4H shotgun team places at state

Seven Franklin County 4-H students participated in the State Shotgun Championship April 13-14 in Childersburg, and five placed in different categories of the competition.

Davis Lindsey, James Hal, Levi Baker, Sully Hall, Jackson Mitchell, Fallin Cox and Reagan Lindsey from Franklin County participated with Colbert County’s 4-H students – Peyton Flanagan, Nathan Richardson, Jordan Collum, Walsh Nelson, Kolton Robinson, Trey McWilliams, Cody Richardson and Robby Ahlstrom – to make up a team of 15.

The championship took place at the Red Eagle Skeet and Trap Club.

Reagan Lindsey placed on the first-place senior trap team. Jackson Mitchell and Davis Lindsey placed on the first-place junior trap team. Mitchell also joined Sully Hall and Levi Baker on the third-place sporting clays team and took third place in junior trap individual.

The competition consisted of two rounds of skeet (50 targets), two rounds of trap (50 targets) and 50 sporting clay targets.

According to Franklin County 4-H Agent Janet Lovelady, the 4-H Shooting Awareness Fun Education programs build character, self-confidence and self-discipline while developing marksmanship skills in the participants.

“Because of their dedication to the sport, they have developed an appreciation for the environment and the outdoors, and it has helped shape them into respectful, upstanding and disciplined citizens,” Lovelady said.

The club meets at Cedar Hill Trap Range on the second Saturday of every month at 10 a.m.
