KGHS NJROTC claims Air Navy Rifle championship

Fox shooters showcase skills in national spotlight

 The King George High School Naval Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (NJROTC) air rifle team won first place in the three-position sporter air rifle competition at the National Navy Air Rifle Championship held in Camp Perry, OH, on February 26-28.
The sporter team of seniors Sam Green and Matt Reed, junior Elizabeth Hampton, and sophomore Kimberly Heitmeyer fired the match on February 27 and 28, coming in first place with just ten points between themselves and the third place team.  The team of four, coached by Coach James Morgan and the KGHS NJROTC’s Senior Naval Science Instructor, CMDR Fred Duckworth, will be traveling to Fort Benning, GA for the Inter-Service JROTC National Championship on March 26-28.
   Sam Green earned 2nd place  in the  individual sporter category, after a shootout with another competitor in finals.  Finals is a match at the end of competition in which the top eight competitors fire 10 shots in the standing position, taking 75 seconds for each shot.  Finals are shot to break ties between shooters and to establish the best shooter.  Sam also tied the Navy National record of 197 points out of 200 in prone.
   During the awards banquet, Matt Reed and Elizabeth Hampton received their Distinguished Junior Medals for marksmanship.  Elizabeth Hampton accumulated enough Excellence in Completion (EIC) points prior to the Navy Nationals and Matt Reed earned enough EIC points during the match in Camp Perry.
Junior Caitlin Hendrickson was the sporter alternate and earned 4th place among 19 shooters.
   A team of junior Christopher Braccini and freshmen Alessandra Williamson, Matthew Ritenour, and Russell Ryder fired in the precision air rifle category.
JROTC programs have shot air rifle since 1996.  They hosted their own matches until 2002 when the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) organized the Army, Navy, and Marine Corps JROTC championships into Eastern and Western Regionals to be followed by Nationals.  The Air Force’s air rifle program joined the CMP matches in 2008. 
   This year, with the completion of an air rifle range at Camp Perry, Ohio, which also hosts the National Matches in pistol and small-bore and high-power rifle.  The CMP began hosting Service Nationals individually and then sending the top four teams in both sporter and precision air rifle categories from each service to Fort Benning, GA for Inter-Service Championship.
   Sommer Wood, a program manager for the CMP summer programs, explained that Theodore Roosevelt founded the CMP in 1903 after he noticed a lack of marksmanship among civilians during the Spanish-American War.
