The Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) held a Midwest Regional match May 18-20, 2018, at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex in Sparta, IL.
Despite the wet conditions leading up to the weekend, which made for a great setting for a lone bullfrog spotted on the bays, the match was completed with enthusiasm by the athletes. Intermittent rain and a lightning delay did not dampen the spirits of the teams.
Seven states including Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Iowa, Tennessee and Wisconsin, were represented. There were 76 athletes and a total of 162 entries competing in the five disciplines. Athletes in rookie, intermediate, senior and collegiate divisions participated in the match.
Top teams included Steel Shooters of Traer (IA) in intermediate rimfire pistol, non-collegiate open 1911, collegiate open 1911, intermediate optic rifle and intermediate iron rifle; Bluegrass Sportsmen’s League Steel Cats (KY) in non-collegiate open rimfire pistol; Hoosier Daddy Rifle & Pistol (IN) in collegiate open centerfire and non-collegiate open iron rifle; Arnold Junior Shooter (MO) in senior centerfire; Union Grove (WI) in non-collegiate open centerfire and senior 1911; Ozaukee Scholastic Shooting Sports (WI) in senior iron rifle and senior optics rifle; McKenzie Shooting Sports (TN) in rookie optic rifle and non-collegiate open iron rifle.
