Thursday Highlights:

We focused our work on our shooter. In one of the biggest modifications we’ve ever made at a competition, we swapped out old shooter for a new one. We also practiced shooting, and boosted our overall accuracy to 85%, up from our previous 70%. We were able to participate in our last practice match.
