Jalise and Justine Williams are not your average young ladies.
They are accomplished shooting athletes with Team Springfield, and they've yet to conquer high school. Jalise Williams is a 12 year old who loves American history, reading and museums. She puts it well:
"I am totally committed to the shooting sports, and I plan to make history. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but I will one day."
You already have, Jalise! and continue to inspire young and old shooters everywhere.
You can watch them both shoot here:
Jalise's sister, Justine Williams, is an 11-year-old shooter with Team Springfield. She does not play video games, but prefers to shoot actual guns, read, and enjoy other hobbies including dancing, acting and singing. She loves school and her favorite subject is science. Her favorite animals are horses and dogs. Justine says "Shooting is epic. It is the best thing that ever happened to me!"
Young shooters such as Team Springfield's William Sisters continue to pave the way for new participants in the shooting sports. These young shooters become women who can compete against anyone on the planet and win competitions.
We wish Jalise and Justine Williams the best scores in competition and in life. You two young ladies inspire us all. Keep up the great work.
