Bonners Ferry High School Team, Dukes Claybusters:

Saturday, June 1

Today we had six shooters, the 16-yard scores were Melanie Campbell 19X25, Wade Rice 22X25, Dave Hathaway shooting his new CZ over under broke 23X25, Wyatt McDonald 22X25, Wyatt Hathaway 21X25, and Ryan Carelli 21X25. Great shooting by all.

Saturday, June 8

Today we had 11 shooters. WOW!, school’s out. The top shooters were Ryan Carelli 23X25 and Melanie Campbell 23X25, followed by Wade Rice 22X25. Kamen Nelson 21X25, Wyatt Hathaway 20X25, Zane Carver 20X25, Colin Fairchild 20X25, Dane Hathaway 18X25, Wyatt McDonald 19X25, Dillon McLeish 19X25, and Jake Cowell 17X25.

Weather today was overcast, cold and windy, a little better scores come with nice, calm weather, everyone shoots better. Very good scores for the conditions today. The wind was really making the targets jump around. I would really like to see shooters, Cassidy, Cade, and Seth back out shooting, or any school student wanting to give it a try — must have passed Hunter Safety Class.
