State BB-Gun Championship held at LA



Livingston Pioneer team members are, front row from left, Edward Brown, and Samantha Looper, back row, Hunter Garrett, Stephen Brown, Ben Brown, Maria Sandrock, and Jerermy Clayton.

The Tennessee State BB Gun Championship was held at Livingston Academy on April 21, hosted by Livingston Jaycees.

Dylan Loftis from the Bend of the River BB-Gun team came in with a 561 to take the State BB-Gun Championship.

The shooting match had 27 participants from across the state. This year teams attended from Nashville MBA, Livingston, and Cookeville.

Second place went to Jake Connor from Bend of the River with 550, and 3rd went home with Meredith Daniel from Bend of the river with 543.

The contest consists of a 100 point test over gun safety, 100 points in prone, 100 points in standing, 100 points in sitting and 100 points in kneeling. The top 8 shooters are then called on for another standing string of 100 points standing. These last standing competitions are shot one at a time and the point value and the total score is read after each shot. The first award in the test went to Hannah Mackie with 92 and 2 points on the test-off. The second test was won by Jeremy Clayton from Livingston at 92+0, and the third went to Paul Brazil from MBA with 90+15

The next stage of the match was prone. Caleb Mackie from Bend of the River was 1st with 95 and 4 center points. Second prone went to Hunter Woolwine from MBA with 93. Drew Murray from Bend of the River with 92+7 managed 3rd place.

Standing usually has the lower scores and that held true for this year. Maria Sandrock from Livingston was 1st with 88. Hannah Mackie won over Stephen Brown from Livingston with 85 + 5 to Brown’s 85 + 2.

Sitting had the highest scores in this match. The winner was Jeremy Clayton with 98. Stephen Brown had 94+8 to take 2nd, and Conner Yakuski from MBA was 3rd with 94 and 7 center points.

Kneeling was the next shooting stage. Stephen Brown was 1st with 93. Jeremy Clayton was 2nd with a close 91, and Hannah Mackie almost upset the apple cart to take 3rd with 90. After the kneeling competition, lunch was provided by Livingston Dairy Queen.

In the shoot-off, Dylan Loftis had a 91. Jacob Connor had a 94, which changed him from 3rd to 2nd place. Stephen Brown and Maria Sandrock went to the shoot-off tied at 442. Brown had a 89 and Sandrock had an 86, which gave 6th to Brown and 7th to Sandrock.

The Bend of the River Blue ‘Possums won the team match with 2257. The team was made up by Jacob Connor, Meredith Daniel, Dylan Loftis, Caleb Mackie and Hannah Mackie, with Drew Murray and Wesley Gothard as alternates.

The second Jaycees team was the Livingston Pioneers with 2159 points. The Pioneers were Samantha Looper, Jeremy Clayton, Maria Sandrock, Stephen Brown, and Ben Brown, with Edward Brown and Hunter Garrett alternates.

The third Jaycees team was Keith Morris, Eamon Morris, Jackson Haffner III, and John Allen Tinkel. Alternates were Livingston’s Tyler Carmack and Savanah Clayton with 1473 points.

The MBA team was the first Open Team and had 1983 points. The team was made up by Reagan Hughes, Hunter Woolwine, Connor Yakushi, Paul Brazil, and Michael Greif, with Matt Anderson an alternate.
The alternates are available to substitute for any team member unable to
finish the match.

The alternates are given a separate award. The 1st place alternate was Wesley Gothard from Bend of the River with 509. Second went to Drew Murray from Bend of the River with 416. And 3rd went to Livingston’s Hunter Garrett with 405.

The 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams in each division are invited to the International BB-Gun Championship Match.

The David Shakleford Award is given to the competitor with the highest 4-position shooting score. This year the award was won by Dylan Loftis with 380 points, just 10 points shy of the national record of 390.

Shooters who have participated at the International BB Gun Match are not permitted to attend two years in a row. They may continue in two years if they are still young enough. These shooters are invited to the State Match as Champion of Champions. This year that went for Brady Riddle from Bend of the River with 516 points.

This was the last BB-gun shoot of the regular season. The next BB-gun match is the International match in Bowling Green, KY, on June 30 and July 1.

The program begins in January and continues until the state championships in April, and is open to individuals from the age of 8 to 15. Both boys and girls are encouraged to participate. Many of the current college and Olympic shooters have come the Jaycees B-B gun program, which has been in existence for 38 years.
