3PAR Championships


Osborn & Kleinhans Earn National Junior Team Spots in National Junior Olympic 3PAR


Some very talented and


dedicated three-position air rifl e (3PAR) athletes converged on the newly remodeled and enlarged Gary Anderson CMP (Civil- ian Marksmanship Program) Competition Center at Camp Perry, Ohio to compete for two coveted USA Shooting National Junior Rifl e Team (NJT) slots as part of the Na- tional Junior Olympic Three- Position Air Rifl e National Championships. Driven by a personal goal


of qualifying for the USAS NJT at the Junior Olympic Nationals, 15-year-old Sarah Osborn (Hampton, Virginia, pictured left) of the Patriot Shooting Club bested 220 other competitors to win the individual gold medal and a coveted slot on the USAS NJT with room to spare. Her qualifying score of 593 and fi nal round score of 103.0 gave her a 3.4 point lead at the conclusion of the event. Osborn’s star is certainly


rising having shown she can compete previously at the 2014 National Junior Olym- pic Shooting Championships (NJOSC) fi nishing second in her age division for air rifl e and winning her age division in Three-Position smallbore Rifl e. Taking the silver medal


was Kristyn Trump (DuBois, Pennsylvania) of the DuBois Jr Rifl e Team with a Finals score of 101.6 for an aggre- gate score of 692.6.

ing’s Youth Development Director Michael Theimer, the fi nals were a showcase of top shooting talent with athletes going all-out for a chance to wear the USA Shooting Team jacket. “We will see and hear more from these young 3PAR athletes,” he acknowledged. “Their hard work and long hours of training paid off for them here at Camp Perry.” The remaining event fi -

Patajo was the J3 (14 years & younger) National Champion at the 2014 NJOSC back in April in both the air and three-posi- tion smallbore rifl e events. The National Junior Olym-

They did so by being the only team to place three competi- tors inside the top-20 fi nish-


Shooting is the most popular and fastest growing form of shooting sports competition for youth of high school age or younger with two different events available. Precision is modeled after Olympic- style shooting and allows the use of specialized target rifl es and equipment. Sport- er is designed for athletes and programs that desire to compete with a minimum of equipment and expense. The CMP, which hosted and conducted this Champi- onship, actively promotes Three-Position Air Rifl e shooting as a premier youth marksmanship competition by providing low-cost equip- ment and pellets as well as training curriculum materi- als and competition activi- ties.
