Brambley wins prone title

A week removed from winning the overall state championship in 3-position smallbore rifle, Everett sophomore Luke Brambley captured the individual state championship in the PIAA prone position state championship match.

From a field of more than 400 competitors, 40 were selected based on their season averages to compete in the match held at three locations across the state. Brambley’s score of 410.8 topped a field.

“I don’t know if it’s ever been done before,” Everett coach George Kuhne said. “To win one of those titles, let alone both of them, in one year, is a great accomplishment.

“Luke is a talented shooter and was able to put together two fantastic matches when it counted most. Not only talent, but poise under pressure in these big matches makes the difference.”

The Everett team, comprised of the five best individual scores fired in the match, finished in second place in the state overall. Brambley was jointed by Laurel Kuhne, Micah Fmura, Zach Ritchey and Allison Klavuhn.

Kuhne, a junior, finished fifth overall, and Fmura, a sophomore, was 10th.
