The tenth annual Schools Challenge clay shooting competition held its final stage on Saturday 12th December at the Oxford Gun Company ground.
Bredon School in Gloucestershire had 5 students that qualified for the final; Max Haywood, Toby Hammond, Sam Morton, Tom Scott and Sam Willies.
After a fantastic day of shooting, with some outstanding individual performances, Bredon’s Tom Scott finished in first place and walked away with an amazing prize – a £15,000 car!
Bredon’s Max Haywood also performed incredibly throughout the course of the day, really stepping up to the challenge when he found it tough. Max finished in 3rd place overall and his efforts rewarded him with a £2,500 gun from Rizzini – with the chance to visit Italy and have the gun made to fit his personal specification!
Bredon Headmaster Mr David Ward said, “What an achievement for all the participants, but of course our warmest congratulations go to the team from Bredon who have worked tremendously hard throughout the season to practice and pull in great results throughout the stages.
“Clay shooting is a big part of the sports curriculum at Bredon, and we’ve even invested in our shooting ground at School. Today shows that investment to be worth it.”
