Smallbore Rifle team

Sports Dept —

The Masterton Miniature Rifle Club held its annual Intercollegiate Championship on Saturday 10th September. 8 teams competed for the cup, 5 bearing the name of a school and 3 less formal teams. Despite illness and last minute absences of one of our team members and the coach, Naenae College team members, Jacob Wolstenholme, Hazel Taylor and Nathanael Graham still managed 5th place. This just beat Newlands College's #2 team. First place went to Fielding High School with Palmerston North Boys High in second place.

Detailed results (as I recorded them):

577.21 Fielding HS

563.16 PNBHS

559.19 (team not named)

555.11 Newlands 1

529.09 Naenae College

193.05 Jacob Wolstenholme

184.03 Hazel Taylor

152.01 Nathanael Graham

529.05 Newlands 2

528.08 3 blind mice

490.04 3 riflers

Scores are the total of each team’s best 3 shooters, yet the only team with more than 3 shooters was PNBHS (a team of 5).
