On Thursday August the 11th Galen participated in the annual North Eastern Zone Clay Target Championships held at Echuca. The competition on this day comprised of a 20 Target Single Barrel event and in the prevailing windy conditions this proved to be challenging and demanding for all of the 175 competitors who attended.
Galen had a number of shooters who performed very well throughout the day with the outstanding result being Kayla Grassi’s second overall in the Senior Girls. This re- sult qualifies Kayla for the State Schoolperson’s Finals to be held in Bendigo in early
September. Great shooting Kayla!
Other Galen students to perform creditably were Jaden Scobie14/20, Jamieson Stewart 14/20 and Braden Ellis 14/20.
