ANNISTON, Ala. -(Ammoland.com)- Emma Thompson, who has repeatedly set and broke over nine of her own Navy Sporter JROTC National Records during the last few Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) 3×20 air rifle events, did so again on Day 2 of the JROTC Regional Service Championship, held in February.

But, much like her other records, it didn’t stand for long – in fact, it lasted less than 20 minutes.

Thompson recorded a new Navy JROTC Sporter Standing National Record score, but on the same relay, Jesseca Montcrieff outshot Thompson’s new score by one point – setting the record for herself with a score of 189-4x.

Both junior girls gave incredible performances during the Regional Championships, finishing first and second, respectively, overall in the Navy Championship as well as amongst all of the JROTC Services.

The exceedingly talented Thompson remarkably finished with an aggregate score 30 points above Montcrieff – completely securing her place at the top of the sporter class.

With Regionals completed, the final step in the JROTC Service Championship competition series is the National Championship, waiting to be held at the CMP’s South Competition Center in Anniston, Ala., March 23 – 25.

Like the Regional events, the National match is a 3×20 air rifle competition, where competitors fire 20 record shots from three positions: prone, standing and kneeling.

Visitors are welcome into the range to observe the National Championships at any time during the match, with free admission. Guests will also be able to personally see CMP’s new air gun targets, recently installed in November 2016.

The South Competition Center now includes the CMP South Store that is stocked to fulfill equipment and memorabilia needs. Marksmanship Nights, held year-round at the range for the public, allow visitors of virtually any age and experience levels to try their hands at air rifle or air pistol shooting.
