Small­bore shoot­ers aim to win

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINAMENT -

For the sec­ond year in a row Pu­taruru Col­lege small­bore shoot­ers have won the Rest Grade of the National Sec­ondary Schools’ Postal Shoot.

The team in­clud­ing Alex Ca­wood, Ni­cole Davey and Jack West­lake posted a score of 595.28 out of a pos­si­ble 606.

Two of the shoot­ers, Ni­cole, 16, and Jack, 15, were mem­bers of the 2010 win­ning team and were joined this year by 15-yearold Alex.

The team is coached by War­ren Wil­ton and John Hen­der­son, both are ex­pe­ri­enced shoot­ers from the Pu­taruru Small­bore Club.

The coaches were very im­pressed by the scores shot by the in­di­vid­ual shoot­ers in the com­pe­ti­tion, four of the six score cards record­ing 100 plus scores out of a pos­si­ble to­tal 101 points.

Pu­taruru Col­lege has had a small­bore shoot­ing team for the past nine years and the cur­rent squad prac­tices ev­ery Tues­day.
