Father & Daughter win at NSW 5-Stand State Titles

Darren & Mikayla Macartney both had success recently at the 2015 5-Stand State Titles held at Majura Park Gun Club, Canberra.  Darren shot consistently all weekend, even shooting a perfect 25/25 round on Sunday clinching the High Gun with a score of 170/200.  After processing the scores from the weekend, into the new selection criteria for State Champion and NSW team members, Darren took the lead and was crowned SSAA (NSW) 5-Stand State Champion for 2015 by 2.6% and position 1 in the NSW team with fellow members to compete at the Nationals in Toowoomba QLD in July.

Mikayla also had a successful weekend, shooting extremely well in junior grade (u/18’s).  Taking the lead on Saturday afternoon and continuing through to the end of the event with a score of 141/200 in her first major win as SSAA (NSW) 5-Stand Junior Champion, hopefully she can continue this winning form with her father at the Nationals when 2 teams will be selected to compete in New Zealand at the end of the year.
