Chattooga County 4-H Shotgun team held a district qualifier today. Four counties were represented: Chattooga, Dade, Spalding and Harralson.
Chattooga had ten senior shooters and five junior shooters. A senior shooter (9th – 12th grade) must shoot 20 out of 25 targets to qualify, while a junior shooter (7th-8th ) must shoot 16 out of 25 targets.
Nine seniors and five juniors qualified to advance to the state competition held on May 7th at Rock Eagle.
Additionally, medals were given to the individual who had the highest score and the team that had the highest combined score in both the junior and senior divisions. Several shooters had the same score, so a doubles shoot-off decided the tie.
