Led by Emma Mackenzie’s individual victory, Eagle River won its first Cook Inlet Conference team championship last weekend.

The Wolves racked up a 12-member team score of 3,364 points to edge Dimond by eight points. Service was a distant third with 3,195.

Five of the meet’s top 10 shooters hailed from Eagle River, a group led by first-place Mackenzie and fourth-place Jonah Wegener.

Mackenzie prevailed in a three-way tie with South’s Michael Stoddard and Dimond’s Malia Main.

All three shot scores of 288. Main was eliminated in the first tiebreaker — total bull’s-eyes — with 14 to the 16 fired by both Mackenzie and Stoddard.

The second tiebreaker was scores posted in the kneeling stage. Mackenzie triumphed there with a 97, one point better than Stoddard.

The meet produced six perfect scores, all in the prone position. Scoring 100s in that stage were Stoddard, Malia Main, Ciana Main and Mackenzie Rogers of Dimond, Kayla Reifel of Eagle River and Allison Klebs of East.
