Lyon shooting program’s team manager Landon Downing said the team has taken big strides in the past to get to where they are now.

“In two years the team has won back to back national titles and has become one of the top collegiate programs in Arkansas,” Downing said. “They have set high expectations and built a quality foundation for the future of the Lyon shooting program. I couldn’t be more proud of this group.”

The Scots program is also active around the community as they will host their second annual fundraising event called the Zachary “Kern” Lillard Memorial Trap tournament on Sept. 24 at the Independence County Shooting Sports Complex.
