White County was proudly represented at the Nashville Gun Club, on May 1, 2021, by the 4-H Trap Team, The White County Woodsmen. This competition was the State 4-H Shotgun Jamboree.
The competition is a rigorous activity that demands scored points for the Senior members in both disciplines of American Trap and American Skeet. The Junior members are required to shoot 100 rounds in American Trap only. White County sent a total of 16 members who competed against 209 other shooters.
There are six seniors who qualified for the State invitational at Maury County in September:
Cole Vickers scored 83, Owen Taylor scored 81, Jayden Keith scored 81, Braxton Golden scored 81, Tyson Gooch scored 77, and Kenneth Bryant scored 76 out of 100 rounds. Only the top 70 shooters get to move on and receive an invitation for the next round.
The other Seniors that participated were Lillie Roberts, Casey Geer, Zane Johnson, Tara Molbert, and Warren Brandes. They narrowly missed the qualifying amount.
The Juniors, all first-year shooters, impressively shot over 50 percent. All of them missing by only a couple points for moving to next competition were:
Ethan Riis, Ty Measles, Rebecca Phipps, Abram Lawson, and Jesse Elam
The White County 4-H club; their coaches, Jennifer and Cody Roberts; and their parents are proud of their remarkable scores and sportsmanship of the White County Woodsmen 4-H Shooting Sports Teams. Their willingness, determination and hard work has paid off this season. We look forward to next season.
