With the conclusion of her junior career, Maddi will kick off the 2022 season as a “senior” competitor in ARA and as Match Director for the new range in Holts Summit, MO. The new range, built by Maddi and her father, is a 50-yard range with twenty benches and will start holding matches this June.
Maddi says, “The range has been a great new adventure for us to take on, and I love that I am able to go straight into being both a Senior competitor and match director. The range is a way for me to continually be involved and connected with ARA. It has been such a blessing over the years that so much love has been poured into me through these events and by the people I compete with who have become my family, that I pray I am able to give back and bless others the way they have blessed me all these years!”
