Aledo High shooters sweep BDGA Invitational

Gallaher leads with top performance


Aledo students swept the top three slots in a multi-school BDGA (Business Development Group of Aledo) Clay Shoot tournament. The event was held at Devenders Clay Sport Ranch in Fort Worth Saturday, March 2.

Dean Gallaher hit 47 of 50 clays to win the tournament. Jackson Perdue (44 of 50) took second, Darren Loftin (38 of 50) took third and Grason Basshan (36 of 50) was honorable mention.

Schools participated in the morning and adults competed in the afternoon. The adults shot a different, more difficult course.

Gallaher joined the adult event and shot 97 of 100 clays to take second place.

Gallaher credits his father, Michael Gallaher, for his interest in clay shooting and early nurturing in the sport.

“I started clay shooting when I was in seventh grade,“ the student recalled. “My dad started taking me hunting when I was 4.”

This is the 15th year the BDGA hosted a clay shoot benefiting Parker County youth organizations. Proceeds from the clay shoots and other fundraisers benefit organizations such as Camp Fire, Young Life, Future Business Leaders of America and Aledo FFA.
