A strong finish to the year for the Elbert County 4-H BB Team, after competing on the national stage.
On June 27th, the team made the trip up to Rogers, Arkansas for the National BB Team Competition.
Competing against over fifty teams, Elbert County BB Team Coach Rock Evans said that Elbert County made an impact.
“We held our own and we did really well”, said Evans. “Cheyenne Burton finished number one in the nation by shooting a perfect score in the sitting position.”
Quite a few of the kids on the team will move on as they will exceed the thirteen year old age limit by next season.
That being the case, Evans says the program is exploring ways to keep the kids for a couple more years.
“Looking at maybe doing some different things to be able to compete”, said Evans. “Maybe we need to restructure our program, because at age thirteen the kids are starting to get really good, so think what we could do with two more years of them.”
Elbert County placed in the top twenty out of the over fifty teams present.
Evans expressed gratitude, on behalf of himself and the team, to the community for helping them makes this trip possible.
“We want to thank everybody in Elbert County for everything they have done to support us with all the help they have done through fundraisers”, expressed Evans. “Big thanks also goes to the 4-H department, and all their hard work.”
A special thanks from Evans was also sent out to BB Team Coach Dennis Bellew.
This was the last event for the Elbert County BB Team of the season, and they will be back in action toward the end of this year getting ready for next season.
