USA -( After months of intense competition, the Civilian Marksmanship Program’s (CMP) Monthly Match League has come to a close.

The league is an added competition between North and South Monthly Match competitors that accompanies CMP’s existing Monthly Match events, held at the South CMP Competition Center in Anniston, Ala., as well as the Gary Anderson CMP Competition Center at Camp Perry, Ohio.

Overall winners were chosen from averaged combined scores, accumulated from at least three Monthly Matches at both locations, with lowest scores being dropped.

Most Improved awards were also determined by comparing lowest score to highest score of participants who fired in three or more matches.

A total of 170 marksmen participated in the 60 Shot Rifle competition, with CMP’s own Chance Cover, 25, of Anniston, Ala., recording a score of 612.2 for first place overall.

Following close behind in second place was fellow CMP employee Elijah Ellis, 23, of Kingsport, Tenn., who fired an average score of 610.6.

High Junior Ryan McAndrews, 17, of Remlap, Ala., claimed third with a score of 607.8.

Derek King, 17, of Raymond, Ohio, won the Most Improved award in the 60 Shot match – enhancing his score by a margin of 93 points.

In 60 Shot Pistol, CMP’s James Hall, 32, of Anniston, Ala., bested a field of 63 competitors – firing a score of 576.7 for a commanding lead to first place.

Sandra Uptagrafft, 45, of Phenix City, Ala., earned the second place spot with a score of 566.0, as High Junior Zachary Miller, 16, of Sylacauga, Ala., reached an average score of 554.0 for third.

Most improved was Kyle Klinehoffer, 13, of Zanesville, Ohio, with an astounding 144-point increase.
