4-H Rifle Club finishes second in state
Members of the Wilson 4-H Rifle Club senior team celebrate their second-place finish at the state meet in Victoria earlier this month. Team members are (l-r) Coach Nathan Merecka, Jacob Bailey (sophomore, La Vernia), Tristan Summy (junior, La Vernia), Mercedes Guevara (sophomore, Poth), Brandon Williams (senior, La Vernia), and Coach Mario Guevara.
The Wilson 4-H Rifle Club, which has been actively shooting and competing at area meets for more than 50 years, just finished another season.
A total of 54 boy and girl 4-H members between the ages of 9 and 18 participated in the shooting program this year held at the Wilson County Show Barn, and one senior team advanced to the State Roundup Meet held June 7-8 in Victoria. At the meet, individuals shot a total of 60 targets for a possible score of 600. The high score this year came from Rhiann Travis of Parker County, as she shot a 557 to win the state title.
The Wilson County senior team members were Jacob Bailey, Tristan Summy, and Brandon Williams, all of La Vernia, along with Mercedes Guevara of Poth. The team did a fantastic job and took home second-place honors from among a field of 31 counties. Summy led the team with a 12th-place finish, followed by Bailey in 16th, Guevara in 22nd place, and Williams in 44th. There were 120 individual shooters at the state meet.
The team had the support of coaches Nathan Merecka and Mario Guevara. Wilson County will be losing Williams next year due to graduation, but is working on plans to represent Wilson County at the state competition again in 2015.
Those interested in participating in the Wilson 4-H Rifle Club should contact the 4-H Extension office beginning in August at 830-393-7357.
