The team’s hard work of shooting and practicing all season when the weather was both sweltering and frigid prepared them to focus today on their one round of 20 shots each. Luther nudged out Woodward for the win.
FFA Advisor Holly Drake issued a congratulations and thank you after the big win.
“Words can not express how proud I am of our shooting team members. We’ve put in a lot of practice in the hot and cold, shot a lot of shells, and coached each other through good and bad days. Today our Jr team came up a little short. I’ve seen these kids shoot better, and I know they will bounce back. Our Sr team got it done today. State Champions!!
We would like to thank Matt & Misha Mohr for hosting our teams practices. As well as, Danny Grounds and Hank Hughes for running throwers so the kids could focus on shooting. And thanks to Luther BancFirst for sponsoring the teams shirts this year. The tradition continues,” said Drake.
