After all the shooting was finished, the following student athletes won their age group: Third Grade Match Up - Catlin Mullin and Mikey McManus; Fourth Grade Match Up - Hannah Harkins and Jack Casey; Fifth Grade Match Up - Carly McCann and TJ Powderly; Sixth Grade Match Up - Keely McEachern and Michael Bellettiere; Seventh Grade Match Up - John Boyle; Eighth Grade Match Up - Charles Gavigan

All shooters received souvenir shirts and bragging rights on the playground.
