Permanent link for 4-POSITION JUNIOR SECTIONAL RECAP on March 21, 2022

WYOMING, MI – The Grand Valley State University Rifle Club recently participated in the 2022 NRA Precision Indoor Smallbore 4-Position Junior Sectional. The match consisted of 40 shots fired over the course of four positions: prone, standing, sitting, and kneeling. Sectional tournaments are registered indoor matches conducted at numerous locations throughout the country. Competitors may select the most convenient location. After firing, scores are sent to NRA where they are nationally ranked, and any national records are recorded. When all tournaments have been fired and entered in the NRA database, a national results bulletin is compiled online, listing every score for that year’s sectional matches (https://competitions.nra.org/results-and-records/national-matches-results/nra-national-indoor-rifle-pistol-championship-results/).

 

The Lakers accounted for two of the five entries in the local sectional match, which was held at Grand Rapids Rifle and Pistol Club. Leading the Lakers was Kathryn Karas (Carleton, Michigan) who finished in fourth place. She shot a 583 (out of 400). Her top target was a 98 in prone. Connor Wardrop (Grand Rapids, Michigan) was fifth with a score of 347. His top target was a 95 in prone.

 

Karas teamed up with three others to represent Grand Rapids Rifle & Pistol Club. The team posted an aggregate score of 1554 (out of 1600).

 

The mission of the GVSU Rifle & Pistol Club is to provide all students with the opportunity to participate in shooting sports, with an emphasis in three-position smallbore rifle, international air rifle, and air pistol.
