Turlock High School’s air rifle shooting team recently competed in the 2015 Service Air Rifle Championship in Phoenix.
According to Maj. Kelly Cross of the high school’s Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps, the team is ranked 18th out of 617 that competed for the service championships.
Cadet Nicolas McKeon came in fourth in Phoenix and will be the first Turlock High student to go to the Air Rifle National Championship in Camp Perry, Ohio, on March 19. Cross, the team’s shooting coach, said McKeon competed with 2,817 other cadets for one of the eight spots available.
The cadets, who were hosted by Arizona State Navy ROTC cadets, also had the chance to visit the college campus.
