Written by Arn Eccles- Co Coordinator for Johnson County 4-H Shooting Sports

Six Johnson County 4-H Shooting Sports members went to Grand Island, Nebraska this summer, competing in 4-H Shooting Sports National Championships.  Members and teams representing 9 disciplines competed against each other as individuals and as part of their state teams.  Teams of up to 4 members from Kansas were picked from top placing individuals at Kansas 4-H State Shooting Sports matches.  Individuals may only participate in an individual discipline once at Nationals during their 4-H career.  Awards were presented for each of 3 days of competition and overall discipline winners.

Chase competed in Air Pistol and Abby placed 7th.  Kansas Air Pistol team placed 2nd and was coached by Sara Eccles and Damon Lawrenz.  Ben placed 1st in Air Rifle.  Kansas Air Rifle team placed 1st and was coached by Jason Rogers.  Becca competed in Recurve Archery, and the Kansas team was coached by Ethan Eccles.  Jacob and Isaac competed in Muzzle Loading, and the Kansas team was coached by Mike Smith. A big shout out to all of the above coaches that work with and support our local Johnson County 4-H program! 

Johnson County 4-H Shooting Sports members worked hard to practice and prepare for Nationals after succeeding at their state match events.  Congratulations to these Johnson County 4-H members for representing Kansas well!
