Granbury Marine Corps JROTC cadets Cody Bogle and Hunter Dowell have qualified for this year’s Junior Olympics air rifle competition.
Both Granbury High School students will participate in the Junior Olympics men’s air rifle competitions held at the Olympics Training Center in Colorado Springs in April based on their qualifying score in the state Junior Olympics tryouts held in January at Texas Christian University.
“Both cadets have worked very hard all year and deserve this significant achievement – this is the first time in the history of the program that Granbury has sent individuals to this level of competition,” said Lt. Col. Scott Casey, the Senior Marine Instructor.  “They shoot just about every weekend at local and regional matches. Both have been very consistent shooters and have served as an excellent example to the rest of the team.”
USA Shooting matches throughout the country, making it accessible for all interested juniors. The program serves as an important element of the pipeline development system in promoting the shooting sports. Junior Olympic goals are to allow the skilled junior athletes to obtain National competitive experience for future development. The program also serves as an opportunity to appoint the top finishers to the National Junior Team on their way to the Olympic team.
The Granbury rifle team is currently ranked third in the nation among Marine JROTC squads and will compete in the Service Championships later this month at Anniston, Alabama.
