CMP Names Top Juniors in JROTC 3P Postal Championship

Out of nearly 4,000 entries received for the 2020-2021 JROTC Three-Position Air Rifle Postal Competition, the Civilian Marksmanship Program is happy to announce the top teams and individuals who will move onto the next stage of the Virtual Championship.

During the JROTC Postal Championship (which ran from September to February), high school JROTC sporter and precision air rifle athletes from across the country fired upon official targets at their home ranges and returned them to the CMP Headquarters for scoring and national rankings.

Top individuals and teams from the JROTC Postal competition will now move on to the Virtual Championship, which will replace the usual regional Service Championships and National Championship fired each year. The Virtual Championship will follow the same course of fire and procedures as the Postal event, with athletes competing at their local ranges, and will be used to determine overall performance honors to complete the JROTC air rifle season.

“Although we’ll miss greeting our athletes and coaches on the range this year, it was encouraging to see the tremendous participation we received during the Postal Championship and the outstanding scores that were achieved,” said Brad Donoho, JROTC match director. “The Virtual Championship will be just as fun to follow in the coming weeks, and we wish all of our athletes luck in that competition.”
