Rifle Team Results submitted by Coach Victoria Hedman

This weekend the VHS rifle team traveled to Fairbanks to compete in a multi-team competition at Tanana Valley Sportsman's Association. Valdez, Lathrop, Hutchison, West Valley, and Delta high schools all shot in the competition.

This was the first match this year that Valdez shot paper targets vs. competing on an electronic system, which presented an additional challenge for our shooters and proved to be a good learning experience.

Earlier in the week, all five teams shot a 60 shot standing air match. Valdez came in second with a score of 2235 with 77 center shots (a team personal best). Delta took first with 2247 points with 80 center shots.

On Friday- Valdez shot in a 3 by 20 small-bore match against Lathrop and Hutchison, scoring 2098 points to Lathrop's 2107 and Hutchison's 2118 points. The combined air and small-bore scores gave Valdez the overall first place position with 4333 points and 109 center shots.

On Saturday Valdez shot another 3 by 20 against West Valley and Delta. Valdez shot well with 2147 total points. West Valley and Delta scored 2111 points and 2145 points respectively. With the combined air and small-bore scores, Delta took the first-place position for the day and Valdez took second.

Tiffany Larcom took second overall on Friday and first overall on Saturday. She also shot a personal best in the air match- 567 points with 25 center shots.

Each shooter improved their scores on Saturday over their Friday shoot.

The VHS rifle team will have two weekends off before going to compete in the Mid Alaska Championships (MAC) December 7-8.

ALL-STATE MUSIC FESTIVAL

Three Buccaneer musicians were accepted to participate in the ASAA All-State Music Festival this past weekend. Jillian Fleming, Caitlin Mond, and Isaiah Silveira were chosen from 594 submitted auditions for vocal music to participate in the mixed choir. Chase Randall was an alternate for Bass 1, the most competitive of all auditioning sections. The three students participated in two and a half days of rehearsal at Chugiak High School preparing for a Gala Concert on Saturday evening at West High's auditorium. Caitlin and Jillian were Alto 2 vocalists and Isaiah was a Tenor 2. Isaiah also was in the top three of all tenor 2 submissions and competed for first chair honors. He also auditioned for a solo at the event. Mixed Choir was conducted by Dr. Lee Oleson of Dallas, Texas.

The final performance was breathtaking, moving, and fun. Treble Choir, Orchestra, and Band are also All-State events that performed on Saturday.

No events this next week. Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
