I was going into this Matchplay Shooter of the Year tournament mostly not confident because I hadn’t gotten to practice much since I was moving. Once I started shooting, I consistently shot high above the target every time. My dad came to the line and said “Hey, its 50m not 60m!” I had my sight on the wrong mark! Good thing I was still on practice rounds.
Once I started the scoring round, it started pouring down rain. Apparently this is no big deal in Florida if there is no lightning so everyone just shoots through it. I thought it would slow down but it never really did. It rained the entire tournament except for the last end and during matchplay. I looked like I had walked out of the shower and had to wring water out of everything constantly.
Throughout the tournament I shot decent for being soaked and no practice for a week. After the tournament, I shot well and in the matchplay round I ended up with a Bronze medal. YAY! My first Florida medal!
Shout out to Coach Scott! Was this post good enough for you? Haha 🙂
