Many-time national shotgun champion, Shaun Barnes emphatically returned to top marksmanship form recently, stamping his class on The Stewart Industrial NSC Super Sporting Clays number two courtesy of a brilliant 49/54 shot despite challenging outdoor conditions, and stiff competition at the Jamaica Skeet Club.

The wily shooter, who has a number of national titles under his belt, returned to winning ways last weekend, overcoming a dip in form at the start of the year.


Bruce Duquesnay, who shot an impressive 46, finished runner up, while Andrew Hopwood, with 42 was B Class first place.

Matthew Josephs shot 41 birds for C Class top spot, as well as juniors, first place.

Other winners included, Omar Francis with an impressive 42 to take D Class, Tomas Hudson took E Class with an impressive 40 and juniors runner up also.

Nathan Chin shot 37 and John chin 35 each to finish as E Class first and second respectively in the sub junior category.

Steven James, with a score of 33 was the Hunter's Class top gun.

A total number of 73 Shooters participated in the event, which Jamaica Skeet Club president Khaleel Azan labelled "a record number," while commending the sponsors for the continued growth of the sport.

"We are now making the final preparations for the NCB Capital Markets Junior National Sporting Clays to be held at the Portmore Range this Sunday June 5th. NCB Capital Markets continue to put more and more effort and funds into this tournament each year to make it a world class event," said Azan.
