Wa-Hi JROTC to host regional air rifle match Saturday - 11/02/17

WALLA WALLA - The Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps cadets at Walla Walla High School will host the United States of America JROTC Air RIfle Match or USAJARC. This event includes marksmanship teams in both Sporter and Precision levels.

The first relay will commence at 8 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, and competition will be held in the small gym and rifle range at Walla Walla High School. Relays will continue through late morning. Competing teams confirmed to attend include Walla Walla, Colville and Spokane. This event will also help determine qualified competitors for other national and all-service JROTC events later in the 2017-2018 competitive season.

Competitors use .177 caliber air rifles, quite similar to those used at the Olympics, and fire on targets the size of quarters at 10-meter distances. Wa-Hi has consistently produced local, regional, national and all-service champions for many years. This event will be another opportunity to showcase the program excellence that has resulted in marksmen winning scholarships and service academy appointments.
