As of this year, Amory High School has decided to add a new activity to their arsenal. This being the Mississippi Scholastic Shooting Program, or a Skeet Shooting Team. Coach Chris Pace has decided to take on the challenges of starting this team from the ground up.
This team will include a Junior Varsity team that includes grades 7,8, and 9, and a Senior Varsity team that includes grades 10, 11, and 12. Each team consists of four squads with three people on each.
The program offers different events including individual sporting clays, skeet, and trap; and squad sporting clays, skeet, and trap. The top 50 squads in Mississippi will advance to the state meet, and the top 10 at state will advance to the Southeastern Clay Combine to represent the state of Mississippi.
The first meet of the season will be November 11th at Mclover Shooting Facility in Sardis Mississippi. The members of the team are very excited for this new activity and are very anxious to see how the first season will pan out for the panthers.
