With only a few weeks to go until the end of the season it's great to see so many people filling the gaps in their club competition shoots. Analin Rudd's 96.5 was the top score in the lower grades. Inge Little led B Grade with a 99.4 followed by Jaz Hamilton's 98.4. Top shot of the night was shared by Bex Baines and Megan Brodie, who both scored 100.7. They both also shot a second hundred (100.4 and 100.6 respectively) - great shooting! The 20-shot competition was almost as close. Evan Little top scored for the night with 198.11, one inner ahead of Bex's 198.10. Kate Yu shot a new 20-shot PB of 194.5 - congratulations!
The final round of the interclub competition was held last Tuesday. Our C Grade team had a bye but it was still an important match for us. Melrose had to win their match against Wellington Central to win for the season. They managed to beat Wellington Central by two points, placing Brooklyn second for the season.
Our B Grade team had an impressive win against South Wellington, recording their highest score for the season of 387.18.
