Rifle Club completes undefeated season

Jason Pratt shot a perfect 200 to lead the Whitehall Rifle Club to its 93rd straight win on its home range.  There was no doubt about this 200, every shot was a center shot making the job of the scorers very easy. This is Jason’s third career perfect score. He finishes the season with a league leading average of 197.8. 

The Whitehall team finishes undefeated at 14-0 and has a team average of 977.5.

Reynolds Road came into the Hollister Road range with no intention of folding to the big guns of Whitehall. Led by J. Little and Sigh Monger they shot almost 30 points over their season average and for awhile, had the Whitehallers thinking. Going into the last relay, this match was by no means over.  Whitehall had only a 3-point lead. But what Whitehall did have was John Hollister and Pete Steffan on the firing line. In a tight match, there are no better shooters than these two guys. When the relay had ended, they had put all doubt aside having shot 198 and 197, respectively.

Louie Pratt and Jim McGinnis were the other team shooters with a 194 and 193. 

Joe DeLorme has a 192 just in case it was needed.

This week the club will host the Tri-County Invitational where each of the eight league team sends three shooters for a fun match. The shooters will simply draw for which team they will be on and all scores will be totaled. The Whitehall Club will be represented by its Juniors Joe DeLorme, Noah Ramey and Sophia Barber.
