Clay Target Shooting Report v Napier Boys’ High School - Thursday 27 August
Mr Higgie has known Mr Terry Wyatt, the coach of the Napier Boys’ High School Clay Target Shooting team, in a range of sporting and educational settings for the last 25 years. It was their great pleasure to contend the inaugural ‘Higgie Wyatt’ trophy as part of the Polson Banner Exchange on Thursday 27 August. The event was contested over two disciplines – 25 targets Single Rise and 25 targets Points Score giving each shooter a total out of 100 and the teams a possible score of 500.
After the Single Rise scores were pretty even, as both teams found the swirling wind and light conditions a little tricky. As so often happens, Points Score proved the difference with Greg Wood continuing his great form to score the perfect 75 / 75 with Josh Bergersen right behind him on 74. The team totals were PNBHS 462 to Napier’s 433.
A huge vote of gratitude to Napier Boys’ and their families for being such great hosts. It was a wonderful day.
