Air Rifle Open

The College Team, consisting of Nathan Graham, John Kelly, Jonathan Campbell and Andre Renaud, travelled up to Vanderbijlpark to compete in the Oranje-Vaal Open over last weekend.

All four of the boys achieved an MQS set for them before departure, some by a narrow margin, as preparations begin for Nationals later in the year. Although none of the boys were in the medals, Nathan Graham shot very well to take 4th position in the U16 age group.

Perhaps it would be worth mentioning that the achievements of the team are really significant. Imagine playing a game of squash without any boundary walls; or having to train for rowing in a wooden fishing boat, and then to compete in a regatta. With an outdoor facility subject to weather extremes, the shooters achieve very well in a sport which is done indoors. They live up to the College motto.
