PPP & 3PAR National Championships


Progressive Position National Championships Conclude With Addition to Junior Team


USA Shooting’s 2013 Pro-


gressive-Position Pistol National Championships concluded after two days of intense competition and the hope is that this dual event showcase will spur the growth of youth pistol shooting for years to come. Two centers of marksmanship


prowess came together to host the fi rst combined USA Shoot- ing National Championship for Progressive-Position Pistol (PPP), July 24-25. The combined Na- tional Championship helped push registration numbers over the 100 athlete mark for the fi rst time in the event’s history.


The Colorado Springs Olym- pic Shooting Center and the U.S. Army’s Marksmanship Unit (US- AMU) in Ft. Benning, Ga. hosted the 2013 Progressive-Position Pistol National Championships. The two-site system was put in place in hopes of helping drive registration numbers and make event travel easier and more attainable for kids and families participating.


Highlighting the event was


relative newcomer Joshua Yoo (Ir- vine, Calif., pictured) who joined USA Shooting’s National Junior Team ranks with a strong second- day performance to win the title


in the Men’s International Stand- ing Division. Yoo shot a 363 on Day 1 and was tied for second before reeling off an event-high 371 on the fi nal day to secure


6.9 point margin of victory over Junior Team members Tyler Volk- man (Columbia Falls, Mont.) and Robert Wells (Pontotoc, Miss.).


Schoenrock Earns National Junior Team Spot In 3PAR National Championships


Rachael Schoenrock (Cortland,


Neb.) sure picked the right day to shoot well.


Participating in


the trio of three-position air rifl e (3PAR) events taking place at the CMP Marksmanship Center South in Anniston, Ala., Schoen- rock earned USA Shooting dis- tinction after winning the 3PAR National Junior Olympic Cham- pionships. Six separate championships


were contested July 11-14 for USA Shooting, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) and the National Rifl e Associa- tion (NRA) featuring events in Sporter and Precision Air Rifl e. Only one title, however, earned


Junior Team distinction for 2013- 14 and shooting her best score of the week allowed Schoenrock to claim it. Three-Position Air Rifl e Shoot- ing is the most popular and fastest growing form of shoot- ing sports competition for youth of high school age or younger with two different events avail- able. Precision is modeled after Olympic-style shooting and al- lows the use of specialized target rifl es and equipment. Sporter is designed for new competitors or those who desire to compete with a minimum of equipment and expense. The CMP actively promotes Three-Position Air Ri-
