YOU'RE INVITED: Annual JROTC All-Service Shootout (9/24)

Posted on Sep. 22 2016 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
The Marion High School JROTC Marksmanship Team will host an All-Service Rifle Marksmanship Shootout at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, in the JROTC Department at the school. This annual event will feature JROTC cadets from programs representing the Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and the Army.

Participating schools are: Anderson High School, representing the Navy; Wayne High School, representing the Air Force; Ben Davis High School, representing the Marine Corps; and the Giants, representing the Army.

“I truly feel that our team will do great this year,” said Marksman Team Commander Taylor Sorah, a junior at MHS. “We have a lot of people committed to the team.”

The Giant’s Marksmanship Team went 32-2 against other teams last year. This will be the first match of the year for the Giants Marksmanship Team.

During a marksman competition, the cadets shoot precision air rifles at targets 10 meters away. Cadets are graded on how accurate their shooting is while firing from three different positions: prone, standing, and kneeling. Millimeters can separate a cadet from winning or losing.

“Marksman is a very hard team to compete on,” said Cadet Alex Flores, an MHS senior who competes with the team. “It is a lot of concentration, and controlling your breathing. It takes time, and the competitors have to manage their time wisely to take a shot in all 10 bullseyes.”

This event is open to public spectators, and admission is free. The Shootout should last about two hours, and end around noon.
