Rifle Club loses to Galway

O nce again, the Whitehall Rifle Club suffered a tough road loss to a young Galway team.  This is the third consecutive year the combination of a long drive and the good shooting of a youthful Galway team has given Whitehall fits.


Whitehall didn’t shoot bad–978 is a good score–but Galway’s 980 was better.  Galway’s team is very young and very consistent.  Both teams actually shot better this week then the week before and it should be a very competitive season.


John Hollister led Whitehall with a 197 while Heather Tillson and K. Ogden had 197s for Galway.


Jason Pratt was the #2 shooter for Whitehall, at Galway, with 196 while Dick McMore in his first try this season also had 196.  Pete Steffan was fourth with 195 while Jim McGinnis rounded out the team with 194.


An interesting note is that the average age of the top five Galway shooters is 18 years old, while Whitehall’s is 54.


This week the locals hope to get back into the win column, but it won’t be easy.  Hartford, which shot a very good 983 in the first week, will visit the Hollister Road range of the Whitehall Club.
