On Friday, Feb. 23, the annual Three Point and Dunk contest at Ventura High School was held in the Tuttle Gym.

The dunk contest is ran by ASB and anyone is able to watch the contestants play basketball if they choose.

The participants can either shoot three point shots for two minutes or have two opportunities to dunk the basketball. The scoring for the three point shooting contest is by points and every competitor is against one another. The dunk contest is judged by if they make it and then their style behind it, according to junior Grace Steiner.

The contestants got to walk on the court with introductory music of their choice. Junior Cameron Delzeit said he joined the three point contest because it “seemed fun.”

Delzeit also plays basketball at VHS. In total, there were 15 contestants signed up between the two contests, but ASB accepted same day contestants as well.

Senior Jazmine Carrasco won the three point contest and senior Joey Thompson won the dunk contest. Both received gold spray painted basketballs made by ASB.
