Brooke Schmitz (right), daughter of Jim and Brenda Schmitz, was the other state champion from Paynesville. Competing in the fifth grade girls division, Brooke did not miss a shot and scored 35, the highest score in grades four through seven. Leann Nepsund placed tenth in that division with a score of 13.

Paynesville placed two boys in both sixth and seventh grade. Mitchell Mackedanz placed tenth in the sixth grade by scoring 23. Chris Beier, despite a broken finger, placed 12th with 12 points.

In seventh grade, Trevor Stanger placed seventh with 28 points. Ross Jaeger placed 13th with 17 points.

The Supershot competition uses a weighted scoring system, depending on the distance of the shot. The event is timed, and athletes must shoot at least once from seven locations.
