Isabelle Ploechinger, 15, fired a new precision Army JROTC 20 Shots Standing National Record score of 198-14x while competing at Camp Perry for the JROTC Air Rifle Service Championships – a regional event.
Ploechinger is a student at Stuttgart High School, located on an Army base in Germany. The Camp Perry event was her first trip to JROTC Regionals, after having only competed in CMP postal competitions in 2016 and 2017. Her outstanding performance there placed her within the Top 20 overall precision competitors, securing her a place at the National event in March. Ploechinger also earned her first eight points towards the 30 needed to receive a Junior Distinguished badge.
The JROTC Air Rifle Service Championships were held in three locations: Phoenix, AZ; Anniston, AL; and Camp Perry, Ohio, over the weekends of Feb. 8-10 and Feb. 16-18. Rifle athletes in JROTC programs reached the Regional events after competing in the Postal match in the fall.
The final step in the JROTC Championship competition series is the National Championship, scheduled to be held at the Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center at Camp Perry, Ohio, March 22-24.
Like the Postal and Regional events, the National match is a 3x20 air rifle competition, where competitors fire 20 record shots from three positions: prone, standing and kneeling. A total of 28 teams and 32 individuals qualified for the National sporter competition, while 17 teams and 17 individuals qualified for the precision event.
Visitors are welcome into the range to observe the National Championships at any time during the match, with free admission. For more information on the JROTC Championships, visit http://thecmp.org/air/jrotc-air-rifle-national-championship/.
