Local 4-H members at state shooting meet
“Cassie did well considering it was her first time there,” said 4-H County Extension Director Scott Cagle. “She finished in the top 75 percent in her event.”
This was Earnest’s first state competition and she felt good about her initial attempt.
“I felt great about going up there and competing,” Earnest said. “I was happy with my shooting and did better than I thought I was going to do.”
Reeves switched this year from .22 to shotgun for his competition.
“He did well, too,” Cagle said. “He came in in the middle of everybody.”
Reeves wasn’t quite as pleased with his performance.
“I feel I could have done better,” Reeves said of his second trip to state meet. “It was about the same difficulty both years becuase I shot two different categories and the rules were new to me both times.”
Cagle said having two members participate this year was a positive factor in a growing shooting sports program.
“I’m extrememly proud of their efforts and looking forward to others coming up through the ranks and working with all of them in the future.”
Earnest and Reeves both say they will be part of that future.
“I am going to stay with shooting until I can’t shoot anymore,” Earnest said. “I am going to shoot archery next year and air rifle and still shoot .22 rifles. I have four more years to shoot with 4-H and I hope after that I will go somewhere I can still shoot.”
“I will shoot until I’m to old in 4-H and then probably find some other competitions to shoot in because I enjoy shooting,” Reeves said.
