Additionally, the JV team placed first in its division. Redmond won the high gun for male JV division out of 168 shooters. The first place finish marked a first for the program.
Pal-Mac had two shooters finish with a perfect round: Redmond and Demarle. This marked another first for the program, as it previously only had one shooter with a perfect round.
