Lincolnton senior Chelsea Slentz has been named one of 16 finalists in the American Family Insurance High School Slam Dunk and 3-Point Championships.
A video of highlights of Slentz shooting 3-pointers during games was submitted through the competitionâ€™s Facebook page, and was selected as one of the top 16 videos nationally.
Slentz has been in the first round of a playoff-style bracket since Feb. 20. That round of fan voting, which determines the athletes who advance to the next round, ends today at 1 p.m. Fans can vote by going to the High School Slam Facebook page.
Winners of the competition will be announced on Mar. 19. The grand prize winner from the womens 3-point category will attend the national championship in New Orleans, the site of the 2012 Final Four, from Mar. 29-Apr. 1. The competition will air on CBS.
Slentz finished her high school career with nearly 200 3-pointers, and made 52 of 131 3-point attempts during the 2011-2012 season.
