LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - When Tristan Smith is at the shooting range, he is in his element.
This past week, Tristan competed in the Texas 4-H Shooting Sports State Games in Manor, Texas, where he kept his eye on the prize, as he competed with the best shooters in the State.
Tristan fired away and proved to everyone that he is a state champion in three different events.

- Centerfire Pistol
- .45 Caliber Pistol
He would go on to finish second in Smallbore Hunter Pistol, fifth in Sporter High-power rifle, and seventh in Light Rifle.
