"We did year one with about two weeks heads up on it and made it happen with 25 kids and this year we almost doubled that number," said Mosinee head coach Andrea Krzanowski.
Krzanowski recruited kids of all ages and even a few who had never even shot before.
"I expected it to be super tough and stressful but everyone is super chill and we are just a big team," said rising senior Simon Barnes.
That super chill mentality turned into a second place finish at the GNC shoot.
"You can see scores go from five or two all the way up to 23, 24, 25," Krzanowski said.
But it has taken the shooters some time to figure out how to handle that pressure.
"Don't think about missing, if you miss it just blow it off and pretend you hit it," Barnes said.
"I have to put myself up there and tell myself 'yeah, I can do just as well as these boys. I'm gonna show these boys I can do it just like them,'" said rising sophomore Katelyn Groski.
All of those skills will be put to test at the state shoot in Rome this weekend. And coming off a second place
finish, the shooters are more than excited.
"We build off of it. We already base things off what we know and how to do it and then we have more tips coming in and people helping us so we can focus on new opportunities,"
Whether a shooter hits one target or all 25, the Mosinee pride is what matters most.
"We are a team before and we are a team after and everyone knows we will always be there for each other," Groski said.
