TWO SEDBERGH SCHOOL PUPILS CHOSEN TO ATTEND UK CADET RIFLE TEAM SELECTION
Katherine Fleck (L) and George Bentley (S) will travel to the National Shooting Centre at Bisley in March to attend a selection weekend for the UK Cadet Rifle team tour to Jersey in August of this year. 18 candidates have been selected and it is very pleasing to see Sedbergh represented twice over.
The selection weekend will involve shooting full-bore target rifles with iron sights at targets from distances up to 600 yards. It is also an excellent opportunity to learn how to improve one’s rifle shooting as well as meet other young shots.
It should be an enjoyable and interesting weekend and we wish Katherine and George all the best in their endeavours to be selected for the travelling team.
George is also currently a (non-travelling) reserve for the GB Under-19 team which tours South Africa this Easter.
