After his recent performances at the 2015 National Trap Championships in Wagga Wagga during 20-29 March, Pilgrim was invited to this coaching clinic.
Pilgrim received a Bronze medal in the Junior Point score event; was a finalist in the Open Double Barrell event, and placed 4th in the Junior Double Barrel event.
Held at the National Shooting Grounds in Wagga Wagga, Pilgrim finished his week with a Bronze medal in the Juniors final event.
During the week-long event, Pilgrim placed fourth in the Juniors Double Barrel event. With Australian selection on the line, the pressure was on all shooters to be at their best.
The weekend coming is a big one for many Academy athletes; with Sam Short and Chloe Bibby competing in the Basketball Australian Under 18 Championships as just a couple of athletes supported by WestVic competing on the National stage. Held in Ballarat commencing on Saturday 11 April, Bibby and Short will be looking to gain as much court time as possible, and bring their Victorian team mates success throughout the week long tournament.
Other athletes on National stage over the coming week are: Maaike Vrij, Josh Brien and Matt Jenkins at the Swimming Age National Championships in Sydney; Joel Hennessy, Ben DeBortoli and Max Noble at the Karate Australian Open also in Sydney and Mitch Braiden at the Under 18 Men’s Hockey Nationals in Melbourne.
