4-H’ers hit the ‘bull’s-eye’
The District 10 4-H Rifle Contest was held April 14 in the Wilson County Show Barn. More than 155 4-H members, coaches, and parents from Bandera, Bexar, Blanco, Kendall, Kimble, Kinney, Travis, Medina, and Wilson counties competed at this year’s event. Twenty-four local 4-H’ers competed, and when the smoke cleared out, these 4-H’ers were on target hitting the “bulls’-eye.”
In the Junior Division, Wilson County had two teams that placed first and second.
The first-place team of Chase Bynum, Clayton Matney, Logan Recker, and Amylia Ryan placed first-, second-, third-, and fourth-high-point individual, respectively.
The second-place team of Dylan Willeford, Austin Welfel, Austin Rumsey, and Colton Bennett placed fifth, seventh, ninth, and 10th individually, out of 26 competitors.
At the Junior Intermediate level, Wilson County dominated the competition by placing first, and placing first, second, third, and fourth individually, out of 19 competitors. The first-place team consisted of Asher Welfel, Stephen Jacob, Shawn Holder, and Kyle Dawson.
In the Intermediate Division, the team placed second in a close race. Individually, team members Jacob Bailey, Christopher Jacob, Mercedes Guevara, and Tyler Leyva placed first, third, ninth, and 10th individually, out of 15 competitors.
In the Senior Division, the two Wilson County Sharp Shooters teams outscored the competition, winning first and third place. Team No. 1, Serina Holder, Tristan Summy, Michael Barclay, and Kyle Crowder, placed first, fourth, fifth, and eighth individually.
Team No. 2, Cameron Clark, Blade Eddings, Austin Caka, and Brandon Williams, placed third, 12th, 17th, and 24th individually, out of 38 competitors.
Both Senior Division teams have earned the right to compete at state 4-H Roundup in mid-June at Texas Tech University.
