Rising star Ronnie Green claimed the Clive Stanton Memorial Trophy at the British Schools & Young Shots Championship on Saturday 6 May after a tense shoot-off.
Ronnie hit 46 on the Red course, as did Charlie Soanes and Charlie Monahan, and the three had to enter an eight-target decider for the top prize. But Ronnie’s five forced the Charlies to share the Runner Up prize.
An incredible score of 230 from Bloxham A secured the top team prize on the Red course. They finished 12 ahead of Strathallan A, with Stowe A and Warwick A sharing third place.
Despite missing out on the top prize, Charlie Soanes teamed up with his dad Philip to hit 90, and the top Old Pupils team came from Kimbolton on 125.
Across the 50 clays of the Blue course, Northampton High School’s Kirstin Vogel topped the Ladies competition to win the Shotgun & Chelsea Bun Club, but she also hit the highest score on the course. Her 45 secured double the amount of Mercury Hearing vouchers to get herself a new set of custom ear defenders. She also did the business in the Parent & Child Category as the duo combined for 93.
Bloxham achieved continued success as its B team shot 227, 11 clays ahead of Millfield, with Warwick in third. And Bloxham’s Thomas Owen also picked up the Cadet High Gun by default after tying with Max Whitehead.
The top two Ladies squads came from King’s High, with the A team hitting four targets more than the B team, which scored 95.
The Under-14s competition saw Bloxham do the triple by picking up the third team competition with a score of 69 to win £500 from BASC to go towards clay shooting activities.
There was a tense finish to the individual competition as four Under-14s hit 30ex-32. Alfie Tibbles, Charlie Madden, Ben Killian and Luke Twigger shot for the BASC Shield top prize and Alfie came out on top with a score of six.
But Ben got by with a little help from his dad to win the Parent & Child category.
