Results for the 23rd Australian Compak Nationals
Around 100 shooters headed to the SSAA Laang Range in Warrnambool from 6-7 May for the 2017 Compak Nationals hosted by Sporting Clays Australia.
Competitors took on 200 targets over two days to get through to the Super Final, which saw Socrates (S0x) Pilipasidis, Christopher Brown, Jack Gibbs, Brenton Irons, Adam DuRose and Brian Mortensen go head to head to decide the podium positions. Sox put in a consistent effort across the board to take out first place, while Brenton brought it home strong to edge into second place, leaving Jack and Brian to face off in another shoot-off to determine who would take out third and fourth overall.
A competitive field also saw the Veteran and Super Vet categories culminate in some very tight shoot-offs for first, while Renae Birgan finished off with a clean round to claim the Ladies crown and young Mark du Rose won the Juniors in front of the Cain trio from Queensland.
Congratulations to all those who made it to the podium. Thank you to the volunteers at Laang who put on another great shoot and to event partner GB Corsivia for supporting the sport.
