In the final, competitors fired three rounds at their own school ranges with the cards being sent to the BSSRA for compilation. Mila hit an incredible 296 out of 300, along with two other finalists, but her superior total of 295 from the qualifying round ensured she was crowned champion.
Fellow Perse participants Will Bacon (Year 11) and Sasha Karabasova (Upper Sixth) also received medals after making it into the top 10 with respective scores of 292 and 291.
There was further success for Perse representatives in the BSSRA junior final with Liliana French (Year 10) and Will Bacon both earning medals after finishing seventh and ninth overall with respective totals of 191 and 189 out of 200.
