A squad of 8 boys headed to Invercargill for the South Island Secondary Schools Clay Target event in the first weekend of the holidays.
There were 110 shooters from schools across both the South and North Island. The team of Harry Brenssell, Tate Drummond, Riley Thompson, Arden O'Donnell and Henry Sim were on equal points with Christchurch Boys' High School for the teams event - only 1 point behind the winning team from Lincoln High School.
A shoot off saw CBHS come away with the silver medal and Otago Boys' the bronze which was a reversal of the interschool result held the day before.
On the Sunday the boys were at the Scott Shield School Shoot at Nightcaps. A good number of the students who competed at the Saturday event were again shooting at this event. The team shot very well which saw them win the teams event claiming the Scott Shield. Henry Sim also came 1st in the Point Score event.
A very tiring but successful weekend for the boys.
