Marsha’s Minute

“This was an interesting day,” said head coach Marsha Beasley.  While the overall score wasn’t where we want it to be, there were some excellent performances and the team did many things well. We are for happy for Abby to fire a 581 in smallbore and Kamilla a 595 in air rifle. Personal bests are an excellent measure of progress, and I am delighted we continue to set personal bests each match.”
