Ladies and gentlemen: SM East has a new free throw champion.
Senior Colin Burns shocked the world Sunday when he bested the previously unthinkable high mark of 301 set by then-freshman Davis Morrison in 2013, draining 302 shots from the charity stripe over the course of 20 minutes. Take a bow, Colin.

On the girls side, junior Hannah Nick led the field with 263 shots. Top finishers are listed below:
