This year the British Schools Pistol Shooting Competition was carried out as a postal shoot, with scores sent through once competitors shot their targets. Each competitor had to complete four targets, taking five shots in each from 10 meters. 18 students from Leweston took part across the three age categories; Junior (Years 6 to 8), Intermediate (Years 9 and 10), and Senior (Years 11 to 13).
Our competitors had fantastic success in the South West regional round with the Junior A Team (Evanna B, May S, Amelia O) finishing second and qualifying for British Schools finals, and Junior B Team (Isla JC, Henrietta J, Rupert T) finishing third.
In the Intermediate competition Ginny B finished second with an impressive score of 183. Whilst Intermediate A Team (Ginny B, Honor G, Nikita M) achieved Gold! B Team (Molly C, Millie W, Fenella T) also did brilliantly and finished second with both teams qualifying for the British Schools Finals. Well done to the C Team (Flora SB, Bruce R, Reece W) who competed well and finished in third.
We are extremely proud of all our competitors who performed brilliantly to achieve fantastic results. Well done to the three teams who qualified for the British Schools Finals, which will also be a postal shoot with the deadline 27 April.
