Coached by: Master Chief Scott Pugh

Captained by Cadet Chase Goodrich

Cadets competed by shooting .177 caliber pellet rifles from a distance of 10 Meters (or 33 Feet) in the Standing, Kneeling and Prone Positions.   This year we are participating in a variety of competitions as follows:

 - American Legion Junior Shooting Sports League sponsored by Orchard Park American Legion Post.

 Here we shoot seven weeks of competition against 14 clubs around the state.  Last year we placed 7th by wining 5 of 7 head to head matches.  We attended the AM Legion State Championships/Junior Olympics in February.

 - Navy Junior ROTC and American Legion “postal” competitions:

This is where serialized score sheets are shot locally and mailed in for scoring giving WNY Maritime the opportunity compete nationally.
