Martin (Hershey, Pennsylva- nia) of Army, the winner of the Final, ended up taking the silver medal and Spen- cer Brandon (Kingsport, Tennessee) of the Air Force Academy won bronze. Buchanan would com-


plete the rare feat of win- ning a second gold medal at NJOSC by also winning the Men’s Three-Position Rifl e event, as well with another strong score (1165) on his second day of competition. Murray State Racer Ben Es- tes (Ozark, Missouri) would win the Final, but would end up taking the silver medal. Martin would also claim his second medal of NJOSC, this


time a bronze in Three-Posi- tion Rifl e. William Anti (Colorado


Springs, Colorado) won the Men’s Air Rifl e event. Anti will shoot for 17-time NCAA Rifl e National Champions West Virginia next year. In December of last year at the Winter Airgun Champi- onships, Anti set a National Record for his age group. Drew Cheezum III (Centrev- ille, Maryland) of Ohio State won the silver medal in Air Rifl e and Murray State’s Ivan Roe (Manhattan, Montana) would win bronze. Buchannan, Estes, Anti


and Cheezum also earned nominations to the National


Junior Team by virtue of their gold and silver-medal fi nish- es. Prone medalists do not earn National Junior Team status. The Men’s Rifl e compe-


tition at this year’s NJOSC was the largest contingent to ever take to the fi ring line in the event’s history with 192 competitors. Over the three weeks of rifl e and pistol competition, more than 500 youth, ages 10 through 20, made their way to USA Shooting’s National headquarters in Colorado Springs. The competitors represented those that ex- celled during their state championship,


whittled


down from the 2,500-plus participants competing in 86 events in 46 states. The NJOSC program


serves as an important el- ement of USA Shooting’s pipeline development sys- tem in promoting the shoot- ing sports. The states seeing the highest Junior Olympic participation this year included Pennsylvania, Alaska, Washington and Col- orado.
