Rifle club bests Reynolds Road 982-941

T he Whitehall Rifle Club finished the regular season on a strong note, by downing visiting Reynolds Road 982-941. The win puts Whitehall in a tie with Galway at 13-1.  Galway out-shot Moreau 968-936. The two teams will meet in Hudson Falls on April 18 for a shoot-off to determine the league champion.


Whitehall’s win over Reynolds Road keeps the team’s home range win streak alive until at least next season. Whitehall has never lost a match on its Hollister Road Range since it opened in January of 2002. That is 86 home range wins. The team has a total win/loss record, for that time span, of 172-5. Four of the five are to Galway.


Louie Pratt and Pete Steffan led the winners with very strong 198s. It was particularly nice for Pete as his 50 in the sitting position means he has not dropped a sitting point this entire season. That is 70 sitting shots without losing a single point.


Jason Pratt had a very good 197 for the number three spot while John and Brain Hollister closed out the top five with 195 and 194. I have mentioned before that Brian has back trouble and cannot get into the sitting or kneeling position so he has to shoot three-off hand strings. To do that and still come up with a 194 is worth another mention.
