2019 WV State Team


    The 2019 WV State Team is posted. There were some firsts this year starting with three first year shooters making the team, Megan Snyder, First Team Sub Jr; First Team Jr, Ella Goodwin and Second Team Hattie Scott. Together these three young ladies shot over ten thousand targets last year, Megan topped the list with five thousand two hundred and fifty, Hattie forty eight hundred and Ella twenty six hundred and fifty. That is serious first year shooting! Another first was in the Sr. Vet category both were listed at 89.00 % because of rounding to two digits. Taking it out too six digits before the tie could be broken, tight competition for sure! Of course no less than three All Americans grace the list, Cameron Bailey with a near 96 overall average, Sandy Spencer and Fred Dague. Congratulations to all!
