Clay-target shooter Bill Jorgensen will attempt to add a NSW title to his swag next month after clinching his first Victorian championship sash.
The Central Wimmera Clay Target Club member, who also owns Horsham business J. and A. Shooting, will compete in New South Wales Clay Target Association’s State Trap Carnival at Wagga Wagga from December 9 to 12.
It will be his first time competing for a NSW title.
Jorgensen clinched his inaugural Victorian championship win at a Victorian State Trap Carnival in Echuca earlier this month. The event attracted 400 shooters.
Competing in A Grade single-barrel championships in a final field of five, he won the 50-target event in windy and difficult conditions.
The win provided him with a clean sweep of medals in the event after he won a silver medal last year and a bronze the year before.
Jorgensen won his category from Alan Cole of Nurmurkah-Shepparton club and Les Comensoli, Kerang.
Thomas Eden of Wonthaggi was overall section winner and Robert Yeo was AA Grade winner.
Phil Grainer from Noorat was the carnival’s overall high-gun winner.
Jeparit’s Zoe Hawker was B Grade high gun, Lisa Hawker was third in a 50-target handicap shoot and David Flavel won a veterans 50-target double-barrel event.
