I have to believe that you erroneously included VT in this statement and the 196 shooter was NOT a category shooter. If that is the case, the Runner Up was decided correctly.RU: Shooter 2 shoots 196 VT Wins RU gets $100 and a nice trophy.
PS - if you tell us the shoot, we can look up the results and see for ourselves what happened
My original response was wrong !! Sorry. I should have said that when a shooter is unsuccessful in Category, the shooter returns to the open pool and is eligible for Class and in this case, runner up honors/trophy.
