The Lady Pirate Rifle Team was named the American Legion State Junior Three-Position Air Rifle Championships last week. The results we based on the 33rd American Legion postal match shot on their home range during January.   

The Championship Team consisted of Caroline Martin, Ashton Arlington, Julia Czernik, and Sunnee Schumann.

The team is currently waiting for the American Legion to announce the names of the individuals who will receive an invite to the Olympic Training Center in Colorado during July to compete for a $5,000.00 college scholarship provided in part by The American Legion and The Sons of the American Legion.

Also, the overall winner will receive an expense-paid trip to the American Legion national convention city where they are honored as part of the Youth Champions Delegation.
