Magnolia Panthers take Shooting Sports Junior Division South Regional Tournament - Receives Donation from Magnolia Junior Charity League The Magnolia Panthers Junior Team 1 recently competed in the South Region Junior Division tournament at the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation Jacksonville Shooting Sports Complex. The team won the event by hitting 111 clays out of 125 attempts. This was a total team effort as members Ike Ainsworth, Hastin Delaney, Wyatt Ainsworth and Kaden Williams all posted scores of 23. Team captain, John Colquitt, held down the anchor position with a score of 19. Second- and third-place teams were so closely matched it came down to a tiebreaker to determine their finishing order. Texarkana Razorback Trap Team Red Squad and Nashville Scrapper Junior 1 both broke 104 clays out of a possible 125, but Texarkana who won the tiebreaker. “The competition can be that tight,” Jimmy Self, Arkansas Youth Shooting Sports Program coordinator for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, said. “We also had another tie for seventh and eighth place in which all five shooters posted identical scores, in that case it comes down to the captain of each team’s score.” Magnolia is one of the top 16 West Region Junior teams to advance to the AYSSP State Championship. The event will be held June 3, where the team will compete against the best shooters from the other three regions. To aid in the costs that Magnolia Trap teams have during the year, the Magnolia Junior Charity League recently made a $1,500 donation to trap coach, Daniel Davis. Much of the money will be used to purchase matching shirts for team to wear at the state competition and provide meals for the team.
