Jalise, 12, and Justine, 11, come to the team from St. George, Utah, and are avid shooters in their own right. What drew team captain Rob Leatham most to the new additions was their character first.
“While both are very talented, that’s not the only thing that stood out to me,” Leatham said. “What really caught my attention was how they conducted themselves at the range. The combination of such high levels of character, devotion and talent is very rare today.”
The Williams sisters are competing today through the weekend in the United States Practical Shooting Association (USPSA) Area 2 Championships in Mesa, Ariz.
Jalise and Justine are both pleased to be a part of a team that values the spirit of competition and commitment to something you love.
“I am totally committed to the shooting sports, and I plan to make history,” Jalise said. “Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but I will one day.”
“Shooting is epic,” Justine added. “It is the best thing that ever happened to me.”
