The top shooter for each age group was invited to compete at the District #9 competition held at Queen of Peace in Mesa last week.

Five OLMC contestants won their divisions.
Jaydan, Jordan, Adrian, Scott, and Armaan will shoot for the state championships on March 5th at Notre Dame High School. The Championship will involve about 20-30 students from other schools in the district and is open to the public, so come and root for our fearless falcons! The competition starts at 10:15 a.m. followed by an award ceremony and lunch for the participants. Congratulations and good luck to all those participating!
