SAR Completes Spring 2017 Missouri State Tournament

Imperial, MO – Helias Catholic High School served as an excellent host for the more than 45 students from various schools who participated in the May 6, 2017 SAR Missouri State Tournament.

“This is only the second SAR tournament in history and the scores are already starting to climb,” noted Jan Morris with SAR. “Josh Bricker’s score of 272 beat out the 2016 top score of 268 by 4 points. Students shot 5 practice shots followed by 30 scored shots all at a distance of 10 meters for a total score of 300 points. Overall, scores were very impressive showing practice and commitment by the participating students.”

Bricker and Sadie Guess, high overall shooters for male and female, both received a trophy in addition to an engraved Embark Air Rifle donated by Umarex USA commemorating their achievement.
