Marsha’s Minute
“This was actually a close match and I’m glad we came out ahead,” said head coach Marsha Beasley. I feel like we should have been a few points higher in smallbore.  We know what we need to work on and I look for us to fill the holes in our performance.

“We won the match on our strength of our air rifle performance. All four of our counters were solid and it was nice to see Kamilla shoot a 592 for the second match in a row. I was especially glad to see the team do well in air after struggling a bit in smallbore.”

Up Next…
