There are some great shooters in the South Okanagan.

The BC High School Rodeo Association (BCHSRA) hosted a small bore shooting event at the South Okanagan Sportsmen’s Association last week and six young adults from the Oliver area participated.

The contestants shot .22 caliber rifles at a distance of 50 yards in three different positions: prone, kneeling and standing.

First place and Senior Girl High Point went to Willowbrook local Vanessa Caverly, second place and Senior Boy High Point went to Gallagher Lake local Cash James, and third place went to Shenelle Neyedli of Peachland.

The top four placers now qualify to attend the National High School Rodeo Finals in Rock Springs Wyoming in July.

  1. Congratulations! 3 position smallbore is a tough sport! An Olympic event, even. And I’ve unsuccessfully competed against some of BC’s best, so I know. Keep up the effort, because it could introduce you to come of the best people in the world. You’ll never regret it.
