RENO — Lindsay Carr from Douglas County placed first overall in the senior level, competing in .22 rifle, air rifle, archery and air pistol at the 2018 Nevada State 4-H Shooting Sports Match.

Last month, 94 4-H youth ages 9-19 participated in University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Nevada State 4-H Shooting Sports Match. The match, held at the Clark County Shooting Complex, featured competitions in .22 rifle, air rifle, shotgun, archery, muzzleloader and air pistol.

“The State Contest is the end-of-the-season culmination of their activities all year,” said Carrie Stark, Cooperative Extension’s statewide 4-H director. “This is their chance to show what they’ve learned.”

Youth earn the right to compete in the State Contest by reaching standards set by the Nevada State Shooting Sports Advisory Committee. The standards vary for each discipline and age bracket.

At the match, youth may participate in up to four disciplines. Competitors who accumulate a minimum number of points determined by both their chosen discipline and their age division – junior, intermediate or senior – earn a blue ribbon. The top three blue ribbon winners in each competition also earn bronze, silver or gold awards. In addition, each age division has a single overall winner, determined by the combined number of points earned from across all disciplines.

Other local winners were:

.22 rifle: Juniors — Ty Glover, Douglas County, silver; intermediate — Juliet Guerra, Douglas County, silver; seniors — Michelle Grower, Douglas County, gold; Charlotte Guerra, Douglas County, silver.

Gold, silver and bronze winners for the individual competitions are:
