Wa-Hi’s Jameson, Jenkins shine in Spokane


SPOKANE — The Walla Walla High School JROTC Precision Rifle Team traveled to Spokane on Sunday to compete in two NRA Sectional rifle matches at the Spokane Rifle Club.

The first match consisting of 60 shots fired from the standing position had a total of 16 competitors in the precision category from Washington and Idaho.

Wa-Hi’s top shooter in that match was Cadet Lieutenant Andrew Jenkins, who took second shooter to Randi Loudin from Spokane with a score of 567 out of 600, finishing just a single point behind Loudin.

“I was glad to see Andrew have a good match here,” said Wa-Hi Rifle Team coach Mark Mebes after the match. “He has done a lot of work on his standing position lately and it was good to see it pay off.”

Walla Walla High School’s Precision Team also won the 60-shot standing match with a final score of 1,672 out of 1,800.

Wa-Hi senior Cadet First Sergeant Sarah Jameson won the second match in which competitors fired 20 shots in three different positions. She fired a final score of 579 out of 600.

“I had a little trouble finding a solid kneeling position,” Jameson said. “I am going to have to work on that before next weekend’s match in Oregon. But my prone scores made up for it and my score turned out better than I thought it would.”

Her prone score was a perfect 200 points. She shot 17 of the 20 “center Xs,” meaning the shot took the entire 10 spot off the target, which is roughly the size of a pinhole.

The Spokane Rifle Club is contacting the NRA this week to determine whether Jameson’s prone target will qualify for any state or national records.

“Sarah currently holds one national record for a set of standing targets that she fired at the Junior Olympic National Championship in Alabama last July,” Mebes said. “It would be great if she set another one.”

The NRA 3-Position team match was won by the Spokane Junior Rifle Club with a score of 2,276 out of 2,400, with Wa-Hi’s JROTC coming in second.

Wa-Hi travels to La Pine, Ore., for a JROTC Cascade Mountain League meet this weekend.
