While the rest of the school were busy with homework, PW (starting on it for the juniors and getting results back for the seniors), our shooting team, comprising Air Rifle shooters and Air Pistol shooters for both ‘A’ Boys and ‘A’ Girls were quietly having their own battle at the 2012 National Inter-School Shooting Championships [3rd April to 11th April] at the shooting range in SAFRA Yishun. Let’s see how well they did!
A Div Rifle Boys
A Division Rifle Boys event took place on 9th April at SAFRA Yishun Shooting Range.
The team comprises of:
Wesley Leong (11S6E),
Quah Jun Zhi James (11S7K),
Soo Guo Sheng (12S6C) and
reserve Yap Zhe You Ryo (11S7K)
Being one of the top favourite teams to place top 3 across Singapore, the Hwa Chong A Div Rifle Boys fought to retain the 2 year gold streak put in place by their senior batch.
However, it was not meant to be as they fought against arch-rivals Raffles, whose team comprised DSA shooters of national calibre. They tried their best, with Wesley Leong even hitting his personal best of 586/600, beating all others to the title of A Div individual Champion,and Soo Guo Sheng shooting his way to an impressive score of 581/600, attaining 4th for individual placing.
While Wesley Leong tied with RI shooter Glenn Tay, and Soo Guo Sheng tied with RI shooter Kai Siong, Captain James Quah tried to match up to their third shooter in the same detail, unfortunately hitting a 573/600, individual 8th, a mere 4 points behind Daniel Toh of RI (577/600), despite having more inner tens. However, as the saying goes “you win some, you lose some.”, while the A Div boys lost their title this year, managing National Team 2nd, the B Div boys shot their way to Team Champions, ending the 7 year gold drought and definitely showing us their potential in regaining the A Div Rifle title next year.
A Div Rifle Girls
The A Division Rifle Girls event took place on the 5th of April at SAFRA Yishun Shooting Range.
The team comprises of:
Jacqueline Koh (11S7K),
Yang Jianing (11S7J),
Teo Zhi Ping (12A15) and
reserve Ong Wan Li (12S6B)
Again, one of the top favourite teams to place top 3 across Singapore, the Hwa Chong A Div Rifle Girls faced intense adversity this year, facing off against powerhouse RI and AJC, both teams which featured national shooters. Being the underdogs, the homegrown A Div Rifle Girls who starting training together since being in Nanyang Girls High Shooting Team, blazed their way to National Team 3rd, losing to Anderson Junior College (2nd), and Raffles Institution (1st).
Jacqueline herself shot an impressive score of 389/400, while Jianing tried her utmost effort, hitting 378, a score below her normal training standards. Teo Zhi Ping on the other hand, shot her way to a commendable score of 383.
A Div Pistol Boys
The A Division Pistol Boys event took place on 10th of April at SAFRA Yishun Shooting Range.
The team comprises of:
Dominic Cheong (11S7F),
Kenneth Lim (11S7F),
Teo Wen Song(12S60) and
reserve Poh Wei Xuan (12S73)
This year’s A Boys Pistol event was probably one of the toughest matches in this shooting championship, with every school sending their best veterans to compete for the gold medal. The Hwa Chong Team, who were the winners of this event last year, had to face national shooters from Raffles, one of whom currently holds the Pistol overall record, as well as traditionally strong opponents like NJC and ACS.
So this was not much of a test of skill, but rather a competition of who can control the stress and persevere till the end. Kenneth Lim obtained a decent score of 546/600, but this only earned him an individual 6th placing. Dominic and Wen Song fought hard till the last shot and the last few minutes of the competition and managed a score of 528 and 526 respectively. The team eventually settled for a 4th position overall. Our pistol shooters are determined to train harder to clinch back the A division Pistol Boys title from RJC next year. 自强不息！
A Div Pistol Girls
The A Division Pistol Girls event took place on 3rd of April at SAFRA YIshun Shooting range.
The team comprises of:
Phua Ler Woon (11S7J),
Teo Chin (11S7J), and
Lee Ping Zheng (11S77)
The A Div Pistol girls team, trained hard and shot their way to a National Team Placing of 11th. Being relatively new shooters who starting learning the ropes only just last June, the A Div Pistol girls showed us the meaning of perseverance as they strived against all odds just to put up a good show against other seasoned shooters of 5-6 years in other Junior Colleges.
Captain Quah Jun Zhi James is proud of them, and their ability to compete at the National Level, and shooting scores that were well above our expectations of them.
Phua Ler Woon, shot an impressive 353/400 and attaining individual 8th, while Teo Chin scored a 332/400 and Ping Zheng hitting a 322/400. It takes courage to join a new CCA with no prior experience, and it takes character to strive for results. While they may not have reaped any medals or trophies, the Hwa Chong Shooting Team is proud of them for clocking 4-5 trainings a week for the past months.
Presenting to you – The Hwa Chong Shooting Team 2011/2012
James Quah & Dominic Cheong
Shooting Captains 2011-2012
1. Who we are:
Team (Re)-flex is part of the Citibank-YMCA Youth for Causes 2011 group and comprises Teo Chin, Bingru, Ler Woon, Wilfred and Derborne!!
But our team does not only consist of four people!
We are proud to say that we have a whole bunch of awesome awesome people helping us out as well, namely HWA CHONG SHOOTING CLUB, HWA CHONG BASKETBALL, 道具组 and many other FANTABULOUS INDIVIDUALS who are rendering their support in one way or another!(:
2. Muscular Dystrophy Association of Singapore
Sufferers of muscular dystrophy will experience degradation in their muscles. Many members in the MDAS are unable to even walk properly and require the help of a power wheelchair to travel around. Many of them even require the help of ventilators, in order to take in enough oxygen to survive, as the muscles of their lungs are too weak to function normally. There are various forms of muscular dystrophy and these people require your help and support to lengthen their life span and provide the encouragement they would need. We feel extremely compelled to render help to the sufferers of muscular dystrophy, and hope then you can also lend a helping hand to us to improve the lives of these sufferers.
(Re)-flex understands the vast inconveniences that members of MDAS face and strive to help these unfortunate people to lessen their difficulties, allowing them to be able to live like a normal person as much as possible.
3. Aims and Objectives
a) Raise Funds for Muscular Dystrophy Association Singapore (MDAS)
Currently, there is a lack of funds for MDAS to provide care and support to patients as well as for medical equipments and assistive devices. This project plans to raise $30,000 and all proceeds will go towards MDAS.
b) Raise Awareness of muscular dystrophy for schoolmates as well as the public
We have observed that many people are unaware of the intense pain and suffering muscular dystrophy patients have to endure, or even about the disorder itself. Thus, we feel that there is a need to raise the public’s awareness of the dystrophy.

The Shooting guys claimed the gold trophies for both the pistol and rifle categories in today’s competition!
Last year, the air pistol men’s team won college’s first ever medal in the event, but 3rd placing was certainly not enough. The months of intense training paid off. Yesterday, the team consisting of Sherman Lim of 10s7h, Dominic Cheong and Kenneth Lim of 11s7f and Mark Ong of 10s77, left the competition venues as champions, clinching the first pistol gold medal for college. Additionally, kenneth also came out as individual fourth. The joy for H does not end here, as the c division air rifle boys also emerged champions in their event earlier in the day, making it the fifth year they’ve kept the championship title. The shooting season goes on for one more day and we hope to hear more good news from HCSC!
