2372 Avalon North win re­gional shoot­ing com­pe­ti­tion

The Compass - - SPORTS -

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;

• first team stand­ing 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.
