2 score perfect 25's

Ryan Mader was the top A Class shooter this week hitting 24.  Not far behind was Roger Kaschmitter with a 23.  B Class shooter Kyle Bruegeman had a great day scoring 23 while Butch Spencer hit 20.  In C Class, Kevin Kaschmitter was that top shooter, coming in with a 22, while Dave Poxleitner, Ben Havens and Jacob Forsmann all shot 21.  There were four leaders in D Class, Matt Jungert, Kami Sickels, Dylon Bruegeman and Jarrett Frei all had 20. 
Long Handicap top scorer was Jim Ewing, hitting 21 from 27 yards.  Dave Poxleitner and Roger Kaschmitter had the top Short Handicap scores, each getting 23, while Gordon Harman, Kyle Bruegeman and Andy Terhaar all had 22.
