Arianna’s Success at District Shooting Competition

Arianna’s Success at District Shooting Competition

Arianna Stanton from 1st Horsford & St Faiths Scout Group walked away with all the trophies at this year’s District Shooting Competition which was held yesterday at the 1st Taverham Scout Headquarters. Her success was nothing short of exceptional as she took the trophies for the highest score in the Rifle Standing, Rifle Kneeling, Rifle Prone and Pistol individual competition. Her Troop took the overall trophy and she received the trophy for the Individual Combined Highest Score.

While the day belonged to Arianna and the 1st Horsford and St Faiths Scout Group, it was pleasing to have a record number of participating Groups and a very keenly fought competition throughout the day. Mention should also be given to the teams from the 16th Norwich Sea Scouts whose team pushed hard throughout the competition and the 2nd Reepham Scouts who finished a creditable third.

The results were:

  1. 1st Horsford & St Faiths “A” 1167 points
