2372 Avalon North win regional shooting competition
Learning to shoot is an integral part of any army cadet corps training regime.
During the Avalon West zone shooting competition last month, the 2372 Avalon North army cadet corps of Bay Roberts proved they were amongst the best marksmen in their region.
Competing at St. Anne’s Academy in Dunville, 2372 tested themselves against six other teams.
Consisting of five members and training out of the Spaniard’s Bay Recreation Centre, the Bay Roberts corps posted a score of 1,006 in a number of events. That bested their score of 949 from last year.
The team hopes to shoot their way to a top-two finish at the upcoming provincial competition set for April 23-24. If they’re lucky enough to achieve that goal, 2372 will qualify for nationals, which are scheduled for May 2-7 in Gimili, MB.
Members of the team are Rebecca Snow, Rebecca Power, Julie Kavanagh, Vicki Smith and Katie Hiscock.
The following is a breakdown of how the team did both team wise and individually:
• first team overall;
• first team prone competition;

• Rebecca Power — first prone open, first standing open and first overall open;
• Julie Kavanagh — second prone open, fourth standing open and second overall open;
• Rebecca Snow — first prone junior, third standing open, first standing junior, third overall open and first overall junior.
