was also the J2 gold med- alist in Sport Pistol.


The


J3 (14 years and younger) podium included Katelyn Abeln (Douglasville, Geor- gia), Chantal Kelley (New- buryport, Massachusetts), and Elena Vona (Perrineville, New Jersey). Brown (Twin Falls, Idaho)


was so dominant during his two qualifi cation rounds that not even missing the fi nal due to college obligations could deter him from win- ning his second Junior Olym- pic title in three years. He outshot his opponents by 22 points in qualifi cation. Brown has been on quite


a roll this month having earned two NRA Intercolle- giate Pistol titles in Free and Air Pistol as well. He is the


younger brother of National Team member Will Brown who will compete in upcom- ing World Cup events in Air and Free Pistol. Finishing second behind


Brown was National Junior Team member Justin Ahn (Diamond Bar, California), who scored a similar result as well in Sport Pistol.

Men’s Rifl e Three weeks of competi- tion at the National Junior Olympic Shooting Champi- onships (NJOSC) closed on a high note May 5 for 17-year- old Jacob Buchanan (Spring, Texas) who won gold in the Men’s Three-Position and Prone Rifl e competitions. Buchanan surged to the


lead in the second day of Prone competition with a dominating 624.8 in the second-day Qualifi cation match – 624 would qualify most Open-level athletes for a Final in international competition. Though he only fi nished in seventh place in the Final, the points earned in two days of Qualifi cation plus the Final were enough to secure him the gold. Josh
