Two Mason-Dixon athletes, Tori Mann and Jeremy Adkins, traveled to the Forest City Gun Club in beautiful Savannah Georgia this past weekend to compete in the ACUI’s Lower East Coast Conference Championships. Ten College and five high school teams made the trek to try and take home top honors. The competition was fierce in the high school division however Tori was able to triumph and bring home High Over All High School Female, Sporting Clays First Place Individual Female, Trap First Place Individual Female, and Skeet Third Place Individual Female honors. Congratulations Tori and Jeremy… Way to go down there and show the south how we do it up north!
