On Saturday, Sawyer, Victoria, Madeline and Garrett participated in the Flathead Shooting Sports Invitationals. The kids did wonderful!
The boys started things out in archery, Sawyer shooting olympic recurve and Garrett shooting barebow. This was Sawyer’s first year shooting in this discipline and Garrett’s second.
Garrett received a silver medal in his age group and Sawyer placed 6th in his.
Then the boys went on to shoot in air pistol…
Garrett won an amazing “Over-All” trophy for his age group with a score of 313 out of 400. His first year shooting air pistol and his first competition!
Sawyer received a bronze medal in his age division!
We had to do a little entertaining with Em…
Then it was on to archery again with the girls shooting barebow and Sawyer shooting primitive.
The day did have a few hiccups though, Maddie’s bow broke 2 days before the competition and she had to use a bow that she had never shot with. So she didn’t shoot real well and ended up not placing. Sawyer pinched his shooting finger in his bow the day before while stringing it and split the finger wide open. It made for a bit of frustration on his part dealing with a hurt finger.
The kids did very well though, even Emma…
Tori ended up placing 2nd and receiving a silver medal in her age bracket, only loosing 1st place by 2 points!
Sawyer ended up placing first and received a gold medal in primitive.
They still have the Club Match and State is right around the corner!
