Great job to these winners and all who participated. The next level of competition is at Waterloo High School on February 22nd at 1 pm. These winners should report there (1464 Industry Rd, Atwater) at 12:30 pm, along with a copy of their birth certificates. They will get 25 shots at this level.
Some advice from Mr. McCarty to all: Practice all that you can, and when you compete at Waterloo, relax and take your time between shots. When you concentrate, you usually make your shot. You may win here and go on to compete at the state level.
