After a battle with cancer forced her to sit out of the competition last year, Emily Ferguson was ready to prove she hadn’t missed a beat at this year’s Tennessee Scholastic Clay Target Program State Championships.
And she did not disappoint.
Emily shot an impressive 99/100 earning her second place at State in Ladies Varsity Trap. A senior on St. Mary’s Episcopal School Turkey Trap team, Emily’s score helped the team earn the title of Top Ladies Squad for the second year in a row.
This year, Tennessee Wildlife Federation is honored to recognize Emily as a member of Tennessee SCTP’s All-Scholastic Team, an honor that requires a 3.0 or higher grade point average, high scores in competition, and excellent community involvement.
Recently, Emily and her family journeyed to Columbus, Ohio where St. Mary’s competed in the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation National Competition.
Emily had another great performance there, shooting a 199/200 which secured her third place in Ladies Varsity Trap.
After a great showing at the national level, Emily was awarded The Rudy Cup. In honor of Mrs. Jeanette Rudy, a longtime Federation supporter and world-class trap shooter, The Rudy Cup is given to the highest trapshooter from Tennessee at the National Championships.
On behalf of the Federation family and Tennessee SCTP, we want to congratulate Emily on her recent achievements.
