Canes rifles place second at Area 10 Championship

Cartersville High School hosted the Area 10 Championship rifle match last Wednesday and scored their highest team score ever - 1122. Their score landed them a second place finish in Area 10, barely outscoring Allatoona by one point, and Ridgeland by three points. This was the first time the Canes have ever bested Ridgeland in the three-year history of the program. Cherokee took top honors. The Warriors beat the Canes by just two points. Lafayette and Etowah tied with 1107 scores, but Lafayette took fifth place in the area championship with more bullseyes than Etowah.

Caleb Adams led the Canes' scoring efforts with his personal best score, the team's high score, and the match's fourth place score of 287. Freshman, Lucy Evans had the Canes' second-highest and the match's ninth-highest score of 281. Team Captain Angelina Christ shot a 277 as did Katerina Christ - who shot also shot her personal best match score. Freshman Harper Cole Eubanks shot a 272.

Sophomores Caleb Adams and Louis Rangel were recognized for shooting perfect 100 prone scores during the season, and freshman Lucy Evans was recognized for shooting Area 10's highest standing score of the season, a 97.

The Canes move on to the first round of the post-season and will host their first home post-season match on Wednesday, March 8th on their new home range.
