Joshua Women vs. Rider Women

Ram Stadium in Mineral Wells
Precision Rifle Team just returned from Camp Perry, Ohio. The team
finished 11th at the All Service Nationals, which on the surface,
doesn’t sound very impressive. However, there are over 3,500 Army, Navy,
Marine Corps, and Air Force JROTC units nationwide, which range in size
from 100 to 900 Cadets. After three area, regional, and semi-final
rounds, the top 17 precision teams advanced to Camp Perry for the shoot-off
last week. Out of 4,800 points that could potentially be earned over the
two day match, the teams were so close that final results were determined by
Center X’s… that is to say, not just hitting the bullseye, but how hard you hit
it. The bullseye is half the size of the head of a pin. Two time
Gold Medalist Gary Anderson was present at the event.
Navajo Code Talkers
traveled to JRB Fort Worth on March 20th and had the honor of
meeting with WWII Marine Navajo Code Talkers. These living legends, now
in their 90’s, related remarkably well to the bright-eyed teenagers as they
shared their incredible experiences.
Congratulations Devon and Erynn!
