Williams claims two state titles
Posted June 22, 2012
Brent Williams, a resident of Manchester and a sophomore at The Webb School, was recently named the 2012 AIM TN Sub-Junior Champion during the state shoot held at the Nashville Gun Club on June 12-13. The AIM program is the youth shooting division of the Amateur Trap Shooting Association.
Competitors from across the state shot at 100 targets each day, and Williams hit 99 targets each day for a combined individual score of 198/200. At the end of the tournament, one other individual in Williams’s category had the same score forcing a shoot-off in increments of 25 to determine the champion. Williams shot all of his first 25 targets in the shoot-off to win the title, over his competitor, who hit 23.
Williams shoots with the Coffee County Claybusters. His squad also earned first place in the team event for the Sub-Junior category with a combined score of 965/1,000, giving Williams two titles.
Williams was also recently the runner-up at the regional Scholastic Clay Target Program (SCTP) shoot in Christiana. He will be shooting in another state tournament later this month and in a national shoot later in the summer.
