Ontelaunee Jr Rifle Report

5/14/2017

            The Jr Team excelled last month at the LV Prone League outdoor match. Madilyn won the day with her brand new Anschutz rifle, and Sarah placed 2nd. Neither one dropped a point, and the tie was broken by the “X” count. As a matter of fact, Sarah did not drop a single point through out the entire indoor season, nor at this outdoor match. The results of the indoor season are based off each juniors top 4 matches. This again came down to the X’s. Calista took the top overall honor with an aggregate score of 400, 38x, 2nd was Madilyn with a 400, 36x, and 3rd was Jake with a 400, 35x. In the age categories Abbie was 1st Junior and Quintin 2nd, Sarah was 1st Intermediate Junior and Jeanne 2nd, Emma was 1st Sub-Junior and Griffin 2nd. With our team aggregate for the season only 5 points away from perfect, our score of 2995, 257x is now a new league record. Any team who wins 3 consecutive years, retires the traveling trophy to their club. 2017 marks the 6th year in a row for us to win the league, and we have just retired another trophy to our showcase. Congratulations to the entire team for their outstanding performances.

            During the last weekend of May, Palmyra held an outdoor NRA Regional 3-P SB match. Several Ontelaunee juniors were there competing. This was a great practice match for those who will be competing later this month at the USA Nationals in Fort Benning, GA. 

            Results of the NRA National Junior Sectionals have been posted online. Our juniors are ranked high in several disciplines.

            We hosted an NRA Regional Prone match at North End over the 1st weekend of June. The wind on Saturday was variable and quite strong at times. There was 27 mph gust recorded on a digital meter, but then a stronger one came and blew the meter over. Among the 34 shooters who attended, 8 were Ontelaunee juniors. Several of them won matches within their ranked classification.

            Next week is the CMP National 3-P Air Rifle match at Camp Perry, Ohio. Our invited team has been preparing and they are ready for the 2 day competition. At the conclusion of this match, Calista, Madilyn, and Jeanne will be traveling to Fort Benning, Ga, where they will be competing in the USA Shooting Nationals. We wish the best for them all.
