2020 WV State Team Posted

The 2020 WV State Team is posted. Steven Sprout had the high average of all shooters a 94.03 to claim Captain of the First Team. Michael Snyder with a 91.41 is the Second Team Captain. First time Team placements this year were Anthony Sellaro and Collin Hopkins.  Lacy Hockman returns to the WV State Team as the Lady I on the Second Team, as Lacy Effland she was previously on the 2000 WV State Team as a junior.  We're glad to see her return to shooting and shooting she has done, registering 7250 targets last year and 1800 already in the new target year. Several shooters would have been named but did not fulfill all the requirements listed below. Congratulations to all!

Team requirements are as follows:



Section 1. The all-state teams will consist of two teams. The 1st team: A captain, four team members, a lady 1 and lady 2 , a veteran, a senior veteran, a sub veteran, a junior, a junior gold, and a sub junior (if two or more are in each category) (amended 2018). The 2nd team: A captain, four team members, and all special categories. (ALL SPECIAL CATEGORIES ADDED TO THE SECOND TEAM AMENDMENT JULY 1997)

Section 2. The state ATA delegate shall determine the team from state residents that are qualified and in good standing with the Association and the ATA.

Section 3. Minimum qualifications: (amended 2009) (amended 2016)- registered targets only – does not include registered league targets (amended 2018).

Section 4. Computations for all around average: 16 yd average + handicap average + doubles average / 3 = all around average. The captain will have the highest average regardless of category, except for Captain of 1st team, special categories will take precedence over regular team member placement. Example: the Veteran with the highest must take his category placement unless he has the highest average then he can choose to be captain or category. Category based on Classification at WV State Shoot.(amended 2016).
