MN Smallbore 3 Position and 4 Position State Championship – July 9 and 10, 2011
We had two good matches this past weekend. During the first stage of Saturday's prone shooting there was a heavy rain. But, by the end of the second stage, the rain had stopped and conditions remained good for the remainder of the day. Sunday was perfect for shooting.
Larry Sawyer was the 4-P State Champion on Saturday and Alex Giesar was the top junior shooter. On Sunday, Larry Sawyer was the 3-P State Champion and Carmen Fry out shot all the other juniors for the Junior State Championship. Jonell Sawyer was the high woman shooter on both days.
Nick Learn, a sub junior from South Range, Wisconsin established a new National record in Saturday's 4-P match with a score of 1531-36X.
We had fourteen shooters each day. Nine of them were junior shooters who represented the State of Minnesota and the shooting sports with great skill and poise. I hope they can all make it back for the State Prone Match on August 27 & 28, 2011.
