Sullivan's Sharpshooters attend the Maryland YHEC State Shoot

posted Jun 27, 2018, 10:55 AM by Richard Wilkinson

Sullivan's Sharpshooters attended the Maryland State YHEC Shoot on June 16th and 17th. One Senior and five Juniors made the journey. It was a long hot day with temperatures in the 90s but the kids enjoyed themselves and kept their spirits up throughout the day.  We renewed some old acquaintances and made some new ones. Competitors form Virginia and Maryland were also present for the event on the beautiful grounds of the Potomac Fish and Game Club.

Our Senior, Alex Morton took 4th on the Hunter Responsibility Test and 3rd in Shotgun.

The Junior Team consisted of Hannah Wiehe, Riley Cowl, Dan Wheeler, Mackenzie Wiehe, and Kaitlin Wheeler

Junior Kaitlin Wheeler took 1st in Muzzleloader
Junior Hannah Wiehe took 3rd in Rifle, 2nd in Muzzleloader, and 3rd in Archery
Junior Dan Wheeler took 2nd in Shotgun

Our Junior Team took 1st place overall and most  rewarding of all (at least from our coach's perspective) they were recognized for their behavior and sportsmanship by being awarded the "Team of the Year" award.

Congratulations to the other winners. The hard work and dedication of all the participants was on display for everyone to see.

Our thanks go out to all the members of the Maryland YHEC Organization, the Potomac Fish and Game Club, and all the volunteers who helped make the event a success.



2018 NY YHEC State Shoot scores have been posted

The final scores for the 2018 NY YHEC State Shoot have been added to the resources page in PDF format.

Congratulations to all the winners. We hope all the participants had a good time and hope we will see them again next year.

It was discovered after the awards ceremony that there was a conflict in the amount of bonus points stated for muzzleloader at the morning briefing and what was initially scored. Examining the issue we attempted to make the fairest decision we could which caused a change in the placement of the Seniors for Muzzleloader. We apologize for the confusion, and no doubt disappointment, that this has caused. The individuals involved all did a stellar job and this error on our part shouldn't detract from their performance.

Please note that the scoring listed as "Responsibility " is the combined total of the written exam, Wildlife ID, and the Hunter Safety Trail. It is broken down in the individual listings.
