A youth BB gun shooting team from Pierre has captured another national title.
The Pierre Junior Shooters won a second consecutive Daisy National BB Gun Championship at the national competition held in Rogers, Ark.
It's the team's fifth national title in nine years.
The team broke the team national record set by the 2005 Pierre squad. Two shooters, Samuel Ryckman and Ryan Habeck, won individual titles.
John Forman, who coaches the team along with Gene Garber, says parents have played a major role in the team's success.
The season started in January and Forman says it can be a long year by the time the national competition arrives.
