Bob Jones cadets excel in National Air Rifle League

MADISON – Shooting their highest score of the season, Bob Jones High School AFJROTC excelled in the 2022 National Air Rifle New Shooter League.

At this meet, Bob Jones cadets defeated Trigger Time 4-H Shooting Education Club with a score of 886.1 to 803.0.

Their performance was Bob Jones’ second win in a row. “They currently have a 4 – 2 record,” retired Chief Master Sergeant Ellis Clark said. Clark teaches aerospace science and coaches this group.

Lucy Halter in Bob Jones AFJROTC led the cadets by shooting a score of 253.3. The remaining contributing members were Molly Halter, Logan Jackson and Lawrence Schiber.

“Trigger Time 4-H Shooting Education Club currently has a 2 – 3 record. Trigger Time 4-H Shooting Education Club was led by Nora Wallschlaeger, who shot a 222.8,” Clark said.

The remaining contributing members were Colin White, Kaiden Titcomb and Ayden Strand. The home of Trigger Time 4-H Shooting Education Club is Bristow, Va. Alan Lerch coaches the students.

Bob Jones AFJROTC has enjoyed a bye week, while Trigger Time 4-H Shooting Education Club has competed against Mattoon AJROTC from Matton, Ill.

“These two teams are competing in the National Air Rifle ‘New Shooter’ League,” Clark said. Sponsored by the Orion Scoring System, the league is a national team league and is exclusive to athletes in their first year of competition.

Teams are from high schools and junior rifle clubs throughout the United States. During 10 weeks, each team competes in eight games. Each week, each team is paired with another team with a near equal skill level, Clark said.

“In each game, the teams compete in what is known as a ‘Three-Position Air Rifle Match.’ The match is modeled after Olympic Rifle competitions but adapted to high-school age athletes,” Clark said.

Each athlete will shoot 10 shots in three different shooting positions: prone, standing and kneeling. Each shot is worth a maximum of 10.9 points. The sum of points scored in the 30 shots is the athlete’s total.

“The team score is comprised of the best four athletes from each team,” Clark said.
