Tournament Results

Important note: Some of the team medals for Target Archery, 3-D Archery, Air Rifle, and .22 Field Rifle presented at the 2013 Tournament were incorrect due to a team division error that wasn’t caught until after the ceremony.  Some events/divisions were broken into age categories (beg., jr., sr.) instead of being combined per the divisions document on the tournament rules site.  We are posting the correct team outcomes per those listed divisions from the tournament rules site.  Four teams did not receive the medals they should have received based on the posted results.  However, each of these four teams were awarded medals of a higher placing in their respective “age” divisions.  If these teams would like to exchange the medals they received for the medals they should have recieved, they should have their County 4-H Program Coordinator contact Jenny Mercer at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) .  The four teams  affected are St. Clair 3D Sighted 4, St. Joseph Air Rifle 1, Isabella Air Rifle 2, and Hillsdale .22 Field Rifle 1.
