Houston County 4-H Shooting Sports congratulates two teenage shooters for their recent accomplishments.
Trey Musgrove, a Junior Division shooter, earned the No. 1 spot in Texas Whizbang Competition and Brian Fiolek, a Senior Division shooter, earned second place.
In order to qualify, shooters must shoot no less than six Dbl Whizbang shoots and score high enough to stay in top five across the state shooter list.
Trey and Brian will compete against each other Oct. 29 at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio. All of the club members are proud of these young men and wish them the best of luck.
Whizbang is a cooperative program between Texas 4-H Shooting Sports and Texas Parks and Wildlife department. Whizbang consists of five stations with 10 targets at each station. There is a minimum of six trap machines and a maximum of eight traps per whizbang. Most of the county shoots have whizbangs set up by the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department making them whizbang qualifiers. A 4-H shooter must attend at least six whizbang qualifiers to be eligible to make the whizbang finals in October. The top four scores are then added together to get a whizbang total. Only the top five 4-H shooters in each age division of the state are asked to attend the whizbang finals.
