During the recent Welsh Open Airgun Competition held at the Welsh Institute of Sport in Cardiff, two Ellesmere College pupils, Ryan Williams in Year 10 and Jacob Roberts in Year 7 shot personal bests.
Following this success the pair participated in a Junior Welsh Squad training session in Henley-in-Arden and exceeded these personal bests. Ryan from Wem and Jacob from Ellesmere were then selected to represent Wales as part of the Welsh Air Rifle Squad travelling to The Hague, Holland in March to participate in the European Inter- Shoot. Jim Quinlan, Shooting Coach at Ellesmere College commented, 'Ryan and Jacob's success is due to considerable talent coupled with hard work. If they both keep developing as they have to date, further representative honours will undoubtably follow. Both boys are extremely talented and have made significant progress in the last two years.'
