Sutton Senska enjoyed spending time with his friends in town, and one of the places they spent a lot of time together was around Lake Prior. There has been a need for a ramp or dock on the side of the lake to be used for people to enter the lake and primarily to help people get into their kayaks or canoes from lakeside and not have to get knee deep in the water to get into their boat.

When the Senska family approached the City of Woonsocket with the idea to create a memorial in Sutton’s name, city officials asked if they would be interested in building an area for this kind of entry into the lake, and the family agreed that it would be perfect for what they wanted to do in Sutton’s memory.

The goals of the Sanborn County 4-H Shooting Sports program include teaching safety, improving the  shooting skills of members in all disciplines, developing confidence in shooting, offering competitive opportunities and developing a love for a lifetime recreational sport of hunting.

As part of the competitive opportunity, shooters compete against each other at the county level in their age group in each discipline.  The County Shoot placings were decided over the county match shoots from January through April.  The top scores from the match shoots were used to determine the first, second and third place finishes.

Archery records are tracked for scores shot at the county level and state shoot level. Westin Hagman set records for both this year: Archery CWS-R County – Westin Hagman – 149.13, Archery CWS-R State Shoot – Westin Hagman – 148.12

State level results will be published next week.
