Ontelaunee Jr Rifle Report

4/11/2018

 

            Our team had a fabulous year in the Lehigh Valley Prone League, including a strong finish at the last indoor match. Our juniors are finding it takes a near perfect score to count for the team. We had 7 juniors who scored 100’s, although only our top five can count towards the team score. Those that counted were Sarah, Madilyn, and Quintin each with a 100-10x, Chad 100-9x, and Emma 100-8x. The league will have an outdoor match in May which will conclude with an award ceremony for the indoor season. 

            The results from the PA Jr Olympic Regional Championship have been published. Ontelaunee juniors Calista and Madilyn placed 2nd & 3rd in the women’s 3-P smallbore. In the “overall” team event, Calista, Emma, and Madilyn won both the air rifle and 3-Position smallbore. This is only the 2nd time in Ontelaunee history where we won both team events. These matches are used for qualification into the USA National Jr Olympics, in Colorado. Calista, Madilyn, and Emma will be at the Olympic Training Center, in Colorado Springs, this weekend to compete in both disciplines. Jenn will also be there to compete in air rifle. Sarah received an invitation for air rifle but is unable to attend. The Junior Olympics get under way this Saturday and finish up on next Wednesday. We wish the best to all of them as they represent Ontelaunee.

            Back in January we held an American Legion air rifle postal match. Our top four made up the team and secured the right to shoot a 2nd round match. Emma Rhode secured a 2nd round individual match because she placed within the top 25 nationally. Since then, we ran both of these 2nd round matches along with our Legion witness, Thomas Islieb. Our team members Calista, Emma, Sarah, and Jeanne have increased their score in the 2nd round. We are waiting for the final results but are currently in 1st place. In her 2nd round individual match, Emma came up just a little short of receiving an invitation to the championship match in Colorado. We are very proud of her and our team for their accomplishments. Thank you Thomas Islieb for giving freely of your time to come be our match witness.

        We have the honor of witnessing Jeanne Haverhill sign a “Letter of Intent” to attend the University of Akron. She is officially becoming an Akron Zip, and will shoot for their rifle team in the fall of 2018. Congratulations Jeanne for this major accomplishment and for reaching this important goal of yours.
