Vernon’s Lisa Salt shot down the Doubles Marathon title, a season-long inter-club competition between the Kelowna and North Okanagan Trap & Skeet Clubs.

The local Re/Max realtor hit 1,421 of 1,500 targets to take top honours.

Competitors shot 500 doubles (250 pairs) at each of six Wednesday afternoon shoots throughout the season. They had the option of shooting up to 3,000 targets, but trophies are awarded on the best target score. Only the best 15 scores of 100 each count.

In the A class, Armstrong’s Les Lamerton went 1,419 (all scores out of 1,500) for first place. Vernon’s Gord Fowler ruled the B division with 1,413, while Kelowna’s Pat Bare shot 1,363 to claim the C title.

D division accolades went to Oregon’s Tawnya Gerold (1,288), former Morning Star sales rep Dave Hesketh (1,379) took the vet class, and Kelowna’s Peter Enns (1,284) earned the senior vet crown.
