After an exciting National Championship weekend, the club has come home with a whole bunch of medals. In the team event, there were tie-breaks for all medals. Issha fought for the silver against Kenshou, and when the dust had settled, Issha had won the day and took second place. The Issha team consisted of Knut Högvall, Johan Andersson and Ingemar Karlsson.
The individual finals also had tie-breaks for all medals. This time, the fight for the bronze was between our own Knut Högvall and Ingemar Karlsson. After four(!) tie-break rounds, Knut finally carried home the bronze medal.
In the Swedish Cup, finally, Knut ended up in total second place and won the silver medal for the 2016 season.
Congratulations to all our brave shooters!
