    The Junior Shooting Sports Program hosted a sharp shooting competition Saturday morning in the basement of the American Legion Post 147. Forty-one registered shooters came from Seymour, Versailles, Georgetown and locally to compete. Brandon Fuhrman of Otwell, 13, took aim with his air rifle while shooting in the prone position. Competitors had to shoot at 10 targets in three different positions. The Southern Indiana Sharp Shooters local club was formed four years ago and has a total of 12 shooters ranging in ages from 10-16 years old. Brittney Lohmiller/The Herald

    After completing the standing shooting, 11-year-old Xavier Rasche, left, and 12-year-old Jonathan Thurman, both of Jasper, compared targets. "Standing is the hardest position, your arms get tired and wobbles sometimes," Jonathan said. "Kneeling is hard too because your leg can fall asleep." Brittney Lohmiller/The Herald
