Thanks to our outstanding supporters, the Four Corners Chapter of SCI provided the San Juan County 4-H Air Rifle Team with a grant to assist in their trip to the National 4-H Shooting Competition this 2018 Season. Read on as they’ve provided us with a recap of their trip.
San Juan County 4-H Air Rifle Team 2018
The San Juan County 4-H Air Rifle Team had an outstanding season this year. The air rifle team placed first at the state competition and qualified for nationals held in Grand Island, Nebraska. At nationals, they competed in three different air rifle events. The air rifle team placed first in the nation for silhouettes and they were runner-up champions overall.
One of the individuals on the team, Amoret McCartney, will be receiving a Junior Distinguished Badge from the Civilian Marksmanship Program after gaining excellence in competition points at the national competition.
The San Juan County 4-H Air Rifle Team didn’t just shoot remarkably but they also had outstanding sportsmanship. The team met a young lady from Florida shooting by herself and the San Juan team took her under their wing and made her a part of their team. They encouraged her just as they would any of their other teammates.
We are so proud of these young shooters and can’t wait to see their great strides in the future.
We always appreciate the support of our donors, buyers and volunteers. Your contributions make this happen. If you would like information on grants offered by Four Corners SCI CLICK HERE.
