Travis Zeis became the first Bethel Park student to win a WPIAL rifle title in almost 20 years, edging Hempfield’s Lydia Dunn and Waynesburg’s Tayler Burnfield at the individual championships Friday at the Dormont-Mt. Lebanon Sportsmen Club.
Zeis, Dunn and Burnfield finished with scores of 200-18x. Zeis had six centers, Dunn five and Burnfield two.
