DeLorme youngest top five

T he Whitehall Rifle Team remained on a collision course with Galway by downing visiting Moreau last Thursday, 974-950. With one match to go, both teams are 12-1. A win by both this week would mean a shoot off in Hudson Falls on April 18.

In last week’s match a bit of history was made in that 15 year old Joe DeLorme was the youngest shooter to make the Whitehall top five in at least the 43 years this writer has been associated with the club. Joe’s 192 not only put him in the top five for Whitehall but he out-shot every senior shooter on the opposing team.

John Hollister was the top shooter on the night with a 198 followed closely by Jason Pratt with a 197. Pete Steffan was third with a 194. Pete’s 50 in the sitting position means that he has not lost a point in sitting this entire season. A 50 sitting this week will be a personnel accomplishment Pete has strived for since the death of his good friend Charlie Fountain. Charlie was a charter member of the Whitehall Rifle Club and a mentor of Pete. Charlie would always get after Pete if he dropped a point sitting.

Reynolds Road will visit the Hollister Road range this week as the locals need to stay focused and not find themselves looking ahead to Galway. The Whitehall Club’s Hollister Road Range opened on January 3, 2002. Whitehall has never lost a match on this range at 69-0. We’ll be looking for #70 this week.
