"Overall a disappointing night after shooting so well during our first meet against Lumpkin," riflery coach Maj. Robert Wiley said. "Like any sport, you have good weeks and bad weeks. We keep track of our wins and losses in riflery, but in reality, we measure our success on individual improvement."

While Lee led the way for the Tigers, other DCHS shooters had notable scores as well. 

Aaron Anderson came close to Lee's perfect prone mark with a score of 98. Trinity Brooks shot a personal best of 257, and Tritan Brooksher shot a season-high of 225.  

The riflery team will continue its season Thursday, Dec. 1, with a home meet against North Forsyth.
