Krivohlavek Sets Record at Nebraska Youth Smallbore Silhouette Invitational

LINCOLN – Kylie Krivohlavek of Seward set an event record by hitting 39 of 40 targets to win the 2015 Nebraska Youth Smallbore Silhouette Invitational at Pressey Wildlife Management Area south of Broken Bow on Sept. 26.

Colin Wooldrik of West Point and Megan Vrbka of Staplehurst each hit 36 targets.

Competitors fired 40 rounds of .22 caliber ammunition with a rifle unsupported and off hand at metal silhouette targets. Each shot 10 shots at targets that were 43, 66, 84 and 109 yards in distance.

The annual event is open to all Hunter Education graduates who are at least 11 years old and have not graduated high school. This year’s event included 70 shooters from 28 Nebraska communities.

“Competitors did an excellent job of applying the knowledge learned from their Nebraska Hunter Education classes to successfully exhibit the skills of safe firearm handling, sportsmanship and marksmanship,” Match Director Matthew Haumont of Broken Bow said.

The overall team championship went to the 10X 4-H team from Seward. Team members are Megan Vrbka, Zachary Schluckebier, Riley Pollock and Cabe Schluckebier.
