Youth Airgun Update
|Posted by Christopher Hall on February 28, 2013 at 9:10 AM|
Some of the biggest news is the move to the new range facility housed in the new Boys and Girls Club building. Warm, dry and well-lit, this range is now arguably the best indoor airgun range in the Maritimes.
Youth shooting is in full operation and big things are happening. Emily Dean placed 11th in her category at the Australian Youth Olympics match with Team Canada near the end of January. She has also been selected for ISSF World Cup matches in Korea and Germany. As of now her plans are to participate in the Germany match.
Emily, Delayne Donahue, James Boyd and Scott Ring competed in the Toronto Grand Prix on Feb. 16-17. In air pistol, Scott took the silver medal in the sub-junior class. In air rifle: Emily took bronze in the expert class with a score of 94.6 while Delayne took gold in the sub-junior class with a score of 94.1. James took bronze in the expert class. Finally, Emily & Delayne took silver in the teams class (as Don’s Dynamic Duo). Unfortunately, Emily & Delayne just missed out on the finals placing 9th and 10th in ladies air rifle overall, as only the top 8 shooters enter a finals competition.
Delayne, James and Kloe also recently competed in a match in Woodstock. Delayne placed first in Womens Rifle, Kloe placed third in Womens Rifle and James placed first in Mens Rifle.
Congratulations to all.
