LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The first trip by an Arkansas state team to the 4-H Shooting Sports National Championships resulted in six top 10 placements, including three first-place finishes.

In years past, Arkansas sent teams from Lonoke and Sebastian counties, but had not previously fielded a statewide team for the event.

The members of the Arkansas 4-H team were among 635 registered competitors from 32 states at the national championships in Grand Island, Nebraska. The teams competed in nine disciplines: Compound archery, recurve archery, air rifle, air pistol, .22 rifle, .22 pistol, shotgun, muzzleloading and hunting skills.

The air rifle team of Avery Hannah, Asa Cox, James Kidd and Mikaela Phillips won first place. Arkansas also won the muzzleloader competition with the team of Tristan Eike, Regan Puryear, Felecia Secrist and Matthew Harris.
