The UVM Shooting Sports Club Pistol Team takes 1st place again! This is the second time in two weeks that the Team has taken top honors at a championship pistol match. This time it was at the Scholastic Pistol Program's North East Regional Championship hosted at the Harvard Sportsman's Club in Harvard,MA. The match was sponsored by Smith and Wesson with prizes sponsored by the MidwayUSA Foundation. Larry and Brenda Potterfield(owners of the Midway USA dist.) donated to the competing teams' endowments the following amounts: $3000 for registering with the SPP, $3000 for competing in the match and prize money of $5000 for 1st, $3000 for 2nd, and $1000 for 3rd. All this money goes straight to endowments for each team that will be able to withdraw 5% a year to support their programs.
The UVM Team beat out Texas A&M, Harvard University and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy for top honors.
