is only open to current Finlandia University students and the voucher is to be used the next semester.
