The Sutter shotgun shooting team had great accuracy last weekend at the CYSSA state championships in Stockton. Both Sutter’s junior varsity and varsity teams took second place in their divisions respectively.
“These kids have learned so much in a short period of time and they are great shooters,” said head coach Dave Samson. “I’ve never been more proud of a great team of parents and kids,” added Samson.
