Trapshooting - Balfour Intercollegiate Event

By Maree Whiteley | Posted: Monday August 12, 2019

60 competitors participated on a fine but very cold Sunday.

Otago Boys' had a squad of 10 boys attend which allowed us to enter two teams.

The team of Tate Drummond, Harry Brenssell, Henry Sim, Arden O'Donnell and Riley Thompson gained 3rd placing in the Teams Event. 

Perfect scores were hard to come by, but members of the OB's squad were in shoot-offs for placings. Harry Brenssell and Arden O'Donnell for Senior Single Barrel and Ollie Nicholson for Junior Single Barrel. 

Unfortunately, they did not gain any placings. Henry Sim was in a shoot-off for HOA for Single Rise and Senior Single Rise. This saw four competitors start, and eventually left Henry and one other boy. The winner was found after the boys faced 35 targets with Henry coming out the winner. Henry Sim - 3rd Point Score.
