Shooters Open Season
The 2020 South Dakota BB Gun season began with a different look for the Marshall County Shaprshooters.
With construction taking place in Doland, Spink County did not have a facility to host its annual opening tournament. But with the Orion Scoring Stem teams are able to host a virtual tournament where teams shoot at their home range and then are able to scan targets into the virtual tournament online.
With the season opener being a virtual tournament, it opened it up to teams who preferred to not travel and ended with 204 competitors. The large competition did not stop the Marshall County Sharpshooters from shining brightly. In the 12 and up division Marshall County finished first, third, and fifth with both the 10 & 11 year-old team and the 8 & 9 year-old team ending in second place.
