Kingham Hill School win National Schools Championship Clay Shooting Competition 2014
Following an impressive bronze in 2013, Kingham Hill’s Shooting Team has leapt to the top of the podium this year, winning gold!
The prestigious National Championships attracts teams from top schools up and down the country. The boys are delighted with their success and are ‘chuffed to bits’ to have beaten schools such as Millfield, Rugby and Uppingham.
The event was hosted by E.J.Churchill Shooting Ground and competitors enjoyed its wonderful facilities set amidst 40 acres of woodland on the stunning West Wycombe Estate.
The day dawned wet and windy and the challenge for clay shooters was always going to be considerable. Nonetheless, team members Charles Bryant, Benjamin Taylor, Neil Taylor, Samuel Osborne, Archie Fox and Joshua Goddard were more focussed and determined than ever to do their very best and bring home the coveted title.
The competition was long and arduous and the competition stiff. When it was all over there was a long wait back at the lodge before the bronze, silver and gold positions were announced. The boys were ecstatic when announced as winners! They would like to thank their mentor for the day, Will Hayes and, of course, a huge thank you to their coach, Anthony Muirhead.
