Crowd pleaser

Field and Game - - NATIONAL CARNIVAL -

One young shooter got the crowd on­side dur­ing a day one shootoff to de­cide the C-grade plac­ings

14-year-old Wodonga sub Ju­nior David Prichard stepped up with con­fi­dence and showed ex­pe­ri­ence be­yond his years as pushed a much older com­peti­tor to the wire. “I’m pretty happy with that per­for­mance, it is the best I’ve shot, I en­joyed it a lot,” he said.

David prac­tices at least twice a week and apart from a bit of footy it is his main sport.

“I take it se­ri­ously most of the time but some­times I just want to have fun, I’d like to get re­ally good at it, AA, 25 badges and that sort of stuff.”

From what the crowd saw dur­ing the shoot off, and espe­cially the way he han­dled the pres­sure, those re­wards might not be too far off.
